4 min. read

As robocalls continue to rise, it's important now more than ever to protect against fraudulent behavior in the telecommunications industry. With the risk of fraud at the forefront of inbound and outbound voice traffic, three influential services are combining efforts to bring trust back to the telecom space.

1Route, GBSD Tech, and AB Handshake are joining forces to make an international difference through innovative strategies, advanced technology, and intentional, forward-thinking collaboration with one goal in mind – to establish a world free of telecommunications fraud.

A Word From Management

"I am really excited about this partnership. Together, AB Handshake, 1Route, and GBSDTech will scale our portfolios and expand our footprint to prevent fraudulent traffic in the telecom space worldwide." says Vasily Birulin, MD of AB Handshake.

"The telecom industry has lived with the storm of fraud for long enough. While in the thick of a storm, most people don't realize that above that storm is sunshine and blue skies. This collaboration between 1Route, GBSDTech, and AB Handshake is a much-needed solution to bring our industry out of the storm. Together we will bring trust back to voice and remove the red button." says Jeffrey V. Ross, CCO of 1Route.

"By collaborating with 1Route and AB Handshake, we will bridge the great divide between countries, perspectives, and technologies to provide one robust compatible solution for telcos globally." says Mike Powers, MD of GBSD Technologies.

Guaranteed Fraud Prevention

The three powerhouse protection companies are joining together their leading technologies and progressive efforts to build a logical bridge between the U.S. STIR/SHAKEN community, AB Handshake community, and the rest of the world. Their joint efforts will allow operators to cross-validate international traffic traversing between countries and continents.

With this partnership, the evergrowing voice traffic atmosphere can continue to move forward without worrying about the risk of invasive activity and extortion.

Together, we will remove the red button and end fraud on a global scale.

About AB Handshake

AB Handshake is a Miami-based corporation established in 2020 by a team of professionals with decades of experience in telecom as well as expertise in successfully developing and establishing innovative hi-tech companies.

What started as an idea for preventing voice fraud via call-validation turned into a universal fraud-prevention solution for all types of networks. By cross-validating the A and B call registry data on individual calls in real-time, the AB Handshake solution detects all forms of voice fraud and blocks fraudulent calls before they connect. The solution guarantees 100% protection from all types of voice fraud with zero false positives.

The ITU CxO meeting 2023 findings suggest that AB Handshake's real-time call validation is crucial in today's telecom landscape, offering a proactive, industry-supported solution against the escalating threat of voice traffic fraud. Unlike outdated threshold-based rules or overly isolated alternatives, the AB Handshake call validation solution is what industry experts have been waiting for.
