International Voice Traffic Management
Countering International Voice Traffic bypass fraud mechanisms
Bypass fraud mechanisms are used to terminate international calls in local countries by deviating traffic from the legal structures towards interconnected operators. This deviation allows to override the additional fee usually requested by the regulators or the operators for undertaking international communications. These techniques ensure profit for the fraudulent actors and losses for terminating network operators and governments.
Some of these techniques are well known, such as the SIM boxes which consists in deriving international calls through Voice over Internet Protocol and terminating them in a local offline device, but the development and emergence of VoIP possibilities allow the elaboration of other mechanisms. The Over The Top (OTT) fraud, for instance, follows the SIM boxes procedures but allows the call to terminate on the VoIP app directly.
Our International traffic monitoring solutions helps governments, operators and customers in facing this global challenge by controlling and preventing fraudulent practices.
