New licensed operators now have a quick, simple and low-cost route
to the provision of intelligent network services - a plug-and-play
revenue generation kit in a box.

British carrier-grade network infrastructure vendor Telsis today
unveils Ocean fastStart - an all inclusive offering of dual
redundant IN platforms and three core services: Indirect Access,
Least-Cost Routing and Number Translation.

The fastStart package can be combined with any one of the Telsis
range of Ocean switches, dependent on projected call volumes and
type of services to be rolled out, providing everything the
operator needs for fast set-up and operation.

One of the key sales channels for fastStart will be BT Wholesale,
as part of the ongoing partnership programme between the two
companies in the UK. BT Wholesale Markets managing director Stuart
Horwood commented: "This is another example of how we are
listening to our customers and working together with Telsis to
develop business solutions to get them up and running and
generating revenue quickly."

Telsis business development director, John Sinden, added:
"fastStart includes everything OLOs need to get operational -
supremely scaleable, carrier-grade hardware pre-programmed with
three of the most popular services, plus our intuitive visual
programming environment to make the development and roll-out of
further services quick and easy."

The Single Stage Indirect Access service enables OLOs to offer
1XXX, or IDA, services by performing a CLI (Calling Line Identity)
check to ensure all calls can be billed.

The Least-Cost Routing service ensures that calls are always
switched via the lowest-cost path to the required destination,
protecting profitability.

The Number Translation service lets OLOs provide non-geographic
numbering services such as freephone, local, national and premium
rate calls.

The IN hardware comprises a pair of fastSCP programmable service
control points which support 5,000 different services and can
handle up to 1,000 transactions per second.

All Telsis switches support SS7 and ISDN signalling, provide from
16 up to 256 E1 trunks (up to 7,680 non-blocking ports) and
include optional integral announcement and DTMF detection for core
IVR functionality.

Fundamentally fault-tolerant for high availability, the powerful
hardware combination also has a uniquely small footprint,
occupying just one or two equipment racks, depending upon the type
of switch chosen.

Telsis high-performance carrier-grade switching solutions are
already in use around the world with major incumbents, mobile
operators and over 20 new entrants, who have installed capacity
ranging from 16 to over 500 E1s per site.

The company's family of products includes the Ocean range of
programmable platforms, which enables network operators to quickly
develop and implement advanced network services for competitive
advantage. With its headquarters, research and production site in
the UK, Telsis ( has sales and support operations
in Australia, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Singapore
and Spain.
