Nashville, TN - June 14, 2002 - Nashville-based Equinox Information Systems today announced that Sirius Telecom has purchased its integrated mediation platform. The purchase includes Collector Deluxe and TeleLink. Collector provides real-time delivery of call detail records (CDRs) from telephone switches to a carrier's local area network (LAN). TeleLink facilitates the delivery of CDRs by filtering and converting call data to the appropriate formats for operational support systems (OSS), such as billing, fraud detection, and network traffic analysis.
"Equinox's experience and reputation within the industry made us feel comfortable doing business with them," explained Ken Fabrizio, Vice President of Information Systems & Technology (IS/IT) at Sirius Telecom. "TeleLink not only addresses our mediation needs as they exist now, but also offers functionality that we can grow into as our company matures. Between these two applications, Sirius Telecom has taken a giant leap forward in terms of simplifying our billing processes and improving overall efficiency."
TeleLink addresses a common problem for telecom carriers with multiple OSSes that require different data formats. By applying business rules for filtering and converting CDR data, users can create and forward output files in one or more formats to one or more OSS destinations. In short, the flexible design of the TeleLink system allows users to extend and refine the software to meet their specific data processing goals.
"We are pleased with Sirius Telecom's decision to grow with Equinox," commented Jeremy Landa, who is responsible for business development for Equinox. "This agreement reinforces our commitment to deliver the industry's most competitive mediation platform and supports our goal of becoming a leader in the integration of operational support systems for the telecommunications industry."
