High-Volume Subscriber Analytics, Billing, and Promotion

Because of the 'big data' nature of the communications industry, IRI's renown CoSort package has long been at the heart of its mission-critical data processing operations.


The Sort Control Language (SortCL) program in CoSort and the modern IRI Voracity platform for data discovery, integration (ETL), migration, governance, and analytics can filter, sort, join, aggregate, PII-mask, and/or reformat call detail records (CDRs) -- in both native ASN.1 and mediated flat-file formats. Please read the 2023 Bloor Research InContext report on telco data processing and the role of IRI Voracity here.


These datasets, along with subscriber and other data, are rapidly processed for billing, analytic, and promotional applications at:

  • landline and mobile phone carriers
  • internet service providers
  • entertainment and hotel patrons
