Porttings can be monitored via OCH Online, which includes statistics reports and databasedumps. With this connection, the operator can both send and receive transactions. There will also be an opportunity for resale of OCH services (by prior agreement with OCH).
Provides the right to use OCH data via resold services from an operator with direct connection and does not give direct access to central OCH system. It is possible to use OCH online system and access to order statistical reports. This form of connection is typically used when the internal clearing of transactions are carried out by another operator.
