This page describes the technical aspect of the Datafeed Service where
porting events are sent in real-time via a simple protocol delivered over TCP/IP.
Upon initial service activation, a snapshot containing the state of all
ports at a given point in time will be delivered via the interface. From this point onwards all subsequent porting events will be queued and sent (in chronological order) via the interface.
Each porting event is sent as an ASCII 'row'. Each row contains exactly 3 fields each delimited by a vertical bar "|". These fields are an Action Indicator, a
and a CAC.
- A = Add, means a newly ported number (only A's will appear in the initial snapshot)
- C = Change, means a number that's been ported in the past and has now been ported again
- D = Delete, means a number has been returned to the original allocated carrier
Here's an example porting event delivered via the real-time interface: A|
