PISCATAWAY, N.J., Feb. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Telcordia (www.telcordia.com), a global leader in the development of mobile, fixed and broadband communications software and services, today announced that TOT Public Company Limited, a Thai state-owned telecommunications company has selected the Telcordia® Number Portability Gateway solution to provide mobile users with the choice and convenience of keeping their mobile number when switching service providers.
The win continues Telcordia's momentum in the Asian number portability market as evidenced by the more than 500M mobile subscribers supported by Telcordia's solutions in the Asian region alone. As part of the implementation, Telcordia will be working with IBM, who will be providing support services for the project.
"Telcordia's experience in the region, combined with their unmatched expertise and no-risk implementation provides a great basis for us to provide number portability services on our network," said Dr. Nattawut Satrawaha, TOT Public Company Limited. "We will have the platform to ensure seamless number porting services to our customers, offering convenience and increasing customer satisfaction, which is essential in such a competitive market."
"Number portability services provide an excellent opportunity for operators in the region to increase their customer base through the provision of new, feature-rich services and applications," said Richard Jacowleff, President, Interconnection Solutions, Telcordia. "Number portability is the start of a hugely exciting time for mobile consumers in Thailand, who will now have the mobile experience that is so common across the world. We see number portability as a stepping stone to building a fundamental foundation for Thailand's mobile subscriber base to access a whole new world of communication services and applications."
Telcordia has also recently announced it has been selected by Clearing House for Number Portability Co., Ltd., a consortium of the five mobile operators in Thailand, to provide both mobile number portability services and a number lookup service. Telcordia also provided Clearing House with a resolution system that receives telephone number requests and returns call routing instructions. The resolution system will support protocols including SOAP and ENUM, making Telcordia the first provider of core network ENUM services in Thailand.
