Equinox Introduces Advanced Traffic Analysis System to Help Carriers Save Money and Increase Efficiency

Manager Helps Telephone Companies Manage Complex Traffic Patterns

NASHVILLE, TN - July 15, 1999 - Rapid advances in the telecommunications industry have fueled the use and complexity of network services. To help providers manage these complex traffic patterns, Equinox Information Systems today introduces Manager, an advanced traffic analysis system. The new system, which functions on a Windows NT operating system, is designed to help carriers provision and optimize their networks, manage reseller accounts, verify routing and billing, and reduce losses associated with poor network planning.

"Without an effective traffic analysis system, carriers have no way of verifying and controlling costs," explains Lee McDaniel, Voice Network Consultant. "Manager 99 offers carriers an exceptional cost defense mechanism by providing a full range of traffic summaries that contain detailed call usage information unavailable from a switch. Because the reports use actual, unfiltered call detail information--a standard form of data for billing and line cost verification--Manager 99 is a valuable resource within a variety of business areas. Billing departments can reconcile their records, network engineers can configure the best network design, line cost engineers can validate LD and CABS invoices, while network operations engineers can trouble shoot and make network corrections."

With this new release, Manager 99 builds on its proven advantages with many new powerful features including greater reporting flexibility and refined data compression. Along with enhanced usability, these features help users:

  • Maximize reporting flexibility--Users can build unlimited profiles or categories of trunks to generate a full range of reports.
  • Quickly verify billing and carrier systems--Because Manager is CDR-based, users can verify their carrier billing or routing translation using unfiltered data from a standard source in useful units--calls and minutes.
  • Save network space--Manager processes raw AMA files into summary files to improve speed and minimize storage by 75%.
  • Create customized reports--Because of its open-ended architecture, users have maximum flexibility to output or print reports in Access, Excel, comma delineated form, or ASCII.

In addition, Manager 99 can be interfaced with Equinox's integrated suite of network management applications--ShowCDR, AccessCDR, and International Activity Viewer--to provide enhanced insight into network traffic.
