With rapid increase of mobile service provider in world and as a developing country, India has emerged as the largest mobile service user country.

To improve the subscriber facility Indian telecom market had planned to implement the mobile number portability on PAN India basis as per guideline of DOT (Department of telecom).

This project will look at the operation and strategy used by different operators to implement the MNP on PAN India basis.


Mobile service marketing undergoing a significant transformation, with previous voice centric service to values added service like sms, CRBT etc. and from 2G service to 3G services. The mobile service provider had studied the market and the found that many customer want to use the other operator service’s but unable to use the same because they don’t want to change the MSISDN.

• CDR format adaptation

• Capacity re-arrangement

• Signaling expansion

• Routing re-configuration

Pre-paid Charging System

• MNP feature implementation

• Traffic table updates

• Capacity re-arrangement

For change in core & pre-paid charging system new node STP introduced by telecom vendor for controlling the call scenario and those STP connected with DOT STP for controlling the migration of subscriber from one service provider to other. After connecting the new node signaling architecture also revised
