Location Infrastructure Analytics Solutions

Skyhook offers direct access to its global location database to help internet service providers (ISPs), carriers, mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs), and similar groups assess network infrastructure strength. Our massive library of resolved location requests can provide visual insights into network reliability, coverage, security, and more.

Applications & Use Cases

Skyhook observes the behaviors of device IPs in designated areas to empower ISPs, carriers, and mobile security businesses to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the networks on which they operate. Government or regulatory organizations can use Skyhook to assess network performance and verify claims made by carriers and ISPs. Explore related use cases for:

Technical Advantages

Skyhook delivers location data for network analysis in two ways: either as data segments provided directly to in-house analytics teams to perform their own models, or as a geohashed coverage map of Cell ID summary observations, which visually represents network infrastructure by subdividing the globe into individual tiles. Either approach reveals actionable information about network reliability, security, and coverage.

Summary observations provide cellular coverage assessments and signal strength to create an overall signal map that highlights coverage robustness.


Cellular tower and access point location data provides truly global observations across multiple network types.
