Improved Delivery for Recently Ported Numbers

Powered by XConnect, NPQ allows carriers to verify a telephone number’s current network service provider.

Access Global Number Portability Data in Real-Time

As beneficial as it is for consumers to have the flexibility to switch between mobile carriers without changing their phone number, Mobile Number Portability (MNP) also poses potential challenges for carriers. Not only can there be hiccups in routing, but with regulators cracking down on telecom fraud, sending a call or text to the wrong place can have serious compliance consequences as well.

Fortunately for carriers and service providers, XConnect, A Somos Company, offers a powerful solution to help avoid the above. With Number Portability Query (NPQ), users gain access to a highly configurable and simple real-time query interface that can assist in validating and verifying a number’s network service provider and portability details (if any).

With a simple query to XConnect’s robust portability database, you can acquire a phone number’s current information including its current service provider and whether it’s been ported from the original number range holder.
