Nashville, TN - June 7, 2002 - Nashville-based Equinox Information Systems today announced that NTS Communications, Inc. has deployed Manager, a network management system for telecom carriers. The software was deployed across a five-switch network and complements their previously installed Equinox applications for real-time call detail record (CDR) collection, viewing, and searching.
"We chose Equinox due to their flexibility and commitment to meeting our needs," stated Don Sarchet, Vice President - CLEC Services of NTS Communications. "In response to our feedback, Equinox added new reports and created a customized utility to meet our specific requirements. Their willingness to tailor their software applications to our specifications was a big factor in the decision-making process."
Manager, an advanced traffic analysis system, helps carriers document network performance and activity in detail by analyzing actual call records to provide information unavailable from switch statistics. Using unfiltered billing records as source data, Manager enables carriers to effectively manage reseller accounts, verify routing and billing, and reduce losses through better network planning. With over 30 reports, easy-to-read summaries, and unparalleled network flexibility, Manager is a tremendous cost-defense mechanism for carriers in the competitive telecommunications industry.
"More and more carriers are dedicating resources to thoroughly audit the access bills they receive from the Local Exchange Carriers (LECs)," noted Jeremy Landa, who is responsible for North American business development for Equinox. "We are excited that NTS has selected Equinox to assist them in this important auditing process, and we look forward to working with NTS for many years."
