Meucci Solutions and Telarix Partner to Provide Carriers with
Real-Time CLI & Quality Monitoring Solution
Integrated Solution Leverages Real-Time CLI and QoS testing So Carriers Can Select Routes With Verified Service Quality
GHENT, BELGIUM and VIENNA, VA - USA — January 21, 2009— Meucci Solutions NV, the leader in roaming and interconnect monitoring solutions, and Telarix, Inc., the leading provider of business information exchange and interconnect OSS/BSS solutions for content providers, IP service providers and global fixed and mobile operators today announced that they are partnering to provide international carriers a comprehensive solution to monitor, test and analyze roaming, interconnection and fraud on their global routes.
On a daily basis, mobile, fixed and VoIP carriers are faced with numerous routing, service and cost alternatives to terminate traffic. As more carriers differentiate their international service based on quality, they require a robust solution which can ensure their partners are providing the highest level of service, including Calling Line Identification (CLI). CLI has become an essential feature in mobile communications and one that has a direct impact on a carrier’s revenue stream. Studies have shown increased call answer frequency when CLI is delivered to the terminating handset.
Meucci Solutions, which is well known for its interconnect testing and QoS services for leading global operators, has demonstrated the technical strength of its test network by detecting over 625,000 unique SIMs in SIM boxes in 2008. The integrated solution by Meucci Solutions and Telarix enables carriers to measure the CLI delivery in a statistically valid and cost-effective manner. By continuously monitoring and verifying CLI delivery on each global route in real-time, carriers can now react quickly to changing quality conditions and financially optimize their network routing.
“Telarix’s partnership with Meucci Solutions is uniquely tailored to address the dynamic business demands associated with managing a carrier’s international business,” said Shawn Zargham, CTO of Telarix. “By combining Telarix’s next generation business information exchange and interconnect OSS/BSS solutions with Meucci Solutions’ Global Monitoring and Testing Platform, international carriers now have a cost effective tool to optimize routing while ensuring their customers receive the highest quality of service available.”
“If you are not performing a statistically significant volume of peak and off-peak test calls, you may be making a routing decision based on obsolete, inaccurate data,” said Conrad Tuytte, CEO of Meucci Solutions. “This integrated solution is essential for carriers that seek to deliver high CLI quality at the best available cost and want to make daily routing decisions with confidence.”
