3 Ready-to-Connect Universal Network APIs via True Mobile Network

  • SIM SWAP API is designed to minimize the risk of fraud and enhance security for businesses engaged in online transactions with their customers. It enables application developers or businesses to conveniently verify the most recent change of SIM card. This verification process ensures that sensitive information is only sent to the customer's mobile number if they are the rightful owner of the SIM card. Consequently, this feature instills greater confidence in various online transactions. Furthermore, the API allows businesses to ascertain the exact date and time when the SIM card was switched to another device. This functionality is particularly useful in safeguarding access to data and preventing unauthorized devices from infiltrating internal company systems in the event of a lost or stolen company device.
  • DEVICE LOCATION API is used to verify the location of the device and SIM card being used. This not only helps businesses improve the service experience, but also allows them to offer special privileges and promotions to customers in specific areas through their mobile phones. Additionally, it enhances security by detecting account fraud. It can identify suspicious activity when online transactions occur in unlikely locations, suggesting that they may not have been made by the actual account owner. Furthermore, it can be used to track the location of various devices such as sensors and IoT devices. This helps businesses efficiently manage, track, and inspect the large number of devices installed in different locations.
  • QUALITY ON DEMAND API caters to the requirements of businesses by utilizing the True 5G network to improve the streaming experience for customers. This applies to various sectors such as online gaming, content and media providers, as well as entertainment services. It also addresses the demands of the industrial sector by enabling real-time remote control of equipment, machines, drones, and vehicles. This reaffirms trust in the True 5G network's efficiency to deliver fast speed, low latency, and stable connectivity.
