PT enables carriers to comfortably address Number Portability (NP) mandates in their region. Carriers and service providers must undergo an upgrade in technical programming of their network infrastructure to successfully deploy this mandated service.
One of the primary objectives of NP is to empower subscribers with the ability to change their Network Operator while retaining their original Directory Number. This significantly impacts carriers on a regional and global basis as the traditional destination of a number now becomes a virtual address as the Directory Number can no longer be associated with a specific service provider or a locale.
This affects not just billing and routing schema but also requires the addition of databases, Service Order Management systems, and procedures for enabling and monitoring the porting process.
PT's Number Portability solutions equip carriers with advanced capabilities to meet their challenges on time and under budget.
