Telecoms Cloud Networks Limited

ASN: 203421

Telecoms Cloud is an independent, Ofcom-licenced public electronic communications network based in the UK. Our network has been designed to give software developers, system integrators and manufacturers of connected devices real-time API control to the pubic telecommunications network. This allows you to build any type of application you wish with just a few lines of code, without having to worry about back-end connectivity, network agreements, infrastructure costs or equipment maintenance. We offer features such as Voice (SIP and TDM numbering, IVR, network level call recording, call queuing, Secure Fax services etc), various SMS and mobile services, Data services (phone number lookup, TPS checking, location services, etc.) and we also operate our own dedicated Machine-to-Machine (M2M) mobile network for the Internet of Things (IoT). We operate an open peering policy, meaning any LINX member who wishes to peer with us can do so in order to take advantage of a better and more secure route for voice and other traffic. This is especially advantageous for time-sensitive and confidential transactions where low latency and high security are a must, for example high volumes of outbound text messages containing two-factor authentication codes. In addition to this, we offer various other services for business end-users, such as worldwide phone numbers, cloud fax numbers, call recording, internet phone lines and hardware and SMS services, all configurable instantly in real-time either via secure web portal or REST API. Relied on by thousands of customers from public sector bodies to multinational corporations for their critical day-to-day operations, Telecoms Cloud's goal is to connect every device to its Telecoms platform.

“TENET” is a registered short name for the Tertiary Education and Research Network of South Africa (RF) - NPC. TENET was created in August 2000 by the public universities of South Africa as the organisational home of and vehicle for collaborative internetworking by universities, science councils and associated support institutions (“the institutions”), replacing the then UNINET Project of the then Foundation for Research Development. TENET was originally incorporated under the Companies Act as what was then called a “Section 21 Company”. Recent amendments to the Companies Act led TENET to re-incorporate as a non-profit company with members. It is recognised by SARS as a Public Benefit Organisation that is exempt from income tax. TENET holds electronic communications licenses from ICASA that permit TENET to build and operate electronic communications networks, including optical fibre networks, and to provide electronic communications services to other parties. TENET is a founder member of the UbuntuNet Alliance for Research and Education Networking, the regional research and education network organisation for eastern and southern Africa. The Alliance provides TENET (and other African NRENs) with connectivity in London and Amsterdam to other research and education networks of the World and to the Internet worldwide. TENET does not provide services to commercial entities and does not participate in the commercial market for Internet services. All public universities and science councils qualify to participate in TENET’s governance as members. TENET is managed by a Board of 13 Directors, 11 of whom are elected by the members. The Chairperson and CEO are appointed by the Board and are also Directors. Operational control is delegated to the CEO who is supported by three other executive officers and eleven other staff members. TENET makes substantial use of expert consultants. Eleven members of staff, including the executive officers, are based at the head office in Wynberg, Cape Town. The other four staff members are based at TENET’s Network Operations Centre in Johannesburg.
