FCC Plans NORS Rollout in 2 Phases
Tuesday, August 30, 2016 | Comments

The FCC announced that the rollout schedule for the new version of the Network Outage Reporting System (NORS) platform will be conducted in two phases based on discussions with communications providers.

In the first step, beginning Aug. 31, CenturyLink, Verizon and T-Mobile will be moved to the new production system. When a company is moved to the new production system, the company’s NORS users will be required to file all outage reports using the new platform and will not be permitted to use the current platform. Before a company is moved to the new platform, NORS users from that company should continue to make all required filings under Part 4 in the current version of the NORS system.

In the second step, the remaining companies will be migrated. The second step will be completed as soon as possible, but no later than Sept. 30. The current NORS platform will not be available for filing formal NORS reports after the completion of the second step.

The new NORS production system will be accessible at https://fcc.appiancloud.com/suite/. A new user ID is available at https://www.fcc.gov/eform/submit/Network-Outage-Reporting-System-Registration.

The new NORS test system is available and will remain open for testing purposes until all companies have transferred to the new NORS production environment.

The FCC said in July that the user profile information was moved to the new platform Aug. 1 and previously planned a full cutover Aug. 31.
