The Local Number Portability Code sets out inter-Carrier/CSP operational procedures for the implementation of LNP processes.

The revisions made to the LNP Code and relevant IT Specification Guidelines are:

  • update the LNP Code to remove the requirement to reject a request where the FNN and account number don’t match on a Category A or Category C port notification; and
  • where relevant, ensure that existing validation can continue to match FNN and account number to limit the change only to those that fail this validation. This will ensure any IT and process change is minimised for Carriers/CSPs.

All account validation processes for PNV are to remain as they are.

Requirements for Customer Equipment for connection to a metallic local loop interface of a Telecommunications Network — Part 2: Broadband Australian Standard

DR AS/CA S043.2:2016 (606 KB)

The Requirements for Customer Equipment for connection to a metallic local loop interface of a Telecommunications Network — Part 2: Broadband Standard specifies the requirements for broadband equipment connected to copper wire pairs e.g. DSL modems.

The Standard has been revised to add requirements for VDSL2 modems to support:

  • Upstream Power Backoff in Equipment Class 10v, consistent with the existing requirement for Equipment Classes 10h and 10j to 10n; and
  • Upstream Power Backoff Length Estimation Method (based on ITU T Rec. G.993.2) in Equipment Classes 10h, 10j to 10n, and 10v.

Information on the Working Committee which revised the Standard, including the Terms of Reference can be found here.
