Action Point Review


Partial Private Circuits

Response to Action Point 12/1 (01/12/05) – “BT to investigate the inclusion of eCo Repair in the data quality monitoring on the One Truth Data Base”

Due to continued EOI work, which is given priority over other developments, no date for the alignment of eCo to the PPC OTDB is available.

Response to Action Point 3/5 (02/03/06) – “BT to review the breakdown of charges of the different shift charges on the CPL, and look into the possibility of retrospection if appropriate”

  • Closure date for Retrospection claims 31 Jan 07
  • Those Retrospection claims received from industry are being validated.
  • Payment is expected 1st Qtr 07/08 financial year.

  • Response to Action Point 6/8 (08/06/06) – “CPs believe CDDs are being pushed out and asked for this to be clarified in the Handbook. BT were also asked to look into the possibility of a process which allows quicker delivery when possible”
  • Handbook under review and clarity will be given to when CDDs can be extended.
  • CPs to provide BT with examples where CDDs are being pushed out without their agreement. BT to investigate on receipt of examples.

  • Response to Action Point 6/9 (08/06/06) – “Product Handbook – When will the changes be made”
  • Interim revision made based on Industry’s feedback.
  • Product Line revising Handbook based on feedback received.
  • Revision due for distribution to Industry mid-March for agreement.

  • Response to Action Point 9/1 (08/09/06) – “How many times is ‘Stop the Clock’ initiated because of a 3rd Party customer issues e.g. refusing access? Data to be fed back via the Service Reviews”

  • Response to Action Point 12/1 (07/12/06) – “Wolverhampton CMC have asked CPs to provide circuit IDs of A Ends to begin provision process, but SNEiD is already provided to the CMC and should suffice. BT to check why this is requested”
  • This request is due to a change in the ISH provision process to overcome issues whereby BT occasionally bill ccts from the CP’s POH rather than the BT Exchange. To ensure the right information is gathered up front and both parties agree the address of the SNEID, which should follow through to correct bills being generated.

  • Response to Action Point 12/2 (07/12/06) – “Do BTW provide wholesale variants of Defence Private Services, and if not, can these be developed as a service for CPs to take?”
  • BT Wholesale do not provide Defence Private Service variant. To evaluate whether a BT Wholesale product is possible BT requests CPs submit their requirement as an SoR.

  • Response to Action Point 12/3 (07/12/06) – “CPs requested that BT initiate a process to communicate closure of exchanges to CPs as and when this happens, as this only happens from an LLU perspective”
  • Current:
  • CPs notice of Exchange Closure minimum of 6 months
  • Notification posted on LLU & TSR websites.
  • Future:
  • CPs to provide PPC Product Team with details of persons in organisation to whom the closure notification to be distributed.
  • BT to ensure Closure Notification Team receives CPs list of notification recipients.

  • Response to Action Point 12/4 (07/12/06) – “BT to provide CPs with a process of what happens when exchanges close with regards to moving circuits, downtime, possible cost increase etc. Ideally BT to provide this ahead of the next PPC forum”
  • Once notified the Planned Engineering Works process as detailed in CPs Customer Service Plans is initiated.
  • CPs to liaise with Service Managers regarding circuit downtime.
  • There may be no increase in cost to existing service as a result of the closure, currently being clarified.
  • New circuits will attract the charge from the re-allocated exchange.

Action: 12/5 (07/12/05) - BT to define exactly what the 0207/CLZ geographic zone is, as there are potential NGN implications? BT to also define what the difference is between Metro/CLZ charging structures.A snap-shot of the PPC Exchange Data is provided to clarify CLZ listings – See next Slide

Response to Action Point 12/6 (07/12/06) – “BT to check legal implications of previous application of Ancillary Charges which were charged but not noted in the CPL”

  • BT agree to change the cancellation charges to reflect the following:
  • Cancellation on same day as FOCA will only incur actual charges incurred.
  • Cancellation from day after FOCA onwards will incur published cancellation charges.

  • Analysis is carried out in line with agreed EAB reporting principles i.e. initiated after 2 months’ and reported after 3 months’ when performance is outside of the control limits (pooled z-test)
  • Commentary supporting current results and any resulting analysis is included in the monthly report compiled for the EAB.
  • A quarterly commentary now being added to the added to the published charts on the Industry Web site.
  • The same approach will apply to all new measures.
additional ppc measures
Additional PPC Measures
  • Industry requirements captured and analysed.
  • Availability of measures and feasibility of reporting on them being investigated.
  • Measures are being developed where possible.
  • Data will be collected and produced in publication format (absolute measures and pooled z-test where appropriate).
format of new measures
Format of new measures
  • Absolute Measures: Performance will be measure monthly for BT and external CPs, and will include a twelve month rolling average.
  • Statistical comparison test: performance for BT and External CPs will be measured monthly against a standard 5% two tailed pooled z-test.
  • The pooled z-test will only be applied to volumes greater than 200. If the denominator for either BT or external CPs is less than 200 per month, only absolute measures will be provided.
next steps
Next Steps
  • Validation of Measures
  • Signoff within BT Group
  • Formal Response to Industry (March/April 07)
  • Information made available to the EAO/EAB
  • Measures published on Industry Web site
