The Story

When the client attended a Mutare webinar and learned of Mutare’s Voice Traffic Filter they signed on for a Mutare Voice Traffic Analysis. Reports generated from the customer-supplied CDR data revealed that, of the 4,169,350 calls processed through the Voice Traffic Filter, nearly 10% were unwanted spam or robocalls. Over a year’s time, that would amount to 734,961 unwanted calls that could be blocked by the filter, including nearly 250,000 defined as having nefarious intent. The dollar gains for improved productivity due to reduced call disruptions came to an estimated $1,900,000 annually. What’s more, IT helpdesk saw a dramatic decrease in trouble tickets related to nuisance spam and scam calls, further adding to convincing evidence of the filter’s effectiveness. Noting Mutare’s commitment to a product designed to evolve with the ever-changing challenges of voice spam detection and network security, the customer recently updated their application to the most recent release, adding deeper threat detection capabilities to their Mutare voice traffic filtering system.
