ASX listed Aleator Energy Limited (AWD) has signed a HOA to acquire 100% of the issued capital of Vonex Limited, an award winning fully integrated telecommunications company and cloud based PBX business with a strong growth profile.
Vonex is an award winning Perth based technology company that has 3 distinctive divisions being a development and engineering arm, wholesale arm and its retail arm.
Vonex's core business consists of a cloud hosted PBX (Vonex PBX). A PBX (Private Branch Exchange) is a telephone system within an enterprise that switches calls between enterprise users on local lines while allowing all users to share a certain number of external phone lines. Typically a PBX operates through a physical box into which all the telecommunication lines for an enterprise are connected.
The Vonex PBX has removed the need for a physical box and allows for the operation of the PBX to occur via the internet/cloud. The Vonex PBX means a business can have offices in multiple locations around a city, country or the world and transfer calls seamlessly between these locations.
The main aspects of the Vonex Business are:
- Vonex PBX and wholesale arm: Vonex sells the Vonex PBX "white label" to internet telecommunication service providers (ITSP's,) or small telecommunication carriers who in turn on sell the Vonex PBX product to end users. The ITSP’s and carriers (which Vonex refer to as “wholesalers”) are then charged for each phone that is connected to the Vonex PBX platform.
- Retail telecommunications business - Vonex Telecom: Vonex's subsidiary operates as a full telecommunication carriage services provider (CSP), selling a range of telecommunication products including internet, mobile sim plans, phones, landlines, business fibre, phone plans, national broadband network (NBN) products and most importantly access to the Vonex PBX.
- Technology development – oper8tor App: Vonex’s development arm is currently developing an App that re-invents communications worldwide, called "oper8tor". It is intended that the oper8tor App will be a multi-platform voice, messaging and social media app that allows users to connect with all social media friends, followers and contacts from a single app.
