18/05/2012 For Information
This briefing on Value Add DSL data is for NGA Communications Providers.The purpose of this briefing is to confirm Openreach plans to make available 'Value Add DSL Data' from 18 June 2012 and to advise associated price.
We are pleased to confirm that on 18 June 2012, we will be improving a capability that allows CPs to have greater access to performance and stability data on their entire end user base for GEA-FTTC; information that can be used to further promote end user services. For example, you can use the data to identify whether an end user's line performs to the necessary stability standard to support IP Linear TV. Furthermore, it can aid decisions around fault locations, saving you and your end user's time.
The Value Add DSL Data is made up of 16 data parameters and from launch will be made available on a daily basis and available to CPs on an opt-in / opt-out basis.
The file will be a bulk file accessed via the SDEDs system, a file server that allows documents to be downloaded as many times as necessary and is access controlled by Openreach.
A charge will be applicable for this 'value add' service and will be based on the number of end users, including an initial offer running until the 1 October 2012:
|Number of End Users||Full Price Monthly Charge||Initial Pricing Monthly Charge|
|Less than 100,000||£2,000||£600|
|100,000 - 499,999||£7,500||£2,250|
|500,000 - 999,999||£10,000||£3,000|
|More than 1,000,000||£15,000||£4,500|
To start receiving this information, please contact the customer establishment team with a 'start' request for you to start subscribing to the GEA FTTC Line Qualification Data Bulk file.
If you have further questions about the Value Add DSL Data capability or Openreach's developments to support TV over the NGA network please, please speak with your Sales and Relationship Manager or contact Brett Smithers
