This year marked one of Comvergence’s busiest, but also our most successful, since we opened our doors in 2005.
Here’s a snapshot of the main events that put a smile on our rotary dial this year:

First Quarter
The start of the year saw us consolidate multiple internal and customer-facing servers into a Comvergence Managed Cloud VMWARE environment. We also completed interconnection with a major wireless service provider, while in March we formed a partnership with Pronto Software to allow us to connect retailers and/or end users into Pronto Hosted Services for their Point-of-Sale devices.

Second Quarter
Comvergence Mobile SIM cards were directly connected to our network and allocated a Comvergence Public or Private IP address. In May, we increased our monitoring network to manage over 100 nodes on the Comvergence network for real time email, SMS and MSN notifications. We also increased interconnections points of presence to carriers to provide increased failover for DSL and EFM connections.

Third Quarter
The new financial year saw us complete the first of two major upgrades on our PortaOne VoIP platform as part of a major infrastructure improvement. It was a substantial new investment on the network both on hardware and software.

The other big event for us in our third quarter was taking up residence with five racks in NEXTDC’s flagship M1 data centre in Port Melbourne. The digital economy evolves before us.

Fourth Quarter
Our latest managed building – in Manly, on Sydney’s northern beaches – went live, increasing our foothold in managed buildings. We also successfully completed the second phase of our major voice system upgrade, complete with new firewalls cutover. In the run-up to Christmas, we deployed new routers and switches to further increase resiliency and reduce any single point of failure on the network.

Overall, a pretty packed year and one which sets us up for an exciting 2013.
