NRIC V Focus Group 2:

Network Reliability

Focus Group 2A1 on Best


Chair: Rick Harrison, Telcordia

Focus Group 2B1 on Data

Reporting and Analysis

Chair: P.J. Aduskevicz, AT&T

  • Evaluate and report on how well the Best Practices are being implemented by carriers

  • Update existing Best Practices as appropriate

  • Implement voluntary one year trial of outages of ISP, CMRS, Satellite, Cable and Data Networking Service Providers, that are likely to have significant public impact

  • Evaluate outage reporting requirements and guidelines currently used by wireline carriers to improve the quality of outage reporting

  • Evaluate and report on the reliability and availability of the PSTN utilizing NRSC quarterly reports

Focus Group 2A2 on Best

Practices Packet Switching

Chair: Karl Rauscher, Lucent

Focus Group 2B2 on Data Reporting

and Analysis for Packet Switching

Chair: Michael Caloyannides, Miretek Systems

  • Raise awareness in Packet Networks of existing Best Practices

  • Determine which existing Best Practices are applicable to Packet Networks

  • Monitor Voluntary Outage Reporting to determine Best Practices implications

  • Continue to monitor FCC reportable outages for Best Practices implications

  • Define exactly how packet networks fail by identifying all known major ways of failing

  • Extrapolate from how packet networks fail what a packet network outage is

  • Determine what would make sense to report as a packet network outage

Infrastructure Protection

Network Reliability Steering Committee

Mission: The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions’ Network Reliability Steering Committee

(NRSC) is a consensus – based industry committee. The NRSC will analyze the industry’s

reporting of network outages to identify trends, distribute the results of its findings to industry,

and where applicable, refer matters to appropriate industry forums for further resolution in

order to help ensure a continued high level of network reliability.

Data Assembly & Analysis Team

Bill Klein


Procedural Error Team

Clyde Miller

Nortel Networks

Facilities Solutions Team

John Healy

Telcordia Technologies

  • Investigated Procedural Errors as a category unto itself rather than a subset of existing categories

  • Made recommendations to improve outage reporting in areas of product design, documentation, training and root cause analysis

  • Recommend Procedures for data analysis

  • Perform data analysis of outage reports

  • Issue quarterly and annual results of outage reports

  • Analyze FCC facility reliability data

  • Provide input to cross industry groups aimed at facility damage prevention

  • Develop and evolve best practices

Common Ground Alliance

Common Ground Alliance ( “Call, Design, Locate and Dig Safely”

Alliance works cooperatively to

  • Foster shared responsibility

  • Support research

  • Develop public awareness and education programs

  • Identify and disseminate “best practices”

  • Serve as a data clearinghouse

    Common Ground Study Identified Best Practices for Damage Prevention Such as

  • Encourage participation by all stakeholders in One Call Center Program

  • Include location of existing utilities on plans

  • Record actual placement of utilities upon installation

  • Utilize technologies and methods that render underground facilities easy to locate

  • Call before you dig

  • Know local one-call laws, policies and practices before beginning excavation activities
