Provider: Pitney Bowes Business Insight

CarrierInfo provides overview information about local and wireless telephone service providers. In particular, the product:

  • Accurately shows the service area footprints of local landline telephone service providers – quickly determining and comparing the overall competitive landscape of various carriers.
  • Allows users to determine coverage areas by service type (LEC/CLEC/Wireless), parent company name, carrier name, or operating company number (OCN).

CarrierInfo is designed to be a macro view of the communications landscape. Its sole purpose is to show the serving area region of every telecommunications operating company. The product will include a high-level (i.e. parent company) view of a carrier’s service area as well as a medium-level (i.e. operating company number) view of the service area. By combining this level of carrier information into one product, MapInfo makes it easy for users to understand which carriers serve a particular area. With the current product offerings, customers need three products (ExchangeInfo Plus, RateCenterInfo and MobileMarketInfo) to get the complete view. By providing one product, MapInfo is positioned to meet the user’s needs while minimizing product confusion.
