Tektronix introduces NET-C in India

Tektronix has introduced the NET-C monitoring system, a new product that provides users
with centralized control for assessing quality of service and detecting fraud in
real-time, mobile and fixed telecommunications networks. Containing non-intrusive
algorithms (INMD/ITU-T P.561), the product can be used by network operators to monitor and
analyze the transmission quality of 2-Mb/s telephone systems.

NET-C can be used to obtain real-time statistical traffic information and to identify
operation and maintenance problems. The system is based around a central client-server
unit that can manage several geographically distributed peripheral probe units.

According to the company, the main advantage that NET-C provides to its users is the
monitoring and detecting of telephone network fraud. The system can detect call back, blue
box, refile, GSM roaming fraud, cloning and other abuses that can cost telecommunication
companies extensive revenue losses. Call back and refill refer to the use of alternative
calling procedures, such as the use of incoming international calls, to place
international calls, which reduce costs for the caller or the operator. Blue-box calls are
international calls that are made using toll-free numbers in other countries. GSM roaming
fraud, such as subscriber identification module (SIM) misuse and cloning/duplicating, is
based on illegal activity performed on visited networks.

Mahendran, Corporate Manager-Marketing, Tektronix India Ltd, said, "Not only does
making an investment in an integrated system save money for our customers, but the system
can also help them control revenue losses that can result from both network malfunctioning
problems and telephone traffic abuse."
