NATIONAL LNP BILLING FORUM
The mission of the NLBF is to provide an industry level forum to ensure the integrity of billing, related to the network elements required to support Local Number Portability.
The scope of work performed by the NLBF will be number portability billing issues, related to access, mutual compensation, cost recovery and end user billing for all affected entities. It will encompass changes or additions to the existing network element billing requirements for number portability. The NLBF recognizes potential for changes in regulatory requirements and will consider them within its scope. While all billing issues affecting any entity will be considered, specific work is limited to industry-wide issues not formally within the scope of other ATIS committees.
The deliverable will be an issues list that reflects: modifications to an existing requirement; creation of a new requirement; referral of the issue to another committee; or documentation of any non-requirement solutions.
