Huawei offers MNP solution to Idea Cellular

Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI: Huawei and Idea Cellular on Wednesday announced the successful launch of the first commercial MNP (mobile number portability) solution in India where the China-based telecom equipment and solutions provider migrated 470 sets of equipment, comprising up to 60,000 links, for Idea without any service interruption.

By adopting Huawei's STP-based (signalling transfer point) MNP solution that optimises the signalling network and supports network transformation, Idea is now able to provide number portability service to more than 6.3-crore subscribers in 22 telecom circles.

According to Huawei India Vice-President A. Sethuraman, “Our STP-based MNP solution can enable operators to simplify their signalling and routing by using a flexible configuration of the signalling message processing”.

“We are proud to be the first operator to complete all LRN (local routing number)-based migration activities in India. This milestone will allow our subscribers to enjoy number portability service in India,” said Idea CTO Anil K. Tandon.
