The Telecommunications Network Boundary is defined in the Telecommunications Act 1997 and:

  • is a nominal demarcation point between carrier-owned and customer owned cabling and equipment;
  • determines whether cabling or equipment is subject to ACMA technical regulation; and
  • is a physical boundary and not a service boundary.

Further information and examples of network boundaries can be found in Appendix J of AS/ACIF S009
