The University of Melbourne breaks new ground as the first Australian university to sign on for the Amcom Cloud Collaboration (AAC) service. This follows the announcement earlier this year of the partnership between AARNet and Amcom to deliver hosted telephony services for the Research and Education sector.

The ACC platform, powered by Cisco’s Hosted Collaboration Solution will provide approximately 13,000 users, across the University’s campuses in metropolitan and rural Victoria, with access to an enterprise-grade telephony and unified communications solution.

Through the Amcom/AARNet partnership, ACC will provide The University of Melbourne with a pay-as-you-use cloud collaboration service featuring Telephony, Video Telephony, Voicemail, Instant Messaging, Presence and Mobility (collaboration on smartphones and tablets).

The University will also benefit from:

  • Reduced support cost compared to the University’s current on-premise solution
  • Easier access and faster deployment of future applications and features

Sendur Kathir, CIO of The University of Melbourne said:

“The world of education providers is changing and the model for delivering technology, communication and collaboration tools we use needs to change with it. Our strategy is to be experts in the use of the technology, rather than spending all our efforts managing, maintaining and delivering it at huge expense. We have chosen Amcom to deliver our Unified Communications solution as it provides the flexibility we require and the best experience at the most cost effective price.”

Amcom Cloud Collaboration is offered to AARNet customers under the AARNet+ program, a standard process for the evaluation, integration and ongoing use of cloud services.
