PON

A PON (Port Order Number) is a system generated order number assigned to port orders to easily identify individual requests.

How is Bandwidth Involved with PON

Bandwidth uses a PON to signal that the LSR has been submitted to the losing carrier. If a PON has not generated, that indicates that there is an issue with the submission.

What Are the Benefits of PON

Having a PON to reference makes it easy for customers to manage their orders in the Bandwidth Numbers Dashboard. Customers can find this information on the main page in the bottom right corner under “Search for an Order.” Choose “Port” and then type in the PON.
