Emerson Wins $100 Million Contract for Australia's NBN

Emerson Network Power has been selected by the National Broadband Network Company (NBNCo) to design, supply, install, and commission 10 network facilities centers across Australia as part of the rollout of Australia's National Broadband Network (NBN). The contact is valued in excess of $100 million.

Emerson will supply it full product suite, including high-efficiency power systems (Trinergy and ASCO); Liebert precision cooling systems and SmartAisle optimization; SiteScan infrastructure monitoring and management; and fully integrated, factory-tested modular housing systems. The products are complemented by Emerson's in-house integration expertise, combining solution engineering, end-to-end project management, global supply chain and logistics, and site civil works (via partnerships with Silcar and Greenbox Architecture).

“Our approach reflects a dimension of our business that differentiates us – our ability to create integrated solutions that bring core IT and telecommunications components together,�? said Scott Barbour, business leader for Emerson Network Power. “This capability will deliver tremendous value not only to NBNCo but also to the general public as beneficiaries of the technology, through efficiencies in network rollout and the highest levels of network performance.�?
