[VoiceOps] Fast LNP Porting

We are directly connected to the NPAC and do all of our own native porting in house as well as porting for others.  It’s important to note that virtually all non-wireless carriers these days have various excuses for why no port is ever simple anymore, to get around the one-day porting rule.  It used to be, a single number porting made it a simple port.  Not true anymore; you can pretty much count on any non-wireless port being considered complex from an LNP perspective.  We can generally still get it done in 3 to 5 business days, but you have to be very organized and know what the specific requirements of each carrier are before you submit the order to them.

Also want to note the simple versus complex port aspect, too.


“Even providers who use manual processes, if there are no errors or issues with validations, and it is a simple port, the FCC has mandated that the request be completed within one business day.”

Porting requires concurrence from the losing carrier to complete, which ultimately happens as an LRN update in the NPAC. Companies with direct access to NPAC can do this the quickest,  otherwise they contract with an AOCN to handle the NPAC or use a bigger carrier, which can add delays. 

So long as you have the correct LSR information when submitting the port, concurrence should happen within a day.  Ultimately the losing and gaining carriers both contribute to the turnaround time. 

Check out our wholesale services. We can do porting for voice, toll free and SMS.

Is there some way to port numbers extremely fast away from major landline providers like Verizon, AT&T, Comcast, etc? I met someone long ago that said they were able to port a number from anywhere in like one business day. If I remember right they mentioned something about being a cellular CLEC or something similar. I know porting in the cellular world is a same day kind of thing, but why not on the landline side? 


Is there some wholesaler out there that doesn't charge and arm and leg to port numbers?
