[VoiceOps] Fast LNP Porting

I misspoke regarding the AOCN; that's a function of BIRRDS/LERG for the
routing of LRN/codes/thousand blocks to tandems/switches, but is not used
for individual numbers. Serves me right for handling email before coffee :)

You need someone with SOA access to NPAC, which should be any CLEC or LEC.
You'll first need to make sure the business you're dealing with actually
operates in the LATA of the number to be ported, otherwise they will be
doing LNP through some larger upstream carrier; e.g. Brand X CLEC with
connectivity in some LATA might use Level 3 or Bandwidth.com to service
markets outside of their own tandem interconnects. In this case you're at
the mercy of the smaller guy's turnaround plus the upstream carrier's LNP

Expect there to be some charge for LNP, since carriers do have to pay for
their own use of NPAC at some point, plus the human labor involved in
processing LSR, concurrence, provisioning, etc. You might get a cost break
if porting many numbers at once, maybe 50 or more.

Even when carriers have arranged for concurrence in real time (e.g. porting
between major wireless carrier), callers are still at the mercy of their
own carrier and intermediate carriers updating the LRN information, which
might not happen until that night or next business day.
