SC1 introduces a new era of low latency connectivity, data capacity, speed and reliability to regional businesses. This edge site facilitates the critical connectivity between people and businesses to the country’s major networks and digital services providers across Australia.
With a total planned capacity of 1MW, SC1 supports the highest levels of customer availability and is backed by NEXTDC’s industry leading service guarantee of 100% uptime.
SC1 is also the landing station for the Sunshine Coast International Broadband Network (SCIBN) Cable Landing Station, the first east coast landing site for a broadband network cable outside of Sydney. The SCIBN submarine cable connects to the 7000km Japan-Guam-Australia South (JGA-S) submarine cable. The JGA cable is Queensland's first direct international submarine cable and provides the fastest data connection to Asia from Australia’s east coast.
Digital infrastructure is the key to regional economic development. SC1 demonstrates how regional Queensland businesses can now gain access to more opportunities, regardless of where they live and work.
In addition to the local delivery of word-class data centre services to the regions, customers are delivered direct, secure and low latency access to the countries most cloud and network dense digital services ecosystem which is housed at NEXTDC. NEXTDC's national digital infrastructure platform is home to the largest network of public cloud access points (cloud onramps) across all cloud platforms, which SC1 connects directly to via NEXTDC’s AXON Interconnection platform.
To support backhaul requirements from B1 and B2 Brisbane to JGA-S submarine cable, QCN Fibre has ‘lit’ up 35 Terabytes per second of diverse telecommunications capacity.
