Consultants from across the board are being touted as the best and brightest to help with the rollout of the NBN.
They include veteran telco executives, digital-first thinkers, technologists and technology analysts.
It is a wide-ranging list of people that have a deep understanding of the technology, the technology that is coming, and the business models of the telcos.
It also includes the NBN itself.
In the end, the competition for this job is fierce.
The NBN is now set to become the third-largest telecommunications network in the world.
But with all the competition, it is going to be tough for a consultant to get into the mix.
We’ve highlighted some of the top candidates who are considered as key to the NBN rollout.
What is the NBN, anyway?
The NBN, short for National Broadband Network, is a $60 billion national fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) rollout plan which will be rolled out across all states and territories by 2023.
The scheme aims to connect all homes, businesses and public transport in Australia, with a minimum of investment in new infrastructure.
As the NBN project has been in the works for more than a decade, the rollout has been plagued by technical glitches and delays.
The latest report from the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) last month found that only around one in 10 households and businesses in the country have had their broadband connections upgraded by the end of 2021.
That’s a relatively low figure when you consider the NBN has a projected cost of $37 billion and is due to be finished by 2026.
That means the average NBN user has spent almost a year and a half on their NBN connection, or $600 per month.
While the average Australian will be able to connect to the network, the average home will still be spending about $800 per month on their internet connection, which is a far cry from the $900 a month that most of us are paying for internet now.
What are the key technologies behind the NBN that have been controversial?
FTTP technology is the technology used to deliver fibre-optic networks across Australia, and is a relatively cheap option compared to fibre-coaxial (Fibre-to/Fibres-to) networks.
Unlike other technologies, which require copper cables to deliver the technology to the node, FTTP can be delivered over a single copper cable.
It can also be delivered by satellites or fibre-line-to, which can also deliver the same technology.
This allows the NBN to deliver fast speeds of up to 1Gbps over a small area, and also a high degree of reliability.
There are three main technologies that NBN Co is developing that can deliver fibre in this way.
The first technology is called fibre-cable modems (FCMs), which are small, low-power fibre-based technology.
These FMCMs can be used to connect small areas to high-speed fibre networks, or even provide connectivity for remote areas.
The second technology is fibre-core, which NBN Co uses to create a network that is the backbone of the network.
The third technology is FMCV technology, which uses a copper core to create more dense, faster, and more flexible networks.
What makes NBN Co different from other technology companies?
NBN Co has made major technological advancements over the years, including the rollout and upgrade of fibre to the premises (FTTH) technology, as well as a number of other innovations, such as a fibre-on-premise (FoP) rollout.
These have led to the project being much more efficient and cost effective.
These improvements have allowed NBN Co to deliver a network with the highest speeds and lowest latency on the planet, which has led to some of NBN Co’s competitors saying the NBN is ‘behind the curve’.
It is also said to be one of the most expensive technologies in the NBN’s development.
In addition, NBN Co relies heavily on its proprietary fibre-networking technology to deliver its services, and it is also working on new technologies such as fibre-interconnect technology, or FIP.
The other major advantage NBN Co boasts about is its ability to offer faster broadband speeds.
FPGAs, which are the technology NBN Co develops for its FMCM technology, allow the company to deliver faster speeds, and to do so with minimal cost.
FIPs, which work similarly to FMCNs, allow NBN Co, and other telcos, to deliver broadband speeds that are up to 10 times faster than FTTH.
In 2016, NBN launched a new fibre-recovery plan that will give Telstra and Optus the ability to repair and upgrade their copper networks over time.
This means that NBN can continue to offer high-quality services to Australians without having to invest in upgrades, or upgrade the network themselves.
The plan will also give NBN Co the ability have its copper network upgraded to a new technology called Fibre-Cable Modems (F
