2 BTW 2012 Network Changes – 3 month rolling plan Whilst BTW has continually worked to enhance its network, we are currently undergoing an exceptional level of change driven by four main drivers:- –Stability – to improve the reliability of the network, BTW is targeting certain network elements with hardware and software improvements. –Capacity – the need for additional capacity is driven by an increase in the number of broadband users on the 21C network (through migration from 20C and growth) and also by the ever-increasing bandwidth demands of those users. –Resilience –to improve the resilience of the network, BTW is actively removing single points of failure from the network –New Functionality – to meet the needs of the market BTW needs to enhance its network to deliver the services its customers require. This presentation outlines the key upgrade programmes, their drivers, customer impact and the number of upgrades per programme per week. BTW is keen to deliver all the required improvements as quickly as possible whilst actively managing the risk to customers. For this reason a range of run-rates against each programme has been outlined. The actual run-rates achieved will be determined by this ongoing live analysis of risk. Customer outage times for the PEWs start between 00:01 and 02:00 with the aim of completing customer impacting work by 04:00. This allows 2 hours for roll-back should the PEW be unsuccessful. Business as usual capacity upgrades and upgrades to resilient structures have not been listed here.
3 BTID Network Change – Major Project Summaries Network change StatusProgramme Number Summary MSPE software upgrade. Status – 3 Core upgrades remain to be completed Code upgrade ( SMU patches) is required on the Cisco MSPE to improve platform stability. Two upgrades complete since last report – Edinburgh and Preston. Completion is targeted for 13 th June. 11 Network change StatusProgramme Number Summary HT BEA-VS Introduction Status – Deployment ongoing Introduce High throughput BEA-VS into the 21c platform 3rd migration at Glasgow completed on 17 th May. Next site will be Colindale on 7 th June. Pre-Olympic scope of this project is 5 sites to be completed by 5 th July. 22
4 BTID Network Change – Major Project Summaries 20 Network change StatusProgramme Number Summary 2 nd Vendor MSPE Status – Deployment Ongoing Introduce 2 nd vendor MSPE for WCC and WBMC shared resilience. Upgrade of 17th site for WCC resilience complete on 30 th May. 6 more remain to be completed for WCC Upgrade of 12th device complete for WBMC resilience on 30th May. 1 remain to complete for WBMC shared. 23
5 BTID Network Change – Major Project Summaries Network change StatusProgramme Number Summary 21c BRAS Software Upgrade Status – Deployment Ongoing (37% complete) Upgrade software on 21c BRAS to fix known defects. Defects in the software which will require resolution. BAU deployment is now proceeding, 74 now upgraded. Upgrade plan is agreed, current plan for software is to complete by 6 th July. 26 Network change StatusProgramme Number Summary 2 nd vendor MSAN Software Upgrade Status – Deployment Pending Upgrade software on 2 nd vendor MSAN to fix known defects.

8 21C Upgrades Additional BEA capacity is required and this is being achieved by introducing a bigger switch. To increase platform resilience a 2 nd vendor MSPE is being introduced. 21c BRAS software upgrade to increase stability of the platform Software upgrade which supports new line cards for capacity and stability benefits and also delivers energy efficiency savings.
