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
