The City of Greater Geelong has partnered with ENE.HUB – part of digital infrastructure provider Indara – to deliver a range of digital infrastructure projects across the city to improve community connectivity, enhance safety and improve environmental management.
ENE.HUB has installed a network of its SMART.NODEs™ across the Greater Geelong region and continues to manage and maintain them as part of a 20-year Digital Infrastructure Agreement.
The City, in partnership with AARNet, delivered 22km of new high-speed optical fibre, providing critical backbone infrastructure for a fleet of 54 SMART.NODEs™.
The SMART.NODEs™ offer a range of essential services such as free public Wi-Fi, intelligent lighting, IoT gateways, and CCTV, enhancing connectivity, security, and convenience for users.
The Geelong community benefit from increased connectivity and safety in multiple precincts such as the Geelong Arts Centre, Kardinia Park, the iconic Waterfront and the North Bellarine Aquatic Centre.
This work was undertaken as part of the City-led Smarter Suburbs Program, which is enabling connectivity from the city centre to the northern suburbs of Greater Geelong. The initiative was also supported by funding from the Victorian Government through the Connecting Regional Communities Program.
