The XINTEC Revenue Assurance solution is designed for flexibility and speed of implementation. And a sensible price tag.
The solution provides a set of collection, reconciliation and reporting features, accessible through a smart and intuitive dashboard.
The system works by analysing and reconciling event detail records (eDRs) from various network sources (GSM, GPRS, Prepaid, Roaming, Interconnect, Billing, Mediation, etc) to identify, monitor and correlate the root causes of revenue leakage.
The software is typically deployed in predefined stages, as a range of easy-to-install modules requiring only light-touch integration.
SIM Box Detection
Our fraud management system enables easy access to real-time information on how end customers are using services on an operator’s network, or roaming partner’s network.
Any suspicious or potentially fraudulent activity can be instantly identified and brought under control so that financial losses are averted.
By automating the fraud detection process, and implementing a mix of standard and custom policies, rules, and thresholds, the work of the analyst is greatly simplified so that he or she can concentrate on solving only the most complex cases.
Our pay-as-you-go approach is one of the key benefits of our smart technology, as it gives an operator the flexibility to pick and choose from a selection of detection modules, and to deploy them only when they are needed.
This effectively provides the operator with a bespoke fraud management system built around their specific needs.
Fraud modules tailored to specific fraud types allows for faster deployments and more focused functionality over configuring general purpose fraud engines. The following modules are available: IRSF, Wangiri, SIM Box, SMS/MMS/Voice Spamming and Prepaid. Point-of-Sale Fraud & Credit Analysis (Subscription Fraud) and RA Reconciliations are offered as separate products.
FMSevolution – roaming module is a specific package of complementary detection techniques
and IRSF test numbers to directly target IRSF throughout the telecoms industry. Just some of the instant benefits include:
The IRSF module covers roaming and on-net traffic. If desired, IRSF can be supplied as a Roaming Module, which combines the lightweight core, NRTRDE & TAP decoders and IRSF module. The Roaming Module requires minimal configuration and can be deployed in a matter of hours (hosted) or days (in-situ deployment).
The IRSF module uses several complimentary techniques to identify classic IRSF and Package Abuse (aka trickle IRSF). The key element of the IRSF package is a collection of Xintec managed number databases. These databases provide more than 2,000,000 test call numbers, unallocated number ranges, high risk ranges and high cost ranges as well as a number validation database.
Subscribers and destination ranges are profiled and combined with overlapping call analysis and behavioral change analysis to identify indicators of IRSF. The number databases determine the quality of alarms to distinguish between obvious fraud, likely fraud and false alarms.
A catch-all analysis of destination ranges using anomaly detection through time series decomposition ensures cases do not slip through
the net. This analysis is also useful for identifying quality issues.
The Wangiri module applies similar techniques as IRSF but reverses the analysis roles (IRSF is an outbound fraud, Wangiri is inbound). to on-net subscribers. The Wangiri module is analyses only on-net subscribers. The analysis techniques differ according to the available data, either analyzing
inbound calls (if unanswered calls are available) or outbound calls. Note: the detection quality is unaltered by the call types analysed, but using inbound calls provides for faster detection.
The pattern analyser matches subscriber behaviour against configurable patterns. Each pattern is a collection of characteristics (e.g. diversity, average durations, counts, cell movement, etc) and associated values. Several patterns are defined to account for the differing behaviour attributed to on-net, national roaming, roaming and external subscribers.
Correlation detection correlates roaming data with MSC traffic to identify inconsistencies between a roaming MOC CDR to an on-net subscriber and the corresponding MSC CDR.
