Equinox Expands Product Line to Include Solutions for the Lucent 5ESS, Siemens EWSD, and Nortel DMS-10 Switches

NASHVILLE, TN — October 2, 2000 — Nashville-based Equinox Information Systems, a provider of telecom software solutions, today announced that it has extended its telecom fraud management, mediation, CDR & switch administration, and network analysis software product lines to include service to carriers with Lucent 5ESS, Siemens EWSD, and Nortel DMS-10 switches.

Addressing the needs of facilities-based carriers that have a growing number of multiple switch types, the advancements offer carriers an all-in-one vendor for their network management needs. In addition, carriers providing both local and long-distance service on switches such as the Lucent 5ESS or other switches using a BAMA formatted record now have a wider range of Equinox applications available to help their networks run more efficiently.

"Providing the industry’s fullest range of software solutions has been an Equinox cornerstone since we began developing software in 1986," commented David West, Executive Vice President of Equinox. "Expanding our line of products for the 5ESS, EWSD, and DMS-10 switches is a natural step in our goal of providing the most complete line of powerful, cost-effective software for all carriers—regardless of their network size, type, or switch platform."

The product line expansion includes Protector, a telecom fraud management system that utilizes rules- and profiles-based technology to distinguish fraud from honest usage; Manager, a traffic analysis system that gives carriers advanced tools to summarize complex traffic patterns and data; ShowCDR, a sophisticated tool allowing carriers to view, search, and report call records from their desktop PCs; TeleScope, a real-time financial and traffic analysis system that enables network operators to make intelligent network management decisions by providing critical information about completion rates and margins in real-time; and Collector, a system which provides carriers real-time delivery of billing records from their switch to their LAN.

Equinox provides over 1,000 software licenses to carriers worldwide for fraud management, mediation, CDR & switch administration, and mediation to service their various switch types, including Alcatel, Nortel DMS-500, Siemens DCO, Harris, Glenayre, Ericsson, and Nortel MTX cellular.
