Before Installation for Next Gen NBN

  • NetLink Trust’s authorised contractors will liaise with you on the installation of optic fibre cables and accessories in the Main Distribution Frame (MDF) room.

     

    NetLink Trust will utilise existing building ducts, cable trays and trunkings from the MDF room. This will facilitate the provision of fibre broadband services to your tenants. The use of existing facilities ensures minimal disturbance to your tenants.

     

    In cases where clusters of linked buildings share a postal code, the fibre will be deployed to the Main Distribution Frame (MDF) room, which serves that cluster.

     

    For buildings without a MDF room, a node may be installed.

  • NetLink Trust will arrange a site survey two working days prior to the installation. You or a representative with knowledge of your building structure and cable routing is required to be present at this site survey. Thereafter, an installation appointment will be arranged between yourself, your tenant and NetLink Trust.

  • Once the optic fibre leaves the Main Distribution Frame room or fibre Distribution Point, the routing of the optic fibre will leverage on existing telecommunications facilities to minimise disruptions. If the use of existing telecommunications facilities is not available, flexible conduits (soft PVC tubings) will be used instead.

     

    If you wish to conceal the optic fibre in existing cornices, false ceilings or walls, you will need to arrange for your own external contractor for these works.

  • Once the optic fibre reaches the tenant’s premises from the outside, the installation of the optic fibre will leverage on the existing telecommunications facilities to minimise disruptions. If the use of existing telecommunications facilities is not available, flexible conduits will be used instead.

     

    If your tenant wishes to conceal the optic fibre in existing cornices, false ceilings or walls, your tenant will need to arrange for his/her own external contractor for these works. NetLink Trust’s appointed contractor will only lay the optic fibre from outside your tenant’s premises to the Termination Point (TP) inside his/her premises.

     

    The TP is to be installed in the tenant’s premises. The TP is a small box in which NetLink Trust will terminate the optic fibre in the premises. The TP should be installed near an AC power point and/or telephone points in your tenant’s server room.

     

    If the tenant has a LAN network, he/she may also choose to install the TP near his/her structured cabling termination box. The tenant should not obstruct the TP in any way once installed.

     

    Upon the completion of the installation, your tenant’s Next Gen NBN services are ready to be activated by their Retail Service Provider.

  • Building owners/managers are requested to provide NetLink Trust access to the Main Distribution Frame rooms and telecoms risers to facilitate the installation of optic fibre cables and accessories.
