Nashville, TN - December 19, 2005 - Nashville-based Equinox Information Systems today announced the expansion of its mediation system, Collector, to include additional options for AMA and CDR collection from Lucent and Nortel switches.
For the Lucent 5ESS switch, the company has added an option to Collector for performing the mediation process using Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) over a network connection, in addition to its existing solution for collecting CDRs using an X.25 link.
Equinox also added an option to collect CDRs in batch mode from the Nortel DMS 100 or DMS 250 using the XFER process. Previously Collector only supported real-time CDR delivery using the AMA process.
"In both cases, we enhanced our applications based on customer's specific needs. For the Lucent switch, the modification was prompted by a change in the switching platform to only support IP mediation." noted David West, Executive Vice President of Equinox. "The change for the Nortel switches was to accommodate a customer with an older switch software load, who wanted to avoid upgrading their switch software. In both cases our knowledgeable and experienced staff was able to quickly and cost-effectively modify our tools to meet the customer's need."
