I'm not sure what you are referring to with Bellcore standards?  I can't see it mentioned at all in the document.

This document is a Comms Alliance document, not an NBN Co document.

This spec is basically about the interface from the UNI-V port to the Service Provider.

Another exists for the electrical specs from the port to the phone, but its all pretty much 'Australian' (ie S002/S003 will work with the analog phone you have today that is A-ticked etc...)


I'll cc in Ross Millan who was on WG-37 and who may be able to contribute to any discussion if anyone has something they are interested in.

HI folks

I'm having a look at the new guide to NBN  WHOLESALE SERVICE

The draft guideline is available here:

coments close May 30

I notice that NBN CO has chosen to go with the Bellcore "standard"
rather than ETSI which is what I thought most people used for their
ATAs and voip services. This means that vendors will have to supply
two types of customer equipment and we won't have interoperability...

Probably a separate issue... though it seems a lot of this is embedded
into these definitions.

Thoughts anyone?
