The request was made by the operators of the Isle of Man:
- Cable & Wireless Isle of Man
- Manx Telecom
A MNP process with a Central Reference Database with inter operator communications was specified with the help of an independent consultant. PortingXS offered to deliver conform specifications. After a demo of the process that was developed in the Channel Islands, the Mobile operators of the Isle of Man chose to implement the “standard” process. They also use a customer SMS for authorisation. The complete process is automated, and a customer leaves the shop within 10 minutes, calling with his old number on the SIM of his new operator. Project was running from February until the going live date of June 29th 2009.
