VOIP/TIPToP


Overview

TIPToP is a federally (FCC) tariffed product.  This document is offered to provide an overview of TIPToP Service to potential customers.  Potential customers should also read the FCC tariffs for TIPToP for details on the terms, conditions and pricing for TIPToP service.   Should information in this document differ from information in the TIPToP Tariff the TIPToP Tariff will control.
 

The TIPToP name stands for True Internet Protocol To Public Switched Telephone Network, (or True IP To PSTN).  TIPToP is a new service specifically designed to offer an efficient voice traffic interface between the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) and IP-enabled voice information service (IP-VIS) providers.   TIPToP is for IP enabled voice information service (IP-VIS) Traffic only. 
 

The TIPToP product structure has a One-Way Port Interface that provides connectivity from the IP-VIS provider to the PSTN, as well as a Two-Way Port Interface that provides connectivity from the PSTN to the IP-VIS provider and connectivity between the IP-VIS provider and IXC bound traffic.  
 

One-Way Port Interfaces have a rate structure that provides a Flat Monthly Recurring Rate for the One-Way Port Interface and a Usage rate based on terminating Minutes of Use (MOU) in the LATA in which the calls terminate. In addition to the flat rate monthly charges, all traffic is billed either the Single On-Net Usage Rate for calls terminating to AT&T Company end users, or the Single Off Net Usage rate for calls to non-AT&T Company end users as long as the non-AT&T Company end user is subtended by an AT&T Access Tandem.   For calls using TIPToP to non-AT&T Company end users AT&T pays any compensation due to the third party company (non-AT&T Company) that receives the TIPToP customer’s calls.  (Non-AT&T companies may be CLECs, ILECs, Wireless or other third party providers subtending AT&T Access Tandems).  The TIPToP customer pays the Off-net TIPToP rate to AT&T.  The TIPToP customer does not need individual trunking arrangements, nor does the TIPToP customer need to manage individual business arrangements, with third parties that connect to the TIPToP customer through the AT&T Access Tandems.  The TIPToP customer simply connects to AT&T with the TIPToP Port Interface and pays AT&T the Off-Net Usage Rate for calls that travel to these third parties. 
 

Two-Way Port Interfaces have a rate structure that provides a Flat Monthly Recurring Rate for the Two-Way Port Interface.  Usage charges are not billed by AT&T to the TIPToP customer for permitted call types using the Two-Way Port Interface and AT&T does not pay compensation to the TIPToP customer for calls sent to the TIPToP customer’s IP-VIS Users on a TIPToP Port Interface.    The Two-Way Port Interface permits the TIPToP customer’s IP-VIS Users to receive calls from AT&T Company  and non-AT&T Company end users subtended by AT&T Company Access Tandems.   Two-Way Port interfaces also permit IP-VIS Users to originate IXC bound 1 plus traffic as well as 8XX Toll Free Traffic.  TIPToP customers must use telephone numbers with Two Way Port Interfaces that conform to the North American Dialing Plan and must place telephone numbers in the Local Exchange Routing Guide (LERG) to correctly route to the appropriate Tandem. 
 

One-Way Port Interfaces and Two-Way Port Interfaces provide a bandwidth equivalent of one DS 0 per Port Interface.  For one simple monthly recurring charge per port interface, One-Way Port Interfaces and Two-Way Port Interfaces to the AT&T Access Tandems include: trunk port functionality, facilities from the TIPToP Customer location in the LATA to the AT&T Access Tandems, SS7 transport, Signal Transfer Point (STP) Access, and STP Port,  TIPToP requires a minimum of 6 port interfaces to be purchased on any one facility to an AT&T Access Tandem. 
 

TIPToP is currently available in 13 AT&T States and is purchased on a LATA by LATA basis.
 

IP-VIS providers are responsible for carrying traffic to the LATA and then handing traffic to the TIPToP One Way Port Interfaces in that LATA to terminate calls within the LATA.  
 

IP-VIS providers may also receive traffic in the LATA at a Two-Way Port Interface for their IP-VIS Users.  For traffic sent on a Two Way Port Interface to the IP-VIS Users, the IP-VIS provider is responsible for carrying the traffic from the Two Way Port Interface to their IP-VIS Users.
 

Non-IP-VIS traffic is not permitted on TIPToP.  However, in the event Non-IP-VIS traffic is sent (due to, for example, translation errors or other causes) AT&T will bill a Non-IP-VIS MOU rate for these minutes and will continue to bill in this manner until the Non-IP-VIS traffic is removed.  Customer’s are given notice of Non-IP-VIS traffic on their bill and have up to 60 days to remove such traffic.
 

TIPToP Service requires customers to send accurate CPN with each call.  Calls without CPN, or with inaccurate CPN (for example, calls with a charge number in place of CPN, calls with an altered CPN, calls with CPN that is not a working dialable number, calls with CPN that does not reach the IP-VIS user when dialed, etc.) will be classified as Non-IP-VIS calls and rated at the Non-IP-VIS rate. 
 

Other calls that are determined to be Non-IP-VIS calls will also be rated at the Non-IP-VIS rate. 
 

Once a TIPToP Customer decides to purchase TIPToP service in a LATA the TIPToP customer is required to purchase One Way Port Interfaces to every Tandem in that LATA.   TIPToP Customers are also required to purchase Two-Way Port Interfaces for any IP-VIS Users served by phone numbers in that LATA, and for any other NPA-NXXs, or Phone Numbers the TIPToP Customer has in that LATA.  Two-Way Port Interfaces are only required to those Tandems in the LATA that serve the local calling scope of the phone numbers used by the TIPToP Customers in that LATA. 
 

When TIPToP service is used in a LATA the TIPToP customer is required to use TIPToP service for all traffic between its IP-VIS Users and AT&T and non-AT&T end users in that LATA. (For calls to non-AT&T end users this requirement only applies to those non-AT&T end users subtended by AT&T Access Tandems).  
 

TIPToP customers may use other services for their IP traffic in LATAs in which they have not purchased TIPToP. 
 

For customers using TIPToP Services other terms and conditions apply.  Please consult the TIPToP FCC tariffs for additional details. 
 

For additional information or questions please consult your wholesale account manager. 
 

For customers that do not have a wholesale account manager, please contact Bill Wright at 415-542-0920.
