The product works through a simple interface via a REST API (“web API”), providing brands the intelligence to optimize customers’ SMS routing, improve data quality, clean contact databases and reduce costs. NLS currently provides detailed results for more than 40 countries, and mBlox will continue expanding its portfolio to additional countries. The full commercial launch of the product is expected in early Q2.

- Information about the current and original operator for the mobile number
- Number correction in returning a normalized number

- Type of number (e.g. landline, machine-to-machine, mobile, P2A number, voicemail service, virtual private network and VOIP)
