Fibre network success drives expansion to more Sydney developments, says developer


Property developer Kanebridge claims that a fibre-based network that delivers super-fast Internet has been so successful at a masterplanned community in Sydney’s north west that it is now scaling the service to two more developments currently under construction.

According to Kanebridge, the fibre network and smart-home automation have been the main selling point at the Marsden Central development in Sydney’s north-west, with 100% of stage one apartments selling in less than 4 months – and it is now scaling the service to The Hugh in Kellyville and The Wexford in Schofields.

As reported by iTWire last month, broadband infrastructure provider FiberCorp is installing fibre technology across property developments in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne — including Kanebridge’s Marsden Central — claiming the delivery of Internet connections on a standard plan 100 times faster than the fastest speed offered by NBN Co.

Kanebridge says The Hugh $165 million development is the first that will have the fibre Internet service live, with completion due by the fourth quarter of 2019.

And The Wexford is a $120 million residential development of 88 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments across two buildings at Schofields, due to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2019, with commencement of the fibre network installation in the second quarter of 2019.

FiberCorp uses US broadband communications provider Calix, which is registered by the Australian Communications and Media Authority.

Kanebridge says the network being installed at The Hugh and The Wexford is Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON1) technology, based on a fibre-to-the-premises network that connects data centres to property boundaries, and into buildings and apartments with fibre cabling.

In addition, FiberCorp and Kanebridge are investing in base infrastructure that they says will enable the GPON2 technology from Calix.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
