“Telephone number porting is a key element for our product in our customer’s eyes”, said Bob Barnes, VP of Product Marketing and Sales.

Today, NextUC announced the release of telephone number porting for its customers on its Cloud Lync product. This service allows customers to move existing telephone numbers from other service providers like AT&T, Verizon and others to NextUC to retain historic relationships associated to those telephone numbers.

“Telephone number porting is a key element for our product in our customer’s eyes”, said Bob Barnes, VP of Product Marketing and Sales. “This single feature allows businesses to move more freely to our service without any restrictions.”

The incumbent carrier is legally bound to assist in the move of telephone numbers from their network to other networks based on the Telecommunications Act of 1996. One of the key features of this act was the assignment of ownership of telephone numbers to the customer and not any single carrier.

NextUC’s Lync product takes another big step forward with this service addition. Businesses can now take advantage of all of the market leading Lync ( based team collaboration tools like Web Conferencing (, Audio Conferencing, Presence Management, Chat, Integrated Mobile ( experiences and more, and keep the historic telephone numbers their customers and partners are used to.

NextUC believes in changing the relationship dynamic for services they deliver. The customer deserves better than they have historically been delivered. Better pricing, better leverage, better service; and NextUC is up to the challenge. There are no contracts required, there is a 60 day evaluation period and customers can leave at any point they feel there is a need. This marks the beginning of a massive shift in the way business collaboration and communication services are being consumed by businesses.
