TransNexus Launches Robocall Prevention Capability
That solution, based on the company’s new ClearIP software-as-a-service offering, is called Targeted Pumping fraud detecting. TransNexus created it in collaboration with service provider EvComm.
“Robocalls don’t just annoy and defraud subscribers,” said TransNexus CEO Jim Dalton (News - Alert). “They can also disrupt a carrier’s network. Working with EvComm, we designed a targeted-pumping call detection feature that gives telecom service providers, either wholesale or retail, greater flexibility and precision to assign these controls to specific subsets of their network. We’re pleased to help our customers with this powerful new feature, so they can continue to provide the reliable, trouble-free service that their customers expect.”
Jay Cox (News - Alert), transport director with EvComm, added: “We found that robocalling traffic was disrupting performance in our telecom network. The robocall and fraud prevention technology in ClearIP helps us block these calls. As a wholesale telecom service provider, however, we needed additional controls to apply the service within in our network. TransNexus added a targeted-pumping call detection method to ClearIP that gives us exactly what we need to detect and prevent these calls to specific subsets of our network based upon both origin and destination.”
Last year TransNexus talked about how call authentication can aid in blocking unwanted calls and lessening the impact of caller scams. It noted the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions had erected a Robocalling Testbed, hosted by the Neustar Trust Lab, to advance such work. It helps validate industry standards supported by the Industry Robocall Strike Force, which the Federal Communications Commission established in 2016.
TransNexus last year completed testing at that lab. It said that proves the effectiveness of, and its interoperability with, caller authentication standards.
