Communications provider MNF Enterprise has been selected as a preferred supplier to the Digital Transformation Agency’s (DTA) telecommunications marketplace.

MNF Enterprise - part of the MNF Group - was selected, along with 25 other carriers, to supply telecommunications services to Federal, State and Local Government agencies.

Under the contract MNF Enterprise will specifically supply fixed line voice carriage services, unified communications services, managed voice services and contact centre systems to the ICT Procurement Portal, which is a DTA sourcing platform which enables buyers and sellers to transact within a marketplace.

The new whole-of-government marketplace will replace and expand on the services available under the existing Mobile and Telecommunications Services panels and has been set up to make sourcing telecommunications products and services simpler, clearer and faster for both buyers and sellers.

“MNF Enterprise is a prominent player in the government space. We have been working with the Tasmanian government since 2012, providing Voice Carriage Services; appointed to the Voice Services Panel for the Victorian Government in 2017, and have been a preferred supplier to the New South Wales government for fixed, inbound telephony and mobile services since 2018,” Greg Round, General Manager of MNF Enterprise said.

“This appointment to the Telecommunications Marketplace panel extends MNF Enterprise’s scope within the government sector and cements our reputation for providing quality services and real choice for government for their telecommunication needs.”

Lucy Poole, General Manager of the Sourcing and Enabling Division at the DTA said, "The new Telecommunications Marketplace delivers a service that helps agencies to continue their digital transformation. It will be launched through the ICT Procurement Portal with new functions to make buying and selling even easier, and will be the go-to platform for selling telecommunications to government.”

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
