COCUS AG : cts.businesswire.com/ct/CT?id=smartlink&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww .. , a German telecommunication consultancy and solution provider, today announced the deployment of Digital Element’s : cts.businesswire.com/ct/CT?id=smartlink&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww .. pioneering IP geolocation technology, specifically to enable a large telecommunications client to determine the location of a person calling on a Voice Over IP (VOIP) phone to support emergency call routing, prevent fraudulent service usage and fulfill regulatory requirements on location detection.

COCUS was tasked by one of its global telephony clients to design and implement the solution into their respective end-to-end architecture and ensure optimum IP geolocation for all access channels.

COCUS chose Digital Element’s IP geolocation intelligence technology as part of a solution that automatically and dependably determines the location of a potentially nomadic device

by IP address, allowing, for example, the call to be routed to the nearest emergency service centre, in case of emergency calls.

COCUS and their telephony client have deployed the new service in Germany with plans to roll out the service to other countries’ networks.

Elmar Kinkel, Chief Operating Officer, COCUS, commented: “Mission critical to the service is the fast, dependable and precise location of potentially nomadic customer premise equipment to ensure service effectiveness of emergency call routing or network update provisioning.

We therefore needed to be sure that we were working with IP data that is as accurate and frequently refreshed as possible. We selected Digital Element based on solution trials because they have the most accurate and granular IP location data available globally. In addition, Digital Element’s data is refreshed more frequently than that of any other IP data supplier. Digital Element also provides excellent technical support to resolve any critical issues that may occur.”


Founded in 1999, Digital Element is the industry pioneer of IP geolocation technology and its NetAcuity Edge technology has revolutionised the IP geolocation space. By combining IP routing infrastructure analysis with anonymous location insight gleaned from a network of global commercial partners, NetAcuity Edge provides the most detailed, hyperlocal dataset available worldwide today that maintains user anonymity and complies with the highest standards of end-user privacy.

Kate Owen, Digital Element’s Managing Director, Europe, said: “COCUS are using our IP geolocation data in a creative and unique way to solve a real world problem. Over recent years many users have switched from landlines to VOIP, and the resulting limited access to emergency services for many VOIP users is unacceptable. We are delighted to be helping resolve this important issue.”


COCUS joins Digital Element’s other high-profile clients in the telecommunications sector, including Tiscali, Level 3 Communications, F5 Networks, AOL, Microsoft, AT&T, Verizon, Earthlink, VeriSign and many others.
