NPA-NXX Activity Guide (NNAG)
The NPA NXX Activity Guide (NNAG) helps you to prepare for all future NPA NXX adds, changes and disconnects, as well as last minute changes to active records. It can be considered and used as a standalone product or as a complement to the NPA NXX Active Code List (NNACL).
The NNAG consists of NPA NXX records (as well as block assignments where applicable) associated with future activity reported by service providers (generally covering several months ahead), as well as last minute changes made in the prior month. Data provided includes the assigned service provider Operating Company Number (OCN) of the NPA NXX , the type of service that is provided (e.g. wireless) by the assigned service provider, the associated Rate Center and State/Province/Country, and a Portability Indicator. Also included is a file that can be used to translate the Operating Company Number (OCN) to a company name. A user-friendly and dynamic “search” program to facilitate data selection and extraction is also provided with each issue of the product. A general information section explains the data in greater detail.
The primary NNAG file includes an activity code associated with the NPA NXX and its data (E=establish, M=modify, D=disconnect), as well as the date that the activity is currently targeted to occur. NNAG data is provided in fixed-width ASCII files. This data can be locally imported into Excel, loaded into locally developed databases, and/or read with applications that can read text files (e.g. Notepad, Microsoft Word). Reading and processing of the data is a local consideration, based on user needs, processing environment, etc.
The NNAG does not list active NPA NXX information unless it is associated with a future modification or deletion. However, the separately available NPA NXX Active Code List (NNACL) contains a complete list of active codes. TRA does not provide integration processes between the two lists.
