Number Portability (NP)

Fixed-line local number portability (LNP) and 2G/3G/4G/5G mobile number portability (MNP) are facts of life in today’s global networks. Carriers and operators experience both cost and quality problems as they deal with routing calls and messages to the wide range of ported numbers they must support.

Managing number portability is further complicated by the increasing complexity of maintaining multiple generations of network technology simultaneously, each with their own number portability needs and access technologies.

The solution to all of this lies in simplifying number portability by centralizing the network solution for it  and then using this single source of truth to discover, in advance of routing, if a given dialed number (fixed, 3G, 4G or even 5G) has been ported. This allows a call, session, or message to that number to be routed accurately.
