Home Industry Telecoms & NBN Vocus launches NBN Connect for partners

Heavyweight telecommunications provider Vocus Communications has launched a new product adapted from the M2 product suite, which it says marks a milestone in the integration of the two companies.

With the launch,Vocus (ASX:VOC) will now be offering its reseller partners and wholesale customers Vocus NBN Connect which the company says will allow resellers and wholesalers to offer new and improved network solutions to their customers using the fast-expanding NBN footprint, but “without absorbing the large cost of connecting to a Point of Interconnect (POI)”.

The new product offers a Layer 2 service, Vocus Network Connect or a Layer 3 service, Vocus Reseller Connect.

Vocus says Network Connect offers Layer 2 aggregation of NBN’s TC-4 and TC-1 Traffic Classes which are used to deliver Internet and Telephony services respectively. and allowing its customers to create customised plans using their network infrastructure.

Reseller Connect offers Layer 3 Wholesale Data and Voice services targeted towards Retail Service Providers.

And, Vocus says the product offers a Members Portal which provides B2B ordering access, reducing the requirement of manual operational intervention, voice applications and Internet, connection to the Vocus Auto Configuration server, reporting and statistics and NBN Certified CPE.

The new product is available to all Vocus reseller partners and wholesale customers from today (Tuesday).  For further information visit the Vocus website.
