Physical or Virtual Collocations?

          Physical or Virtual Collocation
CLECs may order LIS Trunking to the applicable CenturyLink switch. You can choose either Physical or Virtual Collocation to interconnect to CenturyLink networks.

With Physical Collocation, your facilities extend into the co-located equipment at a CenturyLink Wire Center (WC).

With Virtual Collocation, you extend your facilities to a point just outside of the CenturyLink WC. CenturyLink will provide facilities to meet you at that location. Interconnectors donít have a designated or defined space in the CenturyLink Central Office. However, they do have physical equipment which is located there.

In either instance, the CenturyLink WC location of your Physical or Virtual Collocation becomes your POI.
