MOBILE NUMBER PORATBILITY


Mobile number portability is basically switching from one service provider to another without changing the number.Here the old service provider is known as "donor" and new service provider is known as "recipient".In the International system, the customer is required to contact the "recipient" to make necessary arrangements for the process and is known as "recipient led porting" whereas UK is the only country where" donor led porting" exists.The system routs all calls,messages and other services to the new service provider database through a central database.In India, the govt has decided to launch MNP from December.The country will be divided into two service zones and eleven licensed service areas.However in the Indian context some problems may arise like- quick spread of mobile virus,less memory capacity to bear the switching exhaustion and less capacity of the batteries to handle the additional load.
