Benefits of number portability system
Number portability involves the transfer of a customer’s data from one network operator to another whilst allowing them to keep the same phone number. Local number portability refers to this process for fixed line numbers; wireless number portability is for mobile numbers. Number portability systems are optimal when based around centralised databases and processes. This allows them to work most efficiently and securely. The benefits of number portability extend to both customers, who can change operator while keeping their number with ease, and to operators, who can draw new customers more easily.
