Broadband roadmap - Fibre
Graeme Snell
Demand Stimulation Director
BT’s commercial roll out and Government (State Aid) funded fibre
broadband rollout
Openreach is delivering fibre to approximately 2/3rd of
the UK as part of its commercial rollout
•
– Intervention roll out will
mirror commercial rollout
- standard products and
services
– “Fibre as far as possible”
BT is committed to helping meet the government
aspiration of 90% fibre broadband coverage by 2017
Funding for the final 1/3rd is organised and
administered by Broadband Development UK (BDUK)
on behalf of Department of Culture, Media and Sports
Practically every local authority has applied for BDUK
funding
Following open tender, two providers have signed a
framework contract with BDUK
7
BT’s approach
•
BTW will be deploying WBC
alongside the rollout (with
very few exceptions)
– For BTW customers
practically zero effort to
serve the additional
intervention areas
CP agnostic demand stimulation complements retail marketing and
accelerates adoption
BT is offering ‘CP agnostic’
marketing support to local bodies
•
•
•
Driving market growth and awareness
Helping to position roll out as a regional
activity, driven and ‘owned’ by local
government
Funded primarily by LBs, but potentially
with BT contribution (at wholesale level,
not BT Retail)
Services Include
•
•
•
•
•
Regional campaigns, with a dedicated
marketing team in region
Local authority branded portal with white
label content, availability checkers etc.
CRM system and eDM/direct mail
services
Events, workshops
Regionally branded cabs, flyers, vans etc.8
A white label demand stimulation campaign would seem to
increase the rate and level of adoption of fibre broadband – in all
markets

exchanges

•
•
•
£132m partnership – EU, Cornwall Council & BT - started OCT-2010 –
targeting all 250k premises
Aims: aiming for 80-90% FTTX coverage + strong focus on take-up
Coverage now: FTTX: 109k premises passed NOW inc. 7.5k FTTP
(Falmouth, Truro, Liskeard, St Austell)
Take-up: 14,000 live customers through 27 ISPs
Next phase: 180-200k FTTX premises by APR-13 including 48k premises
FTTP
Business & strategic growth areas prioritised for FTTP
New trials & tests being pioneered in Cornwall eg. Fibre on Demand
Superfast Cornwall keen & resourced to work with ISPs to drive take-up,
particularly around FTTP
(opp. Truro station, SEP-12)

BDUK – Get involved now!
•
Who in your organisation needs to know about the rollout plans for BDUK
areas?
– Suggest Marketing & Sales, Customer Service, Network build teams
•
Tell us what type of information you would like us to provide about the plans for
exchange enablement in BDUK areas
– E.g. timings, coverage, PR/Marketing activity
•
Openreach in conjunction with BT wholesale will then create a
communications channel to provide updates on BDUK plans
– Likely to use the existing BT wholesale fibre surgeries (contact
[email protected] for details)– our aim is to launch this by the end of
the year
– Do you require regular updates at this ISP forum as well?
•
Finally, this is not just about a mass market consumer sales opportunity.
– There are likely to be bespoke SME sales engagement opportunities for
CPs in BDUK areas as SME business support / capability training is a key
part of the demand stimulation programme in many of the BDUK bids
Fibre Broadband FTTC and FTTP
Neil Tye
Head Fibre Broadband
How is Fibre doing?
Nearly 12 million ‘premises’ passed 7 months ahead of
schedule with over 850,000 End Users
1
Part of £2.5Bn BT funding
to 2/3rds end 2014
Approx 31,000 cabinets RFS at 1,210+ exchanges and
600+ planned 163 extra newly announced exchanges
FTTC up to 80Mb service available, FTTP in EMD
Services up to 330Mb & trials on fibre on-demand
70 CPs selling the service, over 40 of whom we see as
‘commercially launched’
33% of BTW external SP FTTC lines are 80/20. Availability checker will
always show the FASTEST available speed
22% ADSLcustomers in footprint. Average ‘Business’ conversion
of 12% of enabled footprint. ‘Best in class’ conversion of 42%
Negligible impact on backhaul costs; the heavy users
on Fibre were the heavy users on copper.
Integral part of BTW’s WBC and WBMC portfolio, systems
and network

MSE: Multi-service Edge Any questions? please contact [email protected]
If this affects you we will be contacting you to make sure the impacts
and any action required are clear and to answer your concerns
What are BT doing?
Why?
When?
Who is affected?
• Introducing a new Broadband Remote Access server (BRAS) called Multi-service
Edge (MSE)
• Growth in bandwidth demand from increased volume and usage requires us to
expand the BT Wholesale 21CN Broadband Platform.
• Initial phase has 5 trial sites starting with Bradwell Abbey (off Milton Keynes) then:
119 MSEs by March 2013
416 MSEs by March 2014
• All CPs who buy WBC and WBMC
1.
So what does it
mean for you?
2.
3.
We will notify you of some IP address changes. If you use your own IP addressing
as part of WBC Aggregation Point build, there are additional requirements.
Once MSE goes live, as part of the authentication process and within accounting
records there will be additional NAS IP addresses in RADIUS IETF Attribute 4.
Implementation of MSEs requires end users to be migrated, with a break in service
of between 1 and 30 mins.
Broadband Usage Reports
What are BT doing?

Who is affected?
So what does it
mean for you?
See briefing: BB425-12
Any questions? please contact Bev Bytheway-Jackson at:
[email protected] or 01244 657938
• We are enhancing Broadband usage reports to show 21C data as well as the
existing 20C data and changing the delivery method to the Data Exchange
Distribution Server (DEDS)
• Due to customer demand
• During October and November we will deploy the software and hardware needed
• Full launch will follow (date tbc)
• Any CP that uses Broadband Usage Reports may wish to act
• If you don’t consume Broadband Usage Reports data there is no impact for you
• If you do consume Broadband Usage Reports then the data will soon be available
via DEDs (20C and 21C data) in addition to Concorde Network Health (CNH) which
will have 20C data.

•
London 2012 was the most connected Games ever and BTW own gold
medal performance helped
- BTW CPs reach new heights too
High usage on our broadband network without any issues is testament to the
- planning, investment and interaction with our customers to deliver a
great end to end experience.
Internet traffic reached an all-time high on the broadband network
Bandwidth demand from some BTW CPs grew by up to 40 per cent in August
– with Rebecca Adlington’s 400 metres swimming event creating the
demand peak.
One node reached over capacity and some orders had to be re-planned
BW forecast is of paramount importance to plan and size the network
BW required by date needs to be planned with current T&Cs (5 WD)
BTW initiated “Network re-use of Hostlink” during the Olympics which helped
2 CPs
The Network re-use option for Host Links will be used under exceptional
circumstances in the future

mean for you?
See briefing:BB448-12
Any questions? please contact Ahmed Mohamed
[email protected] 020 7777 6112
• Re-introducing the Base Module ONLY charges for SFI2
• BT have now agreed a strategic fix with their supplier (Openreach) to correct a billing
issue, that previously meant that that the SFI2 charge had sometimes been billed
when not appropriate and also not billed when it should.
• Full charging for SFI2 Base Only modules will begin from 10th October 2012.
• The first full SFI2 charges will appear in the November 2012 bill
• All CPs taking IPStream, Datastream, IPSC, WBC and WBMC
1.
2.
3.
Increased accuracy in billing for SFI2’s
The current SFI2 waiver process will cease on the 9th of October.
All Base Module ONLY SFI2’s booked from the 10th of October will appear on the
November 2012 bill.

Broadband Developments – A View From the
Forum
David Thorne
BT Innovate & Design
October 2012
Outline
• What is the Broadband Forum ?
• Overview of Current Architecture Activities
– Multiservice Network Architecture Evolution
– Network Virtualisation and the Network Located RG
– Network Performance Characterization
• Topics of potential future interest
– FTTdp
– (Fixed-Mobile) Convergence
• Questions for the audience
© British
Telecommunications
plc
What is the Broadband Forum ?
• Not the Broadband World Forum
• A non-profit, international industry consortium which develops
Broadband Architectures and nodal functional requirements
• 200 leading industry players including network service
providers, network and customer premises equipment, chipset
companies, test equipment and laboratories, regulatory bodies,
educational institutions and consultants
The History
• 1994 - Established as the ADSL Forum
• 1999 - Rebranded as the DSL Forum (SDSL, VDSL)
• 2008 - Rebranded as the Broadband Forum (PON)
• 2009 - Merged with the IP/MPLS Forum to broaden its focus
over the entire end to end networking infrastructure
© British
Telecommunications
plc
BBF Outputs
• The main outputs of the BBF are Technical Reports (TRs)
– more than 300 of these exist
– most well-known are TR-69 (RG management) and TR-101
(Migration to Ethernet Based Broadband Aggregation)
• Mainly functional requirements for network nodes
(BRASs, ANs, RGs)
– not compliance specs
Functionality
Interop
Testing
Performance
• There is a certification programme but it is
certified testing rather than certification
• The BBF also issues Marketing Documents and White Papers

Service development time is
increasing due to increasing:
• Complexity.
• Distribution.
• Legacy.

Network Virtualisation
Approach
NV Summary
•
•
Standard high volume servers have sufficient packet processing
performance to cost effectively virtualise network appliances in an open
eco-system.
NV benefits are similar to IT virtualisation benefits:
– Consolidated equipment.
– Rapid deployment of new virtual appliances.
– Operational flexibility to move virtual appliances.
– Scales down & up.
•
TCO advantages are scenario specific but can be significant
– Including a significant reduction in energy consumption
•
Slide
NV started off as virtualisation of large, centralised network elements
(e.g. BRASs)
Might it also be applicable to smaller, more distributed elements – in
particular the Residential Gateway ?

Is the actual cost saving significant ?
Is the actual power saving significant ?
Is the Silicon saving significant if
already a single chip ?
Need L3 and an IP address for
management anyway
What is the cost of building the NT to
last longer ?
What are the security issues of
extending the LAN into the WAN ?
Can no longer keep up with
developments in WLAN technology
Must keep working locally when the
WAN connection goes
May impact customer retention
Network Performance Characterisation
Network Performance Characterisation
• Broadband still frequently sold on the basis of the ‘up
to’ headline downstream rate
• There is growing interest from end-users and
regulators in a richer set of performance parameters
that:
– are more closely related to customer experience
– are done is a standard way to enable the performance of
different networks to be meaningfully compared
• The BBF is addressing this in WT-304
© British
Telecommunications
plc
WT-304 Motivation
• Service Providers currently operate a data collection
infrastructure for their own purposes
• Regulatory bodies are starting to specify tests in
order to obtain results for policy and consumer
information purposes
• Customers have an interest in quantifying the actual
performance of their subscribed-to service
• Third-party organizations (commercial and academic)
have a similar interest in this topic
• However there is currently no agreed, widely used
test methodology or terminology; this makes
meaningful comparison difficult.
© British
Telecommunications
plc
WT-304 Specific Goals
• Define a standard set of Broadband Access
performance attributes that Service Providers may
use to characterize their service offerings. These
may be used in their own right and/or to determine
the impact on customer experience.
• Define a common framework for accurate
measurement of these attributes, including
measurement points, measurement methods, and
inter-operability between different organizations.
• Devise the best way to communicate network
performance and characteristics to the various stake
holders.

•
Service Types Covered: Internet, Wholesale access, Business, Valueadd
Specification of the test architecture
A set of definitions to enable standard performance testing and
reporting which includes:
– the Network Segment(s) being tested
– tests and methodologies appropriate for each segment
Recommended testing intervals for performance characterization and
summarization purposes.
Support of tests that span multiple operator networks.
A standard method of quantifying and comparing access services.
A common language for the effective communication of service
attributes between service providers and the customer.
Templates for application providers on the network performance
requirements.

Fibre to the Distribution Point (FTTdp)
Go Faster Copper
•
•
To go beyond 100 Mbps means shortening the copper
Closest flexibility point to the customer is the Distribution Point (DP)
– typical length is 50m
•
•
•
•
Rates of several hundred Mbps possible
Two of the major costs of FTTC are the cabinet and the powering
FTTdp would have to be cost effective to power and deploy
Critically dependent on ‘back-powering’ from the customer premises
– there is a conflict between doing this and providing baseband, exchange--powered
voice
•
•
FTTdp needs a new transmission standard, which is being developed by
the ITU-T (G.fast)
The economics and deployment models are being carefully studied

B2B Gateway Migration
Impact Statement  We’re migrating to new software (Oracle) and hardware platform
(VDCs based HP Blades) and upgrading certificate security at the same time. This means
CPs will need to point to a new URL in production at a particular point in time. We would
like customers to engage with us before the migration on connectivity and functionality
testing.
What products are impacted by the change?  All BT Wholesale Broadband (20& 21c)
for provision and repair journeys.
Benefits to CP’s 
• High Availability , Improved security through use of 2048 bit encrypted certificates
instead of 1024 bit, reduced outage timelines.
What Should You Do? 
• Migrate from 1024 to 2048 bit secure certificates.
• Perform connectivity test with new onramp environment
• Perform functional test on new onramp environment
• Establish connectivity with the new VDC sites.
• Migrate to the new URL/Portal at agreed time slot.
63
B2B Gateway Migration
Will you (the CP) be required to undertake any code development?  based on
experience of previous migrations the majority of CPs using standard CoTs packages will
not need to make code changes – to be confirmed through On Ramp testing.
Will this change impact any CP owned screens or interfaces?  Minor – URL and
Certificate Changes as described..
Will 30 or 90 day notifications be issued?  90day notifications before turning off the
old URL.
Timescales 
• “On Ramp” is available in Sept 12
• Customer Migration is dependent on individual CP engagement Q3 12/13 to Q2 13/14.
• Final withdrawal of existing gateway end 13/14.
64
BBCR (Actuate Upgrade)
Impact Statement  We’re changing from one version of the base software tool to the
latest supported version e.g. Actuate v9 to Actuate v11. There will be minor changes to the
look and feel of Actuate reports (we think it’s an improvement)
What products are impacted by the change?  BT Wholesale Broadband (20& 21c) –
BBCR Reports.
Benefits to CP’s 
• Improved usability of screens, some small functionality improvements.
What Should You Do? 
• Users will be switched over to the new reports in Mid Oct 2012.
• Please check your reports and feedback any comments or issues.
65
BBCR (Re-Write Using Oracle Tool-sets)
Impact Statement  We will be re-writing the existing BBCR reports using Oracle
software. 90% of the reports impacted are used through XML interface.
What products are impacted by the change?  BT Wholesale Broadband (20& 21c) –
BBCR Reports.
Benefits to CP’s 
• Cleaner, more modern graphics.
Timescales 
• BTW expect to deliver XMLs and one set of reporting in AF/AG timescales (Jan &
March)… Q4 this year
What Should You Do? 
• Look out for 90 day notifications associated with XML.
• Schedule XML development resource.
Will 30 or 90 day notifications be issued?  90 day notifications for XML changes …
this will be notified in Q3 (Won’t force switch to new XMLs this year – optional in Q4)
66
Eco Broadband Migration
Impact Statement  Our 20c Broadband ordering and fault gateway is reaching the end
of its service life. We plan to support the provision and repair interface through our 21c
systems (Eco+). This will require a development and migration activity by our customers.
What products are impacted by the change?  IPStream and Datastream.
Benefits to CP’s 
• Continued support for 20c Broadband.
•
A single interface for 20c and 21c products.
What Should You Do? 
• All Broadband customers need to develop their XML interfaces.
• Existing 21c customers – to add in 20c products.
• Existing 20c-only customers – to develop an Eco+ interface.
• Train your agents in Eco+ portal.
• Migrate in one of three tranches Jan 13-June 2013.
Will 30 or 90 day notifications be issued?  90 day notifications for XML and monthly
engagement meetings are proposed.

Sub Loop Unbundling migrations to BT
Wholesale Broadband
Bev Bytheway-Jackson
Product Manager
Where are we?
A migration path for SLU SMPF to BT Wholesale Broadband products (with MAC) was
developed and launched by Openreach in April 2012.
We notified you in July via briefing BB239-12, that we are experiencing systems issues
with the SLU MAC where an error code is being returned by our systems preventing the
migration order from completing.
This does not affect any other migration journey; only SLU to BT Wholesale Broadband,
where there is a change of CP.
You are able to identify where an SLU SMPF installation is present , where we will return
the code ‘S’ where SLU SMPF is present.
If you win customers from SLU, you must advise the end user to cease their SLU service
first, before submitting a Broadband provide order into us. During this time, you should not
advise prospective end users to obtain a MAC from their SLU CP.
We have a solution due to be delivered in January 2013 to resolve the technical problems
and we will notify you via the Broadband briefings nearer the time.

Can the ISP Forum

as well?
Closed
July 12
The Wholesale Ethernet product team use the main product event
(the BTW Showcase) to detail their propositions and have regular
meetings with their customers, where product issues can be
discussed. Service issues are dealt with via the normal service
escalation channels. The team are also looking at holding update
webcalls aligned with the roadmap releases – to explain what’s
new and what’s coming up. It is therefore more appropriate to
keep the ISP Forum Broadband focussed.
