In compliance with the merger Order between AT&T and DirecTV, AT&T has engaged CAIDA to serve as the Independent Measurement Expert (IME) as described in the Memorandum Opinion and Order (”FCC Order”), Appendix B, V: Internet Interconnection Disclosure Requirements. As described in this appendix, our task is to develop a proposed methodology for measurement and reporting of data, in the context of the following obligation imposed on AT&T.

The structure of this document is as follows. Section 2 specifies the disclosure exemption. Section 3 described the reporting requirements on interconnecting parties, connectivity and traffic management details. Sections 4 and 5 catalog the data that AT&T must collect, and methods to collect it. We distinguish the process of collection from the reporting that results from the measurements. Section 6 specifies the nature of the reporting.

In a separate filing, titled “Report of AT&T Independent Measurement Expert: Background and supporting arguments for our analysis” we provide our rationale for our data sharing requirements and specific measurement methodologies.
