Uniquely, Revector’s solution enables operators to protect call termination revenues against OTT service providers

• Roaming Consulting Company lists Revector as leading SIM Box detection company

• Revector driving innovation with the first Over The Top detection and elimination services to protect operator revenues

Mobile anti-fraud and revenue protection specialist Revector has been named by Roaming Consulting Company (ROCCO) as one of the leading suppliers of SIM Box detection equipment and services in its SIM Box detection vendor performance report 2015, which was conducted between April and July.

SIM Box fraud takes place when individuals or organisations buy thousands of SIM cards offering free or low cost calls. The SIM cards are then used to illicitly terminate calls, channelling national or international calls away from mobile network operators, costing global revenue loss of more than $3 billion per year (source CFCA).

Revector’s Queen’s Award for Enterprise winning SIM Box anti-fraud software enables mobile network operators to identify that SIM Box fraud is taking place on their network and enables fraudulent SIM cards to be disabled by the operator.

Andy Gent, CEO and Founder of Revector comments: “SIM Box fraud costs operators billions in lost revenues every year, reducing shareholder value and causing customer complaints. Revector has now provided its services in more than 100 countries around the world and is the only vendor that provides a full range of services to detect and eliminate all types of bypass.”

Revector is now supplying the first proven solution for detection and elimination of revenue bypass by Over The Top (OTT) service providers. Many fixed and mobile operators are seeing monthly double digit percentage reductions in call termination revenues, as OTT providers aggressively target call termination charges as a revenue generator. Uniquely, Revector’s solution enables operators to protect call termination revenues against OTT service providers.

Gent continues, “Service providers face new threats to revenue all the time. Fair competition from OTT apps and services is one thing, but when OTT service providers proactively target termination revenues, operators need to be able to protect their investment in infrastructure that is increasingly relied on by users. Revector helps operators protect revenues that can be invested in better services for all network users.”
