  4. 4. A new infrastructure 4 •Overall aim: to reduce complexity of Janet access infrastructure, including: •Standardise equipment •Overarching management platform •Some estate rationalisation •More use of fibre •Including future Openreach products •Increase self-provisioning •…and break the cycle of re-procuring regional network telco contracts every 4-6 years Regional infrastructure National (UK) backbone Access layer National (UK) backbone Access layer
  5. 5. Steps towards a new Janet Access infrastructure 5 • 2017-Q2/3: Procurement for access provisioning strategy • Competitive dialogue • Range of approaches invited • Proposals mainly based around suppliers’ existing network infrastructures • Expensive - lacking flexibility & agility around provisioning & upgrade • Compared against Jisc build and operate approach (as with Janet6 backbone) • Self-build better meets overall aims • 17 Q4 Procurement for separate Hardware and connectivity solutions • Provider selected 18Q1 • DF procurement as a dynamic procurement system • Lots of providers • Build it • Region by region as existing arrangements finish • Boundaries may move to deal with ‘better’ fibre paths (e.g. E&W Midlands merge) • 4-year programme
  6. 6. Not just hardware 6 • New Management Platform • MCP (Monitor, Control, Plan) • Based on a microservices architecture allowing development of new applications • Orchestration Layer • Deploy new services across both regional and core (and externally) • BSS/OSS Development Programme • Development of the tools to handle the business rules (e.g. ordering an upgrade) • Netsight • First application to be refactored • NS3 launched • NS2 turned off end of 2019
  7. 7. Wet String, Light and Electricity 7
  8. 8. Ethernet Platform 8 • Needs to support 100G backhaul • Needs to support 1G/10G/100G access • Build on a 'family' of hardware to reduce complexity • Options • Traditional Vendor • White/Brite box
  9. 9. Ofcom vrs the World 9 • Ofcom – regulator for telecoms (and communications) • Regular reviews market • BCMR 2016 • “High speed connectivity market is broken” • Fix is a DF product • BT Group say no (CAT agreed) • OSA FC launched by Openreach • 2019 – The return of DF • Between non-competitive exchanges (i.e BT only) • For access use PIA2 (run your own cable in OR ducts)

  11. 11. Building using OSA FC & DF 11 Need a national solution, national DF not (currently) an option everywhere Openreach Telephone Exchanges as POPs Effectively OSA FC is an optical layer, so can focus on Ethernet Establish DF framework, use where more cost effective that OSA FC Move to DF if/when it becomes available
