Show close time for other time zones
Under the Digital Economy Strategy, the Department of Home Affairs is leading the establishment of the ‘Secure G’ Connectivity Test Lab (the Test Lab). The Test Lab is a key part of efforts to support the Commonwealth and industry understand the security needs of emerging telecommunications networks, and inform corresponding policy development efforts.
The primary objective of the Test Lab is to promote the security, resilience and diversity of emerging and future telecommunications technologies. The Test Lab aims to provide a commercially-neutral facility for industry to test the security and interoperability of the equipment, protocols, standards, and software that underpin 5G and emerging networks and technologies, such as Open Radio Access Networks (RAN). The Test Lab will also support network diversification by reducing barriers of entry for new providers to enter the market.
The Department is seeking to engage a delivery partner to support the establishment and operations of the Test Lab, over an initial operating period of two years. This may be provided by a single company, or through a prime contracting model.
The Department does not envision hosting a tender briefing session. Should prospective tenderers have any questions, please email email@example.com.
Notionally two (2) years, with the possibility of an extension.
