Nashville, TN - October 10, 2006 - Nashville-based Equinox Information Systems today announced that Cellular One of East Central Illinois has licensed Collector and TeleLink to integrate with Cellular One's Ericsson AXE10 and Nokia switches. Collector provides real-time delivery of usage records to a carrier's local area network (LAN). TeleLink facilitates the delivery of usage records to downstream processes by filtering and converting usage data to compatible formats for operational support systems (OSS).
"Equinox's reputation in the communications industry was a key factor in the decision-making process," explained Ryan Shepherd of Cellular One. "Between these two software applications, Cellular One has greatly advanced in terms of simplifying our billing processes and improving overall efficiency."
TeleLink streamlines operations by automating the flow and ensuring the integrity of usage data as it travels from the switching platform to billing and other downstream OSS processes. The application reduces the complexity of multi-switch networks by proactively managing the transmission and transformation of usage records.
"We are delighted with Cellular One's decision to license Equinox mediation software," commented David West, Equinox Executive Vice President. "This agreement reinforces our commitment to deliver the industry's most competitive mediation platform and supports our goal of becoming a recognized leader in the integration of operational support systems for the communications industry."
