What telco services and technologies do you specialise in?
The technology we specialise in includes cloud, IP voice, hosted voice, PSTN and mobile 3G and 4G. The vendors we partner with include AWS, Telstra, Optus, AAPT, Engin and M2.
When did your company first get involved in this area?
What are your telecommunications credentials?
Cisco networking certifications such as CCNA.
Who are your main carrier partners or distributors for telco technology?
We use Ingram and Dicker Data, mostly.
Heard of any cool developments in the telco space recently?
Certainly over-the-top plays in areas of cloud, security, SaaS, video and PaaS.
Can you tell us about a recent telco deployment?
Metaswitch. We are in the process of deploying a replacement platform to remove four disparate soft-switching platforms that have resulted from recent acquisitions.
What is driving customers’ telco projects?
Scale and the requirement to be as close to origin as possible. NBN is driving over-the-top plays. This is a once-in-a-generation technology change. It drives most of what we do. At the moment, also government regulation such as data retention requirements.
A tough way to earn a buck. Should have invented a fully online application that only required a few staff and made me millions!
