Nashville, TN - November 6, 2006 - Nashville-based Equinox Information Systems today announced that Marshall Islands National Telecommunications Authority, the incumbent telecommunications operator in the Marshall Islands, has licensed the Collector AFT/EIU mediation system as well as ExtractCDR to automate its call detail record (CDR) transmission process.
"Collector AFT/EIU offers great value when compared to the price of building a custom software system to download usage records in real-time via a high-speed Ethernet Interface Unit," explained Ron Cenicola, CFO for Marshall Islands National Telecommunications Authority. "In addition to a great price, Collector AFT/EIU comes with advanced features, such as e-mail alarm notification, to ensure the quality of usage data transfers."
Collector AFT/EIU provides real-time delivery of usage records and supports a number of switch types and communication protocols including X.25, TCP/IP, and file transfer protocol (FTP). ExtractCDR transforms raw switch data and billing records into usable formats.
"Collector and ExtractCDR are software systems that have been installed around the world by telecoms," noted David West, Executive Vice President for Equinox. "The Pacific Islands now represent one more spot on the world map where Equinox software is installed and supporting the communications infrastructure."
