iconectiv Announces Cutover of Three Regional NPAC Systems
iconectiv, the next Local Number Portability Administrator (LNPA) for the United States, today announced the successful transition of the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest Number Portability Administration Center (NPAC) Regions on May 6, 2018. This was the second regional cutover of NPAC data and services for Service Providers, Service Bureaus and Providers of Telecom-Related Services (PTRS), following iconectiv’s successful transition of the Southeast NPAC Region on April 8, 2018. Prior to the regional NPAC transitions, iconectiv successfully transitioned services for law enforcement and businesses that must comply with Wireless Do Not Call lists in March.
The Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest NPAC Regions include the following states: Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington D.C., West Virginia and Wisconsin.
“The continued dedication of our teams, paired with guidance and support from the industry, has propelled us to reach yet another significant milestone in the transition to the new NPAC system,” said Kathy Timko, Head of the LNPA Services at iconectiv. “We are thrilled by the transition’s success so far and are looking forward to sharing more good news in the homestretch towards the Final Acceptance Date.”
The United States NPAC is the world’s largest system of databases of ported telephone numbers and consists of seven different regional databases. In March 2015, the FCC designated iconectiv as the next LNPA for all seven regions. The remaining regions, (Southwest, West and West Coast), are scheduled to transition to iconectiv on May 20, 2018.
