Ten Gigabit Adelaide Launched in Australia

  • Prysmian Group

MILAN — Ten Gigabit Adelaide, a fiber optic data network specifically designed for big data users in Adelaide, Australia, has launched thanks to a partnerhship between the Prysmian Group, a provider of cable systems to the telecom industry, and TPG Telecom.

Prysmian supplied TPG Telecom a solution which included its Flextube and MINISM@RT mini loose tube cables. These next generation cables feature significantly reduced diameter size compared to standard loose tube cables as well as BendBright, Prysmian’s high-end bend insensitive fiber. This combination allows network owners to reduce their Total Cost of Ownership as well as future proofing the network for future upgrades. Prysmian also supplied their range of large LMJ joints plus installation training in Adelaide, thus offering a full Prysmian solution.

Enabling Smart City Systems

10 Gigabit Adelaide is a program to connect the city with a grid of fiber-optic cable, giving every business the ability to access 10 Gbps capacity connectivity. The high capacity digital web that will span the center of the city will allow it to run one of the smartest transport systems in the country. In the first phase traffic lights, sensors, cameras and LED street lights can all be interconnected. In the second phase, the City is already planning for connected and autonomous transport, using the high speed fiber optic network for the high capacity data transfer between vehicles and a central traffic management hub.

Ten Gigabit Adelaide will particularly benefit data-intensive industries such as the creative, biomedical, finance, defense, advanced manufacturing, information management and cyber security sectors. These are the industries that are seeing significant jobs growth which will employ thousands of South Australians in the future.
