Australian Crime Commission to overhaul network

New voice and secondary data network on the cards

The Australian Crime Commission (ACC) will overhaul its voice and networking infrastructure, flagging that it will simplify and consolidate its fixed-line voice telephony contractual arrangements and deploy a higher capacity secondary data network.

The organisation currently operates a partially converged voice and data network between its Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth offices and its primary data network is built upon a virtual private LAN service delivered by NextGen Networks.

In ACC documents, the organisation said it requires a new secondary data network as its centralised server-based computing environment necessitates a high degree of resilience in its data communications services.

The network will consist of a fully-meshed, multi-point Layer 2 (Ethernet) or Layer 3 (IP) private Wide Area Network between the ACC’s six office sites and its Canberra data centre.

The new voice service will use a primary provider for all fixed-line off-net voice services across all ACC sites.

The ACC said it intended to have the new services operational by 30 June 2010.

In March, the ACC said it would establish a panel of providers for servers and related services, allowing agencies operating under the portfolio of the Commonwealth Attorney General’s Department to access servers and services.
