ABOUT

All Number Query (ANQ) was developed to provide easy and quick access to information on various number/data resources. The ANQ solution was initially setup to help resolve the issues caused by Number Portability, however the simple desire for more efficient and effective performance of duties, has increased the need for accessing specific number information centrally, accurately and in real-time. The ANQ solution has helped to properly identify the network that specific numbers belonged to along with other relevant information on numbers and other data types.
