Communications Data Group (CDG) announced the completion of an enhancement associated with the billing of VOIP usage per the recent FCC USF/ICC Reform ruling and implemented the changes for production billing on March 22, 2012.
The changes include the ability to apply the mandated PVU (Percent of VOIP Usage) percentage at the Carrier/State level with the ability to apply unique percentages for both originating and terminating traffic. CDG has also built in the ability to apply different PVUs at the end office switch level, if this becomes a requirement for clients in the future. System changes also support the recent FCC clarification that states that VOIP usage is to be billed under the intrastate jurisdiction, but it is to be rated at the lowest tariff rate, whether that is the interstate or intrastate rate structure. All changes will meet the industry preferred C/BOS standard, release V51.1, for paper invoices, BDT (Bill Data Tape), and CSR (Customer Service Records).
