The entity 'Bypass Fraud' is also known as ‘SIM Box Fraud’ or ‘Grey Routing’. The ‘Grey Market’ is mainly the outcome of ‘Voice’ traffic over the Internet, occurring when the Operator does not have adequate safeguards to stop the illegal routing of calls. The objective of the grey route operator is to bypass the International gateway using a SIM Box. Bypass fraud brings mobile traffic into a country and subsequently disguises it to appear as domestically originated traffic. Grey routes have become more prevalent in the last few years as a result of the increase in mobile voice traffic and available technology to deploy mobile network bypass processes. Bypass still exists on fixed line networks, however as stated above, the use of SIM Box Fraud has greatly increased due to higher mobile voice traffic, profitability, and ease of SIM Box Bypass deployment. With this setup, SIM Box owners are able to compete with carriers in wholesale markets where the SIM Box owner’s cost is much lower, resulting in major revenue losses for mobile carriers and their shareholders.
