TALKNET AFRICA BRINGS VOIP SOLUTIONS TO AFRICA
TalkNet Holdings is launching TalkNet Africa, a VoIP solutions and services provider aimed at the business and residential markets.
The company, which operates and owns an internationally distributed network in partnership with TalkNet Australia, will be offering call cost reduction and network-based services from a management team which has substantial experience in the telecommunications industry.
What is intended to differentiate TalkNet Africa is that while competitors dramatically increase costs for organisations, requiring extensive changes to dialling plans or replacing telephone instruments, TalkNet Africa aims to simplify the implementation of VoIP by placing a gateway on the network side of the telephone exchange.
It is designed to replicate the 'look and feel' of PSTN from a customer's existing workflow patterns through the use of existing handsets. This also means that there is no need for user education or costly replacement of existing infrastructures, the company says.
