What is Open Access Network?

National Broadband Network 101

Open Access Network, also known as ‘OAN’ is a network that is open for everyone to use, from individuals living in rural communities to large corporations in the heart of the city. It should comprise a cost effective and high-speed quality broadband service available to every sector of society.

OAN is also seen as the most effective way to set up next-generation broadband in low population density areas, where service providers cannot get a sufficient return from investment. It is where a cable operator provides data service to multiple Internet Service Providers (ISPs), and a horizontally layered network that separates physical access to the network from the process of preparing and equipping a network of new services for new users.
