Well here it is!
I Was just flicking over this article http://www.businessreviewaustralia.com/technology/software/is-your-company-taking-advantage-of-teleconferencing by Helen Legg and Abigail Phillips of the Australian Business Review which covers some of the benefits to business of Video Conferencing.
It doesn't cover one of the critical requirements to deliver quality Video Conferencing. Standard ADSL connection just don't have sufficient upload capacity to deliver quality sound and vision. A SHDSL Broadband connection is going to be required for most business particularly those with multiple sites. Of course once installed SHDSL can be shared between a range of other applications such as Web, Email, Office 365, Google mail, Hosted Voice Phone Systems all of which can deliver massive cost savings and productivity boosts.
There are many options when it comes to a SHDSL Broadband connection. Dedicated or Non Dedicated, Delivered over Copper or Fibre, Connection charges, Data Allowances and availability at your site (not every exchange is enabled). Some Telstra Retail options can be in excess of $7000 a month and then there are alternate options which can deliver fantastic quality for as low as $359 a month.
Our 20/20Mbps Dedicated SHDSL offer expires at the end of the month.
A link below below through to the Ookla Speed test summary pages which shows the average speed tests of each country
This site is used to record upload and download speeds by users over all internet connections so when considering a standard ADSL 2 connection, the result are slightly skewed upward taking into account Fibre and other high speed connections which most Australian Households don't have access to.
So hows Australia's Internet services rate on a world scale? Australia is ranked 48th with an average download speed of 14.41Mbps recorded.
That puts us ahead of Kazakhstan in 53rd Place and only slightly ahead of Papua New Guinea in 49Th spot with an average speed of 14.13Mpbs.
The common argument used is that due to Australia's geographical size and a population of only 23 Million, other countries have a major advantage over us.
Sure highly populated and tightly packed Asian Countries like Singapore, Sth Korea and Hong Kong can be considered to have a definite advantage.
Not sure if this is absolutely true though when it comes to larger countries. Canada with a similar population and a country that is basically snowed under for 6+ months of the year they come in at 39th place with 18.99 Mbps. While Russia has a significantly larger population, their Land mass is about 2.5 times Australia and despite permafrost and half the country being under snow for 6 months of the year, they come in at position 33 with 20.25Mbps.
Despite being a wealthy 1st world country with an economy that has thrived over the last 15 years on the back of the China Boom, it appears the incumbent carrier Telstra has really dropped the ball when it came to Internet Infrastructure.
Despite our apparent wealth, Australia ranks behind economic power houses, Moldova, Romania, Malta, Lithuania, Bulgaria and is barely ahead of place like Namibia.
So whats our governments response to all of this. Give Telstra 11 Billion dollars for access to the copper infrastructure that is reported as requiring billions in upkeep. Just saying.
What else can we say? Its all in the heading. Free extension level billing now available on Optus Multi Line Services.
Ideal if you need to break down your bill into cost centres, departments or re bill sub let offices or shared offices.
Its a pretty common question we get asked. There is no one answer and just about every phone system is unique. They are not like fridges and just stacked up on the shelves waiting for someone to come and pick one out. All Phone Systems are customized to the customers specification.
The Phone System Spec covers things like the hardware required, the number of handsets, the number and type of phone lines and the features the customer wants configured on the system. Here's a Phone System Scope sheet that we use to determine customers initial requirements.
Its fairly simple. Complete your requirements, click submit and your Phone System Quote is delivered within 6-48hrs.
The main items that will effect the costs of a Phone System are A. the Number & Type of handsets required. B. The supporting infrastructure such as cards and Switches used to route the calls within the customers premises. C The Manufacturer Licenses. All Manufacturers have software licenses that are used to drive the system.
In short yes. Some brands will be ideally suited to a particular specification and number of handset. What might be the cheapest option with 4 handsets, might be the most expensive brand with 12 handsets so its best to get several quotes.
Typically yes, Hosted PBX Systems are cheaper because they don't have hefty manufacturer license charges up front. Hosted PBX Systems are also typically cheaper to operate as they are not reliant on PSTN or ISDN Phone lines which come at a premium price.
This is where Hosted PBX or NBN Phone Systems have a serious edge. Though Hosted PBX Systems can be used now over ADSL or SHDSL internet connections, they are ideally suited to High Speed Internet and the change over when the NBN is delivered will be seamless for Hosted PBX Customers. Customers on traditional Systems will require a technician to come to the site to either make changes to the system configuration, supply extra equipment or replace the system altogether.

If you have ever considered switching from an iPhone to and Android device it probably all seemed way to hard. Well Google Supremo Eric Schmidt tells us how in just a few easy steps.
a) Turn your phone on and connect to wi-fi and login to your Gmail account when prompted
b) Download the Google Play Store and all the applications you used on your iPhone (Instagram, Facebook etc) if available
c) Make sure the phone is running its latest software (to do this go to apps>settings>about phone)
a) Turn the Apple device on, make sure your Gmail is logged in and upgrade the iOS software to the latest version (typically iOS 7+). Do this by plugging your phone into iTunes and clicking update software
b) Check you are using iCloud to back up contacts (go to settings>iCloud>contacts switched on). If not, sign up for it (it's free, anyway)
c) Sync your Gmail contacts (go to settings>email>Gmail account>turn contacts tab on)
Turn off iMessage (go to settings> messages>turn iMessage tab off)
d) Sync your iPhone to iTunes to ensure backup of your photos and music
a) Go to apple.com/icloud and login with your Apple ID and click on contacts.
In the lower-left corner, click on the wheel, and "select all" the contacts and "export" the vCard into a vCard file (in Downloads).
b) In a browser, go to gmail.com, click on the Mail button and select "Contacts". You should see a list of your Gmail contacts. Import the vCard file into Gmail/contacts using the "Import contacts" command and it should have manually added your contacts. Delete any duplicates or use the "More / Find & merge duplicates" function.
a) On your Mac, connect to your music to Google by downloading Google Music Manager onto the Mac, and run it. Music Manager will upload your iTunes music.
At this stage you should have all your Gmail, apps, contacts and music in your new Android phone. So, take out the SIM of the iPhone and insert it into the Android handset (you might need an adapter for those with nano-SIMS), restart and off you go!
This article in the Age Newspaper Telstra Leaving Clients on hold by Lucy Battersby and Marc Moncrief
With the NBN roll out underway, many business's are not aware that they will need to make changes to their Phone Systems and in a lot of cases, the Phone System will need to be replaced mainly with Hosted PBX systems. Telstras are calling their new System DOT ( Digital Office technology).
We have been reviewing the Telstra DOT (Digital Office Technology) offers online recently and comparing with the Telaustralia Hosted PBX offers.
When we compare a fairly typical small business customer with 4 handsets and doing around 3-500 local and National calls a month and around 400 Calls to mobile a month some of results are massive.
So we did a table top assessment comparing the Telstra 24mth plans without No contract Hosted PBX plans. We compared a business with 4 X Cisco SPA 504G handsets, 250 local calls, 150 national calls of 2mins each and 300 2 minute calls to mobiles per month. We have added in a Fax Line and Line Hunt for this business.
We compared the above business profile using each of the Telstra S, M, L and XL core plans compared to the Telaustralia No Contract Hosted PBX plan. We came up with the following results....
Telstra DOT Small Core Plan + 3 X Medium add on plans Total would be $562 with 50Gb Data. Telaustralia Hosted PBX would be $384 per month or a saving of $178 per mth or $4272 over the life of the contract.
Telstra DOT Medium Core Plan + 3 X Medium add on plans Total would be $570 with 100Gb Data. Telaustralia Hosted PBX would be $394 per month or a saving of $176 per mth or $4224 over the life of the contract.
Telstra DOT Large Core Plan + 3 X Large add on plans Total would be $575 with 250Gb Data. Telaustralia Hosted PBX would be $404 per month or a saving of $171per mth or $4104 over the life of the contract
Telstra DOT XL Core Plans + 3 X XL add on plans Total would be $550 with 1000Gb Data. Telaustralia Hosted PBX would be $414 per month or a saving of $136 per mth or $3264 over the life of the contract.
Even when we double the number of calls to mobiles we are saving over $300 on the DOT Small and Medium plans, $200 per mth on the DOT Large Plan and break even on the XL plan.
When we change the average Call to Mobile from a 2 minute average to a 1 minute average, the minimum saving is $136 per mth.
The Telstra DOT Digital Office Technology plans are a subscription based service where there is less weighting on the actual number of calls the customer makes and more emphasis on the line rental being paid. Unless the customer is an extremely heavy user these plans will be adding unnecessary cost to your monthly communications bill.
In addition Telstra's plans are all a minimum of 24mth contract. One major difference however is that the Telstra handset charges are included in the monthly rental... so for as long as you have the equipment, Telstra charges a a monthly access fee for the life of the arrangement. So a $250 handset will be costing your business $10 a month for as long as you have the equipment and with a life span over around 10 years ...thats $1200 for each handset. Telaustralia charges an up front for the purchase of the equipment (a Cisco SPA 504g handset is $250 inc, delivered and ready to use) and we also have finance options so it doesn't take long to be well in front of the Telstra offer.
