Types of Ports

Simple Port

As defined by the FCC, simple ports: 

  1. Do not involve unbundled network elements 
  2. Involve an account only for a single line
  3. Do not include complex switch translations (e.g.,Centrex, ISDN, AIN services, remote call forwarding, or multiple services on the loop/line) 
  4. Do not include a re-seller.

Non-Simple Port

A non-simple port is any port that does not qualify as a simple port. Ports with more than 20 numbers and multi-line accounts qualify as non-simple ports and may require project management.
Contact Telnyx for details before submitting the LSR.

Telnyx will provide a “reject” notice within 48 business hours

LSRs received after 2 PM CT will be considered received on the following business day.
