Infobip’s data center sets out to help businesses achieve increased efficiency of operations; provide fast and reliable networking; and access cloud technology designed to intelligently orchestrate all customer engagement activities through a flexible and scalable full stack communications platform.

Mobile Identity: Fast & Secure User Experience
In addition to the data center, Infobip also announces it will soon launch its Mobile Identity services in Indonesia, aimed at protecting customers’ data privacy, improving user-experiences, and increasing consumer engagement. The Mobile Identity service is a new generation of highly secured authentication, verification and identification services for enterprises to create customer experiences in a secure ecosystem for mobile subscribers.
By utilizing Infobip’s Mobile Identity services, enterprises can integrate Silent Mobile Verification (SMV), Sim-swap (SS), Know-your-customer (KYC) and Number Share solutions to their current operation workflow on a single API platform in a quick and simple manner. This service is built for enterprises that value security and for industries that require extra customer protection in their daily core operations.
In addition, Infobip targets to help mobile network operators create new revenue streams and make them available as a secure source for authenticating their subscribers with its in-house developed solution, iGate. With this solution, MNOs can skip the hassle and resource requirements in developing new APIs to enable the Mobile Identity service, allowing quicker turnarounds to provide the service to the market.
“Infobip has been an ardent advocate for MNOs with its Mobile Identity services built to provide a more secure environment for both enterprises and their mobile users. We are committed to expanding the coverage of the service with utmost security and authentication by working with numerous MNOs around the world. With the launch of Infobip’s ID1 data center in Indonesia, we are now in a strong position to offer more reliable service uptime and improved latency – all in compliance with global and local country data privacy regulations. We look forward to working closely with businesses in Indonesia to bring excellent CX and security to the public”, said Ante Pamukovic, VP Revenue APAC – Infobip.
The inauguration ceremony of the data center will be happening in August 2022 and it is expected that partners and clients will be given insights into harnessing the power of Infobip’s ID1 data center and improve their digital ecosystems.
