Service providers are "opening up” their networks to third parties to better serve subscriber demand for personalized services that are accessible anywhere on any device. As you enable third-party services, Tekelec’s Securing the Network solution allows you to:
- Protect your network from fraudulent short message service (SMS) messages, using Tekelec’s SMS Firewall product. With user-definable routing and screening capabilities, you can filter any incoming SMS message. Optional, modular filters provide deep SMS message inspection capabilities and contextual traffic monitoring like content filtering, anti-flooding and pattern detection.
- Track sources of revenue loss in real time and reduce their impact to your bottom line. The Tekelec Performance Intelligence Center (PIC) product family gives you the network-wide visibility to identify security issues and take corrective action when you suspect fraudulent activity.
- Deter mobile handset theft by blocking stolen devices from accessing your network. With Tekelec’s Equipment Identify Register (EIR) product, you can enter a device’s International mobile equipment Identity (IMEI) into the EIR "blacklist” to prevent its registration. You can assign individual and/or ranges of IMEIs to white (allowed), black (blocked) or gray (track) lists.
