The Carrum Downs Industrial precinct is the envy of many other commercial industrial parks located closer to Melbourne by providing network speeds in excess of the much talked about National Broadband Scheme. This competitive advantage for Carrum Downs could provide the opportunity for your business to compete on the national stage.This advantage is due to a once small business named ONMIconnect whose headquarters are located in the industrial park. Starting in Frankston in 1997 as a wireless internet provider, OMNIconnect has become a serious player in the business broadband and data centre space over the past 15 years. This local Internet Service Provider (ISP) has cables and wireless networks making it a national market leader with coverage stretching from the Grampians through to South Gippsland.
“OMNIconnect is one of the few ISP’s still providing personal and local support” explains Adam Papworth, Manager Online Services. While other companies are executing cost cutting strategies such as moving support services interstate and offshore, OMNIconnect is committed to servicing its customers using local staff. “People still want to pick up the name basis to help with their critical support issues, and that’s why our customers are long term partners.”
Pivotal to its success, OMNIconnect Data Centre (OCDC) is one of the few non CBD based data centres in Melbourne with two additional data suites, increasing the original rack footprint to accommodate another 48 racks. The OCDC has also been built with environmentally responsible ‘green’ technologies.
Not only is it one of Australia’s newest data centres but the Carrum Downs location makes it an ideal location for disaster recovery and back-up services. Critical in attracting national businesses due to its distance from the CBD, away from the ‘risk zone’ OMNIconnect also provides local businesses with unique services that other regions envy.
