Under the deal between the two companies, the new capability will combine Telstra Wholesale’s offering for fixed and mobile networks with the enablement capabilities of Inabox Group.
Telstra says the offer package will provide the full service, end-to end capabilities that will enable any company with a retail channel to develop new revenue streams by launching their own mass market telecommunications services.
The telco promotes the combined capability as providing a ‘one-stop-shop’ to customers that includes service provisioning, ISP and network functions, customer billing, customer care and technical support as well as access to Telstra Wholesale’s network.
“By creating this white label end-to-end service, we’re effectively making Telstra’s Wholesale network available to an emerging group of customers who want to offer these services to their own customers, without the complexity and expense of building and managing their own in-house service and support centres.”
Scerri said Telstra Wholesale selected Inabox following a competitive global process that identified their “proven capability” to deliver end-to-end enablement services across both fixed and mobile.
“One of the main attractions to Inabox is the fact that they have a strong track record in enablement. They have also demonstrated an innovative approach that we’re confident will help us ensure that we’re constantly adapting to meet changing customer needs.”
“This is another example of how Telstra Wholesale is adapting its business model to reflect the changes in the telecommunications industry and to deliver a world-class experience for an emerging channel in the Australian market.”
