Equant confident it's the real thing

"We are the first and only operator to deliver integrated voice and data over IP," said Andrew Bond-Webster, president, Asia-Pacific, Equant Network Services.

"Others are only providing voice over IP . . . and this might be over a public internet connection (where) quality of service is not guaranteed. We use our own VPN," he said.

Launched as part of Equant's existing integrated services portfolio, the service is currently available in 50 countries including Australia. Bond-Webster said the only limitations for the service are regulatory and licensing issues.

Built around Cisco Systems technology, the service offers customers the ability to deliver voice and data applications over a single network, cutting costs and simplifying network management, Bond-Webster said.

The service can currently offer voice, data, video streaming, fax and file transfer services, and will include videoconferencing, offline applications and data conferencing in the future. Bond-Webster said the future applications will be driven by customer demand.

Customers of Equant's existing integrated voice and data over frame relay service launched in 1998 are expected to migrate to the new service.

"Over time we expect to have significantly more IP-based customers than frame relay," Bond-Webster said, adding that both multinational and SME customers would benefit from the service.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
