On Q Communications Townsville data centre is a TIA-942 Tier 3 facility, centrally located in the Townsville central business district. With a close proximity to state government disaster management facilities, access and availability during natural disasters is improved. A non-descript concrete and masonry structure houses the data centre, having been selected deliberately as a secure and inconspicuous building. Redundant telecommunications, power and cooling infrastructure provide assurance that the facility can operate with planned or unplanned maintenance on multiple systems. With more than six carriers on the doorstep, connectivity can be arranged through the On Q Communications network, or through other carriers if preferred.
