ECC Report ECC Report - Provision of caller location information from private networks
ECC Report 225 concluded that a procedure should be established in order to be able to pinpoint the location of calls made to emergency services within corporate networks. This report willl examine the options, the problems and notably the legal issues as the regulatory framework in Europe does not apply to private networks.

ECC Report Distribution and implementation of E.164 numbers across the electronic communications supply chain

In September 2017, the WG NaN Strategy Task Force suggested that PT FNI could look at studying the sub-assignment of numbers. PT FNI - based on a questionnaire -  came to the conclusion that in  most countries sub-assignment of E.164 (and in some cases E.212) is allowed or an accepted practice. In some countries there are  rules defined in the numbering regulations; in others sub-assignment is not explicitly addressed in the regulations; in a few countries  sub-assignment is explicitly forbidden.

Sub-assignment of numbering resources may be defined as the practice where all, or part, of unassigned E.164 number block is used by another provider on the basis of an agreement with the original assignee. Sub-assignment is different from number portability and the transfer between providers of an assigned number block which is authorised by the NRA. With the sub-assignment practice, the sub-assignee is allowed to provide to its clients the use of numbers received in sub-assignment.

The work-item has as first objective to create a common understanding of the concept of sub-assignment. Based on that the pro’s and cons of sub-assignment will be assessed. Also numbering regulations/good practices containing rights and obligations e.g. to address the identified problems will be developed with special focus on the finding that sub-assignment of numbering resources inevitably leads to a loss of control by the Number Plan Administrator.  Enforceability of the proposed regulations will also a special point of attention.

During a web meeting on 17 September 2018, PT FNI participants progressed work on a Draft ECC Report on the sub-assignment of E.164 numbering resources. During the web meeting the concept of number hosting was discussed in detail. It had previously been agreed that number hosting should be outside of the scope of the sub-assignment report. However, during the discussion it became clear that number hosting raises the same concerns for CEPT administrations regarding transparency in the assignment and use of E.164 numbers and it was agreed to broaden the scope of the report to also include hosting. It should be noted that in the case of hosting, the lack of transparency is not caused by sub-assignment but by the agreements primary assignees (or sub-assignees) enter into with other network operators to have their numbers hosted.

ECC Report

Regulatory Analysis of Over-The-Air Provisioning of E.212 and E.118 Resources 

The standardisation of the eSIM (or soft SIM) to facilitate Over The Air switching is currently being considered by GSMA and ETSI TC SCP and there are also non-standardised solutions already available on the market. The aim of this work is to study the implications following the use of eSIM in changing the electronic communications service provider (ESP) in these scenarios and to provide guidance on resolving the issues identified report.

ECC Report Regulatory impact on NP following migration to an all-IP environment
This ECC Report will analyse the regulatory impact of moving to new solutions for NP in an all-IP environment. The report will describe the number portability scenarios in an all-IP environment, including different routing solutions and NP database interaction with the IP routing database. Following this analysis the regulatory impact will be assessed regarding the migration process, legacy issues and whether or not new regulations are required.

ECC Report ECC Report on CLI Spoofing
Calling/Caller ID spoofing is a technique where the information displayed in the CLI field is manipulated with the intention of deceiving the called party into thinking that the call originated from another person, entity or location. It is very often used by fraudsters to take advantage of the inherent trust that end-users have in the integrity of CLI information to facilitate scams. But also some operators use CLI spoofing for illegal rerouting/arbitrage schemes (e.g. roaming non EU- originated traffic). Manipulation of CLI can also be a part of a legitimate activity and this adds complexity.

In this work item the ECC will address :
- the legal aspects (prohibition, exceptions, appropriate legal instruments,…);
- the possible technical measures for the different technologies to verify and authenticate the CLI with pros and contras;
- the operational impact for the different stakeholders with cost aspects;
- different aspects of the rollout of the solutions;
- impact on regulatory authorities and possible measures.

ECC Report CEPT cooperation process for withholding payments and/or blocking access to numbers or services in cases of cross-border fraud or misuse
One of the most effective long-term approaches to tackling fraud and misuse is greater cooperation and information sharing between regulators. This can help us to better understand the changing nature of fraud mechanisms and to develop ex-ante and ex-post measures to protect the interests of citizens and consumers. With this aim, it is proposed to define a process for cooperation in the investigation of cross-border cases of fraud and misuse. The process would assist any regulatory intervention in the withholding of payments and/or blocking of access to numbers or services where fraud or misuse has occurred.

As a starting point, we plan to review the BEREC cooperation process, as set out in report BoR (13)37. The BEREC cooperation process was developed to assist regulatory authorities in the effective application of powers provided by Article 28(2) of the Universal Service Directive (USD) to require the withholding of payments and/or blocking of access to numbers or services in cases of fraud or misuse. It is a cooperation and information sharing tool used to complement national processes in combating fraud and misuse. We would consider the strengths and weaknesses of the BEREC cooperation process in developing the CEPT process.

ECC Report Towards 2025: A vision for Numbering and Networks
In 2012, the WG NaN published a Green Paper entitled Long Term Evolution in Numbering, Naming and Adressing 2012-2022.  The document set out a vision for the years 2012-2022 and the conclusions and actions informed the work programme for the group in the intervening period.
In September 2017, the WG NaN Strategy Forum Group met in Athens and considered that a mid-term review of the Green Paper was required. During the review discussion it was agreed that a new strategic guidance document would better serve regulatory and insustry stakeholders.

Rev. ECC Recommendation Amendment to ECCRecommendation (15)03 - Provision of Comparable Information on Retail InternetAccess Service Quality
EU Regulation 2015/2120 (TSM Regulation) concerning inter-alia openInternet access was published on 25 November 2015. The regulation containsrequirements for ISPs to publish various details concerning their servicesincluding minimum, normally available, advertised and maximum speeds for fixedconnections. For mobile connections, advertised and maximum speeds need to bepublished. BEREC has published guidellines on the implementation of thisregulation.

ECC Recommendation (15)03 entitled Provision of Comparable Informationon Retail Internet Access Service Quality was adopted on 23 April 2015. Thisrecommendation predates the EU Regulation and the BEREC Guidelines. As 28 CEPTcountries are EU Member States, PT TRIS considers that some minor amendments arerequired to ECC Recommendation to reflect the new regulations.

ECC Recommendation (15)03 needs to be updated to include references toRegulation 2015/2120 and the BEREC Guidelines on the Implementation by NationalRegulators of European Net Neutrality Rules in the “considering” part.

The additional requirement to include minimum and normally availablespeeds must also be included in the table in Annex 2, Table 2.

ECC Report Defining and calculating free space  in cable ducts

It is planned that this ECC Report would provide a summary of the current situation for free space (capacity)in the cable ducts in CEPT countries. The Report would also provide definitions and options of mathematical calculations for defining and calculating free space in cable ducts for pulling and blowing alternative operators’ cables. The objective of the report would be to provide guidance or a harmonised approach to deal with disputes where infrastructure owners prohibit access by claiming alack of capacity.
