[news release] Mobile Web technology specialist dotMobi and IP Intelligence and geolocation pioneer Digital Element today announced a strategic data partnership that will allow dotMobi to offer Digital Elementâs robust mobile carrier and connection type databases to its customers and further enhance Digital Elementâs mobile carrier and connection type identification capabilities.
DeviceAtlas provides its customers with highly accurate and detailed device intelligence. Under the partnership, dotMobi will also enable its DeviceAtlasÂ® customers to identify the country location, mobile carrier and connection type (WiFi or cellular) a mobile visitor is using based on IP address.
The ability to report carrier data, powered by Digital Elementâs NetAcuityÂ® technology, broadens DeviceAtlasâ offering with further information on the context of the user, as well as accurate information about the device. This is particularly useful for advertisers wanting to deliver their messages to a specific network to fulfill geographic and demographic targeting criteria. Furthermore, the ability to distinguish between WiFi and a cellular network is useful for delivering optimized content based on a userâs connection type.
The partnership with Digital Element is the latest in a series of strategic moves by dotMobi designed to enhance the development of DeviceAtlas by providing more dynamic information to its advertising and content-delivery customers. It follows the launch of client-side technology that detects user-configured browser and device settings as well as directly measuring device connection speeds in real time.
dotMobi has fully integrated Digital Elementâs mobile carrier intelligence data into DeviceAtlas. It is available as an additional option to all customers using the DeviceAtlas Enterprise API. A free trial is also available.
âdotMobi is committed to bringing our customers the intelligence they need to deliver optimized, targeted experiences on the web for any device type. The ability to identify the carrier helps us achieve that. As the original innovator in IP Intelligence and geolocation technology, Digital Element is the ideal partner for bringing carrier identification to DeviceAtlas,â said Eileen OâSullivan, COO at dotMobi.
