The Nextgen Network project comprised the design, construction, commissioning, operations and maintenance of 8,400km of ultra-high bandwidth fibre optic cable network connecting terminal or primary nodes located in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

The design and construction of the Nextgen Network remains one of the largest single infrastructure projects undertaken in Australia.

The network utilises state-of-the-art optical fibre technology and incorporates 800Gbps Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM equipment). The fibre optic cores are capable of supporting 40Gbps wavelength for use with future 2.4Tbps optic fibre transmission systems.

On behalf of the client, Ventia provided the capacity for high-speed communication services to communities and businesses throughout Australia, including approximately 70 regional centres, many of which now have access to broadband telecommunications services for the first time.
