Troy Cable Boosts Profits from its MetaSwitch Deployment with TransNexus Least Cost Routing, Traffic Reporting and Profit Analysis Platform

Share Article

Troy Cable realized an immediate investment payback from the TransNexus least cost routing platform it deployed with its MetaSwitch.

Troy Cable's tagline, "Your Hometown Communications Company" is a claim few other service providers can match. Troy Cable serves southern Alabama and provides more than just cable services to its customers. In addition to a full suite of communications services, such as Internet, phone, security and medical alarm services, the Troy Cable web site serves as a community bulletin board for public announcements ranging from local music events to stolen livestock.

To be the trusted provider of a wide range of communication services, Troy Cable relies on MetaSwitch to power its residential and business voice network. Using the MetaSwitch VP3510 Integrated Softswitch, which combines application server, session control and media gateway functionality, Troy Cable can provide its full suite of services from a single platform - simplifying operations and reducing costs. To further streamline its network, and minimize its costs to provide long distance telephone services, Troy Cable relies on TransNexus, a Partner Certified OSS/Network Management vendor in the MetaSwitch Partner Program.

The TransNexus NexOSS platform provides a complete Least Cost Routing solution for inter-state, intra-state and local calling. In addition, the TransNexus solution also provides near real time traffic reports and profitability analysis by customer, provider, route and time of day. "I liked the TransNexus solution because it is easy to install and maintain. I never have to think about our least cost routing and reporting platform - it just works," says Ken Jordan, Head Engineer of Troy Cable. He adds, "more importantly, my CFO likes the TransNexus software because the money it saved us during the free 90 day trial was more than enough to pay for the project. Not many network projects can claim that success." The TransNexus solution fits into the MetaSwitch architecture as an adjunct routing and reporting server which is simple to install and easy to maintain.
