Activity Log

August 12, 2010 Access Service Ordering Subcommittee

Cindy Shope (CenturyLink) explained the issue.

It was noted that the business need was to not delay the due date since additional work is
required when a wireless tower is involved.

Participants reviewed the proposed changes to the ASR Form.

Participants reviewed the proposed changes to the data elements in the 001 practice.

It was suggested that a new field be created rather than including a wireless tower
indicator as part of the WSI field.

There were concerns on including location information on the ASR, since it is not a part
of CLLI codes, design codes or another indicator.

Another suggestion was to include the tower indicator as part of a CLONES record. It
was stated that the TAG process to update the CLONES record takes time.

It was noted that the WSI field was developed to identify when a new site survey would
help identify that the location is a tower.

Ms. Shope stated that she would revisit the Issue internally and bring it back for
discussion during the October 6 ASO meeting.

Agreement Reached:
Issue 3397 will remain in Active Status.
