The objective of our solution is to allow the management of a proprietary central equipment identification register. To achieve this, Sonoc takes the situation of both the operators and the regulator into account, so as to offer the best option, depending on the already-existing systems.


Since most operators already have detection systems and equipment identification registers (EIR), we use these as the basis for the deployment of our solution. Our system connects to them in order to aggregate all the IMSIs/IMEIs/MSISDNs from all the local operators into a single national IMEI database.


In the event one or more operators do not have the required resources, we also offer the option of installing the detection systems.


ADD and CEIR are key tools in the fight against many types of fraud that affect both stakeholders and consumers in the telecoms industry. The solution also provides regulators with valuable information about the mobile device population, market trends and consumer habits in a given country. Some operators use specific systems to detect the devices connected to their network and manage their own equipment identification register. The ADD/CEIR system is a central/master database to detect counterfeit devices, or those reported as stolen, and block them from all networks in the given country.
