IP Geolocation Decisioning Data

Our IP GeoPoint data packages have been created to make it easy for you to select the foundational location decisioning data you need - while giving you an easy way to add insight as your data needs change. With over 40 data fields, and global insight into both IPv4 and IPv6* addresses, look no further than Neustar IP GeoPoint data to support your fraud prevention, content distribution, security and regulatory compliance/licensing applications.

Location Packages

Select one of two data packages:

Location Basics. This package provides you with basic, yet powerful, decisioning data at the country level. In addition, we provide you with a unique "confidence factor" that reflects a relative measure of certainty that the user is in the location identified in the country field. The possible values range from 0 (null) to 99. The higher the value, the greater the likelihood that the user is in the assigned country.

Location Advanced. The Location Advanced data package provides you with country level data fields included in the Location Basics package, plus State (with State Confidence Factor), Postal Code (with Postal Code Confidence Factor), Lat/Lon, Time Zone, Line Speed and Routing Type. We also include DMA and MSA data for the most comprehensive location data available.

Location Basics

  • Country Code
  • Country Confidence Factor

Location Advanced

Details Packages

Select one or both:

Proxy Details. Knowing how a device is attempting to access your website or corporate resources, and if it is using a risky internet connection, is critical to the success of your business. If the device is connecting via an anonymous proxy, you may want to flag the IP address or block access outright. The Proxy Details package provides you with the rich connection data you need to protect your business including Hosting Facility, Anonymizer and Proxy details (Proxy Last Detected, Proxy Type, Proxy Level) and IP Routing Type.

Org Details. Understanding what organization is behind an IP address can be critical to your success from both a security and marketing perspective. With the decisioning data fields included in the Org Details package, you can parse incoming IP traffic not only by location but also by domain so that you can ensure your message or offer gets to the correct customer. With this data you can ensure an offer developed for a specific organization (e.g. university) is delivered to the students at that university. Conversely, you can block specific organizations or type of organization from accessing your sensitive data or proprietary resources.

Proxy Details

  • Anonymizer Status
  • Proxy Last Detected
  • Proxy Type
  • Proxy Level
  • Hosting Facility

Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6)

What is IPv6?

Version 6 of the IP address specification (IPv6) was first proposed as a draft in 1994 and published in 1995. The draft was accepted as a standard in 1998.

IPv4 vs IPv6

The IPv6 address space is huge, with 340 undecillion addresses. This is roughly 10 billion times larger than the IPv4 address space, which itself has over 4 billion IP addresses. The reason the comparison is important is that while it is possible to pull information about every IPv4 address on a daily basis, it is not possible to do this for the allocated IPv6 address space. It is simply too large. This creates a set of decisioning data challenges for IPv6 geolocation that do not exist for IPv4.

To address this issue, Neustar utilizes additional sources of data that result from our probing the Internet. This data, when ingested into our patented machine learning system, is evaluated by a set of rules that compares and weighs data that correlates, producing a single city, state, country answer.

Does Neustar IP Intelligence provide IPv6 geolocation?

Yes, Neustar began collecting IPv6 address allocation information in 2015 and released our first beta IPv6 data to customers in 2017. We currently have coverage of over 99% of the allocated IPv6 address space and are shipping high quality production data to all subscribed customers.

How can I get IPv6 geolocation data?

IPv6 data can be made available as part of your IP GeoPoint subscription
