iconectiv Manager Appointed to Key Oversight Roles for Communications Association

Demonstrating iconectiv´s continuing leadership in the global communications industry, Industry Relations Manager Natalie McNamer has been elected to leadership positions in two significant groups of the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS), an influential standards body based in Washington D.C, the company said.

McNamer will become chair of the ATIS IMSI Oversight Council (IOC) and co-chair of the ATIS Industry Numbering Committee (INC).

The IOC is an open industry council of telecommunications companies and other organizations responsible for the management and administration of International Mobile Subscriber Identities (IMSI) in the US — the critical 15-digit number used within mobile phones that allows service operators to identify mobile terminals for purposes of international roaming. INC is a key resource for addressing and resolving all industry-wide issues associated with planning, administration, allocation, assignment and use of the North American Numbering Plan (NANP) including area codes, central office codes, carrier identification codes, and other numbering resources.
