We delay adding them because once they are added in our Inventory they route instantly on our network, and on our interconnecting peer's networks. To stay compliant with PSTN standards, we don't want to do that until we have FOC
This is why I like to setup routing in the provider portal as soon as I set up the number.
See if you begin to route the number immediately after putting it in a place I can access, that means I will immediately being to miss calls from anyone using Skyetel to call me.
Because I have not yet routed the number to point to any of my Endpoints.
Yes, calls from other carriers will still go to the existing provider, until the port completes. But for anyone else using Skyetel, the call will never leave your network and attempt to route to me potentially before I am ready.
We go back and forth on this, but settled on this method because about 25% of our LNP orders occur before a PBX has even been spun up. Many integrators want to get the port started, and then install & configure the PBX on the FOC date.
For future reference, you can actually ask our LNP team to route the phone numbers to a particular endpoint group in the Port Notes for you.
