Nex-Tech Wireless Licenses Mediation Software From Equinox Information Systems

COLLECTOR & TELELINK INTEGRATE WITH 5ESS SWITCH TO PROCESS USAGE RECORDS

Nashville, TN November 1, 2005 - Nashville-based Equinox Information Systems today announced that Nex-Tech Wireless, a premier wireless provider in central and western Kansas, and eastern Colorado, has licensed Collector and TeleLink mediation software applications. The two applications will integrate with Nex-Tech Wireless' Lucent 5ESS communications switch.

Collector allows carriers to assimilate usage records in real-time from multiple network points. The software supports multiple switch types using standard communication protocols, such as X.25, TCP/IP, and FTP. TeleLink complements Collector by filtering and converting switch data to the appropriate data format in preparation for import into operational support systems (OSS).

"The Equinox mediation platform will save Nex-Tech Wireless a tremendous amount of employee time and money," said Jeff Dear, Billing Supervisor at Nex-Tech Wireless. "The ability to automatically convert usage data from the switch to EMI and CIBER data formats means we can perform billing and customer service processes in a faster and more error-free fashion."

"We are excited to add Nex-Tech Wireless to our client base," noted David West, Equinox Executive Vice President. "TeleLink and Collector represent the industry's most comprehensive mediation platform. We look forward to providing Nex-Tech Wireless with additional best-of-breed software in the future."
