What the nbn™ access network can do for healthcare
For interactive applications, like videoconferencing for telemedicine, committed bandwidth is recommended to help patients and doctors communicate clearly. So ask your provider about a plan based on nbn’s wholesale Traffic Class 2 (TC2) data product with committed, symmetrical upload and download wholesale speeds.* Talk to your phone and internet provider about the actual speeds you can expect to experience when you switch to an nbn™ powered plan – particularly during peak times. A plan based on high bandwidth at the wholesale level is also important to support the transfer of large files, like radiography, across the network.*
You may also want to look to specialist cloud and managed services providers – as well as your digital transformation partners – to help ensure the security of your patients' information as it's carried across the nbn™ access network.
* Your experience, including the speeds actually achieved over the nbn™ broadband access network, depends on the technology over which services are delivered to your premises and some factors outside our control (like your equipment quality, software, signal quality, broadband plans and how your provider designs its network). nbn is a provider of wholesale speeds to phone and internet providers. nbn™ wholesale speed tiers available to your internet provider vary depending on the access technology in your area.
