Nokia Teams with CommTel and Soul in Australia

CommTel Network Solutions Australia, a value added network integrator, will supply Nokia' broadband DSL solutions and related services to the Soul group of companies all operating in Australia. Deliveries commenced in January 2006 and the system will be up and running during April 2006.

The deployment includes the Nokia D500 IP Multi Service Access Node, which can deliver access in excess of 24 Mbps, IPTV, and VoIP in conjunction with Soul's SIP-based softswitch.

Soul is the new brand name for the SPT group of companies which includes Soul Pattinson Telecommunications, B Digital, Digiplus, Kooee and SPTCom (formerly Comindico) all operating in Australia. The Soul network is a fully converged video, voice and data IP-based network with distributed switching throughout regional Australia. These capabilities enable Soul to deliver broadband products and services, whether voice, video or data, through to the "last mile" on its own fully converged network throughout metropolitan, regional and rural Australia.
