USAGE MEASUREMENT. 61.1. Each Party shall calculate terminating interconnection minutes of use based on standard AMA recordings made within each Party’s network, these recordings being necessary for each Party to generate bills to the other Party. In the event either Party cannot measure minutes terminating on its network where technically feasible, the other Party shall provide the measuring mechanism or the Parties shall otherwise agree on an alternate arrangement.
USAGE MEASUREMENT. Usage measurement for calls shall begin ----------------- when answer supervision or equivalent SS7 message is received from the terminating office and shall end at the time of call disconnect by the calling or called subscriber, including time released call disconnect.
USAGE MEASUREMENT. The Parties agree to measure, record and round terminating minutes of use (MOUs) for billing and reciprocal compensation between the Parties in the same manner. Terminating usage for individual calls shall be measured on Conversation Time, from Answer Supervision to Disconnect Supervision, and recorded to the nearest second. Terminating usage measured and recorded for individual calls shall be accumulated for the billing period with the total accumulated usage rounded up to the next full MOU to arrive at total billable MOUs for each interconnection. Rounding shall not occur for each individual call.
