Re: Request for clarification with respect to the scope of the network interconnection proceeding - Telecom Notice of Consultation 2011-206
The Commission is in receipt of a letter dated 10 June 2011 from TELUS Communications Company (TELUS) regarding the scope of the network interconnection proceeding. In its letter, TELUS requested that the Commission confirm that the following matters raised by various parties in their 2 June 2011 interventions are outside the scope of this proceeding:
- geographic portability - porting of numbers outside home exchange;
- pricing of shared-cost interconnection facilities; and
- co-location issues.
In a letter dated 14 June 2011, Rogers Communications Partnership (Rogers) submitted that the issues of the shared cost treatment of facilities leased from the incumbent local exchange carriers (ILECs) and geographic number portability are important issues for a potential voice Internet Protocol (IP)-to-IP interconnection regime, and are properly within the scope of this proceeding.
Commission staff notes that the Commission explicitly excluded items 1 and 2 above from its updated action plan for reviewing regulatory measures, and thus these items were not included within the scope of this proceeding. Commission staff further notes that the reasons stated in the updated action plan for not reviewing items 1 and 2 above, would remain valid in the event the Commission establishes an IP-to-IP interconnection regime. Consequently, Commission staff confirms that matters related to both geographic telephone number portability and the pricing of leased facilities used for network interconnection arrangements are outside the scope of the network interconnection proceeding.
With regard to item 3 above, Commission staff notes that the Commission specifically limited the scope of this proceeding to matters related to wholesale services assigned to the interconnection category in the essential service decision . Given that co-location service was not assigned to that category, Commission staff confirms that matters related to co-location service are also outside the scope of the network interconnection proceeding.
