SC.Call Screening

Black and White lists for voice calls and SMS

This platform is intended for filtering and redirection of inbound and outbound voice calls and SMS by using Black and White lists of telephone numbers. To solve these tasks the platform processes signaling traffic (CAMEL, INAP, MAP, ISUP). Platform features allow to use it for implementation of different business cases:

  1. Filtering services for ordinary subscribers
  2. Filtering services for corporate customers
  3. MNO's network protection from malicious calls from external networks
