Logicalis Australia selected for intelligent networking solution at Darebin and Moonee Valley City Councils

Australia, Dec 9, 2022

Melbourne, Australia – 9 December 2022: Logicalis Australia, an IT solutions and managed services provider, is pleased to announce it has been selected in separate contracts by Darebin City Council and Moonee Valley City Council for the provision of our Logicalis Intelligent Connectivity network solution, underpinned by nbn™.

As a business nbn™ accredited adviser, the evolution of the nbn™ since its inception has been a game changer for Logicalis and our clients. With demand for nbn™ services rising, and the management of network technologies becoming more complex for organisations, connectivity is now critical to success in the digital-first economy. Organisations need to have confidence in their network, not only as the key enabler for their digital transformation efforts, but to meet growing employee and customer expectations.

Both Darebin and Moonee Valley City Councils were looking for a high-quality, modern, and secure connectivity solution to help improve the overall experience of their staff and the communities they serve, as well drive performance and efficiencies across the network. 

The Logicalis Intelligent Connectivity solution is a modern managed service, architected for user experience in a multi-cloud world, where data flows between on-premise, private and public cloud environments including peering and content partners. The solution delivers: 

  • Agility and scalability – scale the network up or down based on business demand and react quickly to changing requirements.
  • Security by design – take advantage of opportunities in real time, as security is woven into the fabric of the network by design.
  • Predictable user insights – access to real-time insights into connectivity and app performance which allows for proactive management and reliable user experience.
  • Sustainability by design – digitalise and dematerialise core IT solutions, measurably reducing carbon footprint. 

Jim Zelener, Head of GovEd, Logicalis Australia states: “Our Logicalis Intelligent Connectivity network solution, underpinned with nbn™ delivers so much more than a traditional network solution. Built upon a robust fibre network that’s designed with the future in mind, our joint solution will see optimised end user experiences realised without fear that the network will be unavailable or counterproductive. This solution lays the foundation for better network performance for both Darebin and Moonee Valley City Councils. 


Darebin and Moonee Valley City Councils join a long list of local government clients benefiting from the move away from a traditional telco approach. Utilising a holistic connectivity solution with Logicalis, both Councils will be capable of further building their transformation vision with other Logicalis Lifecycle services, which include:

Logicalis will deliver the Intelligent Connectivity Solution via a white-glove, managed delivery model known as Discover2Maintain. It is a delivery framework Logicalis has utilised for close to a decade within local government which avoids the burden of resourcing on each Council.

Ryan Davison, National ICT Channel Manager, nbn™ concludes: “A modern network goes beyond just great connectivity. It has a real impact on operational and business performance. That is why we are delighted to partner with Logicalis, focused on achieving positive business outcomes by providing a great network solution for our clients”.
