iconectiv helps enable phone subscribers to keep their mobile phone numbers when switching service providers

The Vietnam Telecommunications Authority (VNTA) selected FPT Information System Corporation (FPT IS) to deploy Vietnam´s first MNP solution using iconectiv´s TruNumber Portability Clearinghouse, the company said.

FPT worked closely with iconectiv–the authoritative partner of the global communications industry and number portability expert–to deliver the MNP solution, bringing additional convenience and choice to Vietnam´s 120 million-plus mobile subscribers.

MNP allows consumers to retain their phone number when switching mobile service providers. In addition to convenience for subscribers, this increases competition among mobile service providers seeking to retain or increase their subscribers–often resulting in competitive pricing, improved network coverage, enhanced services and improved customer care. It is also an essential element of a service provider´s business case and is key to creating additional revenue per customer.

In addition to Vietnam, number portability solutions from iconectiv and its subsidiaries have been implemented worldwide, including in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Greece, India, Malaysia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Thailand, Tunisia, U.A.E., and the US

During more than 24 years of development, FPT Information System Corporation has been one of the system integrators in Vietnam and the region. For more information, visit http://www.fpt-is.com/.
