Our editorial mission at TRI is to deliver how-to, industry trend, and case study information of value to a broad range of communications service providers (CSPs) – both network-based and virtual operators. Our stories also help solution providers (software and services) educate the markets they serve.
Our content is delivered through on-line journals that reach particular niches in the communications business. Here they are:
- Black Swan Telecom Journal, since 2012, has been publishing interviews and stories in the telecom operating software and services, particularly in fields such as revenue assurance, fraud management, and analytics.
- Telexchange Journal, since 2014, focuses on wholesale network systems and strategies. We cover issues such as partner management, content delivery, interconnect billing/bi-lateral agreements, and global connectivity.
- Our newest publication, Top Operator Journal, launched in 2016, covers the strategies and solutions of interest to competitive operators in North America, particularly in the ranks of tier 2 and 3 operators plus managed service providers.
TRI also publishes periodic research reports that analyze a particular industry practice, profile key solution players, and predict market forces at play.
