FRIACOThe Direction

  • OFTEL issued the FRIACO Direction on 26 May 2000

  • Provision of wholesale unmetered call origination from the customer to the DLE

  • FRIACO was available from 1 June 2000


Friaco subsequent developments

FRIACOSubsequent Developments

  • BT agreed that IECs ordered for SurfTime could be re-configured for FRIACO

  • CCITT7 signaling arrangements to use STP configuration to reduce number of signaling links

  • BT provided all SurfTime IECs on time, but OLOs have only connected to a very few

  • MCIW and VIATEL have contracted for FRIACO


Friaco hybrid

FRIACO ‘Hybrid’

  • Delays to IECs and continued pressure for DMSU interconnect lead to FRIACO ‘Hybrid’

  • OFTEL facilitate BT / MCIW discussions

  • Hybrid allows traffic to be carried from DLE to the DMSU using metered rates

  • Hybrid flat rate + ppm charge

  • DLE - DMSU ports not capacity constrained, so special metered supplement if notional capacity exceeded


Friaco progress

FRIACOProgress

  • In practice, no FRIACO-based retail products have been launched (but note AOL)

  • Partly due to Hybrid still being partly metered

  • Partly due to uncertainty over longer term

  • Delay to Technical Experts Report


Technical experts report

Technical Experts Report

  • Existing Internet traffic doubling every 10 months

  • BT meshed trunk network is unsuitable for handling unmetered growth - has reached scalability limit

  • Not practical for all OLOs to connect at all DLEs

  • IP interconnect is best long term, but will take time

  • Some short term capacity can be made available in trunk network by traffic re-arrangement to DLEs

  • Medium term, BT should build a new tandem overlay network for ISP traffic

Friaco ii proposals1

FRIACO IIProposals

  • Short Term (1 Feb. 2001 - 31 Jan. 2002)Limited trunk capacity and traffic re-arrangement

  • Medium Term (1 Feb. 2002 - onwards)Unlimited tandem capacity (e.g. by ISP tandem overlay)

  • Long Term:IP interconnection using BT modems and routers

    Note: FRIACO at the DLE remains available

Friaco ii next steps

FRIACO IINext Steps

  • Comments requested on FRIACO II proposals

  • Implementation of Stage 1 from 1 February 2001

  • Co-operation on network reconfiguration essential

  • Periodically reviewing traffic ceiling

  • Industry group regarding IP interconnect (Stage 3)

  • Industry group to address stranded assets issues


Friaco ii consultation comments

FRIACO IIConsultation & Comments

  • Consultation Document published on 13 November 2000 and Draft Direction published on 25 November 2000

  • Comments by 8 December 2000

  • Comments on comments by 22 December 2000

  • Final Direction to be published during January 2001
