NASHVILLE, TN - Dec. 15, 1998 - Equinox Information Systems, a leading provider of custom and commercial software to the telecommunications industry, today released CDR 2000. CDR 2000 is a Year 2000 testing system that enables telephone companies to prepare effectively for the new millennium by testing applications that interact with Call Detail Records (CDRs) for Year 2000 compliance.
CDR 2000 is comprised of two modules: a data conversion utility, and a real-time CDR simulator. The data conversion module is a comprehensive data-aging tool that automatically turns existing call detail records forward in time to simulate the coming millennium. The real-time CDR simulator inputs this test data and performs a real time delivery of the files.
"It is not enough to test your systems with Y2K test data; you have to do it in a real time Y2K environment," explains Wayne Lowe, President of Equinox Information Systems. "CDR 2000 is the only software product that ages CDRs intelligently, simulating a real time delivery of CDRs."
Benefits of CDR 2000 include:
With the deadline looming, and all the unanticipated work surrounding testing, every decision will be crucial. Most telcos cannot afford the time to write their own utilities for Year 2000 testing; it is a complex job and it would take away valuable human resources needed for other tasks.
Equinox Information Systems has the answer: CDR 2000 pays for itself in immediate productivity gains for your Year 2000 team. It pays for itself a second time when your applications run error free on January 1, 2000 due to your accurate testing.
