Symptoms


Orders are validating with NC/NCI errors. These fields are on the Trunking form which is not included on the Translations Only order.

We may get Translations Only or CIC only orders from Carriers to open CICs in End Offices behind Tandems. These Tandems can be in another LEC territory. For this reason, we will not have
records of those trunks in our system, because the trunks don’t reside in our switches. They reside in another LECs switch. But because we have EO behind that Tandem switch, we have to open the carrier’s CIC in our EO.


These ASRs will have no Circuit IDs and they are called “CIC Only” or “Translations Only” orders. There is no design work (CLR) to be done and they only need to flow from Access Services to NSC to CABS.

We created a Provisioning Plan in Production that includes a RID and DLRD date, because we were told that a DLR MUST be issued to sign off due date.

If there is no Circuit ID to design, how can you issue a DLR on a non-existent circuit and how can provisioning even open it up. We decided to test this.
