Printer Friendly

CLECs who purchase “Access” circuits from AT&T 12-STATE out of “Tariff/Guidebook” for underlining facilities that support their CLEC Interconnection network (trunk groups).

The following are the steps that outline the necessary forms/requirements to ensure that your CLEC codes are set-up in the AT&T 12-State ordering systems to submit ASRs for Access Services being requested out of Tariff/Guidebook [i.e. Special/Switch Access T1 and/or T3 circuits] that will support the following CLEC trunk groups (TGs): Meet-Point TGs [MD- Interlata/IXC traffic], and Ancillary TGs [OS/DA, 911, Choke/Mass Calling traffic].  All steps below must be confirmed ‘Complete’ by the AT&T CLEC Start-Up Team before CLEC can: 1) submit NIS/Forecast and request joint planning call, and/or 2) submit Standalone T1 Access ASRs to the appropriate Service Center.  NOTE: Facilities that support the Meet-Point [MD] and Ancillary TGs- where we are not mutually exchanging Local/Intralata traffic between the two parties end-users, are not treated as local interconnection facilities and cannot be issued on a Combo ASR (Trunks & Facilities).
