About Provisioning For Local Services
The provisioning of local services is integrated into Verizon's local ordering processes. These processes utilize the Local Service Request (LSR) for the order format. Once the LSR passes the appropriate edits, is accepted by our ordering centers, and the due date is agreed upon, the circuit(s) on the order begins going through the provisioning process.
Verizon's enhanced Partner Solutions Provisioning Tracking System (eWPTS) is the system Verizon uses to provision requests once they have entered the provisioning process. There are presently 4 modules covering the various local services available: Hot Cuts, Shared Services, New Lines, and UNE/Resale. Each module has a view the CLEC can use to monitor the provisioning of their circuits.
A Hot Cut is a near-simultaneous disconnection of a Verizon working
loop from a port on one carrier's switch, and the reconnection of that
loop to a port on a different carrier's switch, without any significant
out-of-service period. Learn more about the provisioning process.
Out of Hours port out request
An Out of Hours port out request is a request that a local number port be completed prior to 8A and after 5P local time Monday-Friday, or between 8A ET and 4P ET Saturdays (Sunday and Holiday ports are not considered). Pre approval is required for all Out of Hours port requests Learn more about the provisioning process.
