Why Robocall and Fraud Mitigation Needs to Be Webscale

Sponsored by

Most of today’s robocall and fraud mitigation solutions are cloud-hosted, using analytics to automate the identification and prevention of illegitimate robocalls and fraud attacks.  This makes sense, but cloud-hosted analytics is not enough.  Robocall and fraud mitigation solutions need to be able to rapidly adapt and integrate new technology.  But how can massive software deployments underpinning the largest communication networks in the world adapt on timescales measured in days without sacrificing the reliability of the network? By separating out risk domains while applying the development and deployment techniques from webscale companies.  Being designed this way means voice service providers have an answer for how to deal with the rapidly changing landscape of robocalls and fraud attacks.

Unlike a typical network operator’s call processing infrastructure, which can be characterized by technology adoption rates expressed in years, webscale implementations of new technologies and machine learning algorithms can be deployed or modified on timescales measured in days.

Join this webinar to learn the specific aspects of webscale design that delivers innovation, rapid responsiveness, automated lifecycle management, and a high degree of flexibility to handle continuously changing requirements.  And learn how to deploy such a solution that interworks seamlessly with the existing call processing infrastructure.

Please join us in this session to discuss how:

  • Webscale design enables adaptability, innovation, rapid responsiveness to changing requirements
  • Open APIs enable flexibility for ingesting new data sources, including from analytics systems that can identify bad actors by examining network traffic patterns and call detail records
  • Voice service providers can customize what is considered “bad” or “suspect” calls and choose how to best handle each call in real-time
  • Robocall and fraud mitigation solutions can seamlessly interwork with the traditional call processing infrastructure to leverage network enforcement points
