Telephone number ID and porting information services launch for law enforcement and businesses that must comply with federal TCPA regulations
BRIDGEWATER, N.J., March 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- iconectiv, the next Local Number Portability Administrator (LNPA) for the United States, announced the successful transition of services providing telephone number identification and porting information to law enforcement, public safety agencies and businesses that must comply with the nation's Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). The services successfully transitioned on March 4, 2018.
iconectiv is the next administrator of the nation's Number Portability Administration Center (NPAC), the largest database of ported telephone numbers in the world. The services initiated yesterday rely on data from the NPAC and are the first to transition to iconectiv. The remaining services for Service Providers, Service Bureaus and Providers of Telecom-Related Services transition between April 8 and May 20, 2018.
"The successful cutover of these critical services is a significant milestone and marks the start of the final phase of this transition effort," said Richard Jacowleff, President and CEO of iconectiv. "Access to number portability data via a new, modern and highly secure system is crucial to the daily operations of law enforcement and public safety agencies and to ensuring regulatory compliance for businesses."
The NPAC supports number portability, which allows customers to keep their telephone number when switching service providers. Law enforcement and public safety agencies use these services to verify the service provider of record and porting history of telephone numbers, as well as to identify law enforcement points of contact at each service provider. Businesses that must comply with TCPA regulations rely on the service to verify when a telephone number changes between wireline and wireless, avoiding serious penalties that can occur if they fail to comply with requirements, such as Do Not Call lists.
