JD Group chooses dns telecom


dns telecom, a converged telecommunications solutions company, has been contracted by the JD Group to install digital IP-enabled telephone exchanges for their PABX replacement program across the group, which consists of some 1100 branches. The currently installed equipment is a mixture of analogue and Telkom rented units.

"This replacement program, which is part of an entire convergence strategy, will enable the JD group not only to make substantial savings on their PBX equipment, but also deploy a next generation network, culminating in a major reduction in group communication costs on all our voice traffic, regardless of whether it is GSM calls, national calls, international calls inter-branch calls or inter-community calls," comments Gerrie Van Niekerk of the JD group.
"We have deliberately kept our voice and data networks separate as we do not want to risk our existing IT infrastructure by handling voice traffic and thus this new project doesn't cause any interruptions to our day to day computer operations."
"We are obviously delighted to be working with a corporate of such stature as the JD Group and have already completed the installation of over 300 branches since the project started in Q4 last year," adds Laurence Stafford, a director and founder of dns telecom.
