In the ever-changing realm of digital innovation, Africa’s prominent Data and Marketing Technology company, Terragon, has taken center stage in reshaping the advertising landscape.
With a visionary approach that preempted the transformation of consumer data utilization, Terragon’s groundbreaking mobile advertising solution, ‘Adrenaline’, continues to set the precedent for privacy-driven marketing strategies within the African telco industry.
Unveiling Adrenaline at MWC 2015
The journey to revolutionizing advertising began in 2015, during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. It was on this global stage that Terragon unveiled ‘Adrenaline’ as Africa’s pioneering telco-data monetization platform.
According to Elo Umeh, CEO and Co-founder of Terragon, the unveiling of Adrenaline at the MWC was a ‘global first’ that demonstrated Africa’s potential for innovation. Umeh noted, “Innovation can indeed come out of Africa.”
Harnessing Mobile Phone Numbers as Unique Identifiers
At the heart of Terragon’s Adrenaline platform lies a profound understanding of the potency of mobile phone numbers as unique identifiers. The platform was ingeniously designed to bridge the gap between advertising demand and data supply, serving as a nexus for businesses, publishers, and telcos.
According to Ayodeji Balogun, Co-founder and CTO of Terragon, “By leveraging telco-data, Adrenaline empowers advertisers with near real-time customer insights needed to deliver more relevant, targeted, and effective advertising campaigns, and make effective business decisions.”
Convergence of Visions: Adrenaline and TrustPid
The fundamental principle shared by Adrenaline and TrustPid centers on harnessing the potential of telco networks as pivotal sources of consumer data. Balogun emphasizes the significance of leveraging telco data to empower advertisers with real-time insights for precise targeting and the creation of personalized campaigns.
This approach seamlessly aligns with the growing importance of data privacy and compliance within the dynamic digital advertising ecosystem.
Privacy-Compliant Data Processing
A distinctive feature that sets Terragon’s Adrenaline apart is its ability to process data within a robust privacy-compliant framework. Adrenaline empowers Telcos to monetize their data assets by granting privacy-compliant access to segmented subscribers.
This innovative data exchange empowers businesses with insights into customer behavior, preferences, and demographics, driving enhanced targeting and engagement strategies.
Capitalizing on Mobile Penetration
The proliferation of mobile phone usage across Africa has created a unique opportunity for telcos to harness mobile phone numbers as identifiers for consumers. With a mobile penetration rate exceeding 50% and users dedicating over 4 hours daily to their devices, the significance of personalized interactions through mobile channels becomes apparent.
Terragon’s adeptness at leveraging mobile phone numbers as key identifiers exemplifies its dedication to offering practical, privacy-focused solutions within a rapidly evolving digital landscape.

Terragon’s unwavering commitment to data privacy is evident in its steadfast adherence to global and regional data privacy regulations, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Nigerian Data Protection Regulation (NDPR). The platform’s stringent data encryption and anonymization practices underscore its dedication to safeguarding personal information.
