More Australia IP Communications Stories
September 26, 2012
Due to the rapidly changing political scenarios across the globe, a huge number of people are seeking refuge in nearby nations in pursuit for a better life. These helpless and troubled people need to stay connected with their friends and families in the hours of turmoil, and offering Internet connectivity to them comes as a great help.
Pactel International is a satellite communications provider from Australia that offers connectivity services to customers in the Asia-Pacific region such as Australia, Indonesia, PNG and Pacific Islands, and has announced that CenpacNet Inc., a Telecommunications provider from Nauru, has selected it for founding a communication infrastructure for the refugees in Australian immigration facilities.
After being initiated, the company successfully designed and commissioned a network within one week. With the help of this network, the first group of asylum seekers who arrived at the island earlier this month has now been using the Internet and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services.
The company offers its services and solutions for commercial, corporate and carrier-grade networks that support services such as Internet, Private WAN, Telephony and Voice and Mobile GSM. It primarily works toward allowing remotely-based businesses to remain connected in a constant, reliable and efficient manner.
It also offers communication infrastructures for a diverse range of end-users.
Built upon the IS-18 C-Band Platform, the new network can be expanded to fulfill the needs of around 1500 people, predicted to be detained in near future. The Quality of Service (QoS) technology deployed by Pactel International plays a vital role in enhanced allocation of bandwidth to provide end users with a better call experience.
“Access to communication facilities that enable refugees to communicate with their families and request for assistance has become a basic need in current circumstances,” commented Andrew Taylor, chief executive officer at Pactel International. “We will ensure our service satisfies this need.”
“We chose Pactel International due to their extensive experience and high accountability in the Pacific Region,” said Rudolph Garoa, manager at CenpacNet, Inc. “They have met all our expectations in providing a fast and reliable service with responsive 24/7 network support.”
In March 2012, Pactel International obtained a PortaSIP platform as a way to address its growing need for enhanced voice services in the corporate space and resource sector. The new platform enables call centers and remote workers to access office-like telephony features and functionality.
