ECtel Offers Fraud Management Solutions to Angola Telecom

By SIP Trunking Report Contributor

ECtel, a provider of Integrated Revenue Management, or “IRM,” solutions for communications service providers, is offering the fraud management system “FraudView” to Angola Telecom, the primary telecommunications company in Angola, to protect their revenue through real-time detection and prevention of fraud losses.

FraudView is a comprehensive fraud management system designed to meet the needs of wireline, wireless, convergent and next generation communication service providers. With both internal and external real-time detection and prevention of numerous fraud types, users can stem revenue losses across all business lines and services.
According to Antonio Alberto Briffel Neto, administrator of Angola Telecom, the company required an innovative and flexible fraud management solution that meets the demands of their growing business.
ECtel's FraudView provides them with the tools to maximize their revenue potential and prevent fraud losses in their accelerated growth process.
“Not only did ECtel provide us with the market's best solution, but they packaged it together with supreme service and support as well,” said Neto.
ECtel's FraudView includes a variety of unique, state-of-the-art fraud detection and prevention technologies, including risk management systems, new subscriber evaluation, best in class network traffic and usage monitoring.
According to company officials, FraudView is deployed at over 75 operators worldwide and boasts the industry's largest installed base for wireline and wireless operators and the market's first solutions supporting 3G and VoIP networks.
 “This order from Angola Telecom attests to our commitment to the African region and establishes ECtel as one of the leading revenue management providers in Africa,” said Itzik Weinstein, president and chief executive officer of ECtel.
LR Group, a company operating worldwide in financing, managing, developing, producing and maintaining medium and large scale national projects, with a special focus on Africa, is also part of this project.
Early this year, ECtel announced a similar business deal with ZON Multimedia, Portugal's largest triple-play operator, to offer the FraudView solutions to protect revenue through real-time detection and prevention of fraud losses.
Angola Telecom currently serves over 110,000 Angolan customers, and is the country's international gateway for communication.
