Corporate telephone users stand to reap significant cost savings on international call charges if a new Internet telephony service from Justice Technology takes off in Australia.
Planned for worldwide launch this month, Justice's Internet telephony service will be offered to large Australian companies to reduce international call costs, and to ISPs seeking to launch alternative Internet telephone services.
According to officials, the service is made available using the voice over IP (V/IP) phone/fax IP Gateway from Micom Communications -- a business unit of Nortel -- and provided locally through network systems integrator ComTech Communications.
Doug Ferguson, Asia-Pacific general manager of Micom, said users will now be able to access Justice Technology's V/IP Internet Gateway for high-quality international calls.
"Justice bulk-buys access time from major carriers in the US such as AT&T and WorldCom," Ferguson said. "You will only pay the $US rate from Justice to anywhere in the world."
As an example, he said Australian users can call Tokyo via justice for approximately $0.75 per minute instead of the standard $1.71 per minute.
Ferguson said the Micom alternative offers better quality of service and is not limited by the location of ISPs to carry the voice signal.
The Micom V/IP Gateway costs $3200 RRP and is available from ComTech Communications.
