  14. 14. Connecting Devon andSomersetOur Programme• 6% of all premises in Devon and Somerset receive less than2Mbps*• Current average speeds are 9Mbps in Devon and 8Mbps inSomerset – much less in rural areas*• If left to private sector alone, some 360,000 premises including26,000 businesses with a combined turnover of £9 billion have nocertainty of receiving improved or superfast broadband in the nextthree year period.The Case for Action:*based on Ofcom and CDS Demand Registration Survey data
  15. 15. Connecting Devon andSomersetOur Programme• 965,000 premisesin total*• 360,000 not incommercialdeploymentarea*• 6% of totalpremises below2Mbps**from CDS Call-Off ITT Part 2

  18. 18. Connecting Devon andSomersetOur ProgrammeProgramme Impacts:• Increased productivity – Estimated additional £750m in GVAby 2020• Expect at least 50% take up of standard and superfast servicesin intervention area, with an additional 25% in commercialareas• £2m cost saving to public purse as part of public sectortransformation

  20. 20. Connecting Devon andSomersetSupporting Objectives• A world class broadband infrastructure for Devon andSomerset with the capacity, capability and scale to offerextensive coverage and services• A sustainable and future proof fibre based broadband networkwhich is open to all service and communications providers• The deployment of fibre as far as possible. Increasing thedelivery of high-speed fibre broadband to around 91 per centof premises in Devon and Somerset by the end of 2016.• A minimum of 2Mbps will be available for 100% of premiseswithin the intervention area in Devon and Somerset.
  21. 21. Connecting Devon andSomersetApproach and TechnologyBT Approach• Fibre first, wherever possible to provide fibre broadbandinfrastructure for as many premises as possible• Typical provision order• Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC)• FTTC using network rearrangement• Fibre to the Premise (FTTP)• Following fibre broadband deployment, implement alternativesolutions for the final few based on:• Having achieved the maximum fibre coverage possible,addressing those premises that are still sub 2Mbps• Meeting the Council’s minimum basic 2Mbps objective• Using the best available in-fill technologies
  22. 22. Connecting Devon andSomersetApproach and TechnologyBT Approach
  23. 23. Connecting Devon andSomersetApproach and TechnologyIt Looks Like This…
  24. 24. Connecting Devon andSomersetApproach and TechnologyDeploying the network• Implement the Head-end essential to connect Devon and Somersetto the national fibre infrastructure. In total 36 new Head-ends areplanned to be implemented across both counties.• Implement Fibre Spines which connect local areas to the nearestHead-end. There will be additional backhaul built with new strategicFibre Spines to link exchanges and local spines to every cabinet.• Fibre to the Cabinet connects premises using existing copper lines byinstalling a fibre cabinet on the Fibre Spine and connecting to theexisting cabinet – over 1500 additional structures in new locationsacross the area.• Fibre to the Premise fibre connects a premise directly to the spinenetwork, independent of the copper network.
  25. 25. Connecting Devon andSomersetApproach and TechnologyChallenges• Existence/condition of existing infrastructure, particularly ducts• Costs and timings vary according to the type and quantity ofinfrastructure required• Power requirements for cabinets - existing street cabinets don’trequire power, fibre street cabinets do and in rural areas this is morelikely to be overhead• Power requirements for Head-ends• Broadband performance reflects proximity to existing cabinets• Road closures more likely in rural areas as roads tend to be narrower• Securing wayleaves e.g. for FTTP in multi-dwelling units
  26. 26. 50mtrsExisting PCPLocationPlanning Rules:•PCP & DSLAM <50mtrs apart(exceptionally 100mtrs) – Broadbandperformance issue•Sited to allow cost effective access topower supply•Not in a flood plain area•Positioned outside restricted areas (e.g.areas of outstanding natural beauty)where possible•Access to footpaths, drives, fire exits etc.not blocked by open doors•Avoid private land if possible•Avoid close proximity of road junctions,zebra crossings, road signs, etc.•Avoid household issues such as visibilityfrom main window, stepping stone acrossboundaries, etc.•Plinth not positioned over UG services,tree roots, etc.•100mm clearance behind unit•Required spacing to other street furnitureConnecting Devon andSomersetApproach and TechnologyCabinet Positioning
  27. 27. Connecting Devon andSomersetApproach and TechnologyCoordinated Highways Planning• Co-ordinated engagement for Highways planning• Plan efficient Highways work, e.g. to avoid digging the sameroad up twice• Minimise traffic impact• Balance the requirements of the environment withdelivering the programmes objectives• Assess planning requirements e.g. 1500 proposed newstructure locations to identify and resolve potential issuesearly
