The finish line is near and the end in sight! As we edge closer to the full cutover for the SMS/800 Toll-Free Number (TFN) Registry from the current mainframe system to the new cloud-based system, there are a number of upcoming performance and timing changes that will provide higher throughput and reduced latency.
The following table shows you just how much the new system and API will increase speed and streamline transactions – specifically during the sparing hour – when the system is under its highest load. Web-Based Access (WBA) and Mechanized Graphical Interface (MGI) users will also benefit from the improved performance; however, they can expect an additional 50-100 milliseconds of latency over and above the below API metrics due to the use of adapters.
*Please note that timing observed by Somos testing is in seconds and does NOT account for latency related to network/internet speeds.
In addition to enhanced speeds, the SMS/800 TFN Registry will also implement new throttling limitations that will replace the existing Central Processing Unit (CPU) limit. The new throttling limit will be the same across all Resp Orgs to ensure fair and equitable access to the system.
At the June 24, 2019 full cutover, Resp Orgs can expect the following:
