The majority of Network Configuration and Description information provided under this menu is sourced from Document TA02, ARTC Network Interface and the Co-ordination Plan. Where applicable, links from this menu will be to relevant parts of this document. All website information in document TA02 will be updated quarterly.
ARTC Network Map – (Annexure 1, 2, 3 & 4 of Schedule E of the 2013 IAU)
Here you will find illustrative maps showing a geographical description of the Network covered by the undertaking in the form of the annexures to Schedule E of the 2013 IAU as amended by ARTC from time to time. The precise details of the Network will change over the duration of the Undertaking but not in such a way as to be inconsistent with the textual descriptions in Schedule E of the 2013 IAU.
