Symbio Networks Acquires Carrier Access Code Monday 15 March 2010 @ 12:18

We are proud to announce Symbio Networks has acquired a Carrier Access Code (CAC), which will allow us to interconnect our VoIP network directly with the traditional Tier 1 Carriers in Australia. Once the CAC is deployed later this year, it will bring Symbio's VoIP network capabilities on-par with the existing Tier 1 and Tier 2 voice carriers in Australia.

One direct benefit of this project will be the capability to port local numbers (LNP) from Carriers directly onto our VoIP core network - something that the VoIP industry is struggling to achieve today, and a problem that is limiting the growth and penetration of VoIP services into the mass market. Additional benefits will include increased quality, reliability and geographic reach of services.

As part of the interconnection project we will also be expanding our current active network capacity to triple its current infrastructure volumes.  Symbio Networks is currently routing over 1 Billion VoIP minutes per annum, and expects that figure to grow significantly in the near future. We expect this growth to be fuelled by an increased take up of VoIP services into the lucrative Small Business market, as well new mobile-VoIP and wireless-VoIP applications, in addition to continued growth of international carrier services.
