July 3, 1997

Michigan Team, as Dick Dowd has indicated below, we are very concerned

that the attendance and attention to the Detroit MSA has been very

poor. We are proceeding with the current timeline of having LNP

activated on 9/29/97 (same time as Chicago).

Scot Lewis, I thought Mitch Mitchell was the designated SPOC for

Detroit as well as Chicago, why hasn't he been

participating?!?!?!?!?!

No one is quite sure what is going on with TCG. I will follow up with

Ed Gould and AGAIN with Rick Arzadon. Hopefully they can let us know

who is the assigned TCG SPOC.

Time is getting short and I would hate to jeopardize the Detroit MSA

because the resources are not available.

It is critical that you contact Dick Dowd or myself on your attendance

at the next Michigan face-to-face meeting scheduled on Friday, July

11. The meeting is scheduled from 8:30 to 12:00 at 350 N. Orleans,

room 412. If you can't attend in person, we have reserved a bridge

(312) 814-8097.

Dick, thanks for getting the meeting minutes out so quickly. Dick can

be reached at (972) 498-5069.

Everyone have a safe and enjoyable Fourth of July weekend.

Subject: Michigan SPOC Team Weekly Conference Call 7/03/97

Due to lack of support as evidenced by the lack of participating from

service providers during the Weekly Michigan SPOC Team conference

calls,

I am asking Larry Vasquez to escalate to the Steering Committee in an

attempt

to determine which service providers intend to perform inter-company

testing

in the Detroit MSA.

On Thursday June 26, 1997 the Detroit Single Point Of Contact

Conference Call

was held via conference bridge, 1-800-593-xxxx passcode "xxxx", at

10:00 AM

CST.

The next meeting will be Friday 7/11 9:00 AM CDT at the Ameritech

Training

Center in Chicago located at 350 N Orleans. Team, the room for the

face-to-face meeting is Room 412, and the conference bridge number for

is 312-814-8097. This meeting will be held in conjunction with the

Detroit Implementation Team Meeting to ensure that the Implementation

Team and the SPOC Team are in sync.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS MEANS THAT THERE WILL NOT BE A CONFERENCE CALL

ON

THURSDAY 7/10.

Those who took part in today's call were as follows:

=======================================================================

=======

Attendance/Representation for Detroit has been vary scarce. Each

company

that intends to participate in testing in the Detroit area needs to

have

a representative present on the SPOC Team Weekly Conference Calls.

As you can determine from the attendance listed above. Of those

service

providers that will be in the Detroit MSA and that are taking an

active

part in the SPOC Team meetings is Ameritech.

I am asking Larry Vasquez, Chair of the Implementation Team to take

action

to attempt to gain support for the testing effort in Detroit. If

participants

do not intend to test, as in ATT, then their representative should

make this

known to the Test Coordination Manager, Dick Dowd.

=======================================================================

Bob Bartenstein reported that the earliest date that Detroit based

Ameritech

switches would be ready to actually port test customers is currently

9/8.

Bob didn't rule out the possibility of submitting LSR's for porting

prior

to 9/8 as long as the due date was not prior to 9/8.

Being that the Michigan PUC mandated that Detroit would turn up

commercial

service at the same time as Chicago, 9/26, this would leave very

little

time for inter-company testing. It is not known what amount of

testing

each participant will wish to perform at this time so there is only a

possibility of a Jeopardy. It is possible that service providers will

only

with to port one or two TNs and then perform a couple of call through

tests

on these TNs. This could probably be taken care of in a two working

week

window. We must keep a close eye on this area.

Below is a list of Ameritech switches that will be LNP capable by

9/8/97:

CLLI ENGLISH NAME SWITCH TYPE RATE CENTER

Before we decide which switch(s) and NXX(s) we are going to use for

the InterCompany tests we need to know in which rate center(s) SPs

plan

on participating in. Please remember that we can only port numbers in

and out of switches that are in the same rate center.

ACTION: Each participating service provider that intends to do

any

inter-company testing in the Detroit MSA needs to

determine

within which rate centers their switch does business and

provide that information to Dick Dowd as soon as

possible.

July 11th if at all possible.

RESPONSIBLE: World Com, MCI, SPRINT and TCG.

STATUS: Assigned July 3, however network forms were distributed

some

time ago and the information was requested at that time.

General Information:

The rate center for Detroit is "Detroit 6", Dearborn.
