Our Story

As a pioneer in Caller ID solutions for landline network operators, we learned firsthand the value that subscribers place on trusting their communications. For mobile, our enhanced caller identification and call management solutions expand on that foundation by providing relevant context to incoming calls or text messages - just when you need it the most - giving subscribers a better way to trust their mobile communications. Whether it’s a consumer using our service to identify a malicious robocaller or it’s an enterprise using our service to create a trusted engagement with their customers, Cequint is changing the way we connect with people on mobile phones.

We've worked closely with the world's leading mobile operators, device manufacturers and network equipment providers to tightly integrate our patented enhanced caller identification and call management features, delivering end-to-end cloud-based solutions that empower identity and facilitate trust in personal and business communications.
