Soon, NCC'll launch automated numbering system - EVC

Apex telecommunications regulator, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) may have advanced plans to introduce automated numbering system in the country, reports ITRealms.

Disclosing this to ITRealms in Lagos recently, the Executive Vice Chairman and chief executive officer of NCC, Prof. Umar Garba Danbatta, said that the Commission would soon launch this service.

“The automated system will be launched very soon by the Commission,” he declared at a one-day consultative forum towards the introduction of an automated numbering system in Nigeria held in Lagos.

EVC who was represented by the Executive Commissioner, Technical Services, Mr. Ubale Maska, also described numbers as scarce resources, noting that “one of the core functions of the Commission is to ensure that this scarce resource is effectively and efficiently managed."

Equally speaking at the forum, Paul Dinwoke, CEO Molcon Multiconcepts Limited, Consultants to NCC on the project also told the participants that some of the benefits of the automated system include convenience, transparency, efficiency, easy tracking, ability to choose number options, and strengthening of online payment systems.


The forum was attended by many stakeholders, including licensees of the Commission and staff, including Bako Wakil, Deputy Director Technical Standards and Network Integrity who told the audience that the deployment of automatic numbering management system is part of the NCC's efforts to automate her business processes within and outside the Commission.
