Nashville, TN - December 28, 2010 - Nashville-based Equinox Information Systems today announced that I WIRELESS, a partnership between T-Mobile USA and Iowa Network Services, has licensed TeleLink mediation software. The software works seamlessly to mediate records from the Nokia wireless switch and PacketCore data network to a customer billing system.
TeleLink streamlines operations by automating the flow and ensuring the integrity of usage data as it travels to billing and other downstream OSS processes. For I WIRELESS, TeleLink was customized with business rules that filter out all of the pre-paid customer usage data so that only post-paid customer usage traffic is delivered to the billing system.
“We are pleased with Equinox Information Systems’ willingness to work with us to create the specific mediation and reporting tools that we need,” said Carey Stover, Billing and Receivables Director at I WIRELESS. “In addition to billing facilitation, TeleLink will give us the ability to quickly identify and route non-customer roaming traffic and forward it to the Near Real-Time Roaming Data Exchange (NRTRDE).”
“TeleLink is a flexible mediation platform that allows telcos to apply business rules, enrich, filter, convert, and deliver usage data to billing and other OSS systems in the appropriate format,” stated David West, Equinox Executive Vice President. “Carriers like I WIRELESS need an integrated, flexible system that can adapt and grow to support numerous management and reporting systems. As such, TeleLink is a scalable mediation platform that will grow alongside I WIRELESS.”
