OneAccess Adds Promptus as Master Distributer for Australia & New Zealand

OneAccess, European leader of enterprise access routers and professional multiplay IP devices, today announced the execution of a Master Distributor agreement with Promptus Communications based in Sydney Australia, a leading value-added distributor specializing in IP telephony and converged access solutions in Australia and New Zealand.

Under the agreement, Promptus will market and distribute OneAccess’s full line of business-class routers based on OneOS software for data, voice and multi-service applications, in Australia and New Zealand. The integrated access device (IAD) product line features VOIP functionalities providing best-in-class interface combinations to connect phones, faxes, PABX, and LAN workstations and is ideally suited for telecom operators and service providers wanting to deliver bundled voice and data services to small- and medium-sized businesses.  The IP router product line offers scalable and configurable, secure, high-speed Internet/IP-VPN connections for small and medium businesses. OneAccess and Promptus will jointly engage in market development and demand creation in Australia and New Zealand, which will be serviced and supported regionally by Promptus.

“We are pleased to market OneAccess’s market-leading VoIP, VoATM, VoDSL access solutions to service providers and VAR channels in Australia and New Zealand,” said Michael Smith, Chief Executive Officer, Promptus Communications Group. “As carriers in our region begin moving toward voice-over-packet solutions that deliver converged voice and data access and triple play services, OneAccess’s products are well positioned for these markets. Our distribution relationship with OneAccess reflects our commitment to provide our customers with best-in-class products that address this emerging market.”

Bertrand Meis, OneAccess Networks CEO added: “We are proud of this partnership with Promptus, one of the most important distributors of integrated access devices in the Asia Pacific area. In such a fast improving market, it is important to find a good partner to support our innovative technology. Our range of products is now widely deployed over Europe. This alliance with Promptus is a key strategy for answering the Asia Pacific expectations and sizeable quantities should be in operation soon.”

The Asia Pacific region has been identified as a high growth and emerging market for broadband and converged access services. In a recently published report by the Dell’Oro Group, a market research analyst firm based in Redwood City, CA., Dell’Oro Group estimated that DSL subscriber lines will grow by more than double by 2008. According to the firm’s report, the Asia Pacific region was estimated to have 45 Million DSL lines in service in 2004, going to over 93 Million subscriber lines in service by 2008, growing over 105% in the next 3-year period.
