DALLAS, 11-Dec-2017 — /EPR TELECOM NEWS/ — Inovar’s Privacy Call Manager (PCM)—the latest addition to Inovar’s innovative suite of mobile solutions—is an efficient and scalable solution for mobile operators that protects a customer’s actual phone number from potential abuse using a “virtual” number to mask their true mobile number when making calls or sending texts.
Due to the proliferation of OTT mobile apps like Uber, Airbnb, Careem, and others, who connect consumers to sellers via their mobile devices, it has become increasingly important to ensure number privacy to prevent potential abuse. Privacy Call Manager offers both consumers and sellers number privacy and protection by restricting access to both the consumer’s and seller’s actual mobile number. PCM masks the real number of the consumer and seller by pairing the numbers with a “virtual” number to allow calls and/or texts to be completed between the two parties. As a result, the privacy of each party’s true mobile number is maintained throughout, eliminating the threat of misuse.
PCM can pair multiple consumers with a seller for multi-party scenarios such as ride-sharing, and can continue the number pairing for a configurable time period after the service completion for added convenience. Additionally, PCM does not require costly DID or trunks since it works entirely off signaling information originating or terminating within the telephony networks, providing mobile operators with an efficient and scalable solution.
“Phone number privacy has become a sensitive and serious issue across the globe,” Arshad Syed, CEO of Inovar, stated. “With that in mind, we designed a solution for evolving, enterprises in the new “sharing and service” economy and for which there are limitless use cases where efficient and inexpensive number protection is required.”
