The solution supports device registration for long-term evolution (LTE) smartphones and other LTE-connected devices and enables communications service providers (CSPs) to connect to the Central Equipment Identity Register (CEIR), the global registry of blacklisted devices maintained by the GSMA, it said in a release.

CSPs committed to combating handset theft and improvingcustomer service are looking to implement databases to disable lost and stolen mobile devices, it added.

By disabling the devices and keeping them from operating on mobile networks around the world, CSPs can protect consumers and help reduce criminals' incentive for theft.
