[UKPRwire, Fri Jul 06 2007] Openmind Networks, a global pioneer of messaging router solutions today announced that they have released the latest version of Protect for the mobile wholesale carrier community.
“With Protect’s ability to block and filter spam Openmind Networks is demonstrating its leadership in the wholesale carrier space,” said Alex Duncan, CEO, Openmind Networks. “We are the only company that has developed and deployed next generation messaging products that deliver compelling value to the wholesale carrier market.”
Protect which is already deployed in four continents filters out undesirable messages that seek to attack or defraud subscribers or network infrastructures, and underpins revenue assurance initiatives to prevent leakage. The system stops spoofed and faked messages that are impossible to bill, ensuring that network bandwidth is freed up for revenue generating traffic. As many fraud threats originate outside of the home network, wholesale operators can use Protect to intercept mobile terminating traffic entering the network via interconnect partners.
“Wholesale operators that can offer a spam, spoofing, flooding and faking free network have a compelling service differentiator to offer their mobile operator client base and the entire GSM carrier community," said Alex Duncan, CEO, Openmind Networks. “Our wholesale clients are protected against undesirable traffic, thereby removing an important barrier to the success of intercarrier messaging. This release delivers the mobile industry’s highest level of anti-spam protection against unwanted and damaging messaging traffic. Please visit www.openmindnetworks.com to download a copy of the brochure or arrange a demonstration at 3GSM Middle East & Gulf in September.”
Mobile Spam is an emerging problem in mobile networks and the experience of the internet and email shows that having the proper control mechanisms in place is vital to prevent service degradation over time. Protect provides wholesale carriers with such a control mechanism – it is powerful enough to carry out sophisticated analysis of every message being processed by the carrier in real-time and comes with a highly configurable rules engine to harness this capability.
