Anam Technologies, a leading mobile messaging software solutions provider for mobile operators, announced today they have been selected to provide its Anti-Spam solution to Tele2, an alternative mobile operator. The service was selected by Tele2 to filter out unsolicited SMS messages. The service blocks messages with alphanumeric and short sender IDs that are not sent by Tele2 Russia partners or preferred SMS aggregators.

Anam’s advanced filtering engine detects spamming; spoofing, faking and spam content and prevents it from reaching a customer’s mobile phone, therefore improving a user’s experience, reducing levels of churn and protecting the operator’s network. Following the implementation of Anam’s product, Tele2 saw a dramatic decrease in the number of customer complaints regarding unwanted and junk SMS messages, down 45% between the period November 2013 to February 2014.

Tele2 launched operations in Russia in 2003 and currently offers its mobile services to over 23.7 mn subscribers in 42 Russian regions. Following integration with Rostelecom’s mobile assets, the new federal operator will increase the number of penetrated regions to 60. Alongside the Anti-Spam solution, Anam is providing Tele2 with an innovative Black List service, which allows subscribers to block specific numbers that can include unwanted short numbers in a list, as well as the send names and DEF numbers.

“Customer service is our top priority at Tele2 and being able to effectively identify and block unwanted spam messages from ever being received by our subscribers has been a key goal for us,” said Pavel Chunikhin, Tele2 Russia Product Director. “Following the implementation we’ve seen customer complaints about SMS spam drop significantly, which tells us that we are able to effectively protect our customers and provide the best service possible.”

“Spam is becoming an increasing problem for mobile operators with many seeing unwanted messages being terminated on their network. SMS messaging is still a highly trusted method of communication and therefore protecting subscribers from spam needs to be a top priority for mobile operators,” commented Louise O’Sullivan, CEO of Anam Technologies. “We’re delighted to have begun working with Tele2 Russia, who has recognised that protecting their network and subscribers is key. Our solution helps them to block all unwanted SMS that isn’t sent by Tele2 Russia, their partners and SMS aggregators, effectively closing off their network to spammers.”
