LNPA Contract Change: Know What's at Stake


The FCC is now taking comments on a recommendation to change the LNPA by July 2015. Due to process delays, the timeline for making such a change, originally 26 months, is now under 9 months.

Join Jim Johnson, Founder and CEO of The Standish Group as he leads a discussion with Bill Reidway of Neustar as they discuss the LNPA approval process, how a transition would be implemented, the technical and operational impacts on service providers, and who ultimately bears the costs and risks of losing functionality and stability.
