VIENNA, Va. -- Telarix(tm), the leading innovator in Interconnect Business Optimization (IBO) software for wireline and wireless carriers, today announced that Portugal Telecom has selected its iXTools(tm) software as the end-to-end management and optimization solution for the carrier's interconnect business.

"To continue our success in Portugal and expand globally, we needed a comprehensive interconnect optimization solution which could provide real-time intelligence about the traffic moving across our network as well as provide the analytic tools necessary to detect and correct areas of potential revenue leakage," said José Morais de Oliveira, Director of International Wholesale, Portugal Telecom Communications. "After a thorough evaluation of other available solutions, Telarix was the only company whose solution provided a complete view of our entire interconnection operation and had a proven track record of success implementing and supporting European customers. We look forward to working closely with Telarix as we expand our global capabilities and grow our wholesale business."

One of the key criteria that Portugal Telecom evaluated when selecting Telarix's iXTools software solution was the ability to increase operational efficiencies in the competitive international market while reducing the interconnect complexities resulting from non-standardized numbering plans. Leveraging Telarix's pioneering Vendor Specific Rating (VSR(tm)), Portugal Telecom will be able to calculate the exact termination cost of the traffic based on the vendor's specific number plans and rates. By eliminating blended rates and estimated costs, the carrier has immediate visibility into the actual costs and associated margins of all their complex traffic routes. This unprecedented financial control will allow Portugal Telecom to effectively manage their business while protecting their overall margins-a real advantage in this fiercely competitive marketplace.

Additionally, Portugal Telecom will deploy iXTranslate(tm), the new extension to Telarix's iXRoute(tm) software module. The innovative product extension provides carriers the ability to automatically activate interconnect route guide changes at the switch level, significantly reducing operating costs and increasing network efficiency.

"We are proud to be selected by Portugal Telecom, one of Europe's leading telecom providers, as their interconnect optimization solution provider," said Amir Yazdanpanah, CEO of Telarix. "The deployment of iXTools will provide Portugal Telecom with advanced functionality, superior performance and increased scalability required to meet their growing international wholesale business needs." Telarix's iXTools is a powerful suite of software modules that enables carriers to reduce costs and increase profitability across their interconnect networks. By analyzing both revenue and cost information associated with telecom traffic in near real-time, carriers can optimize network routing and identify capacity opportunities while ensuring that every call is captured, rated and billed accurately. Three of the world's five largest telecom providers depend on iXTools to optimize their interconnect business.
