If you build a Customer Record (CAD) (also known as a CR), Template Record (TAD) (also known as a TR) and/or Pointer Record (PAD) (also known as PR) with Canadian routing in the TFNRegistry™ (tfnregistry.somos.com) and it is changed into an Active status, it will include the Bell Canada Service Control Point (SCP) (BX01). Please be aware of the following limitations of such CRs, TRs and PRs as described:
- BX01 supports only the “Basic Customer Record” portion of a CR as well as CRs that are composed of a CR and Call Processing Record (CPR) that contains only one row. Please Note: It is best if the first column of the CPR contains a decision node and all routing in the Canadian Areas of Service (AOS) should be defined on a single CPR row (e.g. LATA = 888).
- BX01 does not support TRs. Therefore, the TFNRegistry will download the associated PRs to BX01 formatted as regular CRs (i.e., CAD plus CPR and the optional Label Definitions (LAD) based on the PR and its associated TR).
- BX01 does not support Toll-Free Numbers (TFNs) that terminate at a Plain Old Telephone System (POTS) number.
- BX01 only accepts Carrier Identification Code (CIC) codes that are listed on the Network Allowed Carriers (NAC) page. A CPR branch that routes only to Canada via BX01 can only use the CICs listed on the NAC page.
- BX01 does not support routing via 2 different carriers within the Canadian AOS.
- BX01 might not support all Responsible Organizations (Resp Orgs) ID’s; therefore, if you notice BX01 is rejecting all of your records, please contact the Help Desk for assistance.
- BX01 does not support the Customer Record Audit (CRA) portion of the CRA/Customer Record Resend (CRR) page. If you attempt to submit a CRA for BX01, the TFNRegistry will return the following error message, “Message not queued; no response from SCP”.
- Because BX01 does not support TRs, the CRR portion of the CRA/CRR page of a retrieved TR may show a status of ‘OK’ for BX01, yet this CRR status for BX01 means that the PRs will be downloaded to BX01 as regular CRs.
