SYDNEY: NBN Co is mulling whether to add solar back-up options for fixed wireless towers after the recent devastating bushfire season.

 

The network builder told a parliamentary committee it had reviewed its response to the recent bushfire crisis, aimed at bringing in resilience measures for some of its network assets.

 

Chief network deployment officer Kathrine Dyer said environmental exclusion zones for fixed-wireless towers could be widened to provide a greater barrier against damage.

“We’re looking at multiple options which relate to network resiliency, so how potentially we could fortify our network for all sorts of potential disasters, including things like floods,” Dyer said.

 

He said that NBN Co is “still assessing the full impact” of the bushfire crisis on its network and the planned completion of the so-called volume rollout in June 2020.
