TelcoBridges and YouMail Offer Service Providers a Quick & Easy Solution to Address FCC Mandate for Illegal Robocall Mitigation
Montreal, Canada – February 16, 2021 – TelcoBridges, a leading designer and manufacturer of carrier-grade virtual session border controller software and Tmedia VoIP gateways, today announced an Integration Partnership with YouMail that enables ProSBC customers to block illegal robocallers “on the fly.” The combination of ProSBC and YouMail is aimed at U.S. Service providers, hosted IP-PBX providers, UCaaS providers, TDM service providers and essentially any provider offering voice services.
“Service providers in the US have been given a mandate by the FCC to implement some form of robocall mitigation on their networks by June 2021,” said Alan Percy, CMO at TelcoBridges. “A service provider can very quickly deploy ProSBC in their upstream calling path, and use our YouMail Integration to detect and mitigate illegal robocalling in its tracks.”
TelcoBridges’ ProSBC is a scalable virtual session border controller, used to protect and manage traffic on service provider and enterprise networks. With the YouMail Integration, ProSBC can detect & redirect suspicious callers and document abuse – helping providers meet the FCC mandate for mitigation. The integration leverages YouMail’s patented AI algorithms and a pan American sensor network to mitigate robocalls. YouMail helps service providers instantly boost customer satisfaction by blocking robocalls, and it also enables service providers to drive new revenues and comply with regulatory mandates. A subscription to the YouMail Spam Caller API is required.
“This joint integration gives service providers a turn-key robocall mitigation solution they can deploy in their networks with 100% confidence,” said YouMail’s CTO, Mike Rudolph. “It enables them to quickly begin protecting their subscribers and comply with impending FCC mandates.”
Later this year, TelcoBridges plans to add the YouMail capabilities to the TMG Media Gateways, which will allow TDM operators and enterprises to also block illegal robocallers.
