Symbio Networks Shortlisted for 2 ACOMMS Awards Tuesday 10 July 2012 @ 11:16

We are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted as finalists in the following categories in the 2012 ACOMMS Awards, the leading awards for Australia's telecommunications industry.

Partnership for Growth 

In recognition of Symbio's partnership with Australian Private Networks (APN), Australia's largest satellite internet provider, to provide remote communities with a customised VoIP solution that ensures high quality for calls via satellite connection. Symbio's VoIP expertise overcomes the challenges typically associated with the high latency of satellite transmission, allowing APN to develop free-standing, solar-powered phone booths in isolated communities that previously had few options for communicating with the outside world. The VoIP phone booths are part of the Department of Communications, Broadband and Digital Economy's Indigenous Communications Program, providing up to 300 indigenous communities across Australia with free standard calls, while mobile, international and premium numbers can be dialled using a phone card. 

Innovation / Small to Medium Sized Enterprises

In recognition of Symbio's locally developed Local Number Porting (LNP) innovation. Traditionally an overly complex and time-consuming process for both consumers and businesses wanting to switch carriers, the number porting process has been simplified and improved with Symbio's LNP technology, the most advanced available in Australia to-date. Symbio's LNP effectively unlocks the number porting market for smaller service providers with more than 65,000 numbers already ported on to the network since its launch in 2010.

Symbio's LNP feature is the first in Australia to allow phone numbers to move into the cloud and will facilitiate the uptake of NBN services as they are being rolled out nationally, allowing customers to keep their phone numbers, even when they forgo their landline connection and completely switch to VoIP.
