Embedded Networks


Active Utilities is the leader in Embedded Networks for multilevel developments, commercial and retail complexes, residential estates and greenfield estates.

Embedded network (EN) is the term used to describe a private electricity distribution network for a multi tenanted building, such as an apartment block or a retail complex, where the tenants join to form a ‘buying group’. Procurement of electricity is managed at a cheaper bulk rate via centralized purchasing on behalf of multiple tenants.

Embedded Networks are suited to multi tenanted buildings which have the benefit of one controlling entity.

Benefits of an Embedded Network to a Developer / Property Manager

  • Infrastructure savings in the implementation of the Embedded Network
  • Potential for an additional revenue stream from on selling utilities
  • Private Metering technology which can add to Green Star initiatives

Benefits of an Embedded Network to a Tenant

  • Access to significantly discounted rates
  • A more responsive and personalized level of service than is usually associated with the utilities industry
  • Online access to account and billing history
  • Maintaining “freedom of choice” when selecting an electricity provider.

Fibre to the Premise (FTTP)


A Developer can install a Fibre to the Premise (FTTP) network, provision multiple building services over the network and still give tenants access to the outside high speed network environment even if the NBN has not yet been connected in their area.

Active Utilities COBS Network (Consolidation of Building Services) provides a more advanced network at a lower cost, which will future proof any building. Active Utilities
provides a full open source carrier grade Network that is 100% NBN compliant, delivering industry grade technologies to a site more efficiently and more practically to meet the needs of multi-tenant estates and buildings.

Benefits of a private network include:

  • Multi-use infrastructure – a single cabling network for multiple services including Intercom, Fire Services, CCTV, Access control, Energy monitoring etc.
  • A hybrid conduit / cable tray can be utilized for most the installation, without a full conduit pathway being required
  • Typically, the Active Utilities design dictates that equipment is installed in an access panel outside of the apartment, as opposed to NBN’s requirements to install equipment inside the apartment
