Welcome to the Telecom Routing Administration

There is constant demand by service providers, telecommunications equipment manufacturers, and many other industry segments for telecommunications data to maximize their business potential.  Software providers and other enterprise telecommunications managers offering new services also add to the demand for Telecom Routing Administration (TRA) data.  Critical applications such as call routing, rating, and billing, depend on having access to the most accurate, timely, and comprehensive data offered in the industry.   Enterprising companies seize the opportunities that TRA’s accurate data affords:  Geographical Information Systems (GIS) applications, locator services, credit card services, transportation tracking, law enforcement, mapping and other applications.
