VIENNA, Va., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Telarix, Inc., the leading provider of Interconnect Business Optimization software, today announced an agreement with Telefonica Deutschland GmbH to implement Telarix's iXTools to provide traffic, revenue and cost visibility, and to support the trading and routing processes for Telefonica's Germany-based interconnect voice operations. The implementation will allow Telefonica Deutschland GmbH to grow its emerging interconnect voice business, providing insight into voice traffic and financial data for the carrier. Telefonica Deutschland GmbH is a subsidiary of international telecom service provider, Telefonica International Wholesale Services, and is the first Telefonica group member to choose Telarix. Telefonica International Wholesale Services selected Telarix's iXTools to enable a real-time view of its German and UK networks and to better monitor its interconnect agreements with international telecom carriers. The company selected Telarix among several other vendors because of the flexibility and functionality of its solution. In addition, Telarix was selected for its ability to provide local and global support, and to deploy quickly within Telefonica Deutschland's networks. With global interconnect voice activity on the rise, the need for streamlined methods to reduce costs and lower the risk of lost revenue is high. iXTools will provide round-the-clock visibility into Telefonica Deutschland's networks and the ability to analyze risks and rewards when dealing with telecommunications carriers. "We were impressed by Telarix's ability to respond to our need for rapid implementation and to provide an end-to-end solution at the same time," said Susana Calvo Redondo, director of international carrier services for Telefonica Deutschland GmbH. "By having a high-quality solution, we are confident we will create operational efficiencies and have detailed visibility throughout our organization. This type of business intelligence is invaluable as we work to expand Telefonica Deutschland's international wholesale business. We hope to broaden our partnership with Telarix within Telefonica International Wholesale Services." The traditional method of manually inputting routing and rate changes can take a carrier days or even weeks to compile and analyze the data. iXTools streamlines the rate, dial code, and routing management processes. In addition, it also provides a business intelligence and analytics platform that enables carriers to make better and timelier business decisions. "Our success is measured by our client's ability to improve its profitability," stated Amir Yazdanpanah, CEO for Telarix. "Telefonica Deutschland looked to Telarix to provide a solution that allows them to analyze financial and interconnect data that will be crucial in managing their voice operations. We are pleased we were able to quickly deliver a cutting- edge solution that will be a key element to their long-term success."
