Just like the title says, I know it is basically a dry pair from telco from point a to point b.

I have a guy that just started working with me and he is a fanatic about knowing what every acronym stands for, well he stumped me with this one and I hope some of the more experienced people here can shed some light on this for me?

Going to move this to "Telephone Service".
I assume you talking circuit ID. OS type services were a basic voice circuit the last two letters usually defind LS,GS,RD or what every type it was. Since I no longer have the books to look these up can't tell you what NA was and I've never really seen it, OSNC was the most common. Maybe one of our CO guys will know. Also the OS was the Long Haul ID not the local or LEC ID. If your not talking about a circuit ID then I'm not sure what you're talking about.

I took a look at Newton's Telecom Dictionary. No listing for OSNA. The only listing is OSN which is what Rhonda mentioned.

I don't think it's an acronym I'm pretty sure it's a circuit ID like DHEC xxxxxx OSNC xxxxxx poster stated he though it was a dry pair.

I agree with Bill. Verizon identifies dry pair or OPX circuits with OSNA-XXXXXX.

OK OSNA was the (old) circuit identifier for an off premise extention. So your right dry pair. It's a circuit identifier not an acronym.
