Secure network solutions for federal government

Our network enables the delivery of mission-critical services for the Commonwealth.

As a leading specialist fibre and network solutions provider, Vocus connects people and governments across Australia to the world.

We’re a trusted provider to the Federal Government through our position on the Commonwealth Telecommunications Marketplace (TMP). This enables us to tender for services to federal government agencies in the categories of data carriage, internet carriage, voice carriage, unified communications, dark fibre, satellite carriage, managed WAN, and common services.

We have successfully tendered and delivered a significant number of contracts for federal government agencies, including connectivity and solutions for the Bureau of Meteorology, the Department of Finance’s Government Network Services Branch, Department of Treasury, Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC), Department of Defence, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Department of Education, Skills and Employment.

Our solutions are underpinned by our 30,000km high-capacity, highly secure fibre network connecting Australia’s capital cities to many regional and remote areas and overseas. Our expertise in networks and infrastructure allows us to partner with global providers to deliver unique solutions at scale.

We have a strong history and proven experience in operating secure and trusted networks, including our dedicated Vocus Advanced Services (VAS) domain, which is compliant with the evolving security requirements of the Commonwealth and associated agencies.

Special Projects: Australian Singapore Cable

The Australia Singapore Cable (ASC) was born out of a need for a high-speed, low-latency connection linking Australia to Asia. The 4,600km submarine cable system links Australia to Singapore, and has interconnections with data centres in Perth, Jakarta, and Singapore, as well as all major data centres in Australia through the Vocus terrestrial network.

“The ASC offers a resilient service to meet the needs of our businesses, customers and the wider nation as the digital world continues to revolutionise commerce and how we connect with each other.”
