Home owners and businesses may be able to navigate their way through the National Broadband Network (NBN) with the release of a new guide.
Industry group, the Communications Alliance, is hoping to assist end users — both consumers and businesses — through its draft National Broadband Network End User Premises Installation, Distribution, Testing and Associated Practice Handbook.
The document was created by the End User Premises working group — one of many such groups — in the Communications Alliance NBN project.
“The End User Premises Handbook marks a significant milestone for the NBN Project as we begin focusing on the delivery of services to end-users," outgoing Communications Alliance chief executive officer, Anne Hurley, said in a statement. "The installation and delivery of NBN services will be a highly complex undertaking involving many stakeholders. This handbook will provide a reference point and common language for all involved in the NBN End User Premises environment to explore the issues and determine appropriate solutions.”
The handbook — available on the industry body's website — is designed to help formulate a "common architecture and language for NBN End User Premises to aid in discussion of components, issues and solutions" and bring attention to the need for guidelines and standards in the rollout of the network.
The industry body is seeking comment on the draft handbook before February 12.
