[VoiceOps] Fast LNP Porting

I just wanted to point out one thing because for someone knew it's incredibly
confusing since there are so many moving parts to all this. The AOCN can only do
BIRRDS database entries (aka the LERG). Porting is done through the NPAC system,
and there are actually several options you can choose from to port a number. If
you have your own NXXs assigned to you, you can choose from any of the porting
methods below: (Which one you select will depend on how much you plan to port
each month). 
NPAC helpdesk - has no monthly fee but costs $15 per port out and $30 per port
NPAC LTI - you have direct access to the NPAC database for a flat rate and do
all the ports yourself (if you port in more than 13 numbers per month it's
Service Bureau - they provide a web interface and you do the ports yourself.
They charge a flat rate monthly fee for a minimum number of ports and if you go
over  the maximum number of ports you pay an additional charge per port.)
3rd Party SOA provider - they apply for the NPAC LTI service on your behalf and
issue all the port orders for you
Hope that makes the picture a little clearer!
