Audit Activity Revisions of the Central Office Code Assignment Guidelines to address audits have been completed. The document will be reissued after INC 50 (June 2000). Seven issues have been introduced to address audits for other INC Guidelines.
UNP Activity INC has established a 25 page UNP Working Document from the contributions from SBC, MCI WorldCom, GTE, and AT&T.
Thousand Block Pooling Activity INC reissued the Thousand Block (NXX-X) Pooling Administration Guidelines, with an effective date April 14, 2000.
Fast Track Schedule INC has agreed to complete all FCC Order-related work to the Thousand Block (NXX-X) Pooling Administration Guidelines and Central Office Code Assignment Guidelines by the June 20, 2000 deadline.
Thousand Block Pooling Administration Questions for Clarification re: FCC Question 1: Concerning contamination, does the FCC mean up to and including 10% or up to 10% (The intent of the INC was up to and including 10%). Question 2: The INC Thousand Block (NXX-X) Pooling Administration Guidelines currently do not address transitioning from the state pooling trials to the National Thousand Block Pooling Framework. Does the FCC believe that transition plans from state pooling trials need to be documented (e.g., Requirement Document)?
Thousand Block Pooling Administration Questions for Clarification re: FCC cont. Question 3: When referring to “days” is the FCC referring to “calendar” or “business” days? For example, the 45 days noted for reserved numbers. (Paragraph 23)
Central Office Code Assignment Guidelines Questions for Clarification re: FCC Question 1: What is the FCC definition of “assignees’ applicable activation deadline?” Does this term refer to the day the code is opened in the PSTN, or the day customers are using the numbers? Question 2: Can a service provider submit an application for an initial code and indicate an effective date of up to six months from the date of application?(Paragraph 96).
COCUS II Questions for Clarification re: FCC Question 1: Do carriers have to have a separate COCUS report for each OCN? Question 2: If two OCNs belong to the same company and only one OCN completed its COCUS, can the non-reporting OCN delay resources for the reporting OCN? Question 3: For SPs that fail to provide a COCUS, should NANPA deny a request on a rate center, NPA or state basis?(To be developed by NANPA). Question 4: Does the calculation in paragraph 35 for available numbers preclude the PA from reporting on available numbers?
