Spotter is an all-in-one service for Operators to take control over OTT usage on their network, from simple monitoring to monetization.

Spotter is designed to detect, quantify and control the usage of the
main OTT VoIP protocols on the Operator’s network by continuously monitoring its IP traffic.
In particular, Spotter detects and blocks OTT bypass fraud in real time, resulting in the
recovery of international incoming traffic.

Adaptable architecture

DPI as a service

Spotter is based on a dedicated platform combining in-house proprietary software and DPI
(Deep Packet Inspection) probes that analyze the IP traffic.

The system architecture comes with 2 options:
Pass-through mode

Probes tap on the IP link and have direct action on the traffic.

Spotter pass-through mode
Replication mode

Probes are put in replication on the network and operate in passive mode: any action on the traffic is done by the sending of a message to the operator’s equipment

Spotter Replication mode

All the required hardware (Spotter platform, probes, network cables, accessories)
are provided by FraudBuster. The hardware and software maintenance and supervision
are entirely done remotely by FraudBuster.
