NewNet Communication Technologies: Reimagining Communication with Innovative Telecom Solutions

Read original CIOReview article here: http://telecom.cioreview.com/vendor/2016/newnet_communication

The mobile communications market is witnessing a paradigm shift towards ‘cloudification’, and highly scalable Software-as-a-Service solutions to lower total cost of ownership, and to future-proof operator revenues by launching new, richer unified services quicker. This shift is not only marked by delivery of new emerging IP communication technologies but also by the supporting services that consolidate legacy SS7 based service capabilities. Set against the backdrop of dynamic mobile communications market is NewNet Communication Technologies (NewNet), a provider of innovative solutions for next generation mobile technologies, enables operators to build, manage, and deploy cost efficient SMS, MMS, and RCS systems. “Our product portfolio covers virtual instances of SMS, MMS, VoWIFI, WebRTC and IP messaging solutions,” asserts Brent Newsome, VP of Business Development, NewNet Messaging. Offering on-premise as well as cloud deployment options, the company provides its customers the flexibility to invest in their networks using either CAPEX or OPEX business models.

As part of its mobile communications solution, NewNet offers four software-based products for Mobile Network Operators (MNO’s), Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO’s), Inter-Carriers, and telecommunication providers that can be deployed in an integrated virtual environment. The company’s Rich Communication Service (RCS) including voice over WiFi, Video over WiFi, WebRTC, IP Messaging, and media sharing empowers operators to build subscriber loyalty and seamless transition to IP LTE Networks. NewNet’s enhanced SMS comes with a scalable support for application-to-person promotional messages, person-to-application checking balance and machine-to-machine system updates to further boost revenue. To ensure loss prevention and monitor deviations in SMS/MMS revenue stream, the company offers SMS Firewalls and Anti Virus solutions, increasing transparency of application traffic within networks. The mobile communications also offer high performance multimedia messaging (MMS) with transcoding, campaign management, and ability to track viral sharing. Additionally, NewNet provides SS7 and SIP Middleware for mission critical nodes.

The company has recently ported and validated its mobile communications software to three Network Function Virtualization (NFV) platforms enabling operators to seamlessly migrate from customized hardware solutions to a virtualized world and boost TCO. “We have been able to transform our messaging products to a software only offering that can be deployed in a virtualized manner, with ongoing new VAS feature commitment,” asserts Newsome. “In our Mobile Communications division, we build on a 10-year old strong partner network with worldwide reach.” Moreover, the company also focuses on providing cloud contact center solution; VoltDelta offers scalability, reliability, and security for distributed contact centers and remote agents. “With best integration into Oracle, we are not moving premise into cloud, we were born in the cloud,” says Ben Miller, SVP, American Sales, NewNet VoltDelta.

An interesting instance happened at the Mobile World Congress show when one of NewNet’s OEM handset customers used its RCS platform to develop latest software with new features. The client had implemented the platform well beyond the RCS specifications without any help or support from NewNet. “The thing that surpassed our expectations was that they had been developing this over several months, and demonstrated the new version at the world’s largest mobile trade show from our platform without us even knowing,” elucidates Newsome.
NewNet’s growth lies in mobile operators’ transition to all IP mobile networks and eliminate traditional circuit switched infrastructure. “We view our RCS and WebRTC platforms as enablers of this new infrastructure for both mobile services such as IP based messaging, and call center infrastructure,” concludes Newsome.

NewNet Partners with CALLUP and Neusoft to Address Growing Demand for VoWiFi and Enhanced Chat 12/3/15

NewNet integrates with Android client apps to provide cellular operators with a complete solution for new VoWiFi and enhanced Chat and SMS based on RCS

Chicago, IL – NewNet Communications Technologies, a global leader in mobility technologies, CALLUP, a provider of Value Added Services (VAS) and Mobile Device Management (MDM) for the telecom industry and Neusoft Mobile Solutions, a provider of IP communication client solutions, today announced a strategic partnership. Under the agreement, NewNet will integrate CALLUP’s Wi-Fi Calling and Neusoft ChatSMS rich communications clients into NewNet’s Krypton line of messaging products for video share, location share and chat via Wi-Fi hotspots. NewNet partners with these client vendors to offer the combined solution worldwide. The solution is currently deployed at Teleena in the Netherlands

Poor cellular phone coverage in buildings is one of the most critical problems for mobile communications today. CALLUP resolves this issue with an Android client that works with NewNet’s Krypton RCS platform to allow subscribers to take advantage of WiFi hotspot connectivity. An installed Android CALLUP app seamlessly intercepts voice call requests and routes them via the (home) Wi-Fi router to the carrier’s Krypton RCS-solution. Algorithms inspect IP quality and Wi-Fi signal performance prior to call initiation to ensure quality. In addition, calls placed to the handset are also attempted over Wi-Fi when the client is connected and registered, enabling IP-based quality and cost savings. Quality control algorithms again allow the call to be received over Wi-Fi or signal back to the network when it’s better to receive the call over the mobile network in poor Wi-Fi conditions.

“WI-FI calling empowers operators with the ability to directly enhance loyalty via a service that delivers improved voice and messaging quality plus cost savings to their subscribers” said Alon Roth, CALLUP’s CEO. “CALLUP’s integration with NewNet’s Krypton RCS platform also enables operators to provide a compelling alternative to OTT competitors while ensuring a seamless upgrade path when native RCS handsets becomes prevalent”.

The Neusoft ChatSMS client provides subscribers with an OTT like chat service app (chat-app) which also includes Video-Share, Location-Share and File-Share. Neusoft’s ChatSMS client in combination with the Krypton RCS platform provides a way for operators to deploy GSMA Association’s joyn℠ and also add RCS functionality to 3G/4G/LTE/WI-FI networks.

“Neusoft’s ChatSMS client in combination with the Krypton RCS platform and its SMS support makes this chat-app instantly able to communicate with 7 billion subscribers around the globe,” said Markus Jakobsson, Neusoft’s Sales and Product Manager. “Operators can step beyond OTT chat silo-ed alternatives with seamless bi-directional chat to SMS that subscribers will appreciate for its geographic reach and service independent mobility.”
In addition Neusoft has packaged its ChatSMS app for Android with a Service Ribbon which allows seamless use of enriched services during any mobile or VoWIFI call. The Service Ribbon displays three overlay buttons enriching the mobile or Wi-Fi call with video, chat or location capabilities.

“Innovative communication such as VoWiFi and next generation chat are clear examples of services that benefit subscribers and mobile operators,” said Jonathan Huberman, NewNet’s president and CEO. “NewNet’s Krypton RCS platform in partnership with smartphone client apps from CALLUP and Neusoft allow mobile operators to cost-effectively encourage subscriber loyalty, stand out from OTT competition, and increase bottomline success.”

NewNet’s Krypton IP communication platform is based on GSMA’s RCS 5.2 standard. Krypton allows operators to deploy VoIP and Video Calling, Video Sharing, Instant Messaging, Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC) solutions, RCS Network API, Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) Presence enabler, Common Message Store, Best Efforts Voice, VoLTE, Wi-Fi offload, and seamless IP to SMS integration functionality with or without an IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) core.

VoltDelta confirms PCI compliance with audited security recertification

New York, NY, October 5, 2015 –VoltDelta announced today that its cloud contact center platform has been recertified with a Service Provider Level 1 Attestation of Compliance for the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). This Attestation certifies through independent audit that VoltDelta’s Cloud Contact Center once again meets the highest security standards set forth for payment card processing today.

PCI Level 1 Certification is considered the most stringent level of PCI validated security. To achieve PCI level 1 compliance, VoltDelta engaged in an extensive third-party audit conducted by an organization that has been designated by the PCI Council as a Quality Security Assessing (QSA) Company.

This independent QSA has reconfirmed as annually required by PCI Council standards, that VoltDelta meets industry best practices and security controls required to keep credit card data and other sensitive information safe and secure during transmission, processing and storage. As a result, VoltDelta has been recertified for PCI Service Provider Level 1 DSS.

“Independently audited PCI certification provides our cloud contact center customers with secure customer care confidence that cannot be matched by infrastructures that rely on PCI self-assessments,” said Yusuf Bulan, General Manager of VoltDelta, “VoltDelta’s commitment to confidentiality, system availability and data integrity within our entire organization ensures that contact centers of all sizes will benefit from systems and processes in place for multichannel security.”

VoltDelta’s certification was confirmed for the 3.1 DSS standard. Notable additions from DSS 2.0 include:

• Definition to ensure daily processes are consistently applied
• Requirements for segmentation practices between tenants in hosted environments
• Strong encryption for data management without the use of SSL

Compliance with the PCI standard is required for organizations directly involved in the processing, storage, or transmission of cardholder data. VoltDelta’s PCI Level 1 certification adds independently verified proof that its cloud contact center infrastructure delivers the security necessary to ensure confidentiality, availability and integrity for payment card data as well as for all forms of sensitive information.

VoltDelta and RX Outreach Win Speech Technology Magazine’s Implementation Speech Industry Award for Customer Care 8/18/15

VoltDelta’s voice recognition and virtual contact center assists non-profit pharmacy’s mission to provide affordable medications

Chicago, IL, August 17, 2015 – VoltDelta announced today that it has been named along with Rx Outreach as the recipients of a Speech Technology Magazine 2015 Speech Industry Award in the Implementation Awards category. VoltDelta was recognized for deployment of its DeltaDialog IVR solution for Rx Outreach, which provides inbound self-service and outbound prescription reminders for those requiring affordable medications.

Speech Technology Magazine noted that Implementation Award winners “have implemented a speech solution or upgraded an existing system and achieved a SIGNIFICANT business benefit during the last 12 months as a result.”

VoltDelta provides Rx Outreach with an exceptionally reliable cloud Interactive Voice Response (IVR) and contact center communication infrastructure that works to improve customer satisfaction with cost saving efficiency. Innovative IVR prompts and dialogs dynamically shift based upon contextual knowledge of each customer such as whether they recently placed an order, are up for re-enrollment, or other activity. As a result, callers more quickly achieve their goal without agent assistance.

“Rx Outreach needed a communications infrastructure that would allow us to more effectively reach and respond to a population of clients that deserves but sometimes feel that they do not get exceptional customer care” said Jeff Clark, Chief Information Officer Rx Outreach. “VoltDelta’s voice self-service keeps our clients engaged, encourages reuse, and helps RX Outreach perform more effectively as a non-profit organization.”

VoltDelta’s IVR solution has led to increased voice self-service automation of between 32% and 36% of calls every month within an environment that adheres to HIPAA and PCI security requirements for safe handling of personal information and credit cards when processing prescription orders.

Rx Outreach also takes advantage of VoltDelta’s outbound calling application for prescription refill reminders, and shipping order notifications. This reduces inbound calls and has contributed to an increase in prescription fulfillment. VoltDelta’s Content Management allows Rx Outreach to self-modify IVR prompts and dialogs so that they can quickly adapt to changes.

DeltaDialog is part of VoltDelta’s Contact On Demand cloud platform, enabling multichannel communication for remote contact centers and home agents. Integration with popular CRM systems enables channel of choice communication for customers, with actionable intelligence delivered to agents and managers to enhance customer care.

“VoltDelta’s reliable and scalable IVR platform combined with our experienced Voice User Interface (VUI) design team is engaging callers with dialogs that are perceived as intelligent through the use of contextual awareness,” said Yusuf Bulan, General Manager of VoltDelta. “This enables Rx Outreach to deliver a better level of customer care for their clients.”

EMC’s Syncplicity Business to be Acquired by Skyview Capital; EMC Will Remain a Financial Stakeholder 7/7/15

Syncplicity to Accelerate Investment in Growth, Innovation and Enterprise Market Adoption

LOS ANGELES, July 7, 2015 – Skyview Capital, a global private investment firm, today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the Syncplicity® enterprise file sync and share business from EMC. EMC will retain a financial interest in Syncplicity.

sync

Syncplicity is a leading, enterprise-grade online file sharing and mobile collaboration solution that provides users with experience and tools they desire and gives IT the security and control it needs. Unlike other solutions that force users to store all information in the cloud, Syncplicity gives organizations unmatched flexibility through its hybrid approach. With Syncplicity, IT departments can create rules based on user, group or folder policy to determine whether files should be stored in the cloud or in an on-premise storage array.

Following its acquisition three years ago by EMC, Syncplicity has emerged as a growing standard for companies in a wide variety of industries such as technology, health care, financial services, education, law and engineering services. In addition to broad customer adoption, Syncplicity has been named a leader in both “The Forrester Wave: File Sync and Share Platforms, Q3 2013” and Gartner’s 2014 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing.

“Syncplicity’s best of breed, flexible hybrid solution coupled with its tremendous growth under EMC, made this investment decision an easy one for us. Under our ownership, Syncplicity will maintain its leadership position in this market through the rapid development of new capabilities and continued enhancement of end user experience. We are excited about EMC’s continued commitment to Syncplicity’s growth, and welcome Syncplicity’s employees and customers to the Skyview family,” said Alex Soltani, Chairman and CEO of Skyview Capital.

“Syncplicity has redefined the expectations of file sync and sharing in the enterprise, changing it from an unauthorized rogue application that employees use without IT approval to one that is blessed by IT, easily integrates with a company’s existing investments in email, storage and collaboration solutions and delivers a great user experience,” said Jonathan Huberman, the CEO of Syncplicity upon closing of the acquisition. “By focusing exclusively on and investing heavily in this rapidly growing market, Syncplicity has an enormous opportunity to significantly accelerate product innovation, attract a broad ecosystem of partners and resellers and drive customer adoption.”

“Syncplicity experienced great momentum as an EMC business in a highly dynamic and hyper-competitive landscape,” added Jeremy Burton, President of Products and Marketing, EMC Information Infrastructure. “However, the standalone EFSS market is evolving rapidly; customers are continually looking for new end-user features and functionality to enable their increasingly mobile workforce. This is a step away from EMC’s core infrastructure strength. This move is designed to ensure that Syncplicity is adequately positioned for success in the evolving EFSS market and to enable EMC to increase our focus on core EMC Information Infrastructure investments. EMC remains a financial stakeholder and committed to Syncplicity’s growth. The EMC salesforce will continue selling Syncplicity as part of the EMC Select partner program and EMC will remain a large-scale Syncplicity customer.”

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close this month. Specific terms of the transaction are confidential.

VoltDelta Partners With Oracle Service Cloud & Oracle Communications to Deliver WebRTC Enabled Cloud Contact Center Solution 6/15/15

Enhanced customer care combining voice, video and messaging within Oracle Service Cloud will be demonstrated by VoltDelta at the Call Center Week Conference

Chicago, IL, June 15, 2015 – VoltDelta, a NewNet Company, announced today that it will partner with Oracle Service Cloud to demonstrate an integrated multichannel cloud contact center solution using Oracle Communications WebRTC session controller. Video chat sessions between a customer and agent within the cloud contact center and Oracle Service Cloud can be experienced in Booth 618 at the Call Center Week conference from June 16-19 at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas, NV.

WebRTC is an open standard that provides browsers and mobile applications with Real-Time Communications (RTC) capabilities via simple APIs. New methods for engaging customers are now cost-effective realities such a clicking from your mobile device and viewing the agent you are speaking to or chatting with.

VoltDelta’s contact center on demand infrastructure intelligently distributes calls and messages to agents located in remote contact centers or in their home. Seamless integration with the Oracle Service Cloud unifies the contact intelligence and knowledge base maintained in a robust CRM system with the multichannel distribution and central management available as a cloud service.

A contact on demand “media bar” embedded within the agent’s familiar Oracle Service Cloud desktop presents call and message handling. Agents are able to preview their queue and intelligently manage communications. Contact center managers achieve immense flexibility by being able to dedicate channels to specific agents, or deploying “blended” agents supporting multiple channels. Managers are also able to define priority for agent attention.

“Oracle’s WebRTC session controller with Oracle Service Cloud is designed to deliver seamless Web-to-SIP network interoperability and enterprise-grade reliability and security”, said Paul Rutherford, Chief Architect at VoltDelta. “VoltDelta’s integration with Oracle’s WebRTC resource and Service Cloud means that new forms of engaging multichannel contact over IP networks will offer customer care and cost saving benefits”.

Video chat allows customers to combine voice or messaging with video in real-time from any mobile phone, table, or desktop PC supporting multimedia service. A contact on demand media bar within Oracle Service Cloud displays a notification that a customer would like to start a session. When the agent clicks ready, screens pop up on the agent desktop for video sharing along with text or audio.

“VoltDelta continues to innovatively integrate reliable and scalable call plus message handling with Oracle Service Cloud as an Oracle Gold Partner”, said Yusuf Bulan General Manager of VoltDelta. “Demonstrating Oracle Service Cloud’s first partner delivered WebRTC enabled Virtual Contact Center solution means contact centers of all sizes will be able to deliver the multichannel customer care solutions that mobile users are demanding.”

About VoltDelta
VoltDelta is a global cloud-based contact center provider with 35 years of experience. We perform intelligent, data-driven contact management to optimize your customer’s journey. Our contact on demand delivers multi-channel contact center solutions to enable you to increase revenue, boost retention and reduce operating costs with proven scalability and reliability.

Rx Outreach Provides Affordable Access to Critical Medicine for People with VoltDelta’s Cloud Contact Center 2/20/15

Multichannel cloud contact center improves the customer experience with engaging IVR, reliable agent infrastructure and automated prescription reminders

Pittsford, NY – February 18, 2015 – VoltDelta, a NetNet Communication Technologies company, announced today that Rx Outreach, the nation’s largest nonprofit, fully-licensed, mail order pharmacy and patient assistance program has deployed its cloud contact center solution to improve their customers’ experience across multiple channels of communication. Rx Outreach provides both branded and generic medications to those in need, and assists in creating healthy communities by reducing the cost of prescription medications.

VoltDelta provides Rx Outreach with an exceptionally reliable cloud contact center communication infrastructure along with effective Interactive Voice Response (IVR) that delivers significant cost savings. Additionally, Rx Outreach managers and staff now achieve additional customer care insight with call plus agent screen recording, which cost effectively captures every agent and IVR interaction.

VoltDelta was selected for their unique combination of technology, expertise, and proven ability to reliably scale for any call volume. For example, VoltDelta delivered IVR prompts and dialogs that dynamically shift based upon contextual knowledge of each customer such as whether they recently placed an order, are up for re-enrollment, or other activity. Rx Outreach will soon deploy VoltDelta’s WhisperTel technology to reduce the need for agents to ask callers to repeat information by delivering a brief recording of what a customer is seeking to the agent just prior to transfer from the IVR.

“Rx Outreach needed a communications infrastructure that would allow us to more effectively reach and respond to a population of clients that deserves but sometimes feel that they do not get exceptional customer care” said Jeff Clark, Chief Information Officer Rx Outreach. “We selected VoltDelta’s cloud contact center solution to help us deliver outstanding service to our patients and partners. The deep expertise of their personnel supported us from inception to deployment with creative solutions that integrated well with our systems and helped us realize significant cost savings.”

VoltDelta’s IVR solution has led to increased voice self-service automation of between 32% and 36% of calls every month within an environment that adheres to HIPAA and PCI security requirements for safe handling of personal information and credit cards when processing prescription orders.

Rx Outreach also takes advantage of VoltDelta’s outbound calling application for prescription refill reminders, or to notify when an order has shipped. This reduces inbound calls and has contributed to an increase in prescription fulfillment. VoltDelta’s Content Management allows Rx Outreach to self-modify IVR prompts and dialogs so that they can quickly adapt to customer inquiries.

“The use of our own technology for core ACD and call recording means that we can provide creative customer care solutions at rather unique price points within a cloud-based service,” said Terry Saeger, Vice President and General Manager of VoltDelta. “This enables VoltDelta to support Rx Outreach’s goal of delivering exceptional customer care within the framework of a non-profit organization.”

Skyview Capital Builds Portfolio to Enable Telecom and Software Growth 9/9/13

By Rachel Ramsey, TMCnet Web Editor

Despite the gloomy economy for the past few years, there are some industries that have seen immense growth, innovation and development. Take telecom, for example. More than $80 billion in telecommunications and cable transactions have been completed this year, including ones from DISH, SoftBank, Vodafone andVerizon (News – Alert).

“Companies are looking to grow through acquisition as demand slows for wireless and Internet services, and they’re seeking scale so they can afford to build the high-speed networks necessary for the latest mobile and video offerings,” a recentBloomberg (News – Alert) article said.

Skyview Capital, a privately held investment firm that specializes in the acquisition and continuous management of mission-critical enterprises, has built an expertise in carve-out transactions, particularly in the telecom and software sectors, and is actively looking for additional businesses to invest in.

This year, Skyview has definitely kept itself busy. In July it acquired the Mimio online education business from Newell Rubbermaid, which offers interactive teaching technologies to increase effectiveness and engagement in K–12 classrooms. It also acquired Interact Inc. earlier this year, a provider of interactive voices response (IVR) platforms and hosted IVR systems to help improve global communications, and theTekelec (News – Alert) Mobile Messaging business.
Alex Soltani, chairman of Skyview Capital, said, “Skyview Capital has built up a strong reputation, performing carve out and buyout transactions. We have a team of operating professionals, who work with the management teams to stabilize and grow the acquired businesses.”

In addition to 2013’s acquisitions, Skyview’s current and previous portfolio includes Aserdiv, Collins Communications, Fastech Integrated Solutions (News – Alert), NewNet Communication Technologies, Ixilix, Solvport, PAS Technologies and Transcend Communications (News – Alert).  Skyview was recently honored by The Los Angeles Business Journal as one of the Top-25 LA-based private equity firms.

“At Skyview, we strive to create long-term sustainable value within the enterprises we acquire, by providing them the highest level of financial resources and operational acumen necessary to realize and achieve their full business potential. Our investment principles are driven strictly by growth – organic growth, growth through acquisition, and specifically growth through our partnerships with talented executives,” Soltani said.

NewNet SMS Firewall Protects Networks from SIM Card Security Breaches 8/1/13

By Rachel Ramsey, TMCnet Web Editor

By Rachel Ramsey, TMCnet Web Editor

Mobility has become a common part of everyday life for both consumers and enterprises alike. However, as most technology areas are revealing, security remains one of the top concerns and hackers and cyber criminals continue to discover ways to take advantage of loosely enforced security provisions. Research from the International Association of IT Asset Managers (IAITAM) found that 51 percent of organizations have a bring your own device (BYOD) program that allows employees to use their personal mobile devices for work purposes, and out of the employees who access the enterprise remotely, slightly more than half use a secure key or digital pass, while 49 percent use a login name and password on a secure site.
People have a right to be concerned about the security on their mobile devices. Recently, the founder of Security Research Labs in Berlin, Karsten Nohl, found a security flaw that potentially opens up around 750 million SIM cards to hackers and cyber criminals who could obtain a SIM Card’s 56-digit digital key, which then opens the SIM card for modification. That then allows hackers to send a virus to a mobile phone via an SMS which would enable them to eavesdrop on a caller, make purchases through mobile payment systems on behalf of the phone owner or even impersonate the phone’s owner.

NewNet (News – Alert) Communication Technologies, a provider of next-generation mobile and fixed line networks solutions, offers a mobile messaging firewall feature that solves the SIM card messaging security breach and provides security, reliability and scalability to customers. The NewNet SMS Firewall works with most of the major SMS installations from other vendors and is already deployed with major carriers around the world to protect the network and their respective subscribers from this security breach.

The SMS Firewall supports advanced filtering and blocking to prevent unwanted SMS messages. With enhanced load distribution and throughput control, it provides overload protection from signaling system 7 (SS7) and Internet protocol (IP) message originators. The system’s SS7 routing and screening capabilities are based on user-definable rules that filter any incoming SMS message. In addition to the basic SS7 level detection and filtering, the SMS Firewall also provides protection through optional, intelligent modular filters, which provide deep SMS message inspection, such as content filtering, anti-flooding and pattern detection. “I believe this solution opens the door to help customers, worldwide, solve a potential problem in their networks,” said Krishna Viswanadham, GM of the NewNet Messaging Business Unit.

When combining the NewNet SMS Firewall with NewNet’s Personalized Services, additional functionality is offered to control messages. Mobile operators can decide to control messages themselves or give subscribers a powerful tool to control messages via short-codes or a Web GUI. Examples of filtering offered via Personalized Services are:

  • Black-White List — Messages originated from a specific MSISDN or short number/alphanumeric address are blocked/allowed based on a personal originator black or white list of the recipient
  • Automatic Black List — Allows to temporarily, or permanently, automatic blacklist a subscriber from sending or receiving messages, based on exceeding certain criteria
  • Quota Filter — Applies quotas to subscribers to reject SMS messages based on the number of messages per day/per hour/per minute duration

In addition to filters, NewNet offers home routing, which allows a mobile operator to take full control of the messages originated from a foreign message center that are addressed to subscribers roaming on a network. This offers a protected environment to any type of subscriber, limiting the risk of getting an infected message or phone entering the mobile operator network.
PJ Louis, CEO of NewNet, said, “This security feature integrates both of our messaging and payment security transaction units to add value added payment solutions for our customers.”

Matt Thompson, NewNet SVP of Corporate Development, said, “This feature provides enhanced security for our new and existing messaging customers.”
For mobile operators to replace millions of old SIM cards is an operational and timely challenge. With NewNet’s SMS Firewall and SMS Personalized Services, mobile operators can address this security flaw from the inside of the network without upgrading millions of handsets, allowing enough time to replace old SIM cards.

To help partners take advantage of new opportunities and niche solutions in the communications market by leveraging NewNet’s mobile messaging and secure transaction platforms, the company offers the NewNet Conexus Partner Program, a flexible, benefits-rich channel partner program to facilitate collective success for NewNet and NewNet partners. Focused on mutual success, the NewNet Conexus Partner Program rewards NewNet partners for their expertise in key technologies and local markets with attractive incentives, innovative products and comprehensive training, as well as professional sales and marketing support.

“We will be actively prepping Conexus partners to engage and deploy globally,” said Rick Landry, global director, channel sales.

NewNet Communication Technologies Traxcom Products Ensure Security in Transaction Processes 7/22/13

By Rachel Ramsey, TMCnet Web Editor

The proliferation of mobile devices has led to improved app development, features and capabilities. Think about how many different things you can accomplish from your smartphone or tablet alone – using GPS, sharing via social media, checking e-mail and making banking transactions or purchasing something online are not impossible feats. In fact, a recent U.S. Federal Reserve study found nearly 21 percent of mobile phone users have used mobile banking in the past year, and a Juniper Research (News–Alert) report predicts mobile commerce transactions to exceed $3.2 trillion by 2017. The rise in payment transactions means mobile device and network providers need to be prepared to offer high levels of security, safety and data confidentiality.

NewNet (News – Alert) Communications, a provider of solutions for next-generation mobile, fixed line networks, messaging and transaction processing, offers Traxcomsecure transaction processing solutions to provide a high degree of security to ensure data confidentiality and safety, and improve the efficiency of operations.

TMC (News – Alert) recently caught up with NewNet’s T.K. Cheung, SVP and GM of Secure Transaction Processing Division, to discuss the solutions, how they help set NewNet apart in the industry from competitors, what prompted NewNet to offerPCI (News – Alert) compliance with Traxcom and what’s in store for NewNet in the future.

The Traxcom solutions have facilitated secure, high-speed payments transaction aggregation from millions of POS/ATM/payment terminals and switching and routing of these transactions with high security to backend Financial Authorization Servers for more than 24 years. They target a variety of customers, including transaction acquirers, payment processors, banks, retailers, financial institutions, payment service providers, payment aggregators, transaction network service providers, fixed and mobile telecommunication network providers, Independent Sales Organizations (ISOs).

“We deliver secure payment transaction routing services for the legacy Dial POS terminals, now popular broadband and mobile payment terminals and fast emerging mobile smart POS and NFC Mobile Wallet transactions,” Cheung explained.

The Traxcom product portfolio includes the Total Control Secure Transaction Gateway (STG) Dial Payment processing system, which delivers a specialized suite that enables fast transaction processing of credit card authorizations, debit card fund transfers and health benefit authorizations, and AccessGuard 1000 Mobile and Broadband IP Payment Processing gateways, which are designed to process high volumes of IP-based authorization and payment queries generated from a “smart card” terminal device, and internet based payment terminal devices.

“Speed, security, stability and system availability are the key requirements of payment transaction systems and these hold the key parameters of NewNet Traxcom products as proven in the industry with our deployments with Tier 1 Acquirers, Processors, Wireline Carriers, MNOs (Mobile Network Operators) etc.,” said Cheung. “Security is the most critical aspect of payment transactions and having been in this business and working with some of the largest Tier 1 Acquirers, processor and carriers globally, we have remained in the forefront of offering most advance security for payment routing solutions with latest cryptographic methodologies.”

“NewNet’s Secure Transactions Business Unit provides mission-critical solutions to allow carriers and financial institutions to securely process electronic payment Transactions globally. As new point of sale (POS) payment platforms arise, there will be increased opportunities for NewNet’s Secure Transactions products and services. We are seeing traction domestically as these new digital payment platforms proliferate and as acquirers and ISOs seek innovative, customer-focused suppliers. We also see enormous growth in demand in emerging markets, which are experiencing rapid increases in credit card penetration and volumes,” said Matt Thompson, SVP corporate development, NewNet Communication Technologies
NewNet has integrated transaction processing, security handling, load balancing and network routing into a single system, thereby enabling customers to avoid the need for separate systems for each of the different functions.

“Our systems enable the customers to offer new payment solutions on emerging client/terminal devices by still connecting to existing authorization servers, thus bridging the future with present day systems,” said Cheung.

Traxcom and PCI Compliance

The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard represents a common set of industry standards to ensure the safe handling of sensitive payment card data information. These standards are founded by global payment brands – American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard (News – Alert)Worldwide and Visa Inc. – and have industry-wide participation from the payment industry ecosystem players comprising of banks, acquirers, processors, merchants, system providers, application developers and more. The PCI Security Standard council is responsible for the development, management, education and awareness of the PCI Security Standards, which cover the security requirements associated with multiple aspects of the payment industry.

NewNet serves a major role in the payment ecosystem. NewNet delivers market payment solutions that offer a true understanding of core payment functionalities, technology edge and far sighted vision which attempts to meet the following:

  • Enables the masses to make seamless payment transactions from mobile devices for card and non-card alternative payments
  • Offer integrated solutions for tokenization, data encryption, certificate management solutions for enhanced security of transactions
  • Advance commerce solutions for content streaming to POS devices which are touch points to consumers while in the middle of transaction authorization process
  • Provide innovative payment routing solution that avoids the need to store credit/debit card data or customer information on mobile devices for payment purposes
  • Work with financial institutions to offer payment processing systems that prevents the transfer of sensitive card data across public networks benefiting acquirers, processors, carrier and banks
  • Offer multicurrency and dynamic currency conversion solutions coupled with payment switching and routing
  • Ensure increased revenues for all entities in payment ecosystem by enabling faster, secure and reliable means of payment handling for e-commerce and m-commerce transactions

Putting Traxcom to Use

They also collect transaction session data records for statistics, traffic reporting etc. to enhance their transaction management capabilities.

The solutions empower MNOs or wireline/broadband telcos to derive new sources of revenue and have a major role in the payment ecosystem, including one or more of the several possible services of mobile/broadband/dial transaction acquiring, mobile/broadband/dial POS transaction transport as a VAS and mobile NFC wallet payment transaction routing.

“We have a clear vision for the payment industry for today and tomorrow as we stay ahead of the technology curve and move along the path breaking changes in the areas for new payment options, new devices with advanced service capabilities and security enhancements and strive to bring those benefits in our products to the market as quick as the market can adopt,” Cheung said.
