Cabling NBN Sunshine Coast
As the National Broadcast Network (NBN) makes its debut, cabling NBN across the nation will be the challenge. While the advantages of this new digital network will be considerable, especially for communities in the Sunshine Coast such as Noosaville, there are still challenges that must be faced and overcome for the network to be fully established.
With so many IT systems that still use old technology, integrating that, with NBN will be daunting. This includes areas that still use analog phone lines, fax machines along with fax servers, and Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP). Such areas will have to keep up and make the transition to the new NBN system.
It was not that long ago when sending documents over phone lines via fax was considered a breakthrough in technology. Faxing documents was fast, secure, and reliable. What started as stand-alone fax machines evolved into multi-function units that included printers which was of great benefit to businesses and particularly health centres.
Even as emails became more popular, faxing documents was still preferred thanks to their inherent security. But that has changed as new digital technologies have made the transmission of important information secure.
Integration of Data Digital Network in Noosaville
The purpose of NBN is to integrate different systems into a single, digital platform. When you consider the number of fax machines still in use in Noosaville after decades of existence, ensuring that different technologies work together is crucial. This is especially true with data in the medical field where major problems with the network have occurred because doctors didn’t receive vital information over fax lines.
Whether due to busy lines, sending the data to the wrong number or department, or just being overlooked with so many sharing the same fax machine, NBN is designed to help speed up and smooth out the process of delivering vital information.
The combination of volume and outdated technology has created more delays and mistakes that is only building with the old systems. NBN will integrate everything into a single system that greatly expands the volume of information that can be carried. For hospitals, this means fewer incidents that might delay important information being sent to doctors.
As each area is announced, there will be an 18-month window to make the change to the new computer network. Once that 18-month period has ended, the old broadband networks will be dismantled. Yet there are challenges for NBN with the older technology that must be addressed.
Future of NBN
NBN will allow for cloud-based faxing to continue. This means providing the security of traditional faxing machines with the expanded volume that the digital network provides. Since documents can be stored on the system, they can be accessed and downloaded easier than ever. No more busy signals, no more missed phone numbers, and most importantly, no overlooking of important information which can be checked online in seconds.
Once the cabling NBN is completed for an area, the data network created will revolutionize how information is transmitted. This means communities along the Sunshine Coast, including Noosaville will see a wholesale change in their communications.
