Device Registry Overview

The use of stolen mobile phones and counterfeit or unauthorized mobile devices is on the rise. Unfortunately, current mobile device tracking solutions, such as those involving traditional Equipment Identity Registers (EIRs) that tend to rely on static data, are not always able to significantly deter mobile theft and its fast-moving criminals.

Device Registry can help. A next generation centralized registry of mobile device data, it maintains extensive and constantly updated information on handsets, including IMEI-IMSI-MSISDN triplets for all networks, with cross-references to the national number portability database. As such, it helps operators provide more effective anti-theft services, such as immediate device blocking when a SIM card is replaced, and it enables powerful 'fingerprinting' and analytics capabilities.

Device Registry data can be accessed by all mobile service providers within a country, as well as by law enforcement. The result can include not only reduced mobile theft and an advantage in the pursuit of criminals, but also an increase in the collection of customs duties and tax revenue, as the ability to circumvent these fees via counterfeit phones is lessened.
