    System and method for non-disruptive mitigation of VOIP fraud
    Abstract:

    A system and method are disclosed herein for providing mitigation of VoIP PBX fraud while having minimal impact on authorized VoIP PBX users. The method includes a system for detecting potential fraud based on multiple and configurable fraud indicators as well as historical data, which can be customized for individual users or groups, which in turn can trigger the other parts of the system to mitigate fraud. The system can terminate in-process calls that are potentially fraudulent and reset the network access credentials for the user accounts or device(s) that have been potentially compromised. The system can use historical data to block further calls from the compromised user accounts or devices to specific locations where the presumed fraudulent calls were directed. In a further aspect, the system and method can automatically reset the network access credentials for authorized users with minimal down time.

    As far as defections, you may NOT have noticed, but this board is not available to everyone anymore. There is a new Yahoo format board (which is just as bad as this one functionally). There are many other good outlets for posts, I'll let you figure all this out, ways to get to it, and others. I have no trouble.

    Systems and methods for matching call detail records for the same communication generated by different elements of an IP telephony system
    Abstract:

    Call detail records (CDRs) that are generated by different elements of an IP telephony system in connection with the same communication can be matched to one another using timing information contained in the CDRs. Other information in addition to timing information, and which is present in two CDRs relating to the same communication may be used in conjunction with timing information to match CDRs from the same communication. Also, information relating to the type of flow path that a communication follows through the elements of an IP telephony system may also be recorded in a final CDR that is created for each communication.

  • In Nexmo Acquisition, Vonage Reaches for the Cloud -- and Twilio
    By Anders Keitz Follow | Aug 15, 2016 | 9:00 AM EDT

    Twilio (TWLO) is among the hottest stocks in this market. But it is not the only game in town when it comes a cloud computing platform that can integrate text with other offerings.

    There's another smaller, company that is growing quickly that you probably never heard of because, improbably, it's owned by a real down-and-out company: Vonage (VG) . Nexmo, which Vonage bought for $230 million in cash and stock, may end up being the son of Twilio.

    Vonage has been around since the end of the dot-com bubble, best known for providing business and residential telecommunication services. You might remember commercials featuring a talking ear and mouth or another in which Vonage "Betterfied" your home phone service.

    But now it is moving toward cloud communication services with its acquisition of Nexmo, the second-largest Communications Platform as a Service ("CPaaS") company in the world. Essentially, Nexmo provides communication application program interfaces (API) to let other people and businesses integrate various forms of communications, such as messaging, into their own applications.

    This means that Nexmo competes directly against the industry leader, Twilio

    Already Vonage has seen an impact on its income statement from the $230 million acquisition. Nexmo is responsible for $8 million in revenue in the second quarter, which is only about a 10th of Vonage's enterprise revenue of $86 million. The company reported total revenue of $234 million for the quarter. The company also said on an Aug. 2 earnings call that Nexmo revenue is projected to be in the high $80 million range for the full year 2016.

  • The analysts agree, Profitable Vonage is undervalued, they have upped target prices.

    Let's look at the P/S:

    The competitors:
    Twillio P/S 19.0
    EGHT P/S 5.5
    RNG P/S 5.1

    Vonage P/S 1.4

    If Vonage was valuated like it's unprofitable peers:

    $100M Revenues would be Valuated like Twillio = $1.9B
    $191M Revenues would be Valuated like EGHT and Ring = $1.0B
    $623M Revenues (non business) would be Valuated at1.4X ?? = $875M

    $3.775B market cap. $17.68 a Share

    Oppenhiemer analyst Timothy Horan commented, "VG TRADES AT A LARGE DISCOUNT TO PURE-PLAY BUSINESS PEERS."

    "Here we note, it seems to us, that either shares of TWLO are being materially overvalued by the market or shares of Vonage with Nexmo are being materially undervalued," analyst Robert Routh of FBN wrote in a note.

    Yet the Analyst's Target prices are less than half of that $17.68. Vonage has more Revenues, FCF, EBITDA. and Profits of its three competitors combimed, Their Market Caps combined are 5X Vonages.

    More upside at VONAGE?

  • Vonage only reported 1/3 ($8M) of Nexmo's revenues this quarter.

    Systems and methods for reducing signaling in an internet protocol telephony system

    Abstract:
    A telephony communication setup request sent from a telephony device to an element of an IP telephony system includes a first encrypted code that is generated using one or more data items that are specific to the telephony device. The element of the IP telephony system receiving the setup request obtains the same data items locally and creates a second encrypted code. If the second code matches the first encrypted code, the telephony device and/or the setup request are authenticated, and the element of the IP telephony system proceeds to setup the requested telephony communication.

    Ahh Jasiop, you have been defecating on my posts a long time now.

    NOW you post, "Your insanity is reaching new highs as well as mine trying to bring you down to reality."

    You Jasiop will bring me to reality???

    My POST WAS FACTUAL, not insane. In FACT it was the same post as the one I posted LAST TIME WE SAW A GOLDEN CROSS, with this line added:

    "THE LAST GC for VG happened Jan 13, 2015 - PPS went from $4.05 to $7.42 (83%) in 10 months."

    So you must think all the Gains then and before were INSANE?

    Each subsequent gain after the golden cross, over the following months was INSANE???

    And here is how you answered THAT POST on Jan 13th 2015, that subsequently saw an 83% gain over 9 1/2 months::

    jasiop • Jan 14, 2015 9:11 PM Who knows for how long in this market environment "golden cross" will be able to push VG upwards.Or maybe the share price is just following EGHT's pps trend just like it has been for last 5 years/compare 3,6,12 month charts/. After all my speculation about probable technical broad market correction with S@P500 at 2000 level has not diminished yet so even magic golden cross formation may not help much despite highly anticipated/as always/ excellent earnings report.
    jp

    You are a real genius Jasiop!!! You are really Special, Jasiop.

    BLESS YOUR HEART, Jasiop

  • ATTENTION! Within Two days, Vonage will produce a 50/200DMA Golden Cross Formation

    The Golden Cross is mostly used with longer term moving averages.

    It?s an especially strong signal when the 50 dma crosses above the 200 dma. MR MARKET's signal of extreme Bullishness

    Technicians, and computer programs (MR MARKET) will see this GC as a sign that the market has turned in favor of the stock.

    This GC will be the fourth in VG history.

    THE LAST GC for VG happened Jan 13, 2015 - PPS went from $4.05 to $7.42 (83%) in 10 months

    Previous to that Oct. 2012 - PPS went from $2.25 to $4.75 (111%) in 16 months

    Previous to that August 2009 - PPS went from $.60 to $5.35 (891%) in 16 months

    Just in the last 10 weeks, we have seen VG move up from $3.90 to $5.76 (+48%) to set up this Golden Cross

    NOW AT $5.76, the GC Will HAPPEN Within two days!

    I have covered how the comparison values show, profitable, huge FCF generating Vonage is hugely undervalued to it's unprofitable direct competition, 8X8 inc., RingCentral, and Twillio in previous posts.

    Will we see another up move? WE SHOULD! (arguing with the market my #$%$

  • dgroves0 dgroves0 Jul 27, 2016 4:16 PM Flag

    "arguing with the market." ?????

    This is up 50% in the last two months! Two analysts have RECENTLY put $8 targets on it.

    AND it is way undervalued when compared to it's direct competition.

    More Revenues than the competition combined, profitable unlike that competition, and 1/5th the Market Cap.

    SEEMS like there will be a lot more upside, in the coming months,

    SO SORRY, if that offends some readers.
