Small Exchange Carrier Access Billing (SECAB) 15.1

The SECAB Guidelines document has been created to support those providers, or their vendors, who do not conform to the CABS Billing Output Specifications (BOS). These companies generally produce paper bills. This document is intended to provide guidelines for producing complete and verifiable access bills for the customers. These guidelines do not increase the complexity of providing an access bill to the level that the provider can no longer produce its own bill. SECAB is neither a replacement nor a substitute for the CABS BOS. These guidelines cannot establish new requirements for CABS BOS or change existing ones. It is understood that some requirements contained in this document differ and in some instances exceed the BOS paper requirements. This has been done due to the unique nature of the providers providing the bills. This release assigns a new SECAB Pricing Plan Type Indicator value 5 in section 7.4, page 7-284, as a temporary value for Direct Trunk Adjustment which will be included in the current SECAB Issue 15 thus avoiding a release of a new SECAB Issue 16. Mechanized SECAB invoices will have this new temporary value utilized within SECAB Issue 15. See Change History for specific details.


Fire Resistance Criteria - Ignitability Requirements for Equipment Assemblies, Ancillary Non-Metallic Apparatus, and Fire Spread Requirements for Wire and Cable

This standard covers the fire resistance characteristics of equipment assemblies and selected products and materials used within telecommunications network equipment facilities and spaces of similar function. This standard along with the latest published version of ATIS-0600319 shall be used as the means of appraising fire risk within a telecommunications network equipment facility or space with similar function.


Network-to-Customer Electrical Interface - Digital Data at 64 kbit/s and Subrates

This standard provides the requirements for a Network-to-Customer Installation (CI) synchronous digital data at 64 kbit/s and subrates electrical interface, referred to as the Network Interface (NI). Requirements include electrical characteristics, format parameters, and physical characteristics. This standard provides interface compatibility information and is not meant to be an equipment specification. Formerly known as T1.410-2001(R2006).


Guidance for the Use of Updtream Power Back Off Parameters for ITU-T Recommendation G.993.2 Annex A

This ATIS Technical Report provides guidenance on the meaning and for the Upstream Power Back (UPBO) control parameters for ITU-T Recommednation G.993.2 (VDSL2) when used in a North American environment. Two paramaters æaÆ and æbÆ to control UPBO are defined in ITU_T Recommendation G.993.2. This TR explains the meaning of these parameters, ezamples of their use, and guidence to Network Operators and others on appropriate setting of their values.


Electrical Protection for Telecommunications Central Offices and Similar Type Facilities

Telecommunications central offices, data centers, electronic equipment enclosures (EEE), and similar type facilities are often subjected to disturbances from lightning and ac power link faults, either directly or indirectly, through the communications cables and ac power facilities that serve them. This standard provides the minimum electrical protection, grounding, and bonding criteria necessary to mitigate the disruptive and damaging effects of lightning and ac power faults. It is intended to serve as a guide for designers of such facilities in the application of electrical protection, grounding, and bonding as a function of the electrical environment.


Equipment Assemblies -- Fire Propagation Risk Assessment Criteria

The purpose of this standard is to provide fire propagation hazard risk assessment criteria for equipment assemblies used in telecommunications network equipment environments


Cell Broadcast Entity (CBE)-to-Cell Broadcast Center (CBC) Interface Specification, Revision 2

This Standard defines the interface and message transfer protocol between a Cell Broadcast Entity (CBE) and a Cell Broadcast Center (CBC) to support text-based Cell Broadcast Services. This Standard supports the requirements of the FCC Report & Order 16-127 and the FCC Order on Reconsideration 17-143.


Lawfully Authorized Electronic Surveillance (LAES) For Internet Access and Services, Version 2

Internet Access and Services can be obtained by establishing a subscription based arrangement. This standard provides capabilities to lawfully intercept communications of subscription-based Internet Access and Services arrangements.


Calling Name Identification Presentation

This standard is one of a series which defines and describes supplementary services. These services 5 be made available for users with non-ISDN interfaces who access SS7 capable networks and also within the context of an Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN). This standard describes Calling Name Identification Presentation which is a terminating service that provides either the name associated with the calling party number or an indication of privacy or unavailability to the called party.


Canadian Wireless Public Alerting Service (WPAS) LTE Mobile Device Behavior Specification

This document defines a set of requirements for the behavior of WPAS Capable Mobile Devices whenever a WPAS alert, transmitted over a Long Term Evolution (LTE) network, is received. Implementation of the requirements contained within this specification is mobile device manufacturer dependent.
