overview and benefits
Overview and Benefits
  • This project enables the Ethernet Virtual Private Line (EVPL) Term Based rate plan to be priced out of Product Pricer.
  • EVPL is the first Legacy CTL product to be introduced into Product Pricer
    • Now you, the customer, can price out your own quotes and determine on a preliminary basis if special construction is needed
    • EVPL loops will now be “qualified” via a firm, budgetary or ICB quote, based on fiber availability
    • Bulk quoting capability is included
    • Firm Special Construction Charges can be ordered. Budgetary Special Construction Charges will require submittal of an ICB.
overview
Overview
  • What’s not included:
        • EVPL for ELA-Loop qualification is scheduled for availability in 2014
        • Ethernet over Copper
        • API
        • The Bandwidth-Based 7 year Flat Rate Structure Plan
        • The Volume Based Rate Plan (Low and High Volume)
          • Pricing for these plans is available via the applicable CenturyLink Local Operating Companies Interstate Tariffs
qualification
Qualification
  • Product Pricer for EVPL is similar to Product Pricer for QC Metro Ethernet in that the information provided also includes the loop qualification.
    • This is done internally as Product Pricer makes a web call to another internal CenturyLink system to qualify the service address. It will determine:
      • Is this an EVPL served wire center?
      • Is the address identified as a fiber-fed building?
      • Is the distance to fiber identified?
    • If there are issues with any of the above qualifications, contact your sales team who will submit the request for further review.
firm pricing scenario
Firm Pricing Scenario
  • Firm Pricing
    • A quote will receive a Firm Pricing message if one or both of the following conditions exist :
      • The location is fiber fed
      • This is an EVC only quote, the configuration uses an existing UNI, NNI, ENNI
    • If a Firm Pricing message is received, this quote does not need to be developed by the ILEC Sales Engineer. (SE)
    • You will have a firm price to use and can order the service in the standard manner, knowing there will be no special construction.
    • Message Received: “Pricing quoted here is firm for services with a term of month to month, 12 month, 24 month, 36 month and 60 month, but is contingent upon engineering approval.”
      • Once ASR is submitted, there may be circumstances that require a change to the design and could impact the pricing.
budgetary pricing scenario
Budgetary Pricing Scenario
  • Budgetary Pricing
    • A quote for EVPL service will be considered Budgetary if both of the following conditions are present:
      • If there are one or more UNI, NNI or ENNI locations configured for the quote
      • A location configured on the quote is not a fiber-fed building, as identified by GeoWS.
    • You will receive budgetary pricing including a special construction estimate.
    • If you wish to continue, please contact your sales representative.
    • The Budgetary message is:
      • “Location is served by a wire center that is equipped with EVPL equipment, but requires manual engineering to produce a firm quote.  Budgetary price produced as an estimate for planning purposes only.”
icb scenario 1
ICB Scenario #1
  • ICB
    • When a validation check is performed, the system will verify if both the A and Z locations are served by the same Metropolitan Ethernet Network cloud. If they are in different Metro Clouds an ICB message will be received.
    • No pricing is received
    • The ICB message for this scenario is:
      • “Locations are served by diverse networks and require ICB design and pricing. Please contact your account team for assistance with final pricing.”
    • Please Note: IF locations are in different EVPL clouds, service cannot be offered. (With two exceptions in Florida)
    • This message will be updated in a future release.
icb scenario 2
ICB Scenario #2
  • ICB
    • If the distance to fiber cannot be found by the system and if the address is otherwise considered valid, then you will receive a price for the service but the charge for the construction is ICB.
    • An ICB request will need to be issued to the ILEC Sales Engineer via Salesforce for pricing of the construction charge.
      • Standard ICB quote and acceptance processes will be followed

  • Message States: Unable to price until the following validation errors are fixed: Locations are served by diverse networks and require ICB design and pricing. Please contact your account team for assistance with final pricing

special construction
Special Construction
  • BudgetarySpecial Construction can now be quoted for EVPL via Product Pricer.
  • The same methodology that is being used manually today has been incorporated into Product Pricer.
  • On the PDF generated from Product Pricer, the Special Construction Charge will be labeled as “Construction” under the Element Column.
  • The rate is shown in the NRC column.
special construction1
Special Construction
  • Product Pricer provides information if a building is Fiber-Fed or not.
    • If after inputting Location A, it is found that the building is NOT Fiber –Fed, a pop up message states:
      • Construction is required to extend fiber access to this location. The quoted construction charge for this location is budgetary and reflects the construction charge that is estimated under ideal conditions. Factors that would result in a higher construction charge include but are not limited to:
        • The fiber route crosses a railroad, interstate highway, or body of water
        • The location is a cell tower
      • If any of the above conditions are known to exist, your actual construction charge will likely be higher.
    • If a building is notFiber Fed there may be a special construction charge.Special construction is not always charged even if needed. Thresholds apply.
process
Process
  • How does this impact you?
    • You can still submit an order without a Product Pricer quote.

Standard order process would apply

  • If you receive a Firm Quote with Special Construction quoted, the following process applies:
    • Once you receive the price quote from Product Pricer you will need to contact your sales team with a soft copy of the price quote and/or the quote number that was generated by Product Pricer.
    • Sales will load the quote into Salesforce.com and that will kick off notification to the Sales Engineer that they need to review the quote. 
    • If Special Construction is required, then the Sales Engineer will follow the existing ICB process. Your Sales Manager will keep you informed of the results.
