Nashville, TN - July 29, 2008 - Nashville-based Equinox Information Systems today announced that TeleBarbados, a full-service communications provider based in Barbados, has installed the TeleLink mediation software system. TeleLink integrates with almost all switch types including the MetaSwitch softswitch, which is the primary switch deployed in the TeleBarbados network.
"Equinox is a well-recognized software development firm in the communications industry," noted Michael Lively, Network Engineering Manager of TeleBarbados. "The initial results from installing TeleLink are excellent with simplified billing processes and improved overall efficiency. We look forward to collaborating with Equinox on future software projects."
TeleLink facilitates the delivery of usage records by filtering and converting data to the appropriate formats for operational support systems (OSS), such as billing, fraud detection, and network traffic analysis. For many communication providers, TeleLink replaces previously time-consuming manual processes with an automated process that is not only much faster, but also better ensures the integrity of usage data as it travels from switching platforms to billing and other downstream OSS processes.
"We are pleased that TeleBarbados has chosen to install TeleLink to process its usage and call detail records (CDRs). We look forward to a long and healthy customer relationship," said David West, Equinox Executive Vice President.
Having launched services in June 2006, TeleBarbados Inc. has quickly become the preferred Internet service provider to businesses in Barbados. Supported by the sub-sea cable system, Antilles Crossing, TeleBarbados is able to offer connection speeds previously not seen in the Eastern Caribbean. TeleBarbados continues to launch new services such as VOIP, Ethernet transport and International Private Line over a variety of access platforms including SONET, WiMax, Wireless DOCSIS and WiFi.
