PISCATAWAY, N.J., Nov. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Telcordia, a global leader in the development of mobile, broadband and enterprise communications software and services, today announced that it has been selected to manage mobile number portability (MNP) in Argentina. The award was announced by the Ministerio de Planificacion Federal, Secretaria de Communicationes (SeCom) on behalf of the Comite de Portabilidad Numerica, a consortium of all mobile operators in Argentina. Along with implementing carrier-grade MNP software solution to Argentina’s mobile service providers, Telcordia will provide training and managed services over the five year term. Telcordia manages number portability for more than one billion users worldwide.

Telcordia was one of multiple number portability vendors competing for the mobile number portability contract in Argentina. Along with its partner Telmark, Telcordia has established the joint venture company Administradora de la Portabilidad Argentina S.A. as part of the agreement.

The selection was made upon evaluating Telcordia’s background, technical capabilities and pricing model, which offered the lowest total cost of ownership. Telcordia also demonstrated proven experience in number portability deployments with the most deployments worldwide, including consistent on-time delivery of software to support installation timelines of each country. With Argentina, Telcordia will now support more than 175 million mobile and fixed line subscribers across Latin America, including Chile and Mexico.

“We look forward to bringing our Latin American and worldwide number portability experience to Argentina as we work closely with the country’s service providers to install and manage a number portability system that will give consumers more choice and creates a more competitive marketplace,” said Richard Jacowleff, President, Interconnection Solutions, Telcordia. “With the most number portability implementations worldwide, Telcordia continues to demonstrate that it can offer a reliable and robust number portability solution that meets a broad range of needs.”
