IMEI Number Plays An Important Role In Deterring Crime


We all know that each and every Mobile device on this Earth bears an International Mobile Equipment Identity. The International Mobile Equipment Identity known as IMEI number distinguishes the Mobile Devices from each other. IMEI Number is the source of secure, persistent and unique identification for the devices that contain a 3GPP Transceiver. IMEI, Device identity plays a significant role in deterring fraud by empowering the law enforcement agencies and mobile industries.

IMEI Number Plays An Important Role In Deterring Crime

IMEI numbers can serve for a variety of purposes from enabling the commercial transport of wireless devices to allowing governments to collect taxes appropriately. Together with all this, the device identity plays a significant role in deterring crime or fraud. Even though, the Customer support, warranty checks, counterfeit detection, compliance, and certification all rely on it. The IMEI Number helps all the Operators, consumers, retailers, customs officials, insurers, service providers, regulators, even recyclers to know which precise devices they are dealing with.  In addition to that, it also tells them where the device came from, and whether it was legitimately possessed or not.  Any mobile device which bears an improper IMEI can then be blocked from mobile networks by adding them to the GSMA IMEI Blacklist. In this way, the mobile industry can play a major role in crime deterrence.


In 2000, GSMA got authorized to allocate “Type Allocation Codes” to all 3GPP devices. The TAC comprises the first eight digits of the IMEI. In 2004, GSMA was formally appointed the Global Decimal Administrator. The first two digits of a TAC number indicate the relevant reporting body, while the remaining six digits identify the mobile equipment type itself.

IMEI Number

TAC and IMEI play a significant role by letting all the Mobile Network Operators know what types of devices are using their networks. When they get to know that how many devices are drawing on their infrastructure, and where, they plan coverage and service provision accordingly. It lets them deliver the seamless user experience that consumers now demand as standard. In this way, it helps them to plan their services accordingly ensuring the best experience for their customers.
