Revector’s SIM Box detection product delivers key benefits:
Revector has an extension to its bypass suite of software for fixed line and mobile operators, that protects call termination revenues from Over The Top (OTT) companies such as Viber and WhatsApp.
Calls, originated as mobile-to-mobile voice calls, are connected within Voice Over IP (VoIP) apps on mobile devices. International calls terminated through VoIP rather than as a direct telephone-to-telephone call. This practice, known as OTT Bypass not only impacts the call quality, but also means users do not have access to standard telephony services such as voicemail and call forwarding. In addition to the issues for consumers, this practice severely impacts the revenues of telecommunications operators that would usually be paid to connect the call.
Protect call termination fees and recover lost revenue with Revector’s OTT detection and elimination service.
Revector’s OTT Bypass solution is:
Calling Line Identity (CLI) spoofing or Caller ID spoofing is a source of many large scams around the world that involve fraudulent activity against consumers, damages corporate reputation and impacts service providers’ revenues.
CLI spoofing allows the scammer to disguise their identity by deliberately changing the telephone number and/or name relayed as the Caller ID information. This enables them to pretend to be the bank, the government, a reputable private company, or a local number.
Service providers are losing out on termination and interconnect revenues from CLI spoofing as international traffic is spoofed to represent cheaper country rates.
Corporate customer call centres have also been abused by CLI Spoofing, where inbound callers pretending to be legitimate consumers have undertaken activities like SIM-Swap fraud and account take-over.
Revector’s CLI Spoofing detection solution is:
The issues are faced by the individual consumer, the phone service provider and the bank, putting huge emphasis on customer care processes, financial compensations and corporate reputation.
European telecom service providers are witnessing traffic outside the EU changing CLI numbers in real-time to mimic preferential rates such as EU-EU tariffs, this means the European telecom service provider receives EU termination rates but in fact it was actually an international call which should be charged at a much higher rate. Call originators are continuously changing the CLI, never using the same CLI twice making it difficult to identify suspicious calls, causing a massive issue for European telecom service providers as millions of Euros is lost in potential in revenue.
