Sawtell Catholic Care

North Coast, NSW

SCC is a dynamic, innovative Aged Care organisation offering high-quality, living experiences to its resident community. Located in Marian Grove and Mater Christi on the North Coast of New South Wales, SCC strives for excellence in spiritual, clinical, physical and emotional care.

The Client's Challenge

Ensuring its residents remain connected to friends and family is very important to SCC. In search of ways to guarantee long term value for residents, SCC selected NCIS to provide the latest in communications infrastructure. With the traditional wired copper networks being shut down and documented issues around the NBN roll out, SCC required a dedicated fibre design that could also overcome several additional telecommunications obstacles.

The NCIS Solution

With a strong understanding of residential Aged Care facilities and the unique needs of the industry, NCIS installed a Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) IP transport layer which enables SCC’s services to be fully integrated into the network. This simple, scalable and sustainable fibre network will enable future innovation and growth for SCC and its residents and guests, benefiting the facility in the following ways:


Benefits of the
NCIS Solution

Quality of life

With more efficient communications, staff spend more personal, face-to-face time with residents. Plus, with feature-rich entertainment and fast, simple connectivity, residents are constantly entertained and connected.

Quality of care

Improved care opportunities in eHealth, with the ability for live doctor-to-patient video conferencing, remote monitoring, analysis, cloud-based services and the ability to generate and analyse big data.

Space Savings

With just a one communications room at the facility, spatial savings can be used to improve activities for residents.

Future Proofing

Our infrastructure provide a smooth migration to network solutions of the future, allowing residents to age in place by eliminating the need to move them as their care requirements change.
