Transactions: Address Validation Inquiry /Conversational TN Selection and Reservation
Verizon East
Switch Region: East West

The Address Validation/ Conversational TN Selection and Reservation inquiry transactions allow the CLEC to validate the end user's address prior to sending a Local Service Request (LSR). In addition, it allows the CLEC the opportunity to select and reserve telephone numbers (TNs) for the end user. Telephone number reservations may not exceed 180 calendar days.

When to Use
The Address Validation/TN Selection and Reservation inquiry is used prior to submitting an LSR for service at a new location, prior to making changes to existing service and prior to moving service to a new location.

How to Complete
The required fields for submission of this inquiry are "State/Province" and "Transaction Activity". An optional field that aids in the TN Selection and Reservation process is the "Expand Options Indicator" field. Select the transaction format, Direct or Conversational mode, by using the Expand Options Indicator and choosing the transaction activity:
  • New Inquiry (validate by address, no TN selected)
  • Validate by WTN or Select (validate and select TN, Direct mode only)

If the Expand Options Indicator is not selected, it will default to "Direct" mode. In either mode, the CLEC may validate the end user's service address by using the service address or Working Telephone Number (WTN) located at the service address.

Address Validation/TN Selection and Reservation:
Ref. Description
  • Validate service address
  • Reserve telephone number
  • Using end user's full address

  • Responses from Verizon
    The response when using "Direct" mode will provide an Address Validation and allow up to five telephone numbers to be reserved simultaneously in a single transaction.

    The response when using "Conversational" mode will provide an Address Validation, an inter-linked TN selection and TN Reservation inquiries. More than five telephone numbers can be requested.

    Both inquiry options provide switch information and will identify the number of additional Connecting Facilities available at the service address. Cut-through information for residential service may be requested by populating the Cut-through Validation Field (9a), and the Type of Service Field (9) on the Address Validation Inquiry Transaction.

    The CLEC may also receive a Partial Address Match response for "Direct" mode or Multi-line Text response for "Conversational" mode; either response will provide additional or clarifying information regarding the address that was submitted. The CLEC would use this information to modify their request and resubmit.

    The response may also indicate if Fiber is present at the address. The FCI field (Fiber Capability Indicator) will identify if Fiber is available. Valid entries are Y (Yes), or N (No) to indicate the presence of fiber.
