  3. Intent • This package is designed for CLEC’s that offer Resale Services, Unbundled Network Element Platform (UNE-P) Services, and/or Wholesale Local Platform Services to the end user customer market place.

  4. Understanding the Daily Usage Files (DUF) Three Types of Daily Usage Files (DUF) • Access Daily Usage Files (ADUF) contains originating and terminating access carrier messages (including ICO, Wireless, Facility Based and IXC messages) associated with Unbundled Network Elements (UNE) switch ports • Optional Daily Usage Files (ODUF) contains end user billing records which can be used by the CLEC to bill its end users for directory assistance charges, vertical features (such as *69) and local usage for usage sensitive calling plans. NOTE: For Resale customer’s, flat rate local calls are omitted from this file. • Enhanced Optional Daily Usage Files (EODUF) provides the flat rated local calls originating from resold Flat Rate Business and Residential lines. NOTE: EODUF is only available for those CLECs who purchase ODUF.

  5. Features and Benefits of ADUF ADUF provides the CLEC call detail on: • their end user’s originating and terminating calls carried by an Interexchange Carrier (IXC) • calls to their end users from other service providers such as: ICO, wireless and facility-based end users. This information will enable the CLEC to charge other providers (i.e., IXCs, Wireless providers, and facility-based CLECs) for messages carried on their network for their end user customer. NOTE: This holds true if an interconnection agreement exists between the CLEC and the other providers.

  6. Features and Benefits of ODUF ODUF provides the CLEC with: • Daily access to end user’s local billing data • Call data that the CLEC may use for marketing analysis • Call data to assist with fraud prevention.

It also provides an opportunity to establish specific end user limits on toll charges.
