This document provides a historical as well as practical overview of 
the implementation of Number Portability (NP) Administration in the 
United States (U.S.). There are various regulatory constraints that 
establish relevant parameters for NP implementation, most of which 
are not network technology specific. This document describes the NP 
business model and the architecture for NP administration in the 
North America.  It also briefly discusses the functions performed by 
the NP administrator and the cost recovery mechanism.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
