How does Operata find the ISP

Operata collects the WAN IP address and uses this to find the ISP and location, but how?

The database Operata uses to convert the IP address to the ISP is IP Stack (

The data this provides is detailed below, but not all made visible by Operata:

  • type: [example "ipv4"]

  • continent_code: [example "OC"]

  • continent_name: [example "Oceania"]

  • country_code: [example "AU"]

  • country_name: [example "Australia"]

  • region_code: [example "VIC"]

  • region_name: [example "Victoria"]

  • city: [example "Kinglake West"]

  • zip: [example 3757]

  • isp: "Bcd Networks Pty Ltd"

Note: For some ISP's the location listed is the head office, which may not represent the true location.
