Access to Passive Telecom Infrastructure : Opportunities and Challenges for Broadband Rollout

  1. 1. Access to Passive Infrastructure : Definitions and Process Mohamed El Bashir Technical Affairs Manager, Communications Regulatory Authority The State of Qatar
  2. 2. Passive Infrastructure : Distribution Network  Internet Users demand high bandwidth ( e.g telecommuting, HD TV, Multimedia sharing, …etc )  Last mile fiber deployment is key to provide high broadband capacity  60-80%, is civil work which involve costs associated with opening (and closing) trenches and laying ducts * Source : OECD Report “PUBLIC RIGHTS OF WAY FOR FIBRE DEPLOYMENT TO THE HOME”
  3. 3. Passive Networks : Core and Access  Passive Optical Network “PON”, uses optical splitters to separate and collect optical signals as they move through the network  Gigabit Passive Optical Network “GPON”, Point to Multipoint Distribution Mechanism Shared downstream capacity ( 2.488 Gbps ), upstream capacity (1.244 Gbps )  Distribution Network depend on civil works ( e.g Ducts, manholes, cabinets, telecommunications rooms ..etc )
  4. 4. Telecom Ducts Network  Telecom Corridors :  constructed on one or both sides of new or some existing Roads  Integral part of Public Roads/Highways  Telecom Ducts and Infrastructure installed in the Corridor  Private Developments Infrastructure
  5. 5. Roles and Responsibilities Telecom Corridor - Design and Standards of Utilities Corridors “MMUP Roads Cross Section Guidene” “Qatar Highway Design manual” - Dimensioning of Telecom Corridor Construction/RO - Construction of Roads/Telcom Corridor - Right of Way process Q-PRO - Concept Designs Approvals ( Q-DES ) Infrastructure - Access and Sharing - Fiber Rollout - Quality of Service Obligations Regulatory - RO and Design Approvals - Standards for Infrastructure Access and Sharing - Coordination with Gov. Agencies - Mega Developments CRA
  6. 6. Right of Way Process Effective RO Process :  A one stop shop and administrative procedures  Reducing barriers for obtaining authorization for access  Harmonizing administrative procedures for RO and ensuring consistency  Ashghal manages a RO automated/work flow online System “Q-PRO”  System utilize GIS mapping of Utilities Infrastructure  System Users : Utility Agencies, Telecom Providers, Contractors  Ensure all procedures are online , SLA for better performance
  7. 7. Passive Infrastructure Regulatory Issues  Efficient, easy, a quick Right of Way ( ROA )  Access/Sharing to Ducts and Associated Civil Infrastructure “Technical Standards for Fixed Infrastructure Rollout”  Access/Sharing of Telecom Infrastructure in Mega Projects and Developments  Lack of Clear Rules and Responsibilities
  8. 8. Passive Infrastructure Access and Sharing  What is OPEN ACCESS ?  The possibility for third parties to use an existing network infrastructure  Ensuring access on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms  OPEN ACCESS Models :  Government/Private Partnership ( Australia, Qatar, Malysia, Singapore ) NBNs Fibre Deployment ( Core to Customer access Networks )  Improve investment incentives for network operators ( Europe )  Hybrid Gov. Funding (Low Interest, Long Term ) and Private Funding ( Africa )  OPEN ACCESS :  Co-Locations (e.g Telecom rooms, exchanges, ..etc )  Civil Infrastructure ( e.g Ducts, leading ducts, ..etc )
  9. 9. Way Forward  Automated, Quick, Efficient ROW Process  Technical Standards for Access and Sharing of Passive Infrastructure  Ability to get access to Ducts Networks ( Private/Government )
