EDCO Acquires TCP/IP Mediation System from Equinox Information Systems

System to Reduce the Transfer Time of EDCO's Call Recordss

NASHVILLE, TN - May 18, 1999 - Equinox Information Systems today announced the sale of Collector (TCP/IP) to EDCO, a switch-based provider and reseller of telecommunications services. Collector (TCP/IP) is an intelligent software mediation solution that downloads call detail records (CDRs) off of a switch via a TCP/IP communications link. The primary benefit of Collector (TCP/IP) is a significant reduction in the transfer time of call records from a switch allowing billing systems to process calls faster and fraud detection systems to monitor traffic in an extremely efficient fashion.

Collector (TCP/IP) features include:

  • Transfer of call records to up to 2 IP addresses
  • Call records can be transferred in three ways: immediately, once a day, and weekly
  • A restart option that allows users to begin a transfer at the point in the last file where the transfer stopped
  • Log files keep track of when the files are created, closed, the size of the file, and any errors

Edward Fantegrossi, CEO of EDCO, explained, "We chose Equinox Information Systems because of their ability and willingness to customize Collector (TCP/IP) to meet our network needs allowing us to serve our customers in a more cost effective manner. In addition, their responsiveness and customer support is terrific."

Wayne Lowe, the President of Equinox Information Systems, commented, "Collector (TCP/IP) is an extraordinarily powerful mediation application that provides wireline carriers with the ability to proactively manage the transmission of their call records, resulting in increased revenue and reduced operating costs."

EDCO is a US Global Section 214 facility-based licensed wholesale carrier. The company provides international long distance voice services to other carriers. The company also provides co-location facilities.
