FraudTec II

Losses due to wireless fraud are often a mobile operator’s greatest expense. Mobile operators need an effective tool to help their analysts monitor, detect, and stop wireless fraud on a near real-time basis.

How FraudTec ll Works

FraudTec ll receives roaming Call Detail Record (CDR) or usage records from network elements and home CDR from switch feeds, then uses these records to create a database of subscriber calling activity. As the database continually updates, FraudTec ll performs call detail record analysis on an ongoing basis to check or conditions that may indicate fraudulent usage. When one or more conditions arise, FraudTec ll generates an alarm. Analysts investigate the alarm and, if fraud is confirmed, take action to stop fraud as it occurs. The system offers a comprehensive suite of alarm management tools, such as alarm generation, usage threshold management, and call detail analysis to support near real-time wireless fraud analysis and detection.

A helping hand

FraudTec ll offers a number of boilerplate defaults based on years of experience and expertise, including readily re-configured fraud detection available, if an operator is unsure of their initial set-up needs. These defaults can be changed at any time by contacting your TNS Application Support Specialist.
