Inabox has secured a three-year deal to combine its white-label telco enablement capabilities with Telstra's wholesale business.
Telcoinabox, the wholesale arm of Inabox, will combine its enablement services with Telstra's fixed and mobile wholesale network, which includes network integration, service provisioning and customer billing, management network services, compliance, payments processing and customer support.
The new partnership will allow Telstra Wholesale customers to quickly launch their own mass market telecommunications services, with the two companies servicing as a one-stop-shop for all service provisioning and network functions.
Inabox will also develop an interface between Telstra's front-end system and Telcoinabox's back-end system.
"By creating this white-label, end-to-end service, we're effectively making Telstra's wholesale network available to an emerging group of customers who want to offer these services to their own customers, without the complexity and expense of building and managing their own in-house service and support centres," said Telstra Wholesale executive director of products and marketing Terry Scerri.
Inabox chief executive Damian Kay said it was a huge win for Telcoinabox, which already has an existing relationship with Telstra; Inabox was the first Australian aggregator to launch Telstra wholesale 4G services in August 2016.
"Offering a range of enablement services to allow brands and resellers to provide white-labelled telco, managed IT and cloud services is the real strength of Telcoinabox's capabilities and a key point of differentiation between us and our competition," said Kay.
"This deal is one of a number of recent opportunities the management team has been pursuing and the company expects its investment in its enablement capabilities to allow it to continue to secure additional customers and significantly drive its enablement revenues in FY18 and beyond."
