Carriers route calls for the Toll-Free Numbers (TFNs). There are of 2 types of Carriers:
- IntraLATA Carriers are carriers that are used at the querying Service Control Point (SCP) to route IntraLATA calls (within the LATA) to the TFN.
- InterLATA Carriers are carriers that are used at the querying SCP to route InterLATA calls (between different LATAs) to the TFN.
By selecting the “List” icon in the IntraLATA or InterLATA Carriers section creates a “Choose from the list” pop-up window with available IntraLATA or InterLATA Carriers (depending on which section is being populated). You can either search the list for carriers or manually scroll to find the desired carriers. After you have located the appropriate IntraLATA or InterLATA carriers for the Template Record (TAD) (also known as a TR), you must select the check box to the left of the Carriers and then choose the “Select” button.
You can enter the Access Customer Name Abbreviation (ACNA) or Carrier Identification Code (CIC) in the search field to locate a specific Carrier or scroll down the list (carriers are listed in alphabetical order). You can only select Carriers from the Resp Org with whom they have active Carrier Agreements. The Carrier Agreements with Entities (CAG) page for TR input is maintained by the Resp Org managing the Carrier.
- Select the “Add” icon available to the right of the listed carrier entries to add additional Carrier Values for the selected IntraLATA or InterLATA Carrier type.
- Select the “Delete Item” icon available on the left of the listed entry to delete the selected Carrier Values for the IntraLATA or InterLATA Carrier type.
- Select the “Delete” icon in the right hand corner of the IntraLATA or InterLATA Carrier portion of the page to delete all the listed entries of Carrier Values.
