TransNexus celebrates 15-Year anniversary

This month TransNexus is proud to be celebrating 15 years of business, providing quality VoIP network management solutions.

TransNexus has been a pioneer in operations support system (OSS) software for VoIP networks since 1997. TransNexus got its start when it partnered with Cisco and 3Com to develop the Open Settlement Protocol (OSP) with the European Telecommunications Standards Institute.

OSP is an XML-based standard for VoIP routing discovery and accounting. Adoption of the OSP protocol continues to grow and the OSP Toolkit project is supported by a variety of open source SIP projects, such as Asterisk, FreeSWITCH, Kamailio, OpenSIPS, and SIP Router.

In 1999, TransNexus became the first company to offer secure peer-to-peer VoIP clearinghouse services. Its ClearIP service operated as trusted certificate authority for secure routing authorization and accounting of direct VoIP peering among Internet Telephony Service Providers.

In 2001, in response to encouragement from major customers, TransNexus changed its business model from a service provider to a developer of software products for wholesale VoIP carriers. As a software development company, TransNexus is focused on delivering innovative new features to the rapidly changing IP communications market.

“Customers found TransNexus because they needed solutions for their VoIP network that did not exist,” said Jim Dalton, CEO and founder of TransNexus. “Keeping up with new customer requirements is our biggest challenge and the best part of our job.”

As an innovator in the field of VoIP peering, TransNexus has been awarded fourteen patents for unique features offered by the TransNexus software. Dalton attributes his company’s longstanding success to a combination of innovation and customer service. According to Dalton, “Customer service is our first business goal. We start every business relationship with a free evaluation trial that includes solution design, implementation and training. We want our customers fully satisfied with the TransNexus solution in production before they have to commit to purchase.”

Going forward, TransNexus will continue to focus on bringing new VoIP solutions to the market. Recent developments include telecom fraud detection, Quality of Service routing and alerts, and an upcoming new release of the freely available OSPrey-32 routing server.

“We think the industry is on the verge of creating new business models that will drive adoption of fresh services, such as high definition audio and video services,” said Dalton. “We are eager to provide the software that will enable those new business models.”
