The highly-anticipated Australian-first Ten Gigabit Adelaide network is a “technology enablement platform of global scales” says one of Australia’s fastest and most innovative technology companies, NEXION Networks. 

NEXION Networks is leading the charge in the delivery of cutting edge ICT Services that will be available to adopters of the scheme. Ten Gigabit Adelaide will see a minimum 1,000 CBD and North Adelaide commercial buildings connected to the revolutionary high-speed, high-performance data network within the next two years.

The bold infrastructure project includes the delivery and installation of a fibre optic network across the city, 10Gbps data transfer capability and access to a range of cloud-based services. It will provide businesses like NEXION Networks with the core connectivity to position Adelaide as Australia’s epicentre for business. 

“The way we work and interact with the community, our peers, our city and our families is all changing, as we embrace a smart connected world,” said Paul Glass, Managing Director of NEXION Networks.

“The investment the City of Adelaide and TPG (the Official Network Provider) have made to turn Adelaide into a global leading technology innovation hub allows us to drive solution innovation faster and more nimbly than any other location in Australia.

“We are focussed on enabling local businesses to connect to cloud and critical business applications in the most secure and innovative manner. We deliver high-performance network security solutions that allow fast, reliable, secure access to critical onsite and cloud applications.”

NEXION Networks is a cutting-edge Asia-Pacific Enterprise Technology Solutions provider specialising in the full suite of ICT, Public and Private Cloud, Enterprise Security, Global Networks and Telecommunications solutions.

“We deliver cutting edge solutions that are made possible by high speed and high-quality data connections.

“The City of Adelaide and TPG have made an important and bold step in delivering a fibre service that enables innovation and delivers the core network required for companies like NEXION Networks. The fact that the City Council have actioned Ten Gigabit Adelaide, will put Adelaide on the global technology map. We like to think our innovation and technology solutions will flourish with the support shown by TPG and City of Adelaide.”

On the back of the scheme NEXION Networks has also committed to expanding their business in Adelaide. The IT provider is planning to shift the company Directors and Head Office to Adelaide in support of the growth opportunity and relationship with TPG and the City of Adelaide.

“NEXION Networks are a unique and fast-growing ICT company and see Adelaide and the Ten Gigabit Adelaide rollout as the bedrock for our growth.

“We see our company as a future leader in South Australia and Australia, in the shift of skills to the tech sector. We believe that the opportunity to create a young and passionate workforce in Adelaide, in areas of IT Security, Innovation, Cloud Applications, Smart Cities and IoT is phenomenal.

Mr Glass stressed the beauty of this scheme was not simply the innovative thinking of the City of Adelaide.

“South Australia is one of the top most liveable cities in the world and we will grow our organisation around the support of the City Council and TPG and create a new global leading technology centre using this initiative. We are focussed not only on technology innovation but the people within our organisation and the community our solutions affect. Adelaide is an amazing city, with amazing people and a community spirit that will foster growth. The Ten Gigabit Adelaide journey is one shared and the success that will come, will be felt by all.”
