Western Australian Internet service provider (ISP) iiNet has launched a new telecommunications carrier, Chime Communications.
Chime will initially focus on providing wholesale telephony and data services to retail ISPs, corporate and government clients.
The development and implementation of the core technology platform was assisted by Cisco Systems, who funded the initial rollout. The company will be using Cisco 5x00 Access Servers for all incoming calls.
Since December 2000, iiNet has been replacing its Telstra ISDN services with Chime services.
Currently Chime offers coverage in Perth and most major regional centres in WA. The network is being rolled out in other capital cities.
