Thanks Kidd,


Here’s a question for the group.


Verizon cell here locally works find, am I going to have to test every single Verizon cell tower in the country???  Geesh, there’s got to be a better way to get these codes out to people.

Verizon cell in Colorado says the number's been disconnected.  Envoy, I get fast busy.  AT&T cell in Colorado is good.

Hi everyone,


I stumbled on this list recently and have been reading through the archives.  Thanks for all the information you’ve all shared.


We’re a CLEC in Illinois and are in the middle of building a FTTH network in our home town.  In December our exchange 217-777 was effective.  We’re using ANPI’s Tandem service for our Feature Group D traffic and using our ILEC (Consolidated Communications) as our intralata/local tandem.


No troubles on the Intralata/local terminating traffic, however, we’re having more and more reports of different people out in the world that can’t call our customers.


It started with AT&T Cellular, that’s been resolved, then we heard from Sprint PCS, that’s been resolved.  Next was Comcast Business, that’s been resolved.


Latest example is a caller from Texas who is on Time Warner Cable:


LRN: 12543004000

OCN: 583C

LATA: 556





When they call us they just get dead air.


I guess my questions are:  How long after the effective date in the BIRRDS database do all of the switches get updated?  Is this a typical problem with a new exchange/LRN?


A follow up question: is there a service out there that will originate calls from many different telcos and if they fail, open up a ticket with that carrier?  I’m running into roadblocks calling these carriers since I am not a customer.


I’ve got a test number set up on 217-777-0001, “Thank you for Calling.  You have reached a test number.  Your telephone number is… “  if there’s anyone out there who wants to give it a test and report back, fine by me.  It seems the more information I have the better.


Thanks for listening,


Adam Vocks
