10x People are pioneers and leaders in local number portability.

10x People invented LNP. Well, not exactly, but we have been active on the LNP scene since day one. In fact, we wrote the original LNP messaging interface specification. We played a key role in developing and testing the industry’s first commercial SOA and LSMS. Since those early-mid-90s days,  we’ve developed a number of custom software solutions, as well as software products/services. Today, we are widely recognized in the telecom industry as numbering and inventory management experts.
