According to the Communications Fraud Control Association (CFCA), telecom fraud has cost service providers and enterprises upwards of $22.9 Billion in lost revenue or subscriber losses. Fraud is not just about lost revenue, but unfortunately, is all too often a source of illicit funding to international organized crime syndicates and terrorist groups. Many service providers and enterprises never realize they have been the victim of a fraud scheme until the end of the monthly billing cycle. By then it’s too late and the damage (or loss) is done.

Q: When is an SBC not an SBC?
A: When the SBC in question is not just an SBC!
And this is precisely the case with FreeSBC from TelcoBridges…
I was delighted when Alan Percy (CMO at TelcoBridges, and a long-time industry colleague and friend) gave me the opportunity to try out FreeSBC and to see what use I might put it to with a media engine and call-processing platform like Asterisk, and to write up my experiences…
Palau is an archipelago small nation in the western Pacific Ocean, made up of roughly 340 islands across an area of 466 square kilometers. An independent nation since the 1981, Palau is governed as a presidential republic and home to more than 21,000 people.
The limited population, expansive geography and the remoteness of the island nation has made serving the residents of Palau and their tourist guests with telecommunications services especially difficult. Because of the diverse geography, the island has depended on VHF wireless radios and pre-paid GSM telephone service as the dominant communications technologies.
Thanks to a new submarine fiberoptic cable, the island nation now enjoys connectivity to the outside world. But, how would the mobile operators of the island enable voice calling to the rest of the world? FreeSBC to the rescue.
