Benefits for you, the mobile operator

  • Detailed trend analysis and real-time reports of SMS activity. The system highlights problem areas.
  • Real-Time Alerts: SNMP traps, SMS, and emails can be sent to the NOC team when threats occur.
  • Powerful Rules Engine, with a multitude of matching criteria. Operators can implement broad policies and attain fine-grained control.
  • Block messages; return error messages; inform the message sender that the SMS has been delivered when in fact it has been removed from the network.
  • Protection when roaming: messages are routed through SMS Firewall for screening, before being delivered to roamers.
  • AVG Integration: The Cellusys Global Threat Network is regularly updated with new threat definitions from AVG, which SMS Firewall uses in scanning SMS content.
  • Cellusys SMS Firewall can be configured with multiple virtual instances; each instance can be used by an individual network with its own message policies. Supports MVNOs, International SMS Gateways, SMS Hubbers.
  • Tailors to the technical capabilities of your network elements. Integrates with any network’s STPs or Signalling Gateways. Supports both traditional TDM links and SIGTRAN M2PA or M3UA links.
  • Highly scalable, to handle large increases in traffic with minimal upgrade costs and effort. Additional Message Processor machines easily integrate with only minor configuration changes.
  • Critical revenue-generating of A2P traffic. A2P messaging, bulk SMS providers, and corporate SMS (Banking, OTP, etc.) can be blocked until commercial agreements are put in place.
  • Block SMS from foreign operators until a more favourable roaming contract is negotiated.
  • Reduced licensing costs of SMSCs: Block fraudulent SMS and see a reduction in messaging volume on the core of the network – where you pay for bandwidth.
  • Less spam means more satisfied customers, which means lower costs at your call centres, and fewer people leaving your network.
  • Process an unlimited number of messages. Expand your system, and you won’t incur any additional software licensing fees.
  • Access CDRs easily – to analyse, verify billing, etc. CDRs are created for every message processed, and they are stored centrally.
