ISDN end-of-life Jan 31 2018

ISDN is on the way out, so if you have managed to avoid the NBN-rush and you don’t already have a VoIP-enabled phone system, now is a good time to begin planning to move.

Telstra says ISDN is end-of-life because it is old-tech and will be disconnected when NBN rolls out completely over the next five years.

The important dates for Telstra’s ISDN phase-out:

  • 31 January 2018 - No New ISDN services - if you don’t already have any ISDN services, you won’t be able to get any additional services.
  • 30 June 2018 - No new modifications or additions - you won’t be able to get new ISDN services at all.
  • June 2019 - Telstra will start disconnecting existing ISDN services
  • 2022 - Telstra will stop supporting all ISDN2, ISDN2 Enhanced, ISDN10/20/30, DDS Fastway, Megalink and Frame Relay services.

Don’t panic – call Evotec

The end of ISDN is nothing to worry about – VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is now very reliable and offers more flexibility and features than the old-tech PSTN/ISDN.

And most businesses should save money because VoIP calls are cheaper. However, there are some pitfalls to avoid, so it is best to get some professional advice on:

  • Upgrading your existing phone system vs buying a new one
  • Selecting a hosted VoIP system vs an on-premise VoIP-enabled PBX
  • Network capacity and speed – if your data traffic is congested you may need to improve your internet connection bandwidth and speed or risk poor voice quality.

Beware the hard sell

When your area becomes slated for NBN roll-out, you will get lots of attention from commission-driven, door-to-door sales people.

Some have limited expertise in business communications and may tell you that you need a new phone system, when you actually don’t.

Others will try to rush you into a deal that does not suit your business needs. And some may try to bundle-in features you don’t want or need, so you end up paying more than you did before.

Evotec is offering a free, no-obligation consultation on your move from ISDN to VoIP. We have a range of options to suit small to medium-sized businesses and larger enterprises too, tailored to suit your business.

And we can design and install improved IT systems, data cabling, networking, switches and WiFi networking.
So please call Evotec on 1300 133 996 before you make a decision.

Veeam Availability Suite v9

Veeam-V9-650x159

Digital Transformation makes Availability even more important.

In this digital age, with Hybrid Cloud environments, SaaS, IoT, BYOD, e-commerce and social media, if your apps are not up and running 24.7.365, you're out of business.

Reliable and swift backup and recovery is mission critical for almost every business.  The damage in IT downtime is not just a loss of business, you also have to count the cost of:

  • Loss of customer confidence - negative Customer Satisfaction
  • Damage to brand identity - negative PR
  • Loss of employee confidence - negative Employee Satisfaction.

The new Veeam Availability Suite v9 is out now and has put Veeam on the Gartner 2016 leader board for Backup and Recovery software.

Key Features

  • Enterprise Continuity - less than 15 minutes to recover ALL applications and data
  • Workload mobility - provide availability for ALL workloads across ANY cloud or location
  • Compliance and Visibility - design your recovery plan and document it and maintain it over time
  • High-speed recovery - get going again in minutes - minimal downtime
  • Verified recoverability - get going again with confidence - guaranteed recovery of every file, application, or virtual server
  • Complete visibility - proactive monitoring and alerting of issues before operational impact
  •  Data Loss avoidance - Low RPOs and streamlined disaster recovery
  • Leveraged Data - low-risk deployment with a production-like test environment
  • High scalability and performance - exceeding SLAs with new backup and VM restore acceleration and processing technologies
  • Full support for Windows Server 2016
  • Direct restore to Microsoft Azure
  • New Windows and Linux Veeam Agents for Public Cloud Availability as well as physical endpoints, workstations and serviers - enable workload mobility by allowing wordloads to move from on-premise to the cloud.
  • Veeam Agents have Enterprise-level features like Application-aware processing and Flexible scheduling and retention options.

 

Veeam Availability Suite v9 will feature Veam Availability Orchestrator (available early 2017) which will enable the design, implementation, testing and documentation of Disaster Recovery Plans for all physical workloads, managed/private cloud, public cloud -  under a single pane management view.

The DR testing will be automated and non-disruptive and the compliance and documentation will be built-in and automatically updated to satisfy compliance requirements.

This is of great value because, as we all know, documentation is boring, which makes it difficult to write and maintain - and Murphy's Law dictates that when incident reminds us of its importance, it is usually to late to do anything about it.
