New Delhi: UK-based Telesoft Technologies, which manufactures equipment for monitoring fixed and mobile telephony networks, will launch a solution in the country to help telecom companies pin down frauds in their networks.
“We are in talks with clients to provide the telecom operators passive monitoring probe,” Telesoft Technologies director, sales and marketing, Andy Evripides said.
The probe solution can be connected to any mobile network and it provides the signaling information related to location of a subscriber within 100-500 meters.
Besides, the company plans to invest £2-3 million over a couple of years to customise their products for the Indian market.
“We expect in two years the revenue from our India operations will double the European operations. To fuel the growth we will continue investing in India,” he said.
The actual location-based applications are provided by SIs and OEMs, who access the information using Telesoft’s probe technology.
Typical applications include directing mobile subscribers to the nearest cash machine or providing weather report of a geographic area.
The solution can help in fraud detection in telephony networks such as finding spoof numbers that cannot be billed and network abuse.
The signaling information in a mobile network contains location information such as cell ID and area information that allows location-based services.
