Introduction of AITIA by a Chatbot An example of chatbot information solutions
Telecommunication Division Developing and providing software for Network-wide Monitoring Systems Telecommunications Traffic Analysis Application Gateways & Service Logic Fraud Detection Systems Short Message (SMS) Handling Support for Roaming Services and Testing Location Based Services Missed Call Notifications EIR: Equipment Identity Register
Interface cards Based on in-house developed cards: 2x2 (1.5) Mbps PDH (E1/T1) 2x155 Mbps SDH/SONET and ATM 4x100 BaseT, copper 4x1000 BaseT, fiber, copper Utilizing L2 and L3 technologies: SS7 MTP HSL - many - e.g.30 links bundled MTP3b, AAL-5 Ethernet, SIGTRAN, ATM
Our Passive Monitoring Systems in Use for 1…10 years SS7 & GPRS monitoring to cover complete networks analyzes and stores traffic and call data (30 million calls/day) creates statistics and debug info real-time call tracing filtering fraudulent calls right tool for handling customer complaints Gigabit EthernetMonitoring monitoring Tbytes of data for traffic analysis to detect bottlenecks and other traffic problems on-line filtering and off-line processing software
