Luminati’s Mobile Proxy Network

What is a Mobile Proxy Network? Learn how to best utilize Mobile IPs here!

Tal Zilberman | Senior Business Manager

Luminati’s Mobile IPs Network consists of over 3 million real 3G/4G connections in multiple countries, cities, and carriers (ASNs) across the globe.

Mobile websites are unique as everything displayed from prices to advertisements, is target specific, and takes into account more user-data.

This data can include everything from the device you are using, the operating system you are running, which carrier you are on and more.

By using Luminati’s mobile proxy network, you can now view a site as an actual mobile user to collect carrier specific price promotions, check latency and ensure website performance on 3G or 4G connections.

Mobile Ip’s allow you to verify direct billing campaigns or app promotions by providing the ability to be seen as a real-user in a specific location, on a specific carrier, with a particular user-agent.

Now you can monitor security risks by checking real users and avoid phishing attempts by comparing the mobile data location to the IP location and verifying suspicious URLs.

While scraping, verifying and managing online assets, mobile IPs allow you to avoid captcha and other firewalls commonly found on their desktop counterparts. This is extremely useful for account management especially on social networks that are normally accessed by mobile phones.

As Luminati’s customers have said, “As a large data company, our core strategy is based on finding or gathering accurate data for our customers, adding value to them. This is how we boost our customer's business, by providing them with enhanced quality data they need to reach their goals. We are continuously learning about collecting accurate data and we have improved our skills in managing large amounts of data for our customers. We see it as a core process to our company’s success.”

This accuracy increases using Mobile 3G/4G IPs as they allow for the gathering of specific mobile data that is carrier and geo specific. The value of Luminati’s Mobile network comes from how we acquire our peers.

Our proprietary user-acquisition model ensures only real mobile IP connections across a variety of countries, devices, carriers and provides a truly diverse network for your data collection needs.

The Luminati SDK is a form of app monetization that allows app users to choose to become a peer in the Luminati network in return for an increased user experience such as an advertisement free app.

Whether you are advertising on mobile phones, apps or direct billing campaigns, taking part in e-commerce, price comparison or account management, you really should consider using a mobile proxy network.
