AFP calls for IP telephony solution

The AFP planned to replace its existing voice solution on an ‘as needed’ basis and needs a service provider to maintain and replace, the existing Avaya environment; and the replacement its existing solution – as it was progressively decommissioned.

Currently, the AFP uses an internal six digit dial-plan, where there is a direct mapping between the six digit dial-plan and the equivalent PSTN number.
Whilst the majority of phones will be delivered as IP end stations, from time to time it’s not appropriate for IP stations to be provisioned. 
According to the AFP’s tender document, it was seeking solutions to provide phone capabilities without having to provision an IP connection.
Off the back of its tender release, the AFP has also been recognised at the Cannes Film Festival for its 2009 National Missing Persons Week campaign,
The advertisement edged out 26 others from international companies including BMW, ING Direct, Bayer and Mercedes to take the Silver Dolphin Award, at the Cannes Corporate Media and TV Awards last week
The 60-second commercial ran in the lead-up to the 2009 National Missing Persons Week campaign and showed four families sharing their stories of loss and anxiety, reflecting the theme of the campaign, Not knowing is like living in darkness.
The advertisement was the culmination of the creative efforts of the AFP’s Corporate Communications team members Marina Simoncini, Greg Primmer and Mike Punch and Canberra-based production company Screencraft.
National Missing Persons Week’s held each August to raise awareness of the issues and impacts surrounding missing persons.
In 2009, the focus of the Week was on older people with dementia as a key group at risk of going missing.
