FAST Doesn’t Play by the Rules. It Makes Them.
For many years now fraudulent operators have been using sophisticated SIMBOX applications, IMEI schemes and other devises to mask network traffic and chisel carriers out of an estimated US $80+ billion in revenue every year. Unfortunately, legacy systems and software solutions have not been able to prevent illegal traffic from running rampant over networks.
But Axino’s Fraud Management and Revenue Assurance System (FAST) changes the paradigm.
Unlike other solutions that chase after the traffic and fail, FAST combines cutting-edge SVM (Support Vector Machines) Machine Learning (ML) and robust ‘In-Memory’ technologies to identify suspicious traffic patterns and origins at its root -- before revenue-robbing traffic gets downstream. The solution’s breakthrough technology allows carriers to correlate xDR, Aggregated and Subscriber xDRs instantly and apply comprehensive data mining tools to slice and dice call records to identify SMS origins and traffic deviation so that preventative measures can be implemented in real time.
FAST is also a comprehensive solution that not only helps carriers to prevent fraud but comes equipped with extensive billing and data mining tools to free-up back office resources that can be applied to other areas of the business. FAST contains more than 250 predetermined Rules built-in to the solution to detect every possible fraud scenario, including the capability to observe traffic patterns or suspicious network behavior that could read to fraud in real-time.
Rules can be set very easily to quickly compare and verify lists, A-Number, B-Number, IMSI, IMEI, country and so forth. It’s able to detect and stop the most complex SIMBOX scenarios as well as track suspicious traffic, such as high call diversity, unusual usage, SMS, roaming irregularities and calls tied to low tariffs, to name a few – and all in real-time. FAST also enables carriers to block IRSF numbers, PBX hacking and SIM stuffing and create Rules with Boolean Logic to establish new case conditions to keep ahead of any new fraud scenario that might hit their networks.
FAST’s smart assurance functions allow Billing to become a highly efficient front line player. The solution instantly verifies tariffs and ratings, and computes single, daily, weekly and monthly interconnect charges to ensure usage is in line with provisioning. All incoming data, regardless of format or type of switch, is tabulated and corrected, eliminating costly back office manual processes. In addition, FAST provides flexible configuration of multiple streams in order to ‘compare streams,’ such as Switch to Bill and Switch to Prepaid, for instance. Reconciliation reports can be generated and aggregated daily, weekly and monthly, along with automated monitoring to track and ensure compliance.
