Telefonica Global Solutions has extended its existing anti-piracy operations in Latin America. The Fraud Prevention team at Telefonica has supplemented its existing intelligence sources with NAGRA Anti-Piracy services, to identify, monitor and display pirate activity. It also uses sophisticated AI-powered analytics to alert Telefonica to illicit patterns of activity.
Telefonica’s Global Solutions Centre (GSC) is co-located at Telefonica’s Madrid headquarters, and operates two Global Solutions Centres in Sao Paulo and Miami, which provides ISO-certified contingency facilities for continuity of services in case something happens in any of the centres. GSC is staffed by 75 specialized experts in constant coordination with its global operations staff of more than 1,000.
NAGRA’s anti-piracy solution is designed for media and entertainment piracy use-cases, supplementing content protection solutions that include watermarking and other elements of NAGRA’s NAGRA Active Streaming Protection framework already deployed at Telefonica.
