interconnection agreements

  • An interconnection agreement (ICA) is a negotiated contract between companies which sets rates and service conditions. The Michigan Telecommunications Act provides for interconnection agreements between the switched networks of two telecommunications providers. Such agreements allow a service originating on one provider's network to terminate on another provider's network. (Further requirements and guidelines may be found in the Federal Telecommunications Act of 1996, 47 USC, Sections 251 and 252.)
