Demand for VoIP Technology Generates ICT Partnership
Increased vendor confidence and constant cost and productivity reviews of telephony methods have initiated an increase in demand for VoIP technology in Australia during the past year. As part of the alliance, Freshtel’s IP telephony soft phone, the Firefly, will be marketed to WCG’s ISP clients. The Firefly allows computer users to make free telephone calls through their Internet connection or to fixed landlines and mobiles at competitive call rates. WCG is an aggregator of communications services in the Australian market, and the agreement has opened up Freshtel’s VOB platform to its ISP network, with access to more than 500,000 subscribers. The agreement also allows Freshtel to link its VOB hardware and software to WCG’s voice-billing solutions to gain rapid market entry.
