FCC Takes Next Step in NPAC Transition

The FCC this week approved the Master Service Agreement (MSA) between iconectiv and the North American Portability Management (NAPM, LLC), clearing a major hurdle in the Number Portability Administration Center (NPAC) transition from the current vendor, Neustar, to the newly chosen vendor, iconectiv. With this agreement finalized, the Transition Oversight Management team will draft an updated transition project plan and hopefully share it with the industry on its webinar at the end of August.

iconectiv should begin reaching out to providers soon to begin their initial transition procedures. JSI plans to attend the August webinar for more in-depth transition details to share with clients. We also will be contacting iconectiv to discuss the process.

If you have any questions about the NPAC transition, please contact Bridget Alexander in JSI’s Maryland office at 301-459-7590.
