Location and Product Qualification

Frontier's Virtual Front Office (VFO) provides CLECs with the ability to qualify locations for Local services including Resale, UNE and Broadband. Provided below is a link to the LSR Pre-Order Tutorial which provides direction on completing and submitting the various pre-order qualification inquiries. Frontier also provides additional VFO assistance with online training available from the VFO Training page of this site.

Available Pre-Order Transactions:

  • Address Validation Inquiry – TXTYP A:  Allows CLEC to validate an end user address using a working telephone number or the physical address.

  • Direct Telephone Number Selection – TXTYP = B:  Reserve telephone numbers for noncomplex new service – Allows up to 5 telephone numbers per request to be reserved for 30 days.

  • Customer Service Records Inquiry – TXTYP = E: Provides access to Frontier data for the purpose of determining existing services for a specified end user.  CLECs can query by ATN or ECCKT.  The user can expect to receive both primary and non-primary billing numbers for the same customer at the same address, service line, features as well as CFA info associated with the ECCKT. CSR records containing 10K lines of data or more will be returned via the Customer Wholesale Portal (CWP).

  • xDSL Loop Qualification – TXTYP = H /K:  Used to determine loop lengths, qualification indicator, products available and if necessary, the reason the loop is not qualified for DSL.  Can submit by end user address or WTN.  If the WTN is not owned by Frontier, then CLEC must use address instead.  If the loop length is less than 18,000 feet, then the loop is qualified.  If greater it is not qualified.

  • Loop Make-Up – TXTYP = J: Provides physical make-up of facilities at the selected location including bridge tap location and length, composition of the loop (copper or fiber), presence of load coils, quantity and spacing of load coils, and pair gain presence.

  • Directory Listing Inquiry – TXTYP = T: Enables the CLEC to access existing listing data for the purpose of viewing existing listings for the specified end user.  Depending on the specificity of the info, the listing database will return either the requested listing or a list from which the requester must select a more specific listing and enter a new request.
