Frequently Asked Questions

Our goal is to create a community where common software is shared in a decentralized architecture. This enables users of telephone numbers to attest information and leverage a single record with others in the chain of custody – all while protecting confidentiality and privacy.

What problems does TNID solve?

TNID provides a data superhighway between independent telco and industry databases, allowing permissioned information to be shared between enterprises, service providers and ultimately end-users. This streamlined method of communications enables businesses to easily manage identity issues, enable messaging and handle porting, 10DLC campaign registration and other telecom updates.

The solution can be expanded to solve issues relating to security, IOT, SIM cards and other common business issues. In short, it will help increase the overall success of business communications while greatly reducing, if not eliminating, fraud.

Does TNID require a community to be effective?

No. TNID can solve many of the challenges that come with information attestation, without requiring all parties in the “chain of custody” to be part of TNID. As more parties participate in the TNID community, additional efficiencies can be realized while creating new revenue opportunities.

Who “built” TNID?

TNID was built by telecommunications industry experts who are constantly testing and vetting new telecom technologies and keeping up with industry requirements.

Do I need to be an expert in blockchain to use TNID?

No. We take the complexity out of the technology and provide a simple solution for you to create and manage your source of truth via our API or user interface.

How can I deploy TNID?

Initially launched using Amazon Managed Blockchain, TNID allows you to choose which cloud service you prefer to run, as TNID is agnostic to cloud solutions.

Do I have to be a member of TNID?

No. While members can vote as a community on upcoming features, new industry requirements and new members who want to join the community, non-members can query and manage data within the network via GraphQL APIs and a lightweight front-end portal.
