Steps to porting your number.
Here’s a guide to the number porting cutover.
At cutover, the losing carrier reroutes any calls to Vaitel. During the cut-over your numbers may go offline as the various routing tables propagate between the Telcos. This process can vary from a few seconds to two hours depending on workload of the loosing carrier on the day of your number port.
As part of our porting process, we automatically recreate your numbers which you access from Manage Numbers in your Cloud PBX prior to the cutover. Once pre-provisioned, you can register phones in preparation of the cutover, you just won’t be able to make calls until the cutover is complete. If you’re using an on-premise PBX, your ported numbers will automatically route to your trunk number/IP address at cut-over.
If you already have an active PBX (Registered or SIP peer’d) at Vaitel, at cut-over we automatically route incoming calls to your trunk number/IP address for peering customers. For new customers, PLEASE DON’T WAIT for cut-over to start configuring your PBX. While incoming calls won’t fail, our systems will route through to our generic voice-mail, as we won’t at that point know where to on-send the call.
Cloud PBX Customers
For users of Vaitel’s hosted Cloud PBX, you can pre-provision your phones to Register to Vaitel’s network. From the moment of cutover, your phone should start working. To help you with handset provisioning take a look the information on device provisioning. With your devices set up, you’re ready to start calling.
