Subex Azure, a leading global provider of OSS solutions for telecom operators, today announced it is deploying its Fraud Management bureau for Melita Cable, Malta's primary cable television and internet service provider.
Melita is the first 'triple-play' (internet, TV and telephony) operator in Malta, providing services to more than 100,000 subscribers. As the company and its number of services continue to grow, Melita is keen to ensure that it is protecting its revenues effectively.
Subex Azure was chosen after impressing Melita with its Fraud Management bureau implementation at UPC (United Pan-European Communications). The bureau is a unique offering in the revenue maximization space and is ideal for growing operators as it provides them with leading-edge fraud management capability without large up-front costs.
The Subex Azure Fraud Management bureau uses flexible rules-based alarms and fingerprint pattern matching to identify likely fraudulent usage, enabling operators to detect known fraud types and patterns of unusual behaviour in all telecoms environments - wireline (PSTN, ISP, VOIP), wireless (2G, 2.5G, 3G) and across all services (postpaid, prepaid, VAS, MMS, m-commerce).
George Galea, Manager of IT and Data Services, Melita Cable, said: "We have chosen Subex Azure's Fraud Management bureau as it is a cost-effective and scaleable solution that can grow in line with our subscriber and network traffic volume. By ensuring we are protecting our revenues we can continue to offer innovative communication services to our customers."
Saul Nurtman, President EMEA, Subex Azure Limited, said: "We are delighted to be working with Melita Cable. This is a great example of how our bureau service can provide smaller growing operators with world-class fraud management capability without the pressures of large capital and operational expenditure."
