Mobile data traffic growth is not in line with the growth in revenue as traffic continues its sustained growth while revenues remain fairly flat. Price erosion is one of the biggest contributing factors to this but lately the amount of data fraud in mobile networks has been increasing as well. Today, data fraud already accounts for an alarming 1-2% of mobile data revenue.
OTT applications are a common source of data fraud. Different OTT apps can exploit data channels for various fraudulent activities such as international voice call termination. This causes a drainage of terminated minutes and revenue loss for the MNO.
Instant implementation of Mobik’s leading market solution OTT Guard resulted in an immediate detection and consequent blocking of fraudulent international voice calls. Our solution successfully detected voice calls that were terminated to the end subscriber over an OTT application therefore bypassing legit wholesale interconnection channels of the MNO.
