Australia's National Broadband Network(NBN) this week launched NNI (network-to-network interface) service to give all retail service providers (RSP) an alternative form of access to its Points of Interconnect (POI).

The NNI link product provides RSPs the ability to acquire connectivity virtual circuit (CVC) and access virtual circuit (AVC) directly from NBN without needing a physical connection to all 121 of NBN’s POIs. This enables RSPs to take advantage of competitive backhaul offers from wholesale providers to rapidly build scale, while maintaining the ability to manage their own CVC contention and contact NBN directly for connection and assurance requests.

The NNI link product was developed through extensive industry consultation and came into effect from 2 July 2018.

The NNI link product, in concert with backhaul products from wholesale providers, offers a quick and easy way for retailers to increase their footprint. Being able to buy AVC and CVC directly from NBN Co gives retailers access to the latest pricing bundles and direct access to NBN Co for support.
