In order to achieve ahealthy, vibrant next-generation market, it is vital that carriers andsoftware, content and equipment providers are confident that their effortswill not be hijacked by unscrupulous people looking to profit illegally frompoorly protected services.

Pete Watts, head of fraud operations at Azure Solutions, said: “Telecomsfraud is nothing new and it will never entirely go away. Azure has beenassisting telcos, worldwide to keep fraud to acceptable and manageablelevels very successfully, but the introduction of next-generation networksand services will present telcos with new challenges. We have developed ourfraud-control products to ensure that future services are both resilient andprotected from fraudsters and thus provide all participants with theconfidence that fraud will not be an issue that keeps them away from theexciting potential of the next-generation world.”
