(NASHVILLE, TN) December 7, 2016 — Leading telecom solutions supplier Equinox Information Systems announced today that Cincinnati Bell Inc. (NYSE: CBB) has extended its licensing and upgraded to the latest version of the TeleLink platform. Cincinnati Bell initially deployed the TeleLink solution in 2004. Since that time, Cincinnati Bell has relied on TeleLink to mediate its usage records from multiple data sources, compiling them into a single, complete record that is delivered to billing and other operational support systems downstream. TeleLink also extracts, enriches, and stores this usage data, allowing Cincinnati Bell to analyze and report upon its network activity.
“As a company serving customers for over 140 years, it’s imperative that we continue to not only address the current market demands but also lay the groundwork for the future,” said Chris Breving, Director of Voice Network Operations for Cincinnati Bell. “TeleLink’s data access lets us analyze both current network activity and historical trends as we plan our next innovation.”
TeleLink’s mediation abilities are extremely robust, allowing disparate records to easily be standardized, searched, stored, and delivered to other business and operational systems. Its powerful search and reporting tools offer unparalleled access to the data it captures and stores. Its usage analytics features provide the basis for many revenue assurance and cost management initiatives.
“TeleLink’s tools give Cincinnati Bell valuable insight to the data it needs to continue its tradition of customer satisfaction and technological innovation,” stated Equinox Executive Vice President David West. “We value the long-standing relationship we’ve established with Cincinnati Bell and look forward to serving the company for years to come.”
