Tyntec launched their new Voice Network Query service that enables major carriers to route voice calls to mobile phones directly to destination operator, minimizing network load. Now that regulations force the carriers to allow customers to port their mobile phone numbers, this introduces some network traffic issues. Of course, I should mention that you can port your traditional landline phone number to a VoIP provider such as Vonage
or Packet8, but that introduces its own series of number portability problems
in any case, mobile messaging services provider TynTec
, announced Voice Network Query, a service which will allow major telecoms carriers to route voice calls to mobile phones directly
to their destination network operator. The new service overcomes the issue of onward routing of voice calls to ported mobile numbers
, thus reducing the issue of excess network traffic generated by voice calls misrouted due to mobile number portability.
When a mobile user switches network but retains their current phone number, calls have traditionally been routed via the user's former operator's infrastructure, which then routes calls to the operator which now provides service to the customer.
