Internet Security Threat Report 2014

World CallNet, owner of hard-pressed toll-free operator CallNet 0800, has secured a huge boost from Cisco's money arm. Cisco Capital is using lease finance to fund the expansion of World CallNet's network infrastructure. At the same time, it has brought on board Siemens Network Systems, one of Britain's biggest network resellers, to design and plan future network upgrades, based of course around Cisco equipment. This is great news for CallNet 0800 subscribers. World CallNet had a great idea , so great that it got swamped by wannabe customers. It lacked the wherewithal to handle this on its own. With backing from the big boys, CallNet 0800 should fly. But not immediately. It's going to take a few days to ramp up on the router front. CallNet 0800 says it will double its existing UK capacity by adding more Cisco ports "prior to the New Year". The company anticipates "continued growth of its CallNet0800 service, which following its launch on the 1st November 1999 achieved 105,000 registrations by 3rd December 1999". World CallNet also operates M@ilTV. ® Related stories CallNet to re-open registration site So how good is CallNet 0800? TV brings email to the masses
