Nashville-based Equinox Information Systems (Booth 718) has announced that Onvoy, an independent LEC based in Minneapolis, has licensed and installed the TeleLink mediation software system.
TeleLink integrates with Lucent Technologies Inc.s Plexus 9000 multiservice access switch and Nortel Networks DMS 100/200 switch, which are the two primary switch types deployed in the Onvoy network. Onvoy offers network services, voice, video conferencing, data and Internet solutions to wholesale and retail market segments serving more than 350 communities in Minnesota and beyond.
Equinox is a trusted partner for software development in the communications industry, said Mike Yoder, system development and support manager for Onvoy. The early results from installing TeleLink are outstanding: simplified billing processes and improved overall efficiency. We look forward to collaborating with Equinox on future software development projects.
TeleLink facilitates the delivery of usage records by filtering and converting data to the appropriate formats for 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 Onvoy has chosen to install TeleLink to process its usage records and call detail records, and we look forward to a long customer relationship, said David West, Equinox executive vice president.
