SIP launch on iBoss aggregation platform Wednesday 29 April 2015 @ 10:00

Symbio's industry-proven iBoss aggregation platform is now further enhanced by the addition of fully integrated SIP services. The scope of the offering includes the addition of SIP trunks and SIP endpoints – a first within the Australian wholesale telco market.

This opens up a new segment of the market for providers to target those end-users who are embracing IP telephony. Recent research from the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) reveals that 29% of small and medium-sized businesses already use IP phone services.

CSPs can now extend to their customers the cost savings and functionality of SIP trunking, while also retaining the ability to sell traditional landlines, DSL, NBN and mobile services all through the one iBoss aggregation platform.

By offering the widest scope of aggregated services, the iBoss platform is enabling innovation in the post NBN environment, by breaking down the barriers to entry for smaller businesses and start-ups. It is also powering digital diversification - Symbio is seeing big brands from other industries looking to enter the telco market. 

The iBoss platform is especially designed for new telco market entrants or those wanting to expand their service offering. With a straightforward signup process, it provides the essential link between wholesale telecoms operators and suppliers, including Telstra, Optus, AAPT and now Symbio. The modular approach means that customers can start with basic aggregation, and expand their suite of solutions when they need to, by adding BSS/OSS capabilities, provisioning, CRM, and other enablement features. 

Symbio acquired the iBoss platform in July 2014 and has since been further developing the service to make it a provider of choice, with the most feature-rich aggregation and BSS/OSS services in the Australian market.

LNP Code Changes Wednesday 09 July 2014 @ 12:39

As you may be aware, the LNP Code in Australia underwent several changes as of the 1st of March 2014. These changes make the porting process simpler for end users by putting the burden and complexity of porting onto carriers and CSPs. A great win for consumers!

As a member of the Communications Alliance, Symbio was invited to participate in the LNP Code Review and help shape the future of number porting in Australia. We see this as the first step in simplifying the process and Symbio will continue to be an advocate for end users and new entrants to the market.
