MNF Enterprise and AARNet announce cloud calling partnership



Carrier-grade voice communications solution for Australia’s Academic and Research Network (AARNet) customers

Sydney – 18 February 2020 – MNF Enterprise, a specialist carrier for new-generation enterprise  communications solutions and part of the MNF Group, has partnered with Australia’s Academic and Research Network (AARNet) to provide voice communications solutions to the nation’s research and education sector.

MNF Enterprise is working closely with AARNet to customise IP voice and unified communications solutions - including SIP trunking, number porting and virtual numbers - to replace and modernise end-of-life phone services, such as ISDN and copper lines. This will provide AARNet customers with cost-effective, streamlined and secure voice communications over the AARNet network.

AARNet is a not-for-profit National Research and Education Network (NREN) and licensed telecommunications carrier. AARNet operates a high capacity data network purpose-built to meet the needs of Australian universities, research institutes, schools and other organisations with a research and education mission. The AARNet network connects over two million users – including researchers, faculty, staff and students – to the Internet, each other, scientific tools and a wide array of cloud services and specialist online resources.

“We’re pleased to be offering the MNF Enterprise voice communications solution on the AARNet network. AARNet focuses on partnering with best-of-breed global companies like MNF Group to make it easier for our customers to deploy services, achieve outcomes and enable innovation in teaching, learning and research,” AARNet Chief Executive Officer, Chris Hancock said.

The MNF Enterprise solutions will be scaled to work reliably for AARNet customers, which range from those with tens of users to up to thousands of users.

“MNF Enterprise has been providing IP voice services and unified communications to government organisations and large enterprises for some time. These organisations trust that MNF Enterprise delivers a high-quality service to its customers,” MNF Enterprise General Manager, Greg Round said.

“MNF Enterprise’s expanding range of products for delivering exceptional phone services and seamless collaboration means that AARNet will be able to address customer needs as they evolve into the future.”

MNF Enterprise’s SIP trunks and virtual numbers can be used with all major on-premise PBXs, as well as leading cloud solutions such as Microsoft Teams and Cisco’s Webex Calling.

“Organisations within the education and research sector typically operate on lean budgets. By moving their voice communications into the cloud, and taking advantage of leading-edge technologies, presents the opportunity to reduce communications spend,” Round added.
