TNS Expands e-Identity Suite with the Launch of Enhanced Routing
RESTON, Va. --(Business Wire)--
Network Services (NYSE:TNS (News - Alert)) launches a breakthrough intelligent
routing solution called 'Enhanced Routing', a new offering within its
distinctive e-Identity solution suite that excels at lowering operating
costs and resolving routing challenges for carriers.
Offered in a managed services model, the service delivers the
functionality of a first class, Least
Cost Routing (LCR) solution with the benefits of a hosted service.
Integrated with extensive intelligent routing and peering capabilities,
and coupled with next generation connectivity options such as IPX, TNS'
Enhanced Routing is a complete solution unrivalled in the marketplace
With telecommunications carriers facing margin pressures and limited
resources, TNS' Enhanced Routing is an effective tool to not only
significantly reduce long distance costs, but also allow calls to be
handled based on other criteria, like quality of service or bilateral
agreements. The ability to selectively route traffic across multiple
partners gives services providers a competitive edge and improves
Dan Dooley, President of TNS' Telecommunications Services Division,
said: "We're very excited to bring Enhanced Routing to the market
because inefficient routing can be costly for carriers. TNS integrates a
least cost routing engine with additional intelligent routing services
such as Enhanced 8XX, Local Number Portability and Carrier
ENUM, giving carriers access to improved routing and direct peering
with a single query."
Carriers can implement the service without capital expenditure, ongoing
maintenance costs or end-of-life considerations. In fact, the managed
service model allows carriers who previously could not afford LCR
functionality to realize all the benefits of a sophisticated solution.
Furthermore, additional costs to terminate to non-traditional carriers
can be eliminated with the peering and specialized override
functionality which is only available with TNS. This unique automation
of the interconnection process offers efficiency gains while extensive
reporting allows evaluation and insight into areas such as traffic
patterns, identifying and avoiding rate sheet errors, and profitability
Dan Dooley concludes: "The telecommunications marketplace is dynamic,
replete with regulatory change and shifting competitive forces. The TNS
managed service model gives carriers the flexibility and service options
required to remain agile and respond quickly to the changing market. As
traditional long distance services become more mature, we will continue
to develop services that yield margin control and operational
efficiency. Our customers have depended on TNS to route their
communications for many years; now we provide them with the tools to
make real-time routing decisions and manage their interconnection
partners in the most cost-effective manner. This is the core value
behind our e-Identity solution suite."
