They initially won a $10 million purchase order for "test laboratory equipment and systems to support early release sites". The optical transmission equipment is to be used to provide connectivity between fibre access nodes and points of interconnect.

 

What is surprising, is Nokia-Siemens said that the NBN Co's network required connectivity at 10, 40 and 100 Gbps.
