Subject: 911 Ad-Hoc Meeting Minutes 4/7/97
911 Ad-Hoc Team
Apri 7, 1997
Concern was raised by Barb about notification to new or small TCs with
regards to number portability. There was discussion that when a TC files
their application for being a local service provider, that they should be
aware of industry standards and
We also stated that the chairs of all the committees for number portability
are meeting at the end of the month to put together a book of "how to" for
number portability. This will then be available to new providers as they
come on line.
Long discussion regarding who should get notified of no "U" (unlock) getting
to the 911 database. At least for the first quarter of number portability
it was asked that both the donor company and the new service provider be
notified of those type scenarios. We have asked all 911 database providers
to take it back to their departments and see if they can do this on a short
term basis. This is outside of the normal procedures for notification of an
It was also agreed upon, that the 911 database provider will not be the
negotiator between the two companies in the case of the record not getting
unlocked and being able to be updated by the new provider. Negotiations
once they have been notified, MUST
BE between the donor and new provider.
There was a discussion on a number being ported as well as moved. The
consensus came out that moving and porting will be treated just as a ported
numbeer and not deleted from the database. The record will be unlocked.
If anyone not attending the meeting has a particular problem with this
procedure please come or call in
to the next meeting.
Jim Joeger had four issues he wanted in the minutes and he said he would
bring these up at the operations
meetings this week also.
-There will be a dual
responsibility for coordinating all 911 test calls
-Call 911 when the number has actually been ported, then again 24 hours
later, when the 911 database has
been updated with the new company ID.
-If a PSAP needs to find out who the local service provider is during the
initial phases of portability, they should call the main service provider
for that NPA/NXX. This will be during the phase that no display is
available on PSAP screens.
-Initiate a call to the Local Service Provider's center (after 911 test
call)once you know who they are and verify that it is the correct location
to trouble report on an ANI
failure for that provider.
A list from NENA should be obtained by all PSAPs of all the company IDs and
their contact numbers.
AT&T, MCI, GTE, CENTEL and Ameritech agree conceptually about the "U" & "M"
transactions. We need consensus from Sprint,TCG and WorldCom on this
Subsequent to this meeting, the Ameritech 911 database will not accept
extracts from any companies without their IDS once we have started populating our database
with the company IDs. We will notify all prior to us starting this
There was a discussion regarding the default PSAP situation for all service
providers in Illinois. There is a difference on where a call defaults
between the Ameritech switches and the other providers. We need to seek a
good resolution to this. We have asked Rick Jones to get PSAPs to
participate in a meeting on May
7th. Location to be determined yet.
Our next meeting in May 16th at 8:30 at 350 Orleans, room number to be sent
a little later.
Please send a representative from each of your companies. Our time is
getting short to finalize these
