Arbinet-thexchange Partners with Architel to Automate Traffic Flow Between Carriers
NEW YORK – August 09, 2000 – Arbinet-thexchange, the full service trading solution for buyers and sellers of telephony bandwidth, today announced the completion of a project with Architel that links thexchange’s web interface with its Global Delivery Platform switching equipment to allow thexchange to automatically route and deliver traffic based on member buy and sell orders.
Architel’s carrier-grade ASAP service activation solution, custom-configured to thexchange’s unique needs, is integrated into a groundbreaking application that uses trading data generated on an online marketplace to load thexchange’s Nortel DMS-GSP switch to provide dynamic traffic delivery for members. Thexchange is also deploying Architel’s OMS for back office provisioning process control and its Objectel solution to manage network inventory functions.
“Architel’s suite of provisioning software sets the standard for Tier 1 carrier implementations, and assures that our members’ trades are reliably delivered in real-time by our Global Delivery Platform,” said Anthony L. Craig, Arbinet-thexchange chairman and CEO. “What’s unique about this application is that we automate service provisioning between carriers, and to date these applications have only been applied within a carrier’s own network. This allows our automated, full-service solution to provide a more efficient means of managing the trading of telephony bandwidth between our members.”
“We are excited to have partnered with thexchange to develop this solution. We believe that this type of automated provisioning between carriers points to the future of commerce between facilities operators in this industry,” said Stewart Griffith, President of Architel.
Arbinet-thexchange is the full-service, online exchange for on-demand transactions,
automated physical delivery and settlement of trades of telephony bandwidth. Thexchange
is neutral, favoring neither buyers nor sellers, and allows participants to trade anonymously.
Automated delivery is accomplished by employing advanced trading software and a set of
patented processes to link the web-based trading platform with carrier-grade
telecommunications switching equipment. Arbinet-thexchange handles all invoicing,
collection and payment for trades effected on its exchange and provides continuous
monitoring and online rating of the service quality of each seller’ s network. For more
