Neustar Selected by Allstream to Transform Telephone Number Management


Neustar's NumeriTrack solution overhauls and automates Allstream's management of five million telephone numbers in the U.S. and Canada

STERLING, Va, - OCTOBER 15, 2019 - Neustar, a global information services company and leader in identity resolution, today announced Allstream, a subsidiary of Zayo and leader in telecommunications services, has selected Neustar's inventory platform, NumeriTrackĀ®, to manage its five million telephone numbers in the U.S. and Canada.

Allstream, which assigns phone numbers to its customers, required a platform that would easily manage and track the status of telephone numbers throughout their lifecycle.

"Overhauling a critical asset required Allstream to find a proven and trustworthy leader that had the expertise and track record to support our needs today and have the capability to continually innovate for our future needs," said Allstream Chief Operating Officer Stephen Fisher. "There was only one company that met those needs and had a strong history in the communications market and that was Neustar."

In addition to telephone number management, Allstream is required to generate Number Resource Utilization Forms (NRUF) for the North American Number Portability Administration (NANPA) to satisfy compliance requirements. Neustar's NumeriTrack platform enables Allstream to manage TN inventory via a central repository, receive automated feeds of port transactions and generate compliance reports without cross referencing multiple systems and spreadsheets. These improvements eliminated manual processes and freed up the team to take on value added work streams.

"This new platform represents an upgrade over Allstream's legacy systems and provides them scale to facilitate growth," said John Denemark, Neustar Senior Vice President and General Manager of Carrier Provisioning. "Increasingly, carriers and enterprises are seeing the need to manage telephone numbers to support their clients and improve the customer experience. Enabling trusted connections is Neustar's heritage and we are delighted to deliver on that commitment to Allstream."
