Chorus is supporting the emerging growth of new technologies by providing the fibre connectivity required for the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT).

Smart locations (NBAP) provide you with the ability to connect fibre services to street furniture, like traffic lights, bus stops and CCTV, as well as other specific non-address network demand points that may be located at a premises, like ATMs, lifts, alarms and cell sites.

Smart Locations require fibre access to support small antennae packed into cell towers, utility poles and buildings, as well as cameras and bus shelters, and wearable devices. As billions of IoT products go online and demand more bandwidth to support 4G and 5G networks, Smart Locations will grow exponentially while bringing smart cities to life.

  • Flexibility: connect fibre to objects or locations which are not at a physical street address. A unique ‘Smart’ address which reduces the risk of accidental service interruption.
  • Future proof: future network capability required for 5G’s increased cell site density. Supports the emerging growth of new technologies by providing the fibre connectivity required for the ‘Internet of Things’.

Benefits to businesses
