Transfer of Responsibility e t s

  • Product Description

    • Transfer of a Collocation site to an assuming CLEC from a vacating CLEC.

    • Offered for Caged Physical, Cageless Physical, Virtual, and ICDF Collocation. All other types of Collocation to be transferred will be handled on an Individual Case Basis.

    • Two types of Collocation Transfer of Responsibility:

      • Transfer without working circuits

      • Transfer with working circuits

    • Transfer with working circuits is offered if administration changes are required and does not involve translations activity.

Q w e s t W h o l e s a l e M a r k e t s


Slide14 l.jpg

Transfer of Responsibility e t s

  • Ordering

    • Prior to submitting a Collocation Transfer of Responsibility request:

      • Assuming CLEC is required to have an Interconnection Agreement with Qwest. Also will need to amend any previously-existing ICA if it does not include services to be transferred.

      • Vacating and Assuming CLEC must sign the Collocation Transfer of Responsibility amendment.

    • Process begins by the assuming CLEC submitting the Collocation Transfer of Responsibility Application form and submitting to [email protected] and [email protected]

Q w e s t W h o l e s a l e M a r k e t s


Slide15 l.jpg

Transfer of Responsibility e t s

  • Ordering continued…

    • In addition to the application form the following information will need to be included:

      • Collocation Transfer of Responsibility Spreadsheet, if there are working circuits - providing detail on each working circuit to be transferred.

      • Qwest Transfer Authorization Agreement, signed by the vacating and assuming CLECs.

      • Letter of Authorization, if the Collocation site has a CLEC-to-CLEC (Direct) arrangement, signed by the assuming CLEC and the CLEC partner.

      • Email verification from the vacating CLEC representing that all of its end users have been notified of the transfer, if there are working circuits.

    • If the transfer is with working circuits, the CLEC must submit LSRs. Circuits submitted via an ASR will be processed based on the information provided on the Collocation Transfer of Responsibility Spreadsheet.

    • At the completion of the transfer, the vacating CLEC, assuming CLEC and Qwest will sign the Qwest Services Transfer Agreement.
