Arbinet Offers Free Global Number Portability


Arbinet Corporation, a leading wholesale telecommunications service provider, today announces the availability of its Global Number Portability Service to carriers worldwide – in a special promotion at no cost through May 2010. Arbinet has been maintaining its routing registry for more than four years and is a proven leader in the space managing more than 100 million queries a month against its platform for its customers.

As a world leader in intelligent call routing, Arbinet leverages its Routing Registry to route calls based on an understanding of the underlying dial code assignments to carriers in each country combined with up to date information on the porting of individual numbers within that country.

Combined with Arbinet’s simplified go-to market strategy for global voice termination services, access to the Global Routing Registry provides even more ways to meet the growing and complex demands of International carriers. The Registry identifies the correct mobile operator for a voice call or SMS message in numerous countries in Europe, South America and Australasia.

Steve Heap, Arbinet’s Chief Technology Officer, said, “We are very pleased to be able to make this offer to the international telecoms industry. Correct routing based on the current ownership of a number is very much the wave of the future, but the commercial implications are difficult to assess in advance. With this promotion, carriers worldwide are able to use the service in their day to day business without taking any financial or technical risks.”
