Market Clarity Pty Ltd. Wednesday released its business intelligence service report on Australia’s telecoms infrastructure.
The telecom database tracks information on the infrastructure holdings deployed and in service from 118 different infrastructure owners. The database features key details on 4,500 DSLAM (Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer) locations, up from 4,000 when the service was launched last year.
It also includes 700 access fiber service areas covering 1,480 POPs (points of presence) held by 23 owners, HFC (hybrid fiber coaxial) network coverage from five owners, and 1,770 fixed wireless broadband base stations owned by 66 organizations. Also included are location details of 2G (second generation) and 3G (third generation) mobile network base stations held by four owners, as well as long-haul fiber networks from 11 providers covering 200+ towns served by 500 POPs, and long-haul microwave networks held by 28 owners.
Shara Evans, CEO of Market Clarity, said the SQL-based telecom infrastructure database can quickly resolve complex queries, correlating telecoms infrastructure against Australian Bureau of Statistics population, household and business demographics, as well as service take-up data.
Market Clarity has also added Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping to its capabilities, enabling the production of detailed telecoms infrastructure maps. Evans said the composite picture of Australia’s telecommunications infrastructure investment had taken two consultant years to develop.
“It is a unique vehicle that allows you to see first hand where telecoms infrastructure is located,” she said. “There is no other resource like it available to government, developers, and lenders seeking to invest in Australia’s telecommunications infrastructure.”
Evans said an enterprise customer may want to know the available infrastructure-based options to connect to one or more sites.
“The telecoms business intelligence service can identify the providers that have broadband access infrastructure in every postcode, along with the contact details for each infrastructure owner – providing an infrastructure locater service,” she said.
