Network Features

Unique Network

Soul's network uses latest network architecture, but what really makes our network unique is that is has been purpose-built to carry dedicated IP traffic privately, securely and with inherent Quality of Service (QoS).

Soul became the first telecommunications company in the world to deliver 22Mbps digital television service and sound (DVB) successfully as native IP traffic.

Fully Distributed Private Network (MPLS)

We have invested in a fully-distributed core ring across metropolitan, regional and remote areas of Australia. Our network sets Soul apart from the rest when it comes to delivering the highest end-to-end network performance.

High performance is addressed through 24/7 network monitoring, network security, redundant and uninterruptible power supply, air-conditioned environments and smoke detection alarms.

An extensive range of corporate, government, wholesale and retail products are available across the network including comprehensive firewalls, network management and consultancy.

National Voice Network

Soul has developed and rolled out a national IP voice-based network that is the second largest in the country. Soul interconnects with many other carriers including Telstra. The network covers all 66 Call Collection Areas (CCA) across the country and can terminate calls locally to over 98% of Australia. Soul's voice network is state-of-the-art including comprehensive class 4 and 5 switches.

Extensive DSL Network Infrastructure

Soul has built extensive DSLAM infrastructure in more than 320 Telstra exchanges across Australia, connected by a high speed, redundant backbone. Our DSLAM network is managed ourselves, allowing Soul to deliver high speed, cost-effective 'last mile' solutions to our customers.
