Comms bodies merge under ACIF banner

The Australian Communications Industry Forum (ACIF) and the Australian Voice over IP Association have agreed to merge.

The combined entity will be known as the Australian Communications Industry Forum.

Forum CEO Anne Hurley said the expanded organization would provide a stronger voice for the industry, and lead it into the next generation of converging networks (NGN), technologies and services.

"By extending our membership further into the VoIP sector, ACIF will more closely reflect the diversity that characterizes our industry in the next-gen world," she said.

"By bolstering its VoIP expertise, ACIF will be ideally placed to provide balanced and comprehensive input to policy development and debate."

Mike Carew, founder of AVOIPA, agreed that the industry needed more unified representation rather than a multiplicity of specialist organizations.

"ACIF has demonstrated that it has the resources and the expertise to achieve the sorts of cooperative outcomes our industry will need as VoIP and NGN services challenge the traditional technologies," Carew said. "We welcome the opportunity to make a significant contribution through ACIF."

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
