VIENNA, Va. and HONOLULU, Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Telarix, Inc., the
leading innovator of Interconnect Business Optimization solutions, today
announced the successful implementation of its iXTools software platform at
KDDI Corporation, one of Japan's largest telecommunications carriers. KDDI
selected iXTools to help the company streamline its interconnect business and
automate KDDI's routing and dial digit management processes while enhancing
the operational efficiency of its global network.
KDDI uses iXTools to support its dial-code management procedures.
Traditionally, interconnect carriers conduct business by exchanging rates to
terminate calls in specific geographic locations based on the dial-codes used
to reach those locations. Because no single standard for international
numbering plans exists, each carrier has had to create its own internal dial-
codes for the thousands of geographic locations around the world.
Today's carriers typically have partnerships with between 40 to 100
different carriers, making management of the dial-codes for each partner's
traffic, and the related rates to exchange calls through those partner
networks, a highly complex task. Telarix's iXTools is helping KDDI to
automate and streamline its routing processes by providing current and
accurate information on network costs, revenues, pricing and billing for every
The implementation of Telarix's iXTools is also helping KDDI's network
managers better track monthly traffic on their network, which allows KDDI to
more accurately estimate end-of-month invoices and inter-carrier payments.
Telarix's software solution provides detailed data that enables KDDI to manage
invoice reconciliations should they arise. With increased visibility into its
network and a precise accounting of each call on its network, KDDI's business
and operations managers can ensure that margins are optimized through
operational efficiency and accuracy.
"The technology behind iXTools offers a powerful solution with a high
degree of functionality and a user-friendly interface," said Yasuyuki Koide,
director and general manager of KDDI's carrier business department.
"Telarix's iXTools allows us to make intelligent business decisions based on
near real-time data from our network. The fact that this project was
completed on time, within budget and without disruption to normal operations
is a testament to the expertise and cooperation of the Telarix and KDDI teams
and this high-quality software solution."
"Carriers need accurate data to help them better plan and execute their
interconnect businesses," explained Amir Yazdanpanah, CEO of Telarix. "The
success of this implementation was made possible by the dedication and true
partnership spirit of both teams. Telarix looks forward to continued
cooperation with KDDI to provide solutions that further impact its bottom
