We partner for the long run.
Canadian Numbering Administrator (CNA)
COMsolve operates the Canadian Numbering Administrator (CNA): the entity responsible for administering and issuing telephone numbers and other telecommunication codes in Canada. Our team in Ottawa process about a thousand applications per year for administered code resources (ex., network identification codes and large blocks of 10,000 telephone numbers referred to as CO codes – which are the first six digits of a ten-digit telephone number).
COMsolve’s team assigns the resources as taken and notifies the carriers. We do not assign individual telephone numbers as it is the carrier’s responsibility.
We provide consulting services to carriers regarding telecommunication policy matters. As the telecom marketplace changes and technological developments continue, so do the policies and regulations that govern this industry.
We stay up to date with the ISED Canada and Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications (CRTC) mandated rules and provide insight into regulatory and industry framework policy.
COMsolve being an early participant in testing Emergency Services IP Network (ESInet)/Next Generation Core Services (NGCS) interfaces, we have experienced technical resources that can help Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) implement Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1).
We have been directly involved in the testing of PSAP-ILEC and OSP-ILEC interfaces as part of the ongoing Canadian ILEC trials.
It takes a village to implement NG9-1-1 and with COMsolve’s in-depth knowledge and experience, we can provide PSAPs and 9-1-1 agencies peace of mind with the ability to test NG9-1-1 functionality and future changes.
NG9-1-1 Readiness Audit
You are a PSAP already connected to your ILEC's Emergency Services IP Network (ESInet). You are getting ready for your first test calls. Are you really ready?
Have you properly configured your call handling solution, border control functions, routers, firewalls, and other parameters?
If you are not ready, be prepared for a very long and costly set of delays. Reduce this risk with a readiness audit from COMsolve.
COMsolve’s services can provide Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs), telecom service providers, and 9-1-1 Agencies peace of mind throughout the implementation process
