Device Recognition Enables an International Telecom Provider to Better Understand its Customers

Staying connected and accessing the internet is a vital part of our lives. That’s why telecom providers are invaluable today. They provide connectivity to private and business consumers. They offer countless other possibilities, such as access to news, learning, and economy-related activities like online shopping and telework. Because of this, telecom organizations are usually the single point of contact for anything on the network. As such, they require a vast amount of data to support their customers. Lansweeper’s Device Recognition technology enables many telecom providers to understand what devices are being used on their networks. It allows them to provide a better customer experience through visibility and control.

In this customer story, we explore a market leading telecoms provider headquartered in Europe. With over 30 million mobile customers, our customer provides 4G and 5G network coverage, devices, and hardware for both home and corporate consumers. 

The Challenge

  • The customer needed to create household personas with details on devices being used in the home
  • They initially pursued using network traffic patterns and analysis to predict the devices used in each household, which was not returning exact device listings, but categorical listings instead
  • In-house device identification methods required significant investment to keep up to date with the ever-changing landscape of devices, and returning “generic devices” would not be feasible
"The modern household is changing - each has its unique blend of devices and ways of consuming data, entertainment, and interacting with other households. We needed a way to offer a personalized service to each of our customers so that it was meaningful and proactive."
