IPDR Management

IPDR Management

Introduction

With a tremendous surge in mobile data usage & shift in the telecom industry from voice to data, all service providers are moving towards an IP network that delivers voice, data, video & mobile applications. Therefore, to safeguard public from threats like cyber-crime, cyber bullying, cyber terrorism etc. & to help LEAs with their investigations, Regulatory Authorities across globe have recommend TSPs/ISPs to gather meta data information of their users which may help LEAs with their investigations & Intelligence generation.

Tracing IP addresses to their devices and their actual users can be very detrimental in investigating and fighting modern day crimes. In current scenario, with everyone leaving a digital footprint finding the source IP address, TCP port number, date and time of session can lead to criminals.

Therefore, service providers need an IPDR Management System / IPDR Retention in their network which complied with Government Norms by gathering and managing IPDR (Internet Protocol Detail Record) logs of the subscribers as per Govt. Regulation and help provide the data which can become the building block of LEAs’ investigations & intelligence generation.
