EIR Disables Stolen Wireless Gear
The Mavenir Equipment Identity Register (EIR) solution for North American mobile-service providers was designed to help them comply with the recently announced FCC mandate to disable devices from use in any network once reported stolen (for more information, click here). â€¨â€¨
“Mavenir’s EIR is unique in the industry because it seamlessly offers value-added service options that allow mobile-service providers to offer new applications and features,” the Texas-based company says. “It is the first EIR that supports both GSM UMTS and LTE.
”â€¨â€¨In North America, one leading LTE service provider already live with Mavenir’s LTE EIR, it adds.â€¨â€¨
In addition to the basic capability to blacklist stolen devices, Mavenir’s EIR allows the mobile-service provider to understand the patterns of device usage in the network and to target new services to subscribers with the appropriate equipment: “This online but anonymous reporting from the EIR platform can be a valuable tool to understand the geographic and demographic patterns of device usage.” â€¨
