German network operator Wilhelm.tel selected the Ocean Services Platform (OSP) from Telsis to enable it to offer a new fraud reduction service for its customers. Wilhelm.tel is working with Telsis due to an increase in the number of handsets being illegally cloned in Germany.
After new regulation made it simple to purchase Customer Premise Equipment (CPE), businesses have been free to buy and sell their old equipment. However, in cases where SIP credentials are set on the router, a router’s new owner effectively has the ability to take over the previous user’s account. Using a standard-based approach OSP platform from Telsis allows operators to check the location of each device as part of the SIP registration process and automatically prevent registrations if the location is incorrect.
Wilhelm.tel conducted a thorough evaluation of competitive offerings before choosing the Telsis solution. It will be delivered via 3M, Telsis’ local partner in the region.
Project Manager at Wilhelm. tel, Mr Eric Höger said:
“We reviewed a number of options, but the OSP platform from Telsis was the one that stood out. We wanted a solution that enabled us to respond to changing business conditions rapidly. The platform can match our business ambitions – to scale existing product offerings and provide differentiated new services for customers.”
Wilhelm.tel was founded 15 years ago by parent company Stadtwerke Norderstedt to offer high-speed telecommunications services.
In the highly-competitive telecoms market in Germany, Wilhelm.tel has always focused on delivering innovation to its customers. It was the first operator in Germany to offer ˜triple play” services and has rapidly expanded its footprint since then. It has achieved 95% penetration in urban areas of the Norderstedt region, as well as expanding into other regions, notably the Hansestadt Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein areas.
