Banglalink, one of the leading service providers in Bangladesh has selected Infobip's sGate SMS firewall to increase control and visibility of SMS traffic, allowing for a more secure and profitable messaging ecosystem.
sGate works as a “gatekeeper” to an operator’s network, monitoring and filtering SMS, USSD, and HLR, and detecting abnormal traffic flows indicating fraudulent activity. Based on automated tracking of SMS source behaviour, content, and format, sGate detects irregularities and allows an operator to tackle threats by blocking or monitoring them more closely. The system will monitor and control both domestic and international inbound SMS traffic across Banglalink’s network.
By giving Banglalink full network visibility, Infobip said it enables the operator to increase network efficiency by understanding where network congestion issues lie and allowing them to address unbilled A2P SMS traffic. Through pre-set traffic control polices, sGate creates a controlled ecosystem to ensure traffic conforms to the restrictions of the network and in turn enables the operator to benefit from new revenue and lower costs of SMS service.
To ensure continued success of the deployment, Infobip has created a dedicated Bangladesh-based support team to allow mobile operators in the region to use the sGate SMS firewall both to minimise SMS fraud and drive new revenue opportunities.
