I think it is really depending on what kind of provisioning system you
Circuit ID is determined by your provisioning system for CLR/DLR reference.
As long as you can find circuit info quickly, it doesn't matter that much.

I've seen a lot of the the LEC scheme NN-XXXX-NNNNNN where XXXX has
some significance with regard to the speed and type of circuit. The
leading NN seems to be a mystery and the trailing NNNNNN is a serial
I've also seen DS1-NNNNNNN as a straight speed-serial number type of
thing and horrendously long circuit numbers including CLLI codes such
as 101/T3/SNLOCAGTH07/SNLOCA01K15 .
Any suggestions from those who have been down this road as to a schema
that makes sense and is scalable? Are there documented best practices?
