agreement with Telstra Wholesale which will see the retail and
wholesale voice-over-IP provider launch 3G and 4G services.

combined coverage (with 3G) of 98.8% of the Australian

"With more consumers bypassing the NBN and turning to
'mobile-only' as the alternative, we wanted to offer iBoss
customers a go to market solution for reaching this growing
consumer segment" said Rene Sugo, CEO of MNF Group.
"For us, it's not just about selling the services. Our iBoss
mobile enablement platform provides the deep integration,
automation and self-service capabilities to deliver a truly
value-added solution that new market entrants are looking
MNF was founded in 2004 and listed on the ASX two years
later. It acquired the iBoss platform, giving it a wholesale
telecoms enablement arm, for AU$14 million in 2014.
Telstra Wholesale executive director of sales Glenn Osborne
claimed the platform had a long history of being used with
Telstra’s wholesale division.
"We are looking forward to the success of our MVNO agreement
with the MNF Group," he added. "The iBoss enablement platform
has a long history interoperating with Telstra, being the first
to onboard with the Telstra WME platform."
