In a statement, the company said it was providing almost 25% of Enterprise Ethernet services, including networks for major customers in rural and regional areas. The latter is expected to make Vocus the top provider of services on the NBN Business Satellite.
Vocus said it had reached this target after winning a number of large. complex deals which needed fibre connectivity and network solutions to multiple sites across state, national and international boundaries.
Included were deals with the Bureau of Meteorology, Northern Minerals, South Australia Health and NSW Health, for which Vocus was using both its own network and NBN enterprise services.
"Having our own extensive national fibre network and a team of world-class technical experts is extremely valuable in how we deliver services to enterprise and government customers," he said.
"Since mid-2019, we've steadily grown our capability to offer the full suite of NBN enterprise services. This now allows us to provide the most cost-effective mix of our own fibre and third-party fibre such as NBN to deliver complex network solutions for major contracts.
"Our approach is all about providing customers a brilliant network experience and making it simple and easy to connect."
In its NSW Health deal, a good example of its use of NBN is offering a competitive advantage and delivering value to customers, Vocus provides point-to-point Ethernet services for hospitals and health agencies across 80 sites, all on NBN Enterprise Ethernet, in regional New South Wales.
The upgrade to a Health Wide Area Network will facilitate improvements to the quality of care NSW Health provides to people in the Wagga Wagga, Queanbeyan, Dubbo, Coffs Harbour and Lismore regions.
Wildblood said NBN's recent successes in the business market showed that there was a workable model for the government monopoly to function as a wholesaler, supporting customers who wanted to use NBN fibre along with existing fibre from providers like Vocus.
