Perth's Amcom wins major Cisco HCS deal
The 13,000-user telephony and unified communication (UC) services contract is the biggest Cisco HCS rollout announced in Australia to date. It is also Amcom’s largest single UC contract ever.
Amcom uses Cisco HCS to power its Amcom Cloud Collaboration solution (ACC), a pay-per-use consumption-based unified communications service.
The company will deploy Amcom ACC across eight University of Melbourne campuses in metropolitan and rural Victoria, providing services including voice and video telephony, voicemail, instant messaging, telepresence and mobility services.
The service will allow users to securely route calls to other universities and institutions worldwide using AARNet’s unified communications exchange. Amcom announced a partnership with AARNet (Australia’s Academic and Research Network) in May.
“Large-scale contracts such as this validates the up-front investment Amcom has made in our ACC offering, leveraging off of our partnership with AARNet,” Amcom CEO Clive Stein commented.
He said he expects that over time, Amcom’s partnership with AARNet will yield more educational sector contracts.
