combating fraud with accurate data
TruNumber Protect provides a comprehensive database of high-risk and unallocated number ranges. It leverages our authoritative dial plan data, presented in a common format to cover 245 ISO Country Codes for countries and territories worldwide. Our datasets enable service providers to pinpoint — and flag — potential fraudulent calls and take immediate preventive action in real time.
The intuitive, cloud-based user interface lets you slice and dice the data to load into routing tables, switches or least cost routing mechanisms. This empowers you to decide what traffic to block and monitor.
use Origin Based Rating (OBR) for accurate rating and billing
OBR is a rating method based on the origination location and the termination destination of a voice call, used to determine the billing amount per call. Depending on the call’s originating country, service provider and line type, the terminating network service provider will apply a charge. The terminating network service provider may also add an increased surcharge to the rate if calling line identification (CLID) is not supplied by the originating service provider.
OBR can affect any network service provider that originates or terminates international voice traffic. Surcharge rates for calls without calling party numbers, CallerID or automatic number identification (ANI), including those with manipulated or invalid numbers, can be charged a penalty by the terminating network service provider.
iconectiv TruNumber Protect’s global authoritative database of telephone number ranges help service providers accurately rate and charge for terminating calls based on the originating telephone number range. Leveraging TruNumber Protect, service providers can identify the origin country, network service provider, type of phone number and legitimacy for any worldwide telephone number range.

fraud: a multi-billion dollar problem
Fraudulent abuse of communications networks and technologies results in more than $32 billion in losses every year. See how TruNumber Protect can help prevent International Revenue Share Fraud (IRSF) and other types of number fraud by proactively blocking fraudulent calls before they take place.
telecom fraud is constantly evolving
Fraudsters grow more devious and sophisticated every year. For service providers, that means billions lost annually to interconnection-related fraud such as IRSF. IRSF exploits International Premium Rate Numbers (IPRN) and unallocated numbers to send fraudulent calls and text messages to high-cost areas around the world. It is currently one of the most lucrative types of fraud in the world.
The most effective way to reduce IRSF is to identify and stop the crime before it takes place. TruNumber Protect helps prevent IRSF and other types of fraud from entering your network. It’s designed to complement your current fraud strategies, easily integrating with your existing systems so you can make more efficient use of your fraud prevention resources.
