The FCC has chartered the Network Reliability and Interoperability
Council (NRIC) to address a number of issues about the reliability of
communications systems, primarily traditional telcos. One of the
issues being addressed is a determination of what information about
outage data is being collected by "other industry segments" -- i.e.,
communications industries other than telcos. This includes, e.g.,
cable, satellite, paging, and ISPs. Wearing my hat as Executive
Director of IOPS, I am a member of the subcommittee that is doing
this work. In order to get as broad a response as possible from
ISPs, I am sending this message to the NANOG mailing list, soliciting
your participation in a questionnaire being conducted by the
If you might be interested in participating, please send an email
note to John Healy, who is copied on this message. He will then send
you softcopy of the questionnaire. All data collected from companies
will be protected and treated as proprietary. The information will
be aggregated on an industry-wide basis and not by company.
The questionnaire is straightforward and will take very little time.
I encourage you to support this data-collection effort.
