Industry Numbering Committee (INC) Report to the NANC May 21, 2010 Adam Newman, INC Chair Natalie McNamer, INC Vice Chair
INC Report to the NANC [May 21, 2010] 2 INC Meetings INC Meetings: INC held one face-to-face meeting since the last NANC report on April 20-22, Next INC Meeting: June 22-25, 2010, Overland Park, KS Details on all future meetings can be found at:
INC Report to the NANC [May 21, 2010] 3 NPA Subcommittee: Relief NPAs for Personal Communications Services (PCS) Currently, the 500 and 533 NPAs are used for PCS. The INC agreed to designate the following Easily Recognizable Codes (ERCs) as relief NPAs to be opened by the NANPA, in the following order: 544, 566, 577, and 588. In accordance with the PCS 5YY guidelines, no 544 NXXs shall be assigned until all 500 and 533 NXXs have been assigned from the currently assignable PCS 5YY inventory.
INC Report to the NANC [May 21, 2010] 4 CO/NXX Subcommittee: Issue 534 The Development of p-ANI Guidelines In March 2007, INC finalized the permanent p-ANI Guidelines for the Routing Number Administrator (RNA) per a NANC action item. In April 2007, the NANC reviewed, approved, and transmitted the p-ANI Guidelines to the FCC and requested clarification of a few items. In June 2007, the FCC sent a letter to the NANC Chair agreeing to incorporate the p-ANI Guidelines into the new Pooling Administrator (PA) contract with certain clarifications, and gave an example of one such clarification. In August 2007, the FCC awarded the new contract stating that the PA shall serve as the interim RNA until such time as …a permanent p-ANI solution is in place.
INC Report to the NANC [May 21, 2010] 5 CO/NXX Subcommittee: Issue 534 The Development of p-ANI Guidelines INC understands that the PA is awaiting further clarification from the FCC on certain issues and assumptions, and the permanent RNA function cannot be implemented until those are resolved. Until the FCC provides the needed clarifications to the PA and an FCC approved PA Change Order has been implemented, INC cannot resolve this Issue and publish its permanent p-ANI Guidelines. Until then, wireless Service Providers (SPs) will continue to use geographic Telephone Numbers (TNs) for E911/p-ANI purposes rather than assigning such TNs to end user customers. In addition, ongoing multiple pANI administrators continue to assign pANIs, which may lead to E911 service impacting duplicate pANI assignments and complicate transition to a permanent RNA.
