"The speed, scale, reliability and intelligence of the Telstra Next IP network provides the perfect foundation for high definition videoconferencing, unified communications and collaboration applications, which are currently some of the fastest growing solutions adopted by enterprise, government and small business customers"
He added: "Telstra's network strength and expertise in video will be greatly enhanced by iVision's design, deployment and advanced monitoring capabilities."
iVision managing director and owner, Graham Williams, who will continue to lead the business, said: "The combination of iVision and Telstra will create an innovative, network-based, end-to-end videoconferencing provider with customer centric capabilities unparalleled in the Australian market."
iVision claims to offer five key service areas: consultation, integration, implementation, managed services, network and conferencing hosted service and usage and adoption services.
In June last year Williams told ExchangeDaily he believed there was considerable scope to integrate videoconferencing and unified communications, claiming that the two were at that time largely separate.
"I think the market [for unified communications] is completely untapped. A lot of people have IP telephony but it is only dial-tone replacement. There is no presence or collaboration and certainly not desktop video. And while there are a lot of people with video it is not integrated into telephony or booking systems.
