Australia's NBN Co Selects Cisco for Data Centres

Australia's NBN Co. has selected Cisco to provide the data centre computing platform that unites computing, network, storage access, and virtualisation. The cohesive system will support NBN Co's business and operational systems. The initial value of the contract is AU$9.5 million over three years, with the opportunity to scale up as NBN Co's needs increase.

NBN Co recently announced the selection of Global Switch to house its hardware and software systems. In addition to this data centre in Sydney, NBN Co will announce a second data centre location later in the year.
