How do I query and update the CNAM record for a local telephone number?

The Powerful Explore tool in PortControl makes it easy.

Simply enter the local numbers or a list of local numbers that you’d like to look up, and PortControl will access the stored records for the number(s) and return the results through the Explore interface. You can then explore the stored data on each number, if the numbers are on your Spid. Then you can select and modify the records including CNAM information with our easy-to-use portal.
