Illinois FCC LNP Field Test

Week 2 Summary

 

Summary

Week 2 of the Illinois FCC LNP Field Test (Field Test) was focused on Inter-company testing.Inter-Company Network Testing is the testing that is performed on telephone numbers that were ported from the Old Local Service Providerís (LSPs) switch to the New LSPs switch. Inter-company testing was initiated on August 18 by the four FCC LNP Field Test participants. This second week of testing is performed to assure that the act of porting a telephone number to a new LSP was transparent to the customer and had no adverse affect on the customers telephone service. The FCC Field Test remains on schedule and nothing has occurred that wasnít anticipated. Human errors were again encountered including but not limited to incorrect translations loaded into the Local Service Provider Switch, various incorrect Translation Types(TTs), querie functions set at no instead of yes. All problems encountered were due to human error. There were no problems caused by the LRN technology. These types of errors are to be expected when a network is first brought up to provide Local Number Portability. Next week continues to build to more involved testing. All that was planned to be accomplished was accomplished, and the FCC Field Test remained on schedule at the end of Week 2. All FCC Field Test participants should be commended for their team work and dedication to this project.

Week 2 events

#1 The home LRN at one end office (5ESS) was set to NO when it

should have been set to YES. This caused calls to the ported in numbers from other switches to not terminate properly. This is a human error and not a fault of the switch.

#2 At one tandem (4ESS) the SS7 interface was not setup correctly

(CNI Ring was not setup with a translations type of 11). This caused the tandem switch to NOT send the LNP queries. This is a human error and not a fault of the switch.

#3 At three end office (5ESS) switches the Local Digit Interperter

Table (LDIT) was set to 19 instead of 27. This caused the calls to terminate on the LRN and not the dialed digits. These three switches are the selective routers for E911.

This is a human error and not a fault of the switch.

1. The parameters on one side of a mutual trunk group was corrected.

2. The parameters on the other side of a mutual trunk group was also corrected.

Both were human errors and not a fault of the switch.
