Announces strategic collaboration with Optus Wholesale for Optus Cloud-UCX

Leading wholesale telecommunications company, Partner Wholesale Networks (PWN), today announced it is the first Optus Wholesale partner to sign up for Optus Cloud-UCX.

Director Graeme Kelly said that PWN was excited by the opportunity presented by this product and was looking forward to being the first provider in the market to bring the BroadCloud solution to dealers and agents nationally.

“We’re witnessing the migration of small and medium businesses to the NBN and this is acting as a demand driver for cloud-based unified communications, which is impacting our channel partners,” he said.

With the Australian UC market forecast to pass $1 billion by 2021 it is becoming increasingly important for service providers to support their customers as they move to the cloud.

“Many SMBs are still stuck in a legacy voice comms and infrastructure world, so this solution presents a huge opportunity for our agents and dealer network. They need a quality solution they can rely on with full backing and local support,” said Graeme.

“This product will allow our channel partners to create and white-label their own UC services and provides a full service offering for end users including instant messaging, presence, voice and video calling, conferencing and desktop and file sharing.”

The solution is supported by the PWN customer service platform including a whole of business product suite delivered on a single bill, in addition to collections, customer service, provisioning and pre-sales support.

John Castro, Vice President Sales and Marketing, Optus Wholesale said, “We developed this product to provide our service provider partners with the tools needed to remain competitive. We’re pleased Partner Wholesale Networks is on board because we know the demand for cloud services is continuing to grow in the market, and this product offering directly addresses this.”

Graeme said, “We are looking forward to attending the BroadSoft Connections Forum in Phoenix USA in October and right now we’re going full steam ahead recruiting national distribution partners for Cloud-UCX.”
