The Process of Call 48 Local Number Porting

The most common question a new VoIP customer will always ask is “Can I keep my existing number?” It’s one of those questions that no matter how many times you have heard that you can do this when switching from a traditional phone line to VoIP usage, people still want it confirmed. In order to keep the number, it needs to be ported to the new provider. Here Call 48 explains what number porting is and how to port your phone number over to us.

To keep the old phone number it needs to be moved by a method called Local Number Portability (LNP), or “porting”. Porting is a process which allows users to move their phone numbers from one network or provider to another. There are a number of reasons why someone may wish to do so such as contact consistency, memorability (do you know anyone’s phone number that’s not saved in your phone?), publicity and company branding.

Porting a number from the traditional phone line to VoIP is possible, but not always an available service. In many cases, the former provider will only port for a ‘goodbye’ fee. It’s done mostly in an last-ditch attempt to keep you as their customer and also as a severance payment. In landline to VoIP transitions, local number portability encounters a only few challenges. For one, telephone providers may be restricted in their network’s reach, so users transferring to another city or country simply go out of bounds. As well, local number portability requires a person or business’ registration to match the records both providers have on hand, meaning a number assigned to different individuals, although in the same company or family, does not work.

If you are switching from traditional phone landlines to VoIP, you’ll find the change very simple with only a few steps. All you have to do is activate an account, plug-in a call device, disable the old phone line, and you are off making VoIP calls! Businesses may spend additional time configuring voice menus and other fun VoIP capabilities to suit their needs, but the whole process is incredibly straightforward nonetheless. From VoIP provider to VoIP provider, however, porting cannot typically happen because users do not own the virtual numbers assigned; they instead belong to the network as a whole.

Call 48 assigns all numbers automatically through our proprietary backend VoIP Portal system. It provides a wide variety of local and toll-free number area codes to pick from, so users will find their options abundant. See for yourself and follow this link through to the DID numbers page. Speaking with the VoIP provider directly is also a good move to see if there are exceptions or alternatives, so do not hesitate to get in touch.

Call 48 Fights Against Capacity Constraints

With the trend of the VoIP industry being providers consolidating their services to fewer carriers, one of the biggest side effects is running into capacity constraints. Call 48 has found the solution to this problem.

For years the industry norm was price compression. But the trend has reversed in many instances with prices going up instead of down. A cause of this shift is because of the additional regulatory oversight overhead for expense purposes along with just shared capacity to pass calls.

So what is capacity constraint? As an example, take LATA 460. If you have 10,000 channels available in that LATA. If you utilize all of them or utilize the calls per second (CPS) capacity, that is a capacity constraint as you are now out of room to make calls. Think of peak usage time when everyone makes phone calls at the same time, you will not have the ability to pass those calls and they will start shedding or failing.

And Call 48 covers more than 180 LATAs.

The Call 48 Capacity Constraint Solution

Call 48 never wants your call to fail. Call 48 is solving the capacity constraint problem by working on additional peering relationships with other vendors which have the footprint where we need additional capacity. Combine this with working with our upstream carriers and underlying carriers, we are continually expanding our capacity.

With one of the largest footprints in the United States, covering more than 175 LATAs and 13,000 rate centers, wholesale, resellers and private label customers come to us to cover a large portion if not all of the country. With a footprint so deep and wide, Call 48 has developed the tools to monitor and track capacity in real time.

VoIP Industry Trend is Consolidation of Carrier Services

In today’s telecom industry there is a tremendous amount of regulatory trends. With the implementation of the FCC’s stir shaken compliance, they are cracking down on spam calls, robo calls, and fraudulent calls. The root of this compliance is origination and termination services needing to be handled by the same carrier. And Call 48 has risen to the challenge.

There is consolidation as a result of this trend. Providers are wanting to do more services with less vendors. As opposed to having to go to up to a dozen different carriers for their needs, they are bringing their business to Call 48 to certify their calls. This way the providers know and trust us and we know and trust them.

What makes us attractive is the size of our origination footprint. With complete coverage of the United States from over 180 LATAs and 13,000 rate centers, providers know we have the DIDs, toll free and origination they need, making the termination easy.

When you have a network and footprint like Call 48 at your disposal, you can spend more than 90% of the country on net with us. Then we cover the rest of the country via an off net addition to our network.

The benefit to moving origination service to Call 48 is doing business with a massive network that’s highly redundant, secure, and stable along with a large suite of products. Add to that our competitive if not industry leading pricing and you have the place where you can complete all your carrier service needs.

All the DIDs You Need in One Place Call 48

The days of having multiple small aggregators isn’t practical or needed any longer. What you want now is the provider with the largest footprint, reliable network, and best pricing and availability. Call 48 has solved the problem of not getting the DIDs you need from one provider. While most carriers are regionalized, covering about 5,000 rate centers, Call 48 covers more than 13,000 rate centers and over 180 LATAs.

Call 48 makes it easy to route all your traffic over minimal trunks so you can keep them secure and keep them protected. No longer do you have to manage channels or concurrent calls over many different providers. By buying your origination from Call 48 you know what your true utilization is. And you get the best pricing because you’ve aggregated it all through one provider.

When a provider doesn’t have the phone number you need it’s because they are either out of inventory or simply don’t have that footprint. In the case that they don’t have the inventory, you have to put in a special request, then wait 2-3 weeks while they attempt to fulfill it. If they don’t have the footprint, it means they don’t even have the ability to offer the phone number to you. In this case, they have to try to get it from someone else, which will cost them more money and in the end will cost you more money.

In both of these scenarios, you are waiting. And time is money. So you either need to start shopping for another provider to get you the DID you need and you have wasted your time. Not to mention your customer’s…

Call 48 has made it easy for wholesale and reseller customers to get the phone numbers that they need. With our CPaaS enabled customer platform, VoIP Portal, customers can use this fourth generation interface to purchase and provision DIDs from all over the United States in real time.

Call 48 Makes the Local Number Porting Easy

When you are a leader in the DID industry, its imperative that Local Number Porting, or LNP, is can be done easily and quickly for customers. LNP is not as difficult as you may believe and with the Call 48 guide to LNP, we can help you make sure that your porting process goes quickly and smoothly. Here Call 48 explains what number porting is and how to port your phone number from one provider to another or an outdated landline to innovative VoIP.

Put simply, the reason a VoIP customer keeps their number because the number is ‘ported’ from a network to a provider. Porting is a process which allows users to move their phone numbers from one network or provider to another. There are a number of reasons why someone may wish to do so such as contact consistency, memorability (do you actually know anyone’s phone number that’s not saved in your phone anymore?), publicity and company branding.

Porting a number from the traditional phone line to VoIP is possible, but not always an available service. In many cases, the former provider will only port for a ‘goodbye’ fee/ severance payment, or what in basically is a last-ditch attempt to keep you as their customer by making your life difficult.

In landline to VoIP transitions, local number portability encounters only few challenges. For one, telephone providers may be restricted in their network’s reach, so users transferring to another city or country simply go out of bounds. As well, local number portability requires a person or business’ registration to match the records both providers have on hand, meaning a number assigned to different individuals, although in the same company or family, does not work.

When porting a number from one VoIP provider to another, porting does not commonly happen because users do not own the virtual phone numbers assigned. Most of the time, they actually belong to the network as a whole.

To aid and assist in LNP, Call 48 operates a proprietary back end system called VoIP Portal where numbers are assigned automatically and updated in real time. In addition, there are also a wide variety of local and toll-free number area codes to pick from, so users will find their options abundant. If you need your numbers ported, contact a member of the Call 48 DID team today to get your numbers moving in the right direction. We will also take you for a tour of the VoIP Portal so you can see how easy it is to assign them.
