The Phone Modules allows its user to take advantages of
the large number of different communication networks available.
Allowing them to place and receive phone calls between Normal
Phones (landline and mobile), Internet
Phones (hardware and software) and Private
Switches (phone equivalent of web sites where people can call
to either provide information or access information).
Knowledge by Design (KbD, OZtell's parent company) has been operating
Internet based phone services since 1997. After 7 years of commercial
experience in Internet telephony, the Phone Modules was developed
to complement the traditonal and emerging phone networks by providing
management layer on top of them.
It is important to realise that OZtell is offering a comprehensive
phone MANAGER and not a simple phone SERVICE. We are deliverig a
superior class of functionality than both the traditional and the
Internet based phone companies.
Phone calls can be intermixed between normal phones, internet phones
and phone sites. Unlike other phone networks (internet based or
traditional), the Phone Modules has been specifically engineered
with the extra features necessary for the delivery of voice
interactions rather than just delivering voice communications.
The Phone Modules is cheap
and simple to use yet delivering substantial
benefits to the user: saving time, reducing complexity, increasing
control, expanding reach, gaining functionality and lowering costs.
There are two cost components in making calls with the Phone Modules.
Dial-in (that is calling into the Phone Modules) and Dial-Out (that
is calling out from the Phone Modules).
To get the total cost of a call just add the two components together.
It does not matter whether it is someone calling you (inbound) or
you calling someone (outbound). For example,
- if both dial-in and dial-out is via Internet Phones then the
call is FREE
- if it is Normal Phone calling Normal Phone via Phone Gateways
then it is TWO LOCAL call charge
- if dial-in is Internet Phone and dial-out is Phone Gateway then
the call is ONE LOCAL call charge
- if someone dial-in using Phone Gateway to leave a voice message
or listen to email on the Phone Site then it is ONE LOCAL call
- if the Phone Site sends a fax to a Normal Phone (fax machine)
via the Phone Gateway then it is ONE LOCAL call charge.
Things really get interesting when you realised that the costs quoted
in the above examples (free or local charge) apply worldwide - whether
the two calling parties are next to each other or thousands of kilometers
apart. So, as long as there is a phone gateway in both cities, only
the cost of two local calls are incurred, whether it is Sydney to
Melbourne or Paris to Hong Kong.
Basically, with the Phone Modules, the costs of phone calls have
become Distance Independent.

Manager of Phone Networks
As its name implies the Phone Modules was not designed to be just
a phone network, but a manager of phone services. Being able to
make and receive calls (what phone networks do) is a very small
part of what Phone Modules does.
If a competitive comparison must be made, then the post below provides
a detailed list:
However, the aim of the Phone Manage is to work with and not against
Phone networks. Phone Modules provides a layer of phone services
ON TOP of phone networks (normal or Internet based ones), allowing
users to get the most from the underlying networks.
