Talk To Me


Intercarrier business information exchange for most of the history of telecommunications has involved mixed messages, delayed billing, dial routing, complex rate schedules and settlements generally involving copious amounts of alcohol. A trend we have been following for some time is the ‘neutral broker’ model for data interchange between Carriers.

One company, iXLink, a creation of Telarix, Inc. has been on the scene for just over a year. In July of this year they ground out their one-millionth transaction and have been generating a lot of press lately. It’s an interesting BSS model that has compelling economic opportunities (we think). The company claims that more than 150 carriers worldwide are now using iXLink. A remarkable feat given the short time they have been in business.

A couple of suggestions to iXLink; 1) Your website is impenetrable - could you give us OSS/BSS dweebs a bit more info? and 2) Ever think about a broader market of interaction? Huge numbers of smaller players need to talk to those 150 you have on board, but might like a pay-as-you-go model?
