Aussie gains online efficiencies

ONLINE directory group Aussie Online Limited now has one of Australia’s fastest virtual private networks, allowing for low-cost Internet telephony.

Aussie, which recently opened a Melbourne office as part of its eastern States expansion, is now able to channel calls from its telemarketing division in Perth to Melbourne via the Internet, delivering significant cost savings as STD calls are effectively the cost of a local call.

Its VPN operates on a Windows 2000 platform and is based on high-speed fibre optic links, provided locally by Perth company Amcom Telecommunications Limited and in Melbourne through UECOMM.

Aussie IT manager Ross Woodhams said the VPN carried four channels of high-quality voice (VoIP) as well as significant data transmission capability.

“Because we are using the latest technology provided by leaders in the field, we are able to reduce delays in the communication system to a minimum – around 80 milliseconds from Perth to Melbourne and back,” Mr Woodhams said.

Mr Woodhams said the company was also employing a solution provided by Melbourne-based niche technology company Tennyson Holdings – the Small Office Xchange product.

“SOX allows powerful integration of individual phone extensions with individual PCs, making it easier to use those telephone functions that people never seem to utilise with their current PABXs,” he said.

Aussie also recently acquired a suite of real estate and rental portals developed by Perth-based Commerce Australia Pty Ltd.
