Alvand Communications is managed by Alex Jennings. Alex has over twenty five years’ experience in the telecoms sector and has worked across Europe on a variety of telecom projects in that time. Her early career focused on interconnect billing and wholesale, starting initially with interconnect billing in the Wholesale Department at Telewest in 1993, where she gained a strong background in cable networks, regulation and commercial negotiations. Her initial responsibility for interconnect billing steadily grew, as a Wholesale Account Manager, to include leased lines and mobile interconnects.
Alex has worked as an independent consultant since 1999 covering regulatory and commercial interconnect issues for a range of clients including Tiscali, Telewest, Energis, Orange, together with various start-up cable and internet/VoIP companies. Much of her client work has focused on interconnection (in particular commercial agreements) and regulatory compliance, advising communications providers on regulatory developments in the market and how these might impact on their business.
She has been heavily involved in preparing responses to industry consultations and market reviews (i.e. Simplifying Non-Geographic Numbers, the Narrowband Market Review and the Business Connectivity Market Review). She also wrote the first NGA Open Access interconnect agreement in the UK.
More recently, she has been focused on advising clients on the regulatory and technical issues surrounding PSTN to IP transition.
