XConnect partners with IDT Global to fight robocalling in the US

XConnect, a Somos company providing numbering intelligence solutions, has partnered with IDT Global, the wholesale voice and SMS division of IDT Corporation, to utilize XConnect’s RealNumber DNO database that contains over 6 billion local and toll-free numbers in North America.

With strengthened global number intelligence, IDT Global can enhance its US customers’ voice experience with better protection from fraudulent calls. 

“Fraudsters are constantly adapting their schemes to target telephone users. Spoofing and illegal robocalling are increasingly commonplace as robocallers mimic numbers from legitimate organizations,” said Peter Broes, Director of Product Development at IDT Global.

RealNumber DNO includes numbers which should never be used for call origination, helping to prevent telecom fraud on known inbound-only and invalid numbers. With access to RealNumber DNO, IDT Global can identify certain invalid calls and increase the quality of its traffic.

“Robocalling impacts the entire telecoms value chain from carriers to consumers. Service providers are having to re-evaluate how they verify the identity of calls that they route and take additional steps to keep on top of compliance requirements and deliver a first-class experience to customers,” said Tim Ward, VP Number Information Services at XConnect.
