Recommendation for Reseller/Type 1 Reporting Structure • The code/block holders to whom the numbering resources are assigned shall be responsible to report the name and contact information to the NANPA of any reseller/type 1 carriers who have obtained numbering resources from them. The resellers/type 1 carriers shall then be responsible to report their utilization and forecast data to the NANPA directly.
Recommendation for Reseller/Type 1 Carrier Reporting Structure (continued) • This approach has a greater potential for success in obtaining the desired information. • Establish a minimum threshold regarding the quantity of resources for reporting purposes by resellers/type 1 carriers. • FCC authority might be required to release name and contact information of reseller. • NANPA system changes associated with reporting granularity below the NXX level. • Those type 1 carriers/resellers that do not have full NXX assigned to them may be required to interface with the NANPA.
