TELSIS UNVEILS REVENUE GENERATION PACKAGE FOR OLOs Wednesday 20 December 2000 PDF Print 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 (www.telsis.com) has sales and support operations in Australia, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Singapore and Spain.
