As of today, Neustar assumes the responsibility as the permanent Routing Number
Administrator (RNA). The RNA is responsible for managing and assigning non-dialable
p-ANIs (Pseudo-Automatic Number Identification) which are used to support the routing
of wireless and VoIP 9-1-1 calls, out of the 211 NXX and 511 NXX on a national basis including Puerto Rico.

The Routing Number Administrator System (RNAS) is also now available at To register for access to the RNAS, select the ‘Register’ link. If you have already registered and received your temporary password, you can access the RNAS by using the ‘Login with Frames’ or ‘Login without Frames’ options.

Any entity intending to apply for non-dialable p-ANIs will be required to file an initial forecast in the RNAS from March 19, 2012 – April 18, 2012, so that the RNA can promptly assess what the forecasted demand will be during the first year of implementation as to the possible exhaust dates of the 211 and 511 NXXs. This forecast may be modified, as necessary.

The RNAS user guides and manual p-ANI Forecast user guide and template is located under ‘Documents’.

All future notices relating to p-ANI will only be sent to registered users of RNAS.
Forecast Requirement March 19, 2012
If you are looking to request p-ANIs in March, then you would submit a forecast that covers the October 2011 - March 2012 period. However, you will also need to submit a forecast by April 18th that covers the April 2012 – September 2012 and October 2012 – March 2013 periods, which covers the initial forecast requirement.

Per the INC p-ANI Administrator Guidelines, carriers are required to forecast on a semi-annual basis. Below is an excerpt from section 6.0 of the guidelines which addresses the forecast timelines:
P-ANI Assignees and p-ANI Applicants shall submit their P-ANI Forecast Report (Appendix 1) to the RNA on a semi-annual basis on or before April 1st for the period of April 1st of the current year through March 31st of the following year, and on or before October 1st for the period of October 1st of the current year through September 30th of the following year.
