CUSTOMER SITE READINESS REQUIREMENTS

Local Contact (LCON) – The party ordering service from NITEL must provide a local contact’s name and phone number with whom the NITEL representative can speak regarding scheduling, building access and problem resolution, should the need arise. In order for NITEL to confirm the firm provisioning interval, the LCON must:

  • Be familiar with the location where service has been requested
  • Have decision making power to address the service requirements requested
  • Have the authority to confirm the ready date for all requirements that are responsibility of the customer

Note: For resale orders, Customer is responsible for coordinating its end user’s compliance with the site readiness requirements listed herein and ensuring that the end user meets those requirements on a timely basis in order to avoid service order delays.

Fiber Cable Supporting Structure – A clear underground or aerial path is required from the property line where NITEL facilities exist, to the telephone equipment room to support the entrance fiber. For example, if conduit is used:

  • Minimum 2” conduit with a pull rope from the property line to the point of entrance. A 4” conduit is recommended, and 4” conduit – schedule 40 is required in some regions.
  • Minimum 3’ sweeping radius – no right angles – no more than three 90˚ angles without a pull box. Dimensions for pull box space – 12” x 12” x 18”
  • A clear path with conduit or cable tray needs to be provided from the point of entrance to the demarcation location where the equipment will be placed (if applicable).
  • Customer is encouraged to share this information with your Electrical Contractor

Power – Customer is required to provide permanent dedicated power for the equipment being installed.

Grounding – If the Customer site will be using a stand-alone, centralized bulk power plant (now or at any time in the future), then grounding is required as follows: #2 stranded ground is required from the Customer’s earth electrode system to the equipment room. This will be connected to a grounding bus bar, or otherwise directly connected to different components. A #6 stranded ground is required from the grounding bus bar to the network equipment.

Wall Backboard – 4’ x 8’ x 3/4” Fire rated Plywood fastened to studs. In some instances, at Customer request, a Customer-provided bay can be used in lieu of the wall backboard. This alternate arrangement must be discussed with the NITEL engineering representative.

  • No expedites of quoted due dates will be considered until the room is ready for service.
  • The Customer must have the site ready by the FOC Date to avoid any delays in providing the requested service. If delays are anticipated, the customer should contact their Nitel representative as soon as they are aware of the problem, so Nitel work forces can be re-scheduled.

CUSTOMER NOT READY (CNR)

If on the LEC FOC Date, Customer is not ready to use the Service (“CNR”) for any reason, including but not limited to, power or interconnecting facilities at the Customer site being unavailable, the unavailability of services or other products provided by a party other than Nitel, or Customer not providing the necessary access to the Customer location, Customer will promptly either accept for billing or cancel (under Section 10) and re-order the portion(s) of the Service that are ready for activation.  If Customer will not be ready to accept the Service on the LEC FOC Date, Customer must provide Nitel with written notice to orders@nitelusa.com and provisioning@nitelusa.com at least five (5) business days prior to the LEC FOC Date.  Upon receipt of timely notice from Customer, Nitel will attempt to change the Order with the underlying carrier.  Customer will be liable for payment of any applicable change fees as set forth in the Service Guide.  If Nitel is unable to change the Order with the underlying carrier or if Customer fails to provide the required notice and is not ready to accept Service on the LEC FOC Date and Customer chooses not to cancel the Service, Customer will be liable for payment of a monthly CNR fee which will be equal to the MRC for the Service.  Customer will be liable for payment of the CNR fee until such time that Customer is ready to accept Service.  Nitel reserves the right to cancel the Service at any time on or after the LEC FOC Date and charge Customer the applicable cancellation fee for the Service in addition to the CNR Fee (if applicable) up until the time of cancellation.

CHANGE ORDER

Service will be provisioned according to the location information and technical specifications detailed on the Service Order Form.  Changes and modifications to this information must be submitted in writing to orders@nitelusa.com referencing your Nitel provided Order Number.  Each change will incur a $500 Design Change Fee per location.

eFax Service Agreement

Warranty Disclaimers/Disclaimers of Liability

Customer agrees that NITEL’s Voice Services are provided “as is”.  NITEL is not responsible for invalid destinations, transmission errors, or corruption or security of Customer’s communications. NITEL does not represent, warrant, or guarantee the Voice Services to be uninterrupted or error-free. Customer understands and agrees that delays and disruptions of Voice Services are completely beyond NITEL’s control.

Customer agrees that Customer’s use of the Voice Services is Customer’s sole responsibility, is solely at Customer’s own risk, and is subject to all applicable local, state, national and international laws and regulations.

Customer agrees not to connect monitoring services or devices, such as security systems or medical monitoring devices, or the like, to the Voice Services. In addition, NITEL makes no representation, warranty, or guarantee of any kind that the Voice Services will operate without errors when used to connect (a) any device that requires a dial-up network connection, including, but not limited to, satellite television receivers, modems and digital video recorders; or (b) a facsimile machine.  Customer waives any claim against NITEL and/or its affiliates, officers, directors, owners, agents, underlying service providers, suppliers, licensors and licensees for any injury and/or damages arising from interference with, or disruption of, any devices described in this section by the Voice Services.

911 Service Limitations and Disclaimers

THE VOICE SERVICES DO NOT PROVIDE ACCESS TO EMERGENCY SERVICES VIA “911” IN THE SAME MANNER AS TRADITIONAL LANDLINE TELEPHONE SERVICE. THE VOICE SERVICES WILL ATTEMPT TO ROUTE 911 CALLS TO AN EMERGENCY SERVICES AGENCY SERVING THE ADDRESS ASSOCIATED WITH CUSTOMER’S ACCOUNT IN NITEL’S RECORDS, BUT NITEL DOES NOT REPRESENT, WARRANT, OR GUARANTEE IN ANY MANNER THAT ANY CALL TO 911 OR OTHER EMERGENCY SERVICES WILL BE COMPLETED; THAT ANY SUCH CALL WILL BE DELIVERED IN A MANNER THAT INCLUDES INFORMATION CORRECTLY IDENTIFYING THE NUMBER OR ADDRESS FROM WHICH THE CALL WAS PLACED (OFTEN KNOWN AS “ENHANCED 911” or “E911”); OR THAT ANY SUCH CALL WILL BE DELIVERED TO THE CORRECT RECIPIENT.  

Customer cannot use the Voice Services to call 911 in the event of a power interruption at Customer’s Voice Services location or on any portion of the electrical network NITEL uses to deliver the Voice Services to Customer’s Voice Services location.

If the broadband service or modem or other equipment Customer’s Voice Services uses is malfunctioning for any reason or is installed incorrectly, Customer will not be able to place or receive 911 calls.

Following a power outage, Customer may have to reset its Integrated Access Device (IAD)(by disconnecting and then reconnecting the device’s power cord) in order to restore the Voice Services.

NITEL will attempt to deliver information to the agency receiving a 911 call that will identify the telephone number and address assigned to the IAD from which the call was placed. However, NITEL does not represent, warrant, or guarantee in any manner that the Voice Services will be able to correctly deliver such information. If a call is placed to 911 using the Voice Services and such call is disconnected or the caller is unable to speak or otherwise communicate his/her location to the agency receiving the 911 call, the agency receiving that call may not be able to determine Customer’s location or call back. Customer will ensure that anyone using the Voice Service to call 911 will immediately tell the dispatcher Customer’s location (or the location of the emergency, if different).

If Customer has activated Service features such as Call Forwarding, Call Blocking or Do Not Disturb at the time a call is placed to 911 through the Voice Services and the call is interrupted, the agency receiving the 911 call may not be able to call back at the number from which the 911 call was placed.

Customer agrees not to attempt to use the IAD from any location other than the service address associated with Customer’s service account in NITEL’s records. If Customer’s IAD is moved to a location other than the address associated with Customer’s account in NITEL’s records, a 911 call placed from Customer’s IAD will be directed to the 911 response center associated with Customer’s service address, not the location of Customer’s IAD. In addition, the Service will attempt to transmit information to the 911 responder that a call is originating from the address in NITEL’s records, not from Customer’s IAD’s new location. If Customer uses the Voice Services to call 911, the caller should immediately tell the responder the caller’s location (or the location of the emergency, if different). It is Customer’s sole responsibility to ensure that NITEL has the correct service address for the Voice Services. Calls placed from an incorrectly provisioned e-911 service, due to sending calls from an un-provisioned number or due to NITEL receiving incorrect information from Customer will result in a $350.00 service charge to Customer.

For technical reasons, there is a greater possibility that a 911 call placed using the Voice Services will result in a busy signal or take longer to answer, as compared to traditional 911 calls.

A 911 call placed using the Voice Services may not be compatible with all types of TDD, TTY or similar devices for the hearing impaired. NITEL does not represent, warrant, or guarantee in any manner that any such device will be able to successfully communicate with the agency responding to a 911 call placed using the Voice Services.

Customer agrees to inform all individuals present at Customer’s Voice Services location, and others who may use the Voice Services, about the above limitations on the Voice Services’ ability to support 911 or E911 capability.  

Customer agrees to maintain an alternative means of reaching 911 from the Voice Services location(s), such as a wireless phone, in addition to the Voice Services.

DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY, INCLUDING 911 SERVICE LIABILITIES: NITEL DISCLAIMS ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR 911 SERVICE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE CONDUCT OF LOCAL EMERGENCY RESPONSE CENTERS. NITEL DOES NOT HAVE ANY CONTROL OVER ANY LOCAL EMERGENCY RESPONSE CENTER. THEREFORE, NITEL IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WHETHER THEY ANSWER CALLS USING THE VOICE SERVICES, HOW THEY ANSWER CALLS USING THE VOICE SERVICES, OR HOW THEY HANDLE VOICE SERVICES CALLS.  NEITHER NITEL NOR ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AFFILIATES OR AGENTS, INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS, OR ANY OTHER SERVICE PROVIDER THAT FURNISHES ANY SERVICES OR CUSTOMER PREMISES EQUIPMENT TO CUSTOMER IN CONNECTION WITH NITEL’S VOICE SERVICES MAY BE HELD LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM, DAMAGE, OR LOSS, FINE, PENALTY, COST, AND EXPENSE (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ATTORNEY’S FEES) BY, OR ON BEHALF OF, CUSTOMER OR ANY THIRD PARTY OR USER OF VOICE SERVICES, RELATING TO NITEL’S VOICE SERVICES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, 911 DIALING, OR ANY CUSTOMER PREMISES EQUIPMENT.

Certain Services Not Supported

The Voice Services cannot be used to place the following types of calls: 900-, 976-, 1010xxx (sometimes known as “dial-around” calls), and “0+” calling (such as collect calls or third party billing). In addition, the Voice Service may not support some types of “N11” calls (such as 311, 511, etc.) other than 911 and 411 calling.

Calling Party Number

Neither Customer nor NITEL will take any steps to misrepresent or conceal the nature, origin or destination of any of Customer’s traffic.  Customer will use all reasonable efforts to transmit in its signaling the Calling Party Number (CPN) or equivalent information regarding the end user originating each call.  NITEL will transmit all of the signaling information it receives from Customer.

Certified IP Originated Traffic

All of Customer’s traffic delivered to NITEL for termination is and will at all times be IP Originated from an end user’s (i.e., dialing party’s) originating equipment.  “IP Originated” shall mean voice traffic which (a) utilizes TCP/IP as a transmission protocol from an end user’s (i.e. dialing party’s) originating equipment to a TCP/IP gateway in Customer’s network and (b) constitutes “Information Services” or “Enhanced Services” according to the regulations of the Federal Communications Commission.  If Customer delivers traffic to NITEL traffic which is not IP Originated, Customer shall indemnify and hold harmless NITEL from any losses, claims or other damages of whatever kind arising from, or related to, NITEL’s termination of, or representation of such traffic as being IP Originated.  Further NITEL may: i) charge Customer an incremental $.08 per minute for such traffic which Customer cannot establish was IP Originated; and/or ii) immediately terminate the Service Schedule without liability.

Theft of Service/Lawful Purposes Only

Customer may not use or obtain NITEL’s Services and/or Voice Services in any manner that avoids NITEL policies and procedures, including an illegal, fraudulent, improper, or inappropriate manner.  Customer will notify NITEL immediately if Customer believes that the Service and/or Voice Service is being stolen, fraudulently used, or otherwise being used in an unauthorized manner, or if Customer’s Customer Premises Equipment is lost or stolen. When Customer notifies NITEL of one of these events, Customer must provide the account number and a detailed description of the circumstances of the theft, fraudulent use, or unauthorized use of the service. If Customer fails to notify NITEL in a timely manner, NITEL may disconnect the Services and/or Voice Services and impose additional charges against Customer. Until Customer notifies NITEL and NITEL takes action to prevent use of service using commercially reasonable efforts, Customer will be liable for all use of NITEL’s service using a device and/or Customer Premises Equipment lost or stolen from Customer and any stolen, fraudulent, or unauthorized use of NITEL’s service whether or not it involves a lost or stolen device or Customer Premises Equipment.

Data Services

Nitel Data Services refers to certain products listed in a NITEL-approved order form (“Order”) and obtained by Customer under the Agreement.   Data Services include:

  1. Internet
  2. MPLS
  3. Private Line
  4. Ethernet

Nitel Data Services are provided using a variety of access technologies.  Nitel reserves the right to utilize whatever access technology it chooses to deliver a Data Service to a Customer.  The specific access technology used to deliver a Customer’s Data Service will be disclosed upon request.  Customer requests to utilize a specific access technology may affect Data Service availability, pricing and terms.  The Service Level Agreement for each of Nitel’s Data Services may be found here.

Service Availability

Nitel uses a variety of proprietary and vendor provided service availability tools to determine access technology and bandwidth availability for each service address on each Service Order.  Once Nitel begins processing a Data Service order for a specific service location, it may be determined that a specific access technology or bandwidth option is not available, or requires additional costs.  Nitel will notify Customer in writing of changes to service availability, access technology or additional cost prior to the implementation of the Data Service for that service location.  Depending on the changes required, Customer may approve the change of service by email response to Nitel or by working with the Nitel to provide authorization via a new Service Order for the effected service location.  If Customer does not agree to the changes or additional cost, Customer has the right to cancel the order for the service location without charge or penalty.  If the customer does not respond within 10 calendar days of Nitel’s notice of changes to service availability or cost, Nitel will cancel the Service Order for the specific service location.

Customer Premises Equipment

Customer Premises Equipment

The term Customer Premises Equipment (“CPE”) refers to those items of equipment listed in a NITEL-approved order form (“Order”) and obtained by Customer under the Agreement.   CPE includes appropriate licenses to use related software provided in connection with CPE and all parts, cables, repairs, additions and accessories to CPE.

Delivery of CPE

NITEL will use reasonable efforts to deliver CPE to Customer according to a mutually-agreed schedule.  All delivery dates provided by NITEL are approximate and are based on the then current lead-times and available inventory. NITEL will not be liable for failure to meet delivery or installation completion dates.

NITEL will pay for the shipment of CPE to Customer’s designated site(s) in the United States set forth in the Order. If Customer is not ready to accept delivery at the designated site, Customer must notify NITEL at least thirty (30) days before the delivery date to avoid special handling charges.

NITEL will provide telephone-based installation assistance to Customer and/or Customer’s designated technician(s).

Termination and Loss:

Upon termination/expiration of any Service, or when Customer replaces/upgrades CPE, Customer must return terminated or replaced/upgraded CPE to NITEL at Customer’s own expense within 15 days of termination or replacement/upgrade. NITEL will provide Customer with return instructions. Customer must deliver CPE to NITEL in the same condition as it was when first delivered to Customer, normal wear and tear excepted, and give NITEL written notice of such return. If CPE is not returned Customer will be invoiced for the unreturned CPE using the price tables listed below.

If any CPE, in whole or in part, is lost, stolen, damaged, or destroyed, or is taken in any condemnation or similar proceeding (an “Event of Loss”), Customer will immediately notify NITEL.  Customer must immediately restore the affected CPE to good condition and working order, replace the affected item with identical CPE and software in good condition and transfer clear title and any sublicense to NITEL, or Customer will be invoiced for the effected CPE using the price tables listed below.

NITEL may invoice and collect from Customer all charges due under this section as a single amount.  Customer may not sell or transfer title to any CPE without the express written consent of NITEL.

Title, Personal Property and UCC’s

Title and Personal Property. NITEL will have title to CPE. Customer acquires only the opportunity to use CPE for the Term. CPE will at all times remain personal property regardless of its manner of attachment. NITEL may, at its own expense, affix plates or markings to CPE indicating NITEL’s ownership interest. Customer may not remove such plates or markings. Customer, at its own expense, will at all time keep CPE free and clear of all liens and encumbrances except for those arising through NITEL, and otherwise cooperate to defend NITEL’s interest in CPE and to maintain the status of CPE as personal property. As between NITEL and Customer, Customer will bear the entire risk of loss, theft, casualty, destruction or damage to the CPE following its delivery to Customer, from any cause whatsoever (collectively, “CPE Loss”), until returned to NITEL. Customer will indemnify, defend and hold harmless NITEL, its affiliates, and contractors for any CPE Loss.  Customer agrees to advise NITEL in writing within five (5) business days of any CPE Loss.  In no event will CPE Loss relieve Customer of the obligation to pay NITEL any amounts due hereunder.

Maintenance

Customer shall allow NITEL reasonable access to the CPE.  If NITEL CPE requires maintenance or repair, NITEL or its independent contractors/agents shall either arrange to repair the CPE at Customer’s premises or ship an equivalent pre-configured replacement to Customer. Customer shall return any faulty CPE to NITEL within ten (10) days of receiving the replacement equipment or Customer will be invoiced for the effected CPE using the price tables listed above.

Customer shall reimburse NITEL, on a time and materials basis as documented in an invoice, for the entire cost to repair and/or replace any of the CPE in the event that CPE requires replacement due to (a) misuse, (b) failure to exercise reasonable care, (c) altering original NITEL configuration, (d) damage, (e) theft, or (f) disaster. Any service interruptions due to equipment repair or replacement due to (a) misuse, (b) failure to exercise reasonable care, (c) altering original NITEL configuration, (d) damage, (e) theft, or (f) disaster, for any Nitel provided product will not be eligible for service outage credits under the applicable service level agreement(s).
