Fraud Detection and CDR Utilities Offer PaeTec Maximum Fraud Security and Network Management

FAIRPORT, NY- June 21, 2001- PaeTec Corp., a holding company whose principal subsidiary is PaeTec Communications, Inc., an integrated communications provider (ICP), today announced that it has selected a suite of software from Equinox Information Systems to enhance its fraud security in all of its markets.

The suite of software includes Protector Deluxe, one of the industry's most widely used fraud detection systems, and ShowCDR Deluxe, a sophisticated call record search utility system. Together, the systems will offer PaeTec a comprehensive view of its network activity so that it can increase efficiency and combat the rising problem of telecommunications fraud.
