[VoiceOps] Mobile vs. Landline Lookup

Hi Alex,


Thanks for your reply. Obviously my initial post lacked clarity, so let me try to fix that. 


The client is looking for a way to determine whether a phone number is mobile or landline. What is best way to determine that? 


Are Telcordia DBs the only game in town or are there easier, cheaper, better solutions? Is the method different for Canadian and US numbers? 


Thanks again for your reply and sorry about the lack of clarity in the initial post. 


Best Regards,

LNP dips work the same way for fixed and wireless.

Does anyone have any experience doing mobile vs. landline lookups for US and Canada? What would be the best way to do this? 


A client has asked us whether this can be done and to be frank, I am not sure how we would go about it with LNP implemented in both countries. So we are looking for some pointers… Any help is appreciated. 


Thanks in advance,
