About Us
We're an agile and experienced Australian team, looking to help fill the gap when it comes to Network Engineering and consulting.

For the past 10 years, we have helped small, medium and large businesses as a leading provider of network engineering and automation solutions in Australia. With over 10 years of experience and specialisations in BGP, Switching Routing, Network Design, Auditing, Enterprise Wi-fi Network Automation and Optimisation, our team can handle any network challenge with agility and efficiency.

Our two senior staff network engineers are assisted by our core sales and admin team, and our work has crossed different sectors (including aged care, mining, communications and more) and vendors to deliver customised and cost-effective solutions for our clients. Whether it is a simple configuration task or a complex network audit, the io Networks team can leverage their proprietary automation system CENOS® and their deep and detailed auditing toolset via SECURE to speed up and protect network performance.

Our focus is a commitment to innovation and excellence in network engineering and automation, as well as dedication to our clients and their needs. We have spent the last decade working across a wide range of use-cases, including RSP creation, datacenter buildouts, GPON design and rollouts, and Wi-Fi auditing. Our custom quotes mean every single client has a solution built to their budget, timeframe and performance benchmark.
