Answering your NBN questions


As the NBN rollout gathers pace, more alarm installers are asking the question, "Will my Ness control panels work with the NBN?"

The answer is YES! All Ness diallers will work as designed on the NBN and are already successfully connected back-to base at sites around the country.

Ness dialler products are built to comply with Australian telecommunication regulations which means they are compatible with the analogue port on the NBN Network Termination Device (NTD). Just check that the Retail Service Provider (RSP) for the premises will provide service on the UNI-V voice port and that the port has battery backup.

Also, you should discuss battery backup with your client to ensure they're aware of which services will be available, and for how long, during a power failure.

Ness Corporation R&D department is liaising with NBN Co and constantly monitoring developments to allow us to provide new information as it comes to hand.

If you have any questions about specific Ness products please contact the Ness Corporation National Customer Service Centre by email or phone 1300 551 991.
