We can activate telephone numbers and number ranges assigned by the Dutch regulator, we facilitate the Dutch number porting process, we offer a switching service for internet and bundles and we can help you to connect to Dutch wholesale services. We also support the provisioning of data for subscriber information and emergency services.

All COIN services are easily accessible through an API or a web portal.

Future developments

The telecommunications sector is facing a number of important developments, such as the implementation of the European Electronic Communications Code, roll-out of 5G and high-speed broadband infrastructures, the Internet of Things and Smart Homes. There are also concerns with regards to the continuity, privacy and security of the common telecommunications infrastructure.

Together with our members we look into these developments. How can we, as a sector, contribute to a secure and reliable future digital infrastructure?
