NPA Workshop
  • INC has received correspondence through the NANPA
    that Guyana may wish to make a presentation to
    the INC regarding their application to the NANP.
  • INC has indicated to the NANPA that INC deals
    with number administration issues and technical
    issues and does not deal with policy issues on
    this subject.

5
NPA Workshop
  • Split Rate Center Issue
  • When states override Industry Guidelines and
    authorize the splitting of a rate center in NPA
    relief, the consequence is that carriers need
    codes in the new NPA side of the rate center.
  • INC needs direction on how to meet this need
    along with carriers growth codes, while not
    conflicting with the NRO Order, specifically the
    percent utilization and Months-to-Exhaust
    required at a rate center level.

6
NANP Expansion
  • INC commends the CRTC for its thorough evaluation
    and agreement with the INC assumptions
  • CRTC intends to further address clearing D-digit
    uses, eliminating 1 as a toll indicator, and
    setting respective time frames for each
  • CRTC believes it is imperative that a fundamental
    expansion plan be finalized and agreed to by all
    NANP nations by Sept. 2001
  • INC has received responses only from the FCC and
    the CRTC as of Sept. 12, 2000

7
LNPA Workshop
  • INC will be releasing the next issue of the
    Thousands-Block Number (NXX-X) Pooling
    Administration Guidelines on Sept. 22, 2000.
  • This issuance of the guidelines is not producing
    a document that is complete with regard to FCC
    00-104 and other related matters
  • INC plans to reissue the guidelines in the next
    two months
  • INC is focused on UNP and understands that work
    on ITN is being addressed at the NRO Working
    Group.

CO/NXX Workshop
  • The NANPA has currently been directed by the FCC
    to use the criteria of the MTE on a rate center
    basis in all situations including new switches
    and specific customer requests.
  • INC feels that this practice prevents SPs from
    effectively configuring their networks to meet
    customer needs. This negatively impacts requests
    for numbering resources for new switches and
    multiple switches in the same rate center, and
    prevents network growth to serve new customers.
  • INC believes this is inconsistent with the FCC
    objective stated in Para 3 of the NRO order which
    states that optimization should
  • ensure sufficient access to numbering
    resources for all service providers to enter into
    or to compete in telecommunications markets.

9
INC Concerns
  • INC has expedited its process however, there are
    several questions for clarification that have not
    been answered by the FCC. INC plans to reissue
    the Central Office Code (NXX) Assignment
    Guidelines and Thousands-Block Number (NXX-X)
    Pooling Guidelines even though not all
    clarification requested has been received.
