Nashville, TN April 9, 2015 — Nashville-based Equinox Information Systems reports that First Communications, a leading technology solutions provider in the Midwest, has licensed the Protector fraud management solution (FMS) from Equinox. First Communications and Equinox began a business relationship 17 years ago when First Communications originally implemented Equinox solutions for CDR collection and reporting. In recent years, First Communications also selected and deployed Equinox’s TeleLink platform to mediate their usage data for delivery to its billing system vendor. When this latest business assurance project arose, First Communications turned to Equinox once again.
“Equinox values the established relationship we have with First Communications and appreciates the continued opportunity to assist them,” said David West, Executive Vice President of Equinox Information Systems. “There’s no greater testament to the personal service and reliable solutions we provide then when someone who is already licensing our usage analytics system turns to us for help in the fraud management arena.”
Protector is widely recognized as the industry’s most reliable and affordable tool for combatting telecommunications fraud and is used by Equinox customers to process hundreds of millions of call records per day around the globe.
“First Communications values our long standing relationship with Equinox.” said Abby Knowlton, Vice President Carrier Relations of First Communications. “We look forward to their continued support for data information services and tools.”
