5 Agenda for today - afternoon

6 Broadband roadmap - Fibre Graeme Snell Demand Stimulation Director

7 BT’s commercial roll out and Government (State Aid) funded fibre broadband rollout BT’s approach –Intervention roll out will mirror commercial rollout - standard products and services –“Fibre as far as possible” BTW will be deploying WBC alongside the rollout (with very few exceptions) –For BTW customers practically zero effort to serve the additional intervention areas 7 Openreach is delivering fibre to approximately 2/3 rd of the UK as part of its commercial rollout BT is committed to helping meet the government aspiration of 90% fibre broadband coverage by 2017 Funding for the final 1/3 rd 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

8 CP agnostic demand stimulation complements retail marketing and accelerates adoption 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) 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 BT is offering ‘CP agnostic’ marketing support to local bodies Services Include

9 A white label demand stimulation campaign would seem to increase the rate and level of adoption of fibre broadband – in all markets Demand stimulation impact in Milton Keynes vs. based case of other comparable exchanges (M3 exchanges where Virgin presence >80%) Demand stimulation impact in Cornwall vs. base case of other comparable exchanges (M1 exchanges) Cornwall Rest of UK M1

10 Now is the time to focus your marketing campaigns to coincide with rollout 10 Cornwall North Yorkshire Northern Ireland Lancashire Rutland Surrey Wales Campaigns up and running Campaigns expected to start in Q4

11 Superfast Cornwall update £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 Contact: ranulf.scarbrough@bt.com (opp. Truro station, SEP-12)

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 lee.martin@bt.com for details)– our aim is to launch this by the end of the year lee.martin@bt.com –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

22 MSE: Multi-service Edge Why? Growth in bandwidth demand from increased volume and usage requires us to expand the BT Wholesale 21CN Broadband Platform. What are BT doing? Introducing a new Broadband Remote Access server (BRAS) called Multi-service Edge (MSE) Who is affected? All CPs who buy WBC and WBMC When? Initial phase has 5 trial sites starting with Bradwell Abbey (off Milton Keynes) then: 119 MSEs by March 2013 416 MSEs by March 2014 So what does it mean for you? So what does it mean for you? 1.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. 2.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. 3.Implementation of MSEs requires end users to be migrated, with a break in service of between 1 and 30 mins. See briefing: BB450-12 Any questions? please contact mse.wbc.wbmc.tech@bt.commse.wbc.wbmc.tech@bt.com 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

23 Broadband Usage Reports Why? Due to customer demand What are BT doing? 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) Who is affected? 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 When? During October and November we will deploy the software and hardware needed Full launch will follow (date tbc) So what does it mean for you? So what does it mean 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.

24 WBMC - Bandwidth Paramjit Bahra WBMC Product Manager

25 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 Olympics – A success story

28 SFI2: Re-instatement of Base Module ONLY charging Why? 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. What are BT doing? Re-introducing the Base Module ONLY charges for SFI2 Who is affected? All CPs taking IPStream, Datastream, IPSC, WBC and WBMC When? Full charging for SFI2 Base Only modules will begin from 10 th October 2012. The first full SFI2 charges will appear in the November 2012 bill So what does it mean for you? So what does it mean for you? 1.Increased accuracy in billing for SFI2’s 2.The current SFI2 waiver process will cease on the 9 th of October. 3.All Base Module ONLY SFI2’s booked from the 10 th of October will appear on the November 2012 bill.

31 Virtualisation & brief intro to Broadband Architecture debates David Thorne Chief Broadband & Access Strategist

32 Broadband Developments – A View From the Forum David Thorne BT Innovate & Design October 2012

33 © British Telecommunications plc 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

34 © British Telecommunications plc 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 What is the Broadband Forum ?

35 © British Telecommunications plc 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 There is a certification programme but it is certified testing rather than certification The BBF also issues Marketing Documents and White Papers BBF Outputs Founder member On Board of Directors Chair the End to End architecture Working Group Major contributor to the Metallic Transmission, Operations and Network Management, and Fibre Access WGs BT’s Role Functionality Interop Testing Performance

36 © British Telecommunications plc Multi-Service Network Architecture The ADSL Forum was initially focused on mass-market residential Broadband Succession of TRs (25>58>59) culminating in TR-101 TR-59 TR-101

37 © British Telecommunications plc Key Features of TR-101 ATM-Ethernet Interworking (PPPOA-E) Ethernet Aggregation Single BRAS Edge –Auxiliary video BRAS Multicast Support, IGMP Comprehensive VLAN manipulation Hierarchical downstream QoS Ethernet OAM Still mass-market Broadband, but with some video support

38 © British Telecommunications plc The New Architectural Requirements Needed to go beyond TR-101 to provide a single, converged network to support residential, business and voice services Business rationale and high-level requirements in TR-144 Support for new business models and associated network interconnect points, in particular L2 Wholesale (ALA) Support for the associated new network features –IP-based services and QoS; –Bandwidth and QoS on Demand – including session control; –Customer self-configuration; –Simplification of operations & provisioning; –Distinct network and application control planes interfacing with a common data repository; –Alternative (to DSL) access network transport technologies; –Nomadism –Resilient network options. Support for integration into multiple types of Service-Oriented architecture, including ETSI NGN, ITU NGN, IMS, and Web services.

43 Network Virtualisation

44 © British Telecommunications plc Carriers’ Challenges Energy Consumed By Networks UK CO2 Reduction Target Service Development Time Customers’ Expectations The electrical energy consumed by networks is increasing whilst carriers are targeted with reducing CO2 emissions. Service development time is increasing due to increasing: Complexity. Distribution. Legacy. Whilst customers expect faster innovation.

45 © British Telecommunications plc BRAS Firewall DPI CDN Tester/QoE monitor WAN Acceleration Message Router Radio Network Controller Carrier Grade NAT Session Border Controller Classical Network Appliance Approach Network Virtualisation Approach PE Router SGSN/GGSN Independent Software Vendors Standard High Volume Ethernet Switches Standard High Volume x86 Servers Standard High Volume Storage Orchestrated, automatic & remote install.

46 © British Telecommunications plc Slide 46 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 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 ?

47 © British Telecommunications plc The NLRG Concept Replace the current L3 RG with a simpler, L2 bridge Some elements have to remain in the home, WAP, LAN ports, PSU, box Extend the LAN out into the WAN Do the L3 and complex processing in the network

48 © British Telecommunications plc NLRG pros and cons Pros Reduced NT cost Reduced NT power Reduced NT memory Reduced pressure on CPU MIPS Ease IPv6 transition Reduced firmware upgrade time and frequency More rapid service introduction Lengthened NT replacement cycle Cons/Issues 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 Jury still out on the balance of these argument,s so currently a PD(295), not a WT

49 Network Performance Characterisation

50 © British Telecommunications plc 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

51 © 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.

52 © 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.

53 © British Telecommunications plc WT-304 Scope Service Types Covered: Internet, Wholesale access, Business, Value- add 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.

Self-install version ~ 300Mbps –Architecture and nodal requirements being developed in the BBF (WT-301)

59 © British Telecommunications plc Questions Do the NLRG’s benefits outweigh the disadvantages ? Is FMC in the areas of policy, QoS and authentication good for a wireline operator ? Which network performance parameters are appropriate and affordable ?

63 63 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.

64 64 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. B2B Gateway Migration

65 65 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.

66 66 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)

67 67 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.

75 Sub Loop Unbundling migrations to BT Wholesale Broadband Bev Bytheway-Jackson Product Manager

76 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.

ClosedJuly 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.
