NPAC certified local number porting solution


“My dream was to unite a company and, as a result of this accomplishment, we are now about to unite an entire underserved industry.”

After receiving the United States’ first cloud NPAC certification in October of 2017, with a platform residing in an AWS environment, Porting.com has, once again, raised the bar. On January 30th, 2020 Porting.com announced the successful deployment of their enhanced NPAC certified local number porting solution, PortControl, on Microsoft Azure. PortControl is the first and only NPAC certified LNP SOA backed by Azure's trusted infrastructure.

Mark Bilton-Smith, Porting.com's President and Chief Operating Officer, said, "There's a reason why more than 95 percent of Fortune 500 companies use Azure. The cross platform, virtual, circuit, and location redundant Microsoft Azure exceeds our customer's reliability needs. Best in class redundancy and scalability was a requirement for Porting.com as PortControl will change the way carriers perform local number porting. Like our customers, we wanted the ability to effortlessly scale without interruption making Azure the clear choice."

In March 2020, Porting.com will be publicly releasing the PortControl platform. "We're dreamers. We challenge traditional thinking, uncovering new possibilities which positively impact and unite our industry. With a focus on innovation, automation, standardization, and the simplification of local number porting complexities, PortControl creates necessary change that is propelling telecom forward - inspiring carriers to collaborate," said Mark Bilton-Smith. “My dream was to unite a company and, as a result of this accomplishment, we are now about to unite an entire underserved industry. This is what has inspired the PortControl slogan: Power in Numbers. We can now tell a never-ending story that the world will embrace. One in which carriers who perform local number porting no longer have to settle for technology that was built in the 90’s, for the 90’s, and has not been improved upon since. We live in 2020, a world where AI, automation and advancements in technology have surpassed our wildest dreams, yet LNP process optimization has been long forgotten in the eyes of progressive thinkers. Now carriers don't have to settle for less. In this wonderful new decade, PortControl will make it possible to at last unite an industry that is long overdue for the win.”

PortControl Clearinghouse Features:

  • One interface, one login, one browser tab, one invoice, and one support call for all local number porting processes.

  • Sync - Local subscription management service (LSMS) that allows carriers to consume NPAC data, for the purposes of routing, rating, and billing local calls, the way they want to consume it.
