INC Report to the NANC 4 INC Meetings Meetings Since the previous NANC meeting, INC held one face-to-face meeting from July 29-31, 2014, and interim meetings on July 23 and August 26, An INC meeting is being held this week in Washington, DC.
INC Report to the NANC 5 Issue 748: Assess Impacts on Numbering Resources and Numbering Administration with Transition from Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) to Internet Protocol (IP) INC has drafted a response to the FCC regarding the impacts of large-scale rate center consolidation during the transition from PSTN to IP. Outlined positive and negative impacts of large-scale rate center consolidation Documented impacts to carriers networks and systems Identified that regulatory changes would be necessary Concluded that, given the complexities related to large-scale rate center consolidation, it is premature to develop a plan for implementation. However, as carriers’ network architecture and the market drives the need for such consolidation, the industry and regulators should work collaboratively to develop a plan.
INC Report to the NANC 6 Issue 762: CO codes assigned/transferred only to providers who own switching facilities When a Central Office (CO) code is assigned and the Part 1 has an invalid Switching Entity or Point of Interconnection, the CO code cannot be built in iconectiv's Business Integrated Routing & Rating Database System (BIRRDS). This can result in: Delays that affect other service providers with blocks from that code. More red blocks in the pool. Stranded numbers if there is no regulatory direction to reclaim the code. INC has modified the guidelines to expand verification that the switching ID/POI is valid for an NPA-NXX assignment and is built in BIRRDS.
