GSMA TAC Allocation

Device brand owners and manufacturers need the Type Allocation Code (TAC) to create the first 8 digits of the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI), the number that identifies each unique mobile device on all gsm networks. There are important rules that govern TAC allocation which can be found at

GSMA Device Database

With over 10,000 device models launched every year, keeping track of devices on networks and interrogating the devices’ characteristics is highly complex. GSMA Device Database identifies the manufacturer and model as well as other key characteristics of a mobile device from its TAC, thus benefiting many business applications.

GSMA Device Map

The GSMA allocated TAC together with the additional 100 device data characteristics and attributes provides a unique and rich level of insight to enable businesses to generate advanced analytics and operational metrics.

GSMA Device Check

GSMA Device Check provides up to 10 years’ of a device’s history as well as the device model information and capabilities. It gives you access to a comprehensive registry of device information which can benefit your business in a variety of ways.

GSMA Operator Blacklisting

The GSMA enables data about stolen devices to be exchanged between operators so they can block a device both in-country and internationally. As stolen devices are often tracked abroad, both national and international collaboration is required.

GSMA PathFinder

GSMA PathFinder, powered by Neustar is a real-time telephone number information service that authoritatively identies the world’s in-use fixed and mobile numbers by operator, corrected with updates from the 4.6 billion phone numbers, subject to portability.
