Symbio Networks to Expand to all Telstra CCAs
Symbio (News - Alert) Networks, a provider of wholesale VoIP managed services and a subsidiary of MyNetFone, is planning to invest a hefty $3 million over the next three years to extend its number porting and additional telephony services into regional Australia.
The company sells wholesale services including number porting in the cloud, 1300/1800 number services, IP transit and business data services, as well as currently covers 19 of Telstra’s (News - Alert) call collection areas. After the announcement about this investment, the company will serve all 66 areas.
“Symbio’s engineering team expects to connect directly to all 66 CCAs by the end of 2012, and will be rolling out new wholesale product features over the following six months,” MyNetFone CEO, Rene Sugo, said in a statement.
Under this expansion plan, Symbio will offer service in remote areas of Australia, including new NBN areas as they are turned on, the company elaborated. Symbio wholesale customers can switch their business and residential end users to NBN while still keeping their existing phone number. The pre-selection and over-ride services offered by the wholesale network will benefit service providers by allowing them to leverage Symbio’s lower call termination charges even for calls originating from a fixed line.
Additionally, all numbers from the 66 CCAs can be made available to the industry at wholesale level as Symbio will be able to directly provide and host geographic numbers nationally.
Further, the investment will allow Symbio’s wholesale customers to incentivize their business and residential end-users to switch to NBN plans while keeping their established phone number.
In other company news, TMCnet recently reported on the company’s operations center in Sydney, where six ENTICE E-SC platforms aggregate incoming VoIP traffic to form the company’s core voice network. Each ENTICE platform supports a different aspect of the company’s operation – for example, wholesale or managed services. The Sydney center connects to numerous points of presence and collocation centers throughout Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.
