Artificial Inflation of Traffic (AIT) Process Documents

Find out about the AIT Process and download related documents.

What is AIT?

 

 

AIT is covered under Annex E of the Standard Interconnect Agreement.

 

It is a process whereby originating operators can formally notify terminating operators of traffic which they suspect has been artificially inflated simply to boost the revenue of the Service Provider, Re-seller or Terminating Network without offering any real benefit to the call originator.

 

The process allows for the retention of funds against a Terminating Network where the originator has reasonable grounds for suspecting AIT has occurred.

 

For details of the process and the contractual timescales that apply, see the Annex E Document below. You can also find all the documents detailed in the process under Annex E.
