VIAVI acquired Trilithic in August 2017, in a union of two complementary leaders in test and measurement. Multiple system operators (MSOs) and their contractors can now choose from a wide, unified selection of cable test instruments addressing technologies up to DOCSIS 3.1, and providing the long-term economic benefits of efficiently minimizing leakage in home networks.
Trilithic was founded in 1986 as an engineering and assembly company that built and designed customer-directed products for telecommunications, military, and
industrial customers. From its modest beginnings as a two-man engineering team, Trilithic grew over the years and broadened its offerings of RF and microwave components by adding broadband solutions to its product line. Broadband Instruments and Systems offering test, analysis, and quality management solutions for the major cable television systems worldwide.
“The landscape will be
peppered with thousands, if not tens of thousands of these micro centres around
Australia and New Zealand over the next decade.”
That’s according to Schneider Electric vice
president of secure power for data power, Joe Craparotta. In October 2022, he
told the Australian Financial
Review that the region’s appetite for data storage and processing speed
would continue to accelerate at an incredible rate over the coming three to
But this appetite must be satiated by some
substantial development in the form of an enormous data centre network —
thousands of which are being scattered across cities, towns and everywhere in
As TMG specialises in the installation and
testing of equipment that keeps these data centres running, we’re providing
this article as a touchpoint to understand the depth and breadth of data
centres in Australia.
For any other information regarding OTDR and
PIM testing, 10g/100g/400g testing and more, get in touch with our friendly
A data centre is a physical facility which
organisations can use to contain critical infrastructure such as routers,
servers, switches, backups, storage systems and more.
In essence, they are the digital home of any
enterprise which can’t afford to store all of these precious resources on
It can also be far more secure and
cost-efficient for a business to store such infrastructure in a data centre
where fire suppression, security, ventilation and uninterruptible power
supplies (UPS) are optimised and maintained (as compared to on site).
Data centres have become increasingly
important to any business with an online presence as the collection and
management of customer data has become pivotal to success.
The undeniable growth in data centres has
been driven by a handful of factors. A move away from traditional offices and
toward remote working arrangements has played a big part, as rising office
costs rule out the option of onsite data storage for many businesses.
The physical footprint of data centres is
also impacted by the need to constantly run cloud-based technologies,
artificial intelligence, and communications across global businesses.
A report from CBRE — a global
leader in commercial real estate investment — released a report in 2022 which
found a 29% increase in interest toward the data centre sector. This validates
our suspicions that data centre demands are indeed on the rise.
So, you may be asking yourself, “Where are
Due to their backend nature, data centres
don’t have to be visually appealing or even well signposted. This means they’ll
often lurk behind chain link fences, in storage facilities, or as close to the
local power generation facility as possible.
That is, you’re somewhat likely to pass one
on most days without ever noticing it.
If you are interested to know their exact
locations however — perhaps you’ve been tasked with tracking and testing some
equipment — there are some helpful resources online.
Datacentremap.com is a terrific resource
which maps all 137 major data centres across Australia’s metropolitan
Sydney (31) is home to the most, followed
closely by Melbourne (30) and Brisbane (22).
In fact, Sydney is home to six of the 10
largest data centres in Australia, as measured by the team at Fasterweb.
The largest is Equinix SY1 which houses 7.2MW
of rack power on more than 3000 square metres — also making it one of the most
network dense sights in Australia. This facility serves over 179 providers from
all around the world, connecting Australia with pivotal trading partners.
The largest in Melbourne is the NextDC M1
data centre, located in Port Melbourne, and offering a 100% uptime guarantee.
This is the only facility in Victoria which operates at the industry-leading
NABERS 5-star rating for energy efficiency.
Brisbane’s NextDC B1 data centre is the sixth
largest in Australia and connects to cloud platforms such as AWS, IBM Cloud and
