ORDER

Adopted: August 25, 2014

Released: August 25, 2014

By the Acting Chief, Enforcement Bureau:

1.

The Enforcement Bureau (Bureau) of the Federal Communications Commission

(Commission) has resolved its investigation into whether Time Warner Cable, Inc. (TWC) complied with

the Commission’s network outage reporting requirements. Under these rules, communications providers

must report certain disruptions to their networks. The Commission has determined that prompt access to

accurate information regarding the operation and security of crucial segments of the national

telecommunications infrastructure would enable it to prevent disruptions in service that could threaten

homeland security, public health and safety, as well as our nation's economic well-being, and would

facilitate alternative means of communicating. Depending upon the nature of the network outage,

communications providers must file certain reports with the Commission within defined timeframes. By

requiring communications providers to report certain disruptions to their networks, these rules provide the

Commission with the means to quickly analyze communications vulnerabilities and share aggregate

information with industry to help prevent future outages and preserve network integrity. Here, TWC

failed to file a substantial number of reports with respect to a series of reportable wireline and Voice over

Internet Protocol network outages. TWC admits that its failure to timely file the required network outage

reports violated the Commission’s rules. To resolve the investigation, TWC will pay a civil penalty of

$1.1 million and implement a three-year compliance plan to ensure future compliance with the

Commission’s network outage reporting rules.

2.

The Bureau and TWC have negotiated the Consent Decree that resolves this matter. A

copy of the Consent Decree is attached hereto and incorporated herein by reference.

3.

After reviewing the terms of the Consent Decree and evaluating the facts before us, we

find that the public interest would be served by adopting the Consent Decree and terminating the

investigation.

4.

In the absence of material new evidence relating to this matter, we conclude that our

investigation raises no substantial or material questions of fact as to whether TWC possesses the basic

qualifications, including those related to character, to hold or obtain any Commission license or

authorization.

5.

We therefore adopt the attached Consent Decree entered into between the Bureau and

TWC. The Consent Decree resolves and terminates the Bureau’s investigation into TWC’s compliance

with the Commission’s regulations in 47 C.F.R. Part 4 regarding the reporting of network outages.

attached to this Order IS ADOPTED.

accurate information regarding the operation and security of crucial segments of the national

telecommunications infrastructure would enable it to prevent disruptions in service that could potentially

threaten homeland security, public health and safety, as well as our nation's economic well-being, and

would facilitate alternative means of communicating. Depending upon the nature of the network outage,

BACKGROUND

2.

Pursuant to Section 4.9(f) of the Rules, wireline communications providers4 must report

to the Commission an outage of at least 30 minutes duration that: (1) potentially affects at least 900,000

user minutes5 of either telephony or paging; (2) affects at least 1,350 DS3 minutes;6 (3) potentially affects

any special offices and facilities;7 or (4) potentially affects a 911 special facility.8 Wireline

communications providers must file with the Commission an electronic Notification within 120 minutes

of discovering a reportable outage, an Initial Communications Outage Report (Initial Report) within 72

hours of discovery, and a Final Communications Outage Report (Final Report) within 30 days of

discovery.9 Pursuant to Section 4.9(g) of the Rules, Interconnected Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)

providers must report to the Commission an outage of at least 30 minutes duration that potentially affects:

(1) at least 900,000 user minutes of interconnected VoIP service and results in a complete loss of service;

4 TWC would be considered a wireline communications provider where it offers terrestrial

communications through coaxial cable between its central office and end user locations. See id. § 4.3(g).

5 “User minutes” are defined as “[a]ssigned telephone number minutes . . . for telephony, including non-

mobile interconnected VoIP telephony, and for those paging networks in which each individual user is

assigned a telephone number” or “the mathematical result of multiplying the duration of an outage,

expressed in minutes, by the number of end users potentially affected by the outage, for all other forms of

communications.” Id. § 4.7(e).

6 “DS3 minutes” are defined as “the mathematical result of multiplying the duration of an outage,

expressed in minutes, by the number of previously operating DS3 circuits that were affected by the

outage.” Id. § 4.7(d).

7 “Special offices and facilities” include major military installations, key government facilities, nuclear

power plants, and certain airports. Id. § 4.5(b).

8 An outage that potentially affects a 911 special facility occurs whenever: (1) there is a loss of

communications to Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) potentially affecting at least 900,000 user-

minutes; (2) there is a loss of 911 call processing capabilities in one or more E-911 tandems/selective

routers for at least 30 minutes duration; (3) one or more end-office or mobile switching center switches or

host/remote clusters is isolated from 911 service for at least 30 minutes and potentially affects at least

900,000 user-minutes; or (4) there is a loss of ANI/ALI (associated name and location information) and/or

a failure of location determination equipment for at least 30 minutes and potentially affecting at least

900,000 user-minutes. See id. §4.5(e).

9 See id. § 4.9(f).

(2) any special offices and facilities; or (3) a 911 special facility.10

VoIP providers must file with the

Commission an electronic Notification: (1) within 24 hours of discovering a reportable outage meeting

the user minute threshold or potentially affecting any special offices and facilities,11 or (2) within 240

minutes of discovering a reportable outage potentially affecting a 911 special facility.12 In either event,

VoIP providers must submit a Final Report to the Commission within 30 days of discovering the

reportable outage.13 Pursuant to Section 4.11 of the Rules, the Notification, Initial Report, and Final

Report must be submitted electronically to the Commission and contain specific information regarding

the outage, service effects, and communications provider.14

3.

TWC is a wireline communications and interconnected VoIP service provider. In

September 2013, the Commission’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau (PSHSB) notified TWC

that it had failed to file a required Final Report in connection with a reportable VoIP network outage for

which it had timely filed a required Notification. Further investigation by PSHSB revealed that TWC had

failed to file a substantial number of Initial Reports and/or Final Reports with respect to a series of

reportable wireline and VoIP network outages for which TWC had timely filed the required Notifications.

After learning from PSHSB of the overdue Initial Reports and Final Reports, TWC submitted the reports

required by PSHSB by November 8, 2013. PSHSB subsequently referred this matter to the Bureau for

investigation. In response to an inquiry from the Bureau’s Spectrum Enforcement Division,15 TWC

admitted that it failed to timely file with the Commission a substantial number of required Initial Reports

and/or Final Reports.16
