Report
Welcome to the Developers Working Group
(Your are in safe hands)
 The shape and tinting of the building were chosen to minimise the effects of an
indirect nuclear blast.
 Despite being a major London landmark, until the mid-1990s the tower did not
officially exist and was not marked on Ordnance Survey maps.
 Due to expansion and contraction caused by the cold of winter and the heat of
summer, the tower's height varies by as much as 23 centimetres (9 inches).
 Around 50,000 square feet of glass encase the tower's concrete shaft.
 The tower is designed to sway by as much as 38 centimetres (15 inches) in a 175
kilometres-per-hour (110 miles-per-hour) wind.
 There are 95 tonnes of high tensile steel in the base, 695 tonnes of mild steel in the
structure and 13,000 tons of concrete.

What is the Connected Home
A combination of:
• A selection of interoperable devices
• A range of services which take advantage of these
• The interconnecting home network
Information Subject To Change
Confidential
Emerging consumer needs
•
Consumers are increasingly demanding access to content on multiple devices:
− 40% of people time-shift content daily (Source: Nielsen)
− Only 43% of total video consumption takes place on a TV (Source: Ericsson)
− Sky, Virgin, LoveFilm, Netflix etc. all offering content across multiple platforms
•
Growing need to push large amounts of content to, around and out of the home:
− e.g. Multi-room high-definition services
− e.g. Back-up/sharing of content from devices including those equipped with HD
cameras
•
Simplicity and reliability:
− Key reason for continued of physical media (e.g. DVDs) is perceived lack of reliability
of digital alternatives (Source: Ericsson)
− Existing home networking solutions account for significant proportion of support calls
Information Subject To Change
Confidential
Current limitations of the Connected Home
•
Lack of interoperability:
− Multiple ‘stove-piped’ solutions e.g. media services, home
energy management systems
− Incompatibility issues
•
Complexity to set up and use:
− Devices and services do not work together “off-the-shelf”
•
Home networking issues:
− Delivering required bandwidth for advanced services such as
multi-room HD
− Complexity of setting up home networks
− Less than 100% reliability
Evolution of Connected Home devices


The next few years will see explosive growth in connected, inhome devices:
– DisplaySearch forecasts that over 100 million Internetconnected TV sets will ship worldwide in 2013
– Set-top-boxes, games consoles and Blu-Ray players will
be similarly enabled, if not already
Accessing content services across multiple devices will
become a baseline feature of content services

Device compatibility – Digital Living
Network Alliance (DLNA)




DLNA is the only ‘standard’ that provides a common interoperability scheme between all
devices that create, serve and render (play or display) content within the Connected
Home
96% of Internet-enabled TVs from the top 5 manufacturers support content playback via
DLNA 68% of leading Blu-Ray players are DLNA certified
Proprietary alternatives exist but are restricted to a limited range of devices e.g. Apple
Airplay
The growth in DLNA will increase the usage of in inter-connected home devices

‘We
cannot figure out why things take such
an obtuse and frustrating amount of time.
We have often completed the construction
of multiple floored and expansive multimillion pound buildings before BT have
done anything. It’s ridiculous’.

What we’re doing about It
 Carried out root cause analysis of
site office L2C jobs
 Briefed every planner in the UK on
the action and importance of service
to new developments
 Liv Garfield personal involvement
 Agreed a three month action plan:
– Implementing a more focused
approach to meeting survey task
lead times, as trialled in the South
West
– Implementing a new planning
prioritisation tool developed in the
North West
– Publishing briefs to CP’s and the
construction industry – to help
them help us

The South West Initiative
Pilot /Trial deployment
Trial in the south west planning area took place between April and May
Trial initiatives successfully reduced survey lead times 12+ days to 6.9 days
We found that
− survey lead times >12 days
− too many internal hand-offs
− queue priority determined by internal dates (ARBD’s)
− failure to follow data format rules for line-plant available dates
(LADs) and excess construction charges (ECCs)
− Building extra time into LADs to prevent failure.
ARBD’s – Activity Required By Date
LAD – Lineplant Available Date
ECC’s – Excess Construction Costs

Confidential
Actions Deployed Nationally
• Target is 4 days from order to survey completion
• Making a survey appointment < 1 day of receipt
• Producing the survey pack on the day of survey
appointment
• Target ECCs given to CP < 1 day after survey.
• Increase priority of construction site surveys (act
on receipt instead of waiting for activity required
by date)
• Calculate LADs to make sure network build is
completed without delay.
• Mandatory training to planners:
o DO not add time unnecessarily to the LAD
‘just in case’ .
o Always use the right format for the CSS note
(systems will make an appointment based on
the LAD you enter).
o Prompt installation is vital for our customers.

Correct assessment of ‘LADs’







The Line plant available date (LAD) tells our CPs how long it will take to build new
Openreach network for their order.
Once the CP has accepted any excess construction charges (ECCs), the order will be
re-appointed to the LAD.
The new appointment will made by systems and must therefore be in the right format.
LADs must be entered in the correct format: LAD=xx working days (with or without
spaces?).
If network is available immediately use the format LAD=0 working days.
The LAD should reflect the actual time required to provide network. It is not
acceptable to use default rounded times to avoid failure.
Always calculate the date as accurately as possible, taking into account the network
build work required and the availability of resource (internal or contract) to do it.

Learning points on avoiding incorrect use of data
formats




Openreach uses automated systems to communicate excess construction charges
(ECCs) and line plant available dates (LADs).
Systems rely on correctly formatted data to pass information from the surveyors and
planners to Communications Providers (CPs) and their customers.
It is essential that ECCs and LADs are correctly formatted, or the process will be
delayed, resulting in lost business & cost for Openreach and delays and manual
intervention for CPs.
Excess construction charges must be entered in the format COSTS = £xx.xx
WITHOUT VAT.

What is it?
– An SDP is a cabinet in which we fix our external NTE
Who installs it?
– It is owned and installed by the developer
Example site distribution
What’s it for?
cabinet
– It avoids the need to wait for site offices to be located on site (a frequent source of delay)
Where should it be located?
– Fixed rather than movable
– Positioned so Openreach will always be able to get safe access during the life of the service
What’s the spec?
– Robust enough to protect our NTE from physical damage
– Suitable for our NTE to be fixed inside easily – eg. screwed onto a wooden back plate
– Big enough to house all the external NTEs we will need for the site
– Not shared with other CPs or other utilities (especially electricity suppliers)
How is it ordered?
– It’s not ordered, it’s agreed between the Openreach surveyor and the developer, at their first
site meeting, as part of the site solution
When is it removed?
– After the service is ceased and we have removed our NTE and cable
Where can I get advice and help?

What does the Openreach New Sites solution look like?
The ultimate e2e solution for New Sites is based on the Openreach Fibre To The
Premise (FTTP) technology and products. These products are already being
deployed in Brownfield as part of our NGA roll-out but in many respects the New Sites
solution is different.
3 main factors shape the product – the needs of our customers (Developers and CPs),
the nature of New Sites development planning/build and very different New Sites
service take-up volumes
Openreach Story:
 Modular architecture
 “Pre-installed” ONT
 Remote provision of voice and data services
 Positive customer experience and RFT
Developer Story:
CP Story:
 Increased sales
 Fibre enabled from start (no post sale
civils or build activity)
 Homes Ready for the future (PAS
2016…)
 FTTP
 Easy to consume (similar/better than
Brownfield)
 Quality voice-over-fibre
 Efficient RFS and addressing solution
Information Subject To Change
Confidential
Progress
 FVA Project planned to launch March 2012
 Olympic Athletes Village (2818 FTTP premises)
 Creation of an NGA Programme horizontal with major projects
addressing New sites
 Worked British Standards Institute to develop PAS2016 and an
updated Builders Guide including guidance on structured wiring for
fibre served premises
 Investment in our FTTP network infrastructure design, systems and
processes to support deployment to tactical and strategic new sites
 FTTP Brownfield footprint RFS today 20k premises with 85k in build
