NEC to wholesale NBN connectivity with cloud based UC services

By
NEC Australia has signed NBN Co's Wholesale Broadband Agreement and says that, in addition to providing basic NBN connectivity to retail service providers, it plans to offer them wholesale cloud-based IP telephony and contact centre services.

Through its Nextep business, which provides wholesale services on NEC's DSLAM network, NEC says it will provide wholesale aggregation services on the NBN offering wholesale internet, data and voice services to new and existing customers and will provide small to medium sized retail service providers, system integrators and cloud providers with a turnkey solution required to tap into the NBN.

"Such solutions will provide an alternative for small ISP, telco or IT businesses to purchase such wholesale services who may otherwise be edged out of the market by the major providers," NEC said.

"Combining NEC Australia's cloud telephony and cloud contact centre solutions with NBN connectivity means that NEC Nextep can provide wholesalers with an end to end solution for voice and data service."

NEC, globally, announced earlier this month the third generation of its cloud-based unified communications and collaboration (UC&C) software, Univerge 3C, and a few days later announced plans to offer, again globally, a set of UC&C services on a software-as-a-service basis, based on Univerge 3C, starting in the US.

NEC confirmed to iTWire at the time that these service would be offered in Australia in mid 2012. The move is in line with the company's aim, announced in February to become "Australia's leading communications systems integrator by 2014."

When it announced its Univerge 3C-based cloud plans, NEC said: "NEC's unified communications as a service (UCaaS) is an expanded SaaS that includes a comprehensive suite of voice, data and video services featuring a simple, Web-based end-user client that is deployable across virtually any device, including PCs, smartphones and tablets."
