GURUGRAM, India & BRIDGEWATER, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As a key driver of choice, competition and innovation, mobile number portability (MNP) enables consumers and businesses to keep their mobile telephone numbers when changing from one mobile network service provider to another. India is a prime example of these benefits. Since 2011, MNP Interconnection Telecom Solutions India (MITS), an iconectiv subsidiary, has completed over 400 million port-in requests across the country’s 580 million subscribers throughout Zone 2.
These milestones highlight iconectiv's expertise in ensuring fast, accurate porting that is critical for customer choice and satisfaction. This is key to guaranteeing that India’s mobile service providers can correctly and efficiently route phone calls and text messages—helping service providers maximize their revenue, profitability and brand reputation.
“Reaching the 400-million mark for port-in requests is an important indicator of India’s telecom leadership,” said Kshitij Lal, Managing Director, MITS. “For more than a decade, MITS has enabled consumers and businesses alike to select the service provider of their choice without changing their number—all the while giving mobile service providers more opportunities to grow their subscriber base and revenue. Built on iconectiv software, this underscores the robustness and reliability of MITS as well as the dedication of the teams working on it."
MITS has successfully helped mobile service providers achieve smooth merger and consolidation activities without any disruption of services for subscribers. MITS also ensured flawless implementation of corporate porting, national porting, MNP Seventh Amendment and several other enhancements in MNP processes as per the requirements of the industry and the government.
