AARNet Unified Communications Service Update

AARNet’s Unified Communications service streamlines interoperability between voice, video, and content enabling our customers to collaborate easily from geographically diverse locations using their institution’s choice of devices. This means that staff can collaborate from the office and remote locations using smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers.

With an increasing number of customer institutions now using the service, the AARNet Unified Communications Exchange is proving to be a robust and reliable platform for delivering a high quality experience. We will continue to fine tune the platform to integrate emerging products and technologies.

We are also currently trialling managed services in this area to address commonly-faced issues that prevent customers from taking full advantage of our Unified Communications infrastructure.

Global RealTime Communications Project

AARNet is continuing to play an active leadership role in growing the Global Realtime Communications (GRTC) service to to facilitate collaboration between institutions connected to participating national research and education networks (NRENs).

REANNZ, the New Zealand NREN is the latest NREN to join. In the past six months we have also assisted ERNET (India), HARNET (Hong Kong), and JANET (UK) to join, or trial, as was the case for JANET, the Global Research and Academic ENUM tree (nrenum.net). NRENum.net is the critical infrastructure that underpins the GRTC service.

While we continue to develop and test call scenarios with our International NREN partners we are also eager to work with and test a range of real use cases. We’re interested in helping International collaboration groups deliver communication services over the GRTC platform using institutions’ existing multimedia systems.

For a list of nations participating in the global NRENum.net community and the GRTC, please refer to the member section at http://www.nrenum.net.

To learn more, or suggest an international collaboration group involved in research and education, please contact Bill Efthimiou on +612 97796952 or email:bill.efthimiou@aarnet.edu.au.
