NeuStar has launched Taiwan's Number Portability Administration Center (NPAC) to enable landline and mobile customers to retain their phone numbers when switching communications service providers.
Taiwan's NPAC will disseminate telephone network information used by communications service providers to properly route voice and data traffic between networks throughout Taiwan.
In January 2005, NeuStar was awarded an exclusive five-year contract to develop, implement and support Taiwan's NPAC.
Through an open, competitive RFP process, NeuStar says it was selected unanimously by a 13-member selection
committee, which included representatives from the Ministry of Transportation and Communications; the Directorate General of Telecommunications (DGT); the Telecom Technology Center (TTC); Taiwan's five largest wireline and mobile carriers; and the academic community.
NeuStar will now support and maintain Taiwan's NPAC on behalf of TTC and will continue to work in conjunction with the operator of Taiwan's NPAC. NeuStar worked with Taiwan's Computer and Communications Research Labs under the Industrial Technology Research Institute and Systex Corporation to launch, support and maintain Taiwan's NPAC.
