We've got an internal tool that lets my NOC staff query extended LRN on
numbers. They use this for checking the numbers current carrier, Verifying
a number after it ports (In or out)..etc. This same tool also pulls CNAM
from a few sources so they can easily test "Wrong caller ID" tickets.
Does anyone have any good leads on someone that has a good non-cached LRN
We've tried two thus far with poor results.
1. "CallWithUs", Real time results, But cached for 24 hours after the
first request. So if we wanted to check a number more then once a day, We
get the same results.
2. ThinQ. Results returned are either cached, Or perhaps outdated.
Querying a number after it ports returns the old LRN. Results do not update
until 24 hours after port. Since we have a decent bit of traffic on ThinQ,
And a decent relationship with them I opened a ticket to see if it could be
a adjusted. First was told that LRN takes 24 hours to update. And that was
normal. I pushed back on the obvious canned and incorrect response and they
"made some changes" which did nothing. Finally they admitted they could not
return real-time results.
Many of my upstream carriers are using Syniverse as their LRN source. So I
reached out to them. Found my volume (~20 queries a day) is too low for
them. And they don't offer any type of HTTP API, Understandably on both
