Yet another new service from BCI in the wireless industry, that identifies the type of phone number on virtually every number in your constituent data base. Specifically, we match your phone number information through SS7 Network technology – the global standard by which wireless carriers conform to procedures and protocol for network elements that effect call set up, signaling, routing, inter-network roaming, and control. SS7 is essentially the "glue" that connects circuit switched (traditional) networks with Internet protocol based networks. Once processing has been completed, BCI will append a unique verification code to confirm all matches.
Each verification code specifically identifies the phone number you provide as one of the following:
- Cell phone
- VoIP line
- Special Service phone number
- Invalid phone number
This coding process results in match rates of approximately 98% on all records submitted.
BCI highly recommends this service for Annual Fund campaigns that use auto-dialers, as prevention from regulations in the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (47 U.S.C. § 227) (click here for details in PDF format)
