TelstraClear has deployed Genband technology to help it transform to an IP-based voice network. TelstraClear says the deployment is part of a network transformation project to provide IP unified communications services for residential customers, IP interconnect between national and international carriers, and IP-based PBXs for enterprise and government.
“By completing this groundbreaking national IP voice services modernisation programme, TelstraClear becomes the first full service provider in New Zealand to create an IP-based network capable of offering customers a full nationwide footprint for voice products over all network types, including the new government-funded ultra-fast broadband,” says Brenda Stonestreet, head of operations at TelstraClear, in a media statement.
“Since New Zealand cities are susceptible to being isolated during natural disasters due to its population spread over two elongated islands, our national, carrier-grade IP voice network will be highly available during ordinary to extraordinary disruption,” she says.
The Genband equipment will allow TelstraClear to expand its IP interconnect capabilities with other service providers both nationality and internationally at multiple centres, enabling the latest in IP voice services between carriers.
TelstraClear ranks number 60 in this year’s MIS100, the annual report on the top ICT using organisations in New Zealand.
