I.          SERVICE DESCRIPTION: Metro Private Line Access Services are provided by MCI Legacy Company. Metro Private Line Access Services is an interstate service that provides point-to-point or multi-point service between IntraLATA or designated corridor locations giving the Customer dedicated access to private telecommunications networks, wide area networks, connections with information service providers and interexchange carriers who transport interstate traffic.

 

1.         Services Types

                              

1.1       Digital Metro Private Line Access Service. Digital Metro Private Line Access Service is available as follows:

 

1.1.1    Voice Grade Service. Voice grade service provides frequency transmission capability in the nominal frequency range of 300 to 3000 Hz and may be terminated utilizing two-wire or four-wire circuits. Voice grade service can carry both analog and digital data.  Effective August 12, 2014, Voice Grade Service is grandfathered and is no longer available to new Metro Private Line Customers.  Existing Metro Private Line Access Service Customers may add, move, change, and disconnect Voice Grade Services, with the understanding that renewals of Voice Grade Service will not be permitted.

 

1.1.2    Digital Data Service. Digital data service provides the duplex four-wire transmission of synchronous serial data at rates ranging from 2.4 to 64 kbps (DS0). Effective August 12, 2014, Digital Data Service is grandfathered and is no longer available to new Metro Private Line Customers.  Existing Metro Private Line Access Service Customers may add, move, change, and disconnect Digital Data Services, with the understanding that renewals of Digital Data Services will not be permitted.

 

1.1.3    High Capacity Service (DS-1). High capacity service provides transmission of synchronous serial data at speeds of 1.544 or 2.048 Mbps. Transmission of intermediate bit rate channels in multiple increments of either 56 or 64 kbps up to 1.544 Mbps is also available.

 

1.1.4    Very High Capacity Service (DS-3). Very high capacity service provides transmission of synchronous serial data at speeds of 44.736 Mbps or faster.

 

1.2       Metro Private Line Optical SONET Service. (Private Carriage Services)

Metro Private Line Optical SONET Service provides transmission of data at speeds of 155 Mbps or higher through an optical signal on the Synchronous Optical Network (SONET). OC3N (155.52 Mbps) and OC12 (622.08 Mbps) speeds are available in either concatenated or channelized configurations. OC48 (2.488 Gbps) and OC192 (9.953 Gbps) are available for TypeN 1 and Type 4a access network configurations in either concatenated or channelized form. Optical SONET Dedicated Multi-point Service is only available in Type 1 network configurations. Optical SONET Dedicated Multi-point Service with Type 1 network configurations ordered prior to August 31, 2010 in areas that are now designated as Type 4, will remain as Type 1. Customers may add Premises or Hub Connections and Appearances to such Type 1 network configurations.

 

Each Metro Private Line Optical SONET Service circuit connection requires a SONET or Ethernet Interface. An Interface is the connection of Metro Private Line Optical SONET to a Customer Premises or hub. There are two interfaces per circuit. SONET Interfaces are available at the following speeds: (i) 1.544 Mbps (DS-1) and 44.736 Mbps (DS-3) on a digital signal basis; and (ii) 51.84 Mbps (STS-1), 155.52 Mbps (OC3 and OC3c), 622.08 Mbps (OC12 and OC12c), 2.488 Gbps (OC48 and OC48c), and 9.953 Gbps (OC192) on an optical signal (SONET) basis. Where it is technically feasible, differing SONET Interfaces may be used on a circuit.

 

Ethernet Interfaces are available in a 10/100 electrical or 1 Gbps optical connection. Monitoring is provided for Ethernet Interfaces outages 24 hours per day.

 

Metro Private Line Optical SONET Service, except for Optical SONET Dedicated Multi-point Service and Type 4 network configurations, is provided over the MCI Legacy Company’s shared optical local network. Optical SONET Dedicated Multi-point Service is provided using equipment and optical facilities that are dedicated to Customer’s service arrangement. Type 4 network configurations are provided via MCI Legacy Company Facilities, Verizon Telecom Company or Verizon Telecom Company-affiliate facilities.
