09/19/12 Product/Process CMP Meeting Mark Coyne – CenturyLink relayed this CR was presented last month and subsequently revised the same day. Mark said the CR was revised to include EVCs combinations and also included the following statement: No Moves, Adds, or Changes on these existing service configurations. Repair will continue to operate business as usual. Mark said there is also a revised effective date which will now be mid November 2012. There will be two notices that are distributed associated with this CR – a level 4 retirement notice and additionally a Technical Publication notice. Mark asked if there were any questions. There were none.

08/15/12 Product/Process CMP Meeting Lee Brummett – CenturyLink presented the CR. Lee said he will be revising this CR to include EVCs combinations. NOTE: CR WAS REVISED ON 8/15/12. REVISIONS ARE AVAILABLE AT http://www.centurylink.com/wholesale/cmp/cr/CRPC073112-1.html. The revision includes the following statement: No Moves, Adds, or Changes on these existing service configurations. Repair will continue to operate business as usual.

Kim Isaacs – Integra asked what “retirement” means. She asked if “retirement” means the current combinations can remain on an account. She asked how this impacts moves/add/changes and if a configuration exists and a change is required, will customers be required to remove the combination.

Lee Brummett – CenturyLink said yes, current combinations that exist today can remain on an account. He said he will need to verify what occurs if there are moves, adds or changes and provide that information later. He said what exists today can stay. Lee said the planned effective is October 15, 2012.

Kim Isaacs – Integra asked what the volumes are and what the business reason was for the change. Lee Brummett – CenturyLink said he did not know the volumes but that there are wholesale customers. Lee said the equipment is no longer supported for these combinations.

Mark Coyne – CenturyLink said we will then keep this as a level 4 notification.

Susan Lorence – CenturyLink asked if we can include the information in the meeting minutes as well as updating the CR. There were no objections.

Kim Isaacs – Integra asked if something happens to the equipment, will it be supported or require a change out.

Lee Brummett – CenturyLink said existing connections will be supported but that he will validate whether there was enough equipment if something happens to an existing combination. Mark Coyne – CenturyLink asked if there were any questions. There were none.
