Protect Subscribers When Devices are Stolen

The rise of smartphones places mobile devices at the center of people’s personal and social life and the device contains numbers, messages, photos and videos that may not be backed up. Theft of the device means precious personal data is lost or, even worse, left open to abuse. In addition, the deployment of pre-paid services where subscribers are anonymous and untraceable means that there is a ready market for stolen devices.

Mavenir’s EIR solution helps CSPs gain control over the identity of the mobile devices, and thwarting calls from stolen, or unauthorized devices.

Equipment Control and Compliance 

It is a significant initiative for a CSP to actively fight theft of mobile devices, but not doing so could put the CSP at risk, becoming a target of negative publicity and poor subscriber perception.   Additionally, reducing phone theft reduces other frauds with the stolen phones which are widely used to perpetrate other scams.

The best tactic for reducing theft is to make theft a worthless activity. If it is widely understood that a stolen device will immediately be blocked, then this reduces the value of the stolen device and lowers the incentive to theft.

Mavenir’s EIR helps CSPs with equipment control and compliance by preventing malicious usage of network resources.  This could be from cloned numbers or even calls from stolen devices while allowing only those known, approved devices to access the network.
