Anittel is set to launch an end-to-end suite of telecommunications services into its IT offering as part of the Inabox Group acquistion action plan.
As of tomorrow, more than 1000 Anittel customers will have access to a complete range of in-house Cloud and telephony offerings.
These include traditional voice, hosted voice and SIP, business grade internet services, Cloud services, data, mobile and inbound services.
Inabox managing director and chief executive, Damian Kay, said the company holds a leading position in the market as a one-stop-ICT-and-Cloud-shop, and as of tomorrow it will offer a full suite of Cloud and telecommunications services to Anittel customers, in addition to its existing IT offering.
“By acquiring Anittel, we set out to become a national, end-to-end, IT, telco and Cloud provider, and we believe we have achieved just that.
“The teams have worked tirelessly to deliver a comprehensive suite of our own branded Cloud and ‘as-a-Service’ products, all within 3 months.”
The company branded range includes Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS). Other services include dedicated servers and datacentre co-location.
Inabox Group acquired Anittel on January 1.
Kay said the market was moving more rapidly away from in-house, hosted and managed IT infrastructure and migrating to the Cloud.
“The business is very well placed to take advantage of this move from 'tin-to-Cloud’.
“As an end-to-end provider of IT, telco and Cloud services we can provide a seamless transition of applications and infrastructure across a range of high availability cloud solutions within our product suite.”
He said the company’s ability to provide a full complement of hardware, software and connectivity services under a one-stop model it can offer quicker service resolution.
“If there is a problem, we can troubleshoot immediately as we have full visibility of the customer from the CPE (customer premise equipment) to the network," he said.
"As we like to say, this gives the customer ‘one throat to choke’.”
Kay said, from the customer’s point of view, it was a flexible commercial model.
“Rather than spending large capex for a refresh cycle every 3-5 years, we can smooth this out over a month-to-month recurring opex model. This way the technology always stays current and is easier to budget for,” he said.
"The ‘tin-to-Cloud’ technology move is a step in the right direction for the Inabox business’ bottom line as the recurring margin model ensures a greater lock in cycle with customers."
In conjunction with this launch, 17 Anittel staff will be moving into the Inabox Group Hunter St, Sydney offices on 10 April. They include cloud technicians, field engineers, administration and finance.
