Numbering Plan Community

The i3Forum Numbering Plan Community serves as a place for carriers and numbering plan experts — i3Forum Members and non-members alike — to share information and expertise, collaborate on best practices, discuss numbering plan-related issues, and access accurate and timely numbering plan updates provided by their peers.
Improving numbering plan communication and information to optimize your mission-critical activities: routing, pricing, billing, dispute resolution, and fraud prevention.

Community Approach

Not a numbering plan reference database, the community platform provides a structure and a mechanism to capture, share, and discuss numbering plan updates. Collaboration is key as participants share best practices and useful information to the benefit of the community at large.

i3Forum manages the platform, providing usage guidelines, new participant vetting and onboarding, content moderation, and a roadmap for improvements.

Participating Carriers are expected to access their trusted sources, identify reliable updates, and share updates to synchronize changes across the industry. They are encouraged to use the discussion platform and be active members of the online community and virtual meetings.

The i3Forum’s NP Community continues to grow and is now up to nineteen industry participants!  Members include…
