Number Context / HLR Lookup

HLR Lookup is a service to check the validity of a mobile number and identify the networks that each number is subscribed to. Most importantly, it helps to check if the phone is still active in terms of numbers validity, barred, original network name, ported number to other mobile network and etc.

HLR works best when you wish to clean your database. Hence, you can significantly reduce your marketing costs by weeding out bad or inactive numbers – ensuring your messages are successfully sent to the target group.

With Number Context, you can determine:

  • which numbers are currently active
  • is the mobile number in roaming
  • is the mobile number ported or not
  • the optimal route for messages and voice
  • the type of number (e.g. landline, machine-to-machine, mobile etc.)
