<p>The new relationship sees NETGEAR’s latest residential VoIP product – a wired two-port telephone router – bundled with engin’s comprehensive communications service. The partnership further strengthens NETGEAR’s presence in the VoIP space and provides its customers with increased range of VoIP service alternatives.</p>
<p>“engin has been a true pioneer in the Australian VoIP space, investing heavily in building local understanding and support of this technology,” said Ryan Parker, Director of Partnerships and Services, NETGEAR. “ It has broad national scope and is particularly strong in the retail channel, enhancing our capabilities to reach customers and further complementing NETGEAR’s initiatives in this market.”</p>
<p>Using the NETGEAR/engin product, any broadband user will be able to make and receive VoIP calls using their existing telephone service, benefiting from lower call costs and service fees. Users will be able to call anywhere in Australia, at anytime, for a flat rate of 10 cents, while calls to international destinations will be charged at 3.5 cents per minute. Customers will also be able to take advantage of a range of additional call features not available on traditional phones, such as call waiting, caller ID and three-way conference calls.</p>
<p>The bundled offering will be sold through Harvey Norman stores across Australia and by 1,000-plus engin retail outlets.</p>
<p>“NETGEAR’s hardware works well with engin’s product range. There is a strong fit between our two companies, as engin specialises in VoIP and NETGEAR in wired and wireless networking solutions that support high-quality VoIP,” said Ilkka Tales, CEO, engin.</p>
