INTERNET FOR CLOUD COMPUTING

WHAT INTERNET DO YOU NEED TO MOVE TO CLOUD SOFTWARE?

There is 1 Question you must ask any Cloud Software provider. Read on to find out what that question is!

We are seeing a lot of inquiries along these lines....

Caller: Hi We run a Real Estate Agency and we have moved to Cloud Based Software and our whole office internet is running so slowly.

Telaustralia: I think we can help you. How many people do you have in the office?

Caller: 7 Staff.

Telaustralia: Are you currently running ADSL 2 Internet?

Caller: Yes and we are getting about 10mb download speed and about 700kbps upload speed.

Telaustralia: We think the problem is that because ADSL 2 Internet has a maximum upload speed of 1Mb, this is causing the issue. You don't have sufficient upload bandwidth available to you. You probably need SHDSL internet.

Caller: How much does that cost?

Telaustralia: $300-$500 a month is fairly typical for a SHDSL internet connection.

Caller: We cant afford that much! We have just outlaid many thousands of dollars for this new software.

If this scenario sounds familiar its because the massive uptake of Cloud and Web based software platforms is strangling the typical ADSL 2 Internet upload capacity.

So before making any decision to move to Cloud based Software ask this 1 critical question. What Internet connection do you recommend to run your software?

If the answer is SHDSL budget another $300 a month in data costs over and above your ADSL connection and include this in any business case.

The alternative is that your business could end up paying a lot of money for software that doesn't perform at its optimum, especially if there is no SHDSL option available to you.

Telstra DOT - What we dont like.

TELSTRA DOT PHONE SYSTEMS - TOP 5 THINGS WE DON'T LIKE!

Telstra DOT Phone Systems are expensive. We know that Telstra place them selves as the premium brand and premium network. But when the technology they are selling is widely available, why go with the more expensive option when there are more effective alternatives?

1. 30c flag falls on calls to mobiles. 

30c Flag Fall on calls to mobiles ....really? Unless you take an unlimited plan, which for most business is not cost effective, (See our previous post Is Telstra DOT good Value? ) there is no justification for the charge at all, other than to drive customers off PSTN and onto DOT. Its not like they have to pay and maintain several billion dollars worth of copper network for the DOT service.

2. 30c per minute billed per minute block.

While we are on calls to mobiles, how can they justify 30c per minute billed per minute block? On Hosted PBX? You've got to be joking. Most other providers are charging sub 20c per minute or/and billing in per second increments.

Here's a brief comparison with our Hosted PBX and Telstra M or L DOT plan. Lets say you call a mobile and the call go's to Voice Mail. The call lasts for 10 seconds while you listen to and leave a message. Telaustralia Charge 4c. Telstra Charge 60c

3. Monthly handset charges.

The Cisco Handsets that Telstra sell are very good quality. They have chosen to copy Telaustralia and use the Cisco 504g and the Cisco 525G. The difference is with Telstra DOT Phone System handsets, you pay for the handsets each month and then every month as long as you are connected. So $10 a month handset payment x 5 years could mean you end up paying $600 per handset for a Cisco Phone System that we sell outright for $250.

4. The contract.

You cant take a Telstra DOT System without a  24mths minimum contract term. Telaustralia do Hosted PBX Systems on no contract. Feel free to leave for any reason, you have to move, you need less handsets, your not happy for any reason, we wont lock you in with your Hosted PBX System or NBN Phone System.

5. The expensive add ons.

Fax Line an extra $20 per month, Eftpos Line an extra $20 per month, Hunt Group $10 per month and so on. In most cases the Telstra DOT Core plans have an ADSL service delivered over a PSTN line. The Phone line that can be used for Fax or Eftpos is already there and your paying for it. So why charge you if you want to use it for Fax or Eftpos? $10 for Hunt group? That's more expensive than on PSTN. Basic Rotary Hunt Groups with Telaustralia are Free!

NBN PHONE SYSTEMS BRUNSWICK, CARLTON, FOOTSCRAY, SPOTSWOOD, YARRAVILLE

NBN Phone Systems Carlton, Brunswick, Footscray, Spotswood, Parkville & Yarraville

We know we can get Internet over the NBN, but what happens with our Phone, Phone System, Fax Machine, Eftpos and Alarm? As the National Broadband Network roll out gathers pace, we are finding that many customers are unaware their copper phone lines will eventually be cut off.

There is no do nothing option if you want to keep your advertised business number.

The NBN rollout is almost complete in Brunswick and gathering pace in the Carlton, Footscray, Spostwood, Mill Park and South Morang areas. Do not wait until the copper cut off to arrange your phone system changes.

So what are the main issues for Businesses wanting to transition to the NBN?

Will our Phone System Work on the NBN?

Did you know, nearly every Phone System in use today will require modification or replacement when switching to the National Broadband Network? Traditional Phone systems will need to have SIP trunks added or be replaced with NBN Phone Systems. Our NBN Phone Systems by Cisco are designed with the NBN in mind and they will work over todays Standard ADSL2 services in most cases.

NBN Carlton Brunswick, Footscray Y

Solution: Ensure you are not trapped into buying a new Phone System, that won’t meet your future needs, by visiting our web site or calling us on1300783528 to discuss a NBN Phone System. Prices start from $500 for a 2 Line - 2 Handset System with all the features that you would expect on Phone Systems costing $000s more, such as Voice Mail, Music on Hold & Line Hunt.

The copper cut off is coming up and we don’t want to lose our advertised numbers.

The Internet over the NBN is relatively straightforward. We connect NBN data services every day.  However Phone lines are a different story. We are seeing a huge bottleneck as the NBN is rolled out in each area, as Phone lines have to be ported off the Telstra copper network.

Solution: Don’t wait until the NBN is rolled out and the copper about to be cut off. We can help advise you and manage the porting of your advertised phone numbers, to a NBN Compatible solution such as SIP trunks or a Hosted Phone System.

Talk to an Australian based NBN expert at Telaustralia on 1300783528 to arrange an on site visit or phone consultation.

What about of Fax, Eftpos and Alarm services?Can you help us manage everything onto the NBN?

Yes! Telaustralia can give you straightforward and easy to follow advice and will work with your IT,  Fax, Eftpos and Alarm providers on your behalf.

Solution: Many of these services can be transitioned to the appropriate technology now before the NBN is rolled out so don’t wait. Talk to an expert now on 1300783528

What if VoIP wont work at my site?

My Business VoIP has poor call quality. What do I do?

Its not an uncommon questions. Usually we find there is one of 4 issues causing the problem.

Hosted PBX Phone Systems 

The Top 4 Business VoIP causes of call quality issues.

1. Your Internet connection is not adequate for a VoIP service.

If you are trying to run a Business Hosted PBX or SIP trunks over an ADSL connection and are running into call quality issues, you may be experiencing one of the following...

  • Your exchange is congested causing issues on a regular basis - Not a lot of good news here. Nothing you can do really except contact provider and request a port swap to a different part of the exchange but that's not guaranteed to give you a better result ad if your on Telstra network they wont do it. You could consider getting a dedicated SHDSL connection installed. Its a lot more expensive but you are guaranteed a good quality internet connection.
  • Your have your ADSL with a budget provider who pack their DSLAMS with customers, which causes congestion. See 1st point. Look for another provider.
  • You are too far from the exchange to get a good quality connection. Again not a lot can be done here. Consider remaining with ISDN or PSTN lines.

We always conduct preliminary Internet checks or speed and line quality before we consider installing our Business Grade Hosted PBX or SIP trunks.

2. You have a poorly designed hardware configuration.

Ok ...so in the quest to save a few bucks you got your VoIP handsets off Ebay, your modem is a cheap no frills version from the local Dick Smiths and you have a un-managed switch you have had sitting in the offices for years. Its admirable you tried to save but in the end you may have just waited every bit of that cash.

We only use Hosted PBX hardware that we have tested and can guarantee will work. This means we only use Cisco handsets, switches and routers and DrayTek modems with our Business Grade Hosted PBX. We know most of these devices have QOS settings and in the case of the Cisco gear, it automatically identifies Voice Traffic over Data.

3. Your Business Hosted PBX equipment was not configured by the carrier?

For this very reason we don't do BYO hardware. Why because we have no idea what its capability or spec is, how its been configured and set up. Its the lead up to the Hosted PBX or VoIP version of Vietnam...an un winnable war going on endlessly trying to find the cause of the problem when we could be supporting our regular customers. Because someone wants to BYO hardware we can spend countless hours of our support time trying to fix up someone else's problem.

4. You have the licorice all sorts of Hosted PBX.

  • Phone line with carrier A
  • ADSL or Internet with Carrier B
  • You purchases you gear in the fashion described in point 2 above...bits from all over the place.
  • Self configured Hardware
  • Hosted PBX services from carrier C

It can look good in a lolly bag but no good for your Business Communications. We get half a dozen calls a week asking us to rescue poorly configured systems and in most cases all we can do is start fresh.

What is Business Grade Hosted PBX?

That why we can call our Hosted PBX and SIP Trunks a genuine Business Grade VoIP product. We will only provide the product if we do the following...

1. We supply the ADSL or SHDSL service the connection will be run over.

2. We supply and pre configure all hardware to be used on the Hosted PBX System including Handsets, Modem, Router and Switch.
