GCOMM private IP network

GCOMM owns and operates an Australia-wide high speed, high capacity aggregated private IP network. The network seamlessly links our customers across the country with our data centres, our carrier partners and the Internet.

Built on a highly scalable infrastructure, our network allows our customers to facilitate point-to-point or multipoint connectivity either in conjunction or independent of the Internet.

Fully redundant

With redundant Internet connectivity at two of our data centre locations, offered via two independent upstream providers, we provide our customers with a fast and highly reliable Internet service.

MPLS based broadband network

Our network is built on 100% Cisco router and switching technology and utilises Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) technology which enables us to manage traffic flow across our network and provide Quality of Service (QoS) to our customers. This means that our customers have more control over their bandwidth resources and can manage them more efficiently, thereby improving user performance and reducing cost.

Carrier diverse

With more than 40 carrier interconnections terminated at our points of presence in six cities across Australia, GCOMM provides access to a broad range of ‘last mile’ connectivity options that vary in speed, contention and price, including ADSL/ADSL2+, NBN, Ethernet over Copper, Wireless 3G and Fibre.
