Symbio invests $3m to expand to all Telstra CCAs

Service providers to benefit from pre-selection and over-rise services, as well as wholesale reach

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) wholesale and managed services provider, Symbio Networks (a MyNetFone subsidiary), is investing $3 million over three years to connect directly into an additional 47 Telstra Call Connection Areas (CCA), including regional Australia.

This will take its existing network from 19 to 66.

By directly connection to additional CCAs, Symbio will be able to bring wholesale services, such as number porting in the Cloud, including to new National Broadband Network (NBN) areas as they come onboard, and more competitive 1300/1800 number services to growing regional centres, such as Dubbo, Townsville, and Alive Springs.

“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.

According to Symbio, service providers will benefit from the investment as the wholesale network will offer pre-selection and over-ride services that 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.

The investment will also allow Symbio’s wholesale customers to incentivise their business and residential end-users to switch to NBN plans while keeping their established phone number.
