STERLING, Va., Dec. 16, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Neustar, Inc. (NYSE: NSR), a leader in providing carriers and enterprises with solutions for sending calls, messages and content across networks worldwide, today announced the availability of its one-day porting turnkey service for small-to-medium-sized operators. This new technology solution, Neustar PortXpress(SM), utilizes an innovative and secure cloud-based architecture that enables operators to reduce the interval for port requests to just one business day, enabling them to meet the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC's) new one-day number porting requirements by the January 31, 2011, deadline without system modification or new capital investments.
"Organizations and consumers are accustomed to being able to take their telephone numbers with them as they take advantage of marketplace choices," said Steve Edwards, senior vice president, Carrier Services at Neustar. "Neustar's new service makes it even easier for operators to manage these transitions and seamlessly connect their customers."
Edwards added, "Neustar is the industry leader in number porting, processing millions of transactions a month in the US, Canada, Taiwan and Brazil. PortXpress(SM) builds on our strong foundation of number portability and network interconnection experience."
Beginning January 31, 2011, all operators will be required to provide enterprises and consumers with the ability to transfer basic telephone numbers from one operator to another in as little as one business day. PortXpress(SM) allows small-to-medium-sized operators to easily comply with these new guidelines. For regional operators, complying with this regulation could require costly upgrades to their network services and an increase in reporting functions. PortXpress(SM) helps reduce costs and significantly improves time to service by granting operators access to real-time call routing information. It also reduces risk by streamlining simple number porting functionality and ensuring compliance with FCC mandates to avoid potential non-compliance penalties.
PortXpress(SM) provides access to over 400 operators in the United States and continues to expand. It increases operator flexibility and scalability by delivering an always-on service through a Neustar-supported, web-based interface. This dramatically simplified, cost-effective model for number portability is designed to meet FCC requirements and deliver robust reporting capabilities while providing operators with the competitive advantage of speed to market in completing these required services.
Neustar has been a trusted leader in local number portability since its inception. In 1996, Neustar was selected to meet the technical and operation challenges introduced to the communications industry by local number portability.
