Telarix, Inc., a provider of Interconnect Business Optimization (IBO) and settlement solutions for content providers, IP service providers and global fixed and mobile operators, today announced a new corporate strategy designed to combine its award winning interconnect business optimization and settlement solutions with a service-focused offering to provide the industry’s most comprehensive solution — uniquely tailored to address service providers’ most critical business issues.
As part of the new strategy, Telarix will offer its interconnect business optimization and settlement solutions over a Flexible Delivery Platform, which includes a new hosted offering called iXTools ASP(TM). Now carriers can choose either an outsourced, hosted or traditional software license solution to improve revenue assurance, optimize routing, manage complex agreements and facilitate financial traffic management.
“Offering a solution such as this in both a software-based and a services-based model helps tailor the end product to meet a carrier’s exact needs,” commented Paul Hughes, Vice President of Communications Software Strategies with the Yankee Group. “Telarix’s Flexible Delivery Platform strategy demonstrates the company’s commitment to meeting global communications carriers’ specific OSS/BSS strategies, each of which may differ based on past investment history and technology acquisition and usage preferences, and bolsters the company’s position in the global OSS/BSS space.”
This unprecedented offering provides traditional global incumbents, emerging service providers, and dominant regional players of fixed, mobile and VoIP services a comprehensive solution tailored to their specific business environment and requirements. Three of the world’s five largest telecom providers already depend on iXTools to optimize their interconnect business.
Telarix is also dedicating substantial research and development resources to maintain its leadership in delivering the industry’s most innovative interconnect solutions, including those specifically designed to address the challenges associated Next Generation Networks. The company recently announced the availability of iXBill(TM), a robust and highly flexible interconnect billing system that allows carriers to eliminate revenue leakage by supporting interconnect agreements with other carriers, regardless of the level of complexity and the type of network. In addition, Telarix extended the flexibility of iXTools with support on Oracle Real Application Clusters 10g, enabling carriers to leverage all the benefits of the industry’s leading interconnect solution regardless of their operating environment and database platform. Telarix’s commitment to product innovation was recognized this month by TeleStrategies, publisher of Billing World & OSS Today magazine, when it announced that Telarix was a finalist in the Achievement in Innovation and Customer Success Story categories for its Sixth Annual Excellence Awards.
To maintain its proven track record of 100% on-time, on-budget implementations and superior customer care, Telarix is further enhancing its Professional Service and Customer Support organizations to offer the breadth and depth of technical expertise required to meet the specific business needs of each individual service provider, regardless of size or location. Staffed by subject matter experts with extensive knowledge and experience in routing optimization, interconnect management and revenue assurance, these organizations can tailor a solution to meet each service provider’s unique operating environment- ensuring the entire interconnect business is optimized for maximum performance and profitability. Finally, Telarix will leverage partnerships with other industry leaders and regional experts to offer service providers the most comprehensive, world-class solution that can be implemented globally and supported locally.
“The tremendous growth in wireless content and migration to IP centric networks is presenting service providers with a number of challenges including effective management of interconnect agreements as well as the ability to quickly and efficiently bill and collect payments from multiple partners,” said Don Lynch, CEO of Telarix. “The company’s state-of-the-art technology and extensive expertise in the international interconnect carrier and OSS/BSS software markets makes Telarix uniquely positioned to offer service providers value-added solutions that not only address today’s demands but are flexible enough to meet tomorrow’s challenges.
