Telco blitz launched on Australia's wholesale market

ISDN services over Ethernet available

A new national converged single telco network with switches in Australia, the United Kingdom and North America was unveiled yesterday by Blitz Telecom.

BlitzOnNet is an aggregated network platform built and designed in Australia.

It encompasses VoIP technologies, traditional voice technologies, geographic number ranges and the transition and connectivity of data across multiple technologies such as ADSL, ADSL2+, Ethernet, Frame Relay, ATM and satellite.

The Australian, UK and North American switches share the same common backend and user management SQL nodes with real time global clustering and load balancing.

On a commercial basis, BlitzOnNet can be used to originate and terminate call traffic of various forms, and to carry both pre-select and override call traffic.

The telco's executive director Umut Omer said BlitzOnNet represents a huge bonus for its 40,000-plus customer base.

He said business customers will enjoy a lower cost of delivery and a range of feature rich telco grade services.

Omer said the TDMoE (Time Division Multiplexing over Ethernet) service is the delivery of ISDN services using Ethernet, rather than traditional and more expensive methods.

"It is a carrier grade service and a low cost delivery method for high quality business voice traffic, taking away the reliance on incumbent carriers," he said.

In addition to voice services, BlitzOnNet enables national data aggregation of ADSL and ADSL2+ ports available on all three of the major carriers (excluding Telstra's ADSL2+ ports), wireless point to point links, Blitz's own fibre optic ring in CBD Adelaide, and layer3 IP feeds supplied with carrier diversity from two of the three major external providers.

All network components have dual redundancy, dual power, hot swap remote access and live network heartbeats.

"It is versatile and clustered with self healing replication across the global network to ensure minimal to no disruption to services during an unplanned network outage," Omer said.

"BlitzOnNet will enhance its upcoming entry to the wholesale market by providing wholesale clients with 'virtual carrier' functions that allow smaller telco operators the ability to sell a broad range of services."

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
