As demand for fast broadband increases, the new National Broadband Network ICT program is designed to support ICT consultants and businesses to assist enterprise customers to migrate their connectivity and business technology infrastructure across to the NBN access network.
The program brings together phone and Internet providers, ICT vendors, distributors and technology leaders to help businesses and their customers optimise their digitisation as they transition to the network.
Keith Masterton, general manager of Business Channels at NBN Co, said, “We welcome Digital Lifecycle Group as our first independent Advisory group in Australia to be accredited as part of the NBN ICT program to support businesses in their transition to our access network.
"The beauty of this program is that we are bringing the industry together to support partner engagements with end customers and we are working with leading vendors and distributors to support their channels and connect them with our retail service providers (phone and Internet providers) to provide a complete ICT proposition to their business customers.
"Our objective is to provide a smooth transition to the NBN access network for customers and to help drive transformation of their business operations through these partnerships underpinned by fast broadband access.”
DLG says that, as an NBN business accredited adviser, it will provide full end-to-end digital transformation support to connect businesses to the NBN to ensure the potential strategic value of the NBN broadband access network within the telecommunications supply chains captured by all clients.
Ian Woollett, executive chairman of DLG and founder of CDRU, said, “We are committed to extending our digital transformation leadership in providing strategic vendor agnostic telecommunications solutions for our customers. Both public cector and large Australian enterprises can plan network transformation, migrate to cloud services, reduce risk and operating costs to ensure the strategic value of the NBN access network is fully leveraged.”
