Neustar Ethernet Ordering

Simplified access ordering for next-gen networks

Communications Service Providers (CSPs) rely on a nationwide network of access trading partners to extend their presence and provide last-mile connectivity to valuable enterprise and government customers. Ethernet is the preferred access service due to its attractive performance and cost benefits, but ordering Ethernet access is often a lengthy, cumbersome and error-prone process. Users must be well-versed in industry terminology and acronyms and processing can take up to 180 days before end-users are activated and billed.

Buy and Sell in One Solution

Neustar simplifies ordering and provisioning access services, enabling CSPs to quickly and reliably buy and sell access wherever their customers are located. With one solution to send and receive access service requests (ASRs), Neustar provides established interconnection to all major access providers. Simplified forms and guided field selection allow any users to efficiently process orders with greater flow-through.
