The new service gives carriers an additional avenue for negotiating and concluding interconnect agreements with other carriers while taking advantage of B2BSimpleX to reduce the time, expense and delays in negotiating and implementing contracts. In effect, the portal capability enables carriers to build “eco-systems” within the interconnect environment to grow business. In addition, the service, presently available to B2BSimpleX premium-level users, relieves carriers from having to develop their own web site.

“The new portal capabilities provide carriers with the best of both worlds,” said Michael Wallrath, Managing Director, Ascom Systems & Solutions. “The B2BSimpleX platforms’ rich and robust suite of OSS/BSS solutions automate outdated manual processes and enable carriers to optimize and facilitate their interconnect business across all channels, members and non-members alike.”


The B2BSimpleX Exchange Platform was created to be fully compatible with the carrier-led Global Business Exchange for Telecoms (GBET) standard and requirements to automate and simplify the interconnect process. Until now, most contract exchange had been largely dependent on manual processes which are both costly and time consuming, as well as wrought with data entry errors and ambiguities that can delay contract agreements and implementation by weeks or longer. In fact, the Yankee Group estimates that miscommunication and poor or lost data costs European and US carriers more than US $8 billion each year.

Then B2BSimpleX platform enable carriers to exchange and finalize and verify contracts more quickly and with far fewer discrepancies, and includes easy-to-use software modules and workflows that can be used to modify contracts, inform partners about price and destination changes, verify dial code lists and volumes and exchange side letters. Advanced tools include the ability to conduct modeling, ‘what if scenarios,’ analyze contract performance and profitability and prepare financial statements.
