WMO RA VI SG on RMDCN, 4-6 June 2008, Vienna One SLA for the RMDCN community
  • Guaranteed Repair Time
    • Baseline is a 2-hour restore time for any Severity 1 fault (Severity 1 implies that the service is unavailable)
      • subject to the availability of a cold standby router at the customer site and diversity of backup connection
  • Service Availability
    • Baseline figure is 99.9% (100% for Mission Critical Sites)
    • Measured per site
  • Round Trip Delays (RTD) – from CE to CE
    • Defined per region; vary from 90 ms to 588 ms
  • Packet Loss Ratio (PLR) – from PE to PE
    • Defined per region; vary from 0.1 to 0.4 %
sla cont
WMO RA VI SG on RMDCN, 4-6 June 2008, Vienna SLA (cont.)
  • Throughput commitments is 80% of IP bandwidth (over a 60 minute window)
  • Availability
    • Committed monthly availability of the backup service is 90% whichever the site
    • Global Service Degradation: when 30% or more of all sites fail to meet the SLA
  • Service Rebates are due when
    • service levels are not met (e.g. below 99.9 %)
    • Guaranteed repair time not met
    • RDT exceeds 110% of the agreed level
    • Service Degradation has been demonstrated (abnormal throughput or backup access unavailable)
cost sharing redistribution
WMO RA VI SG on RMDCN, 4-6 June 2008, Vienna Cost Sharing - Redistribution
  • MPLS Migration
    • OBS offer (2004) showed higher MRC for some Sites
    • No Site should pay more than FRame Relay MRC
    • So the ‘more charges’ (~£14.5K) for these Sites were redistributed over the other Sites
    • Price reductions in 2006 and 2007 have reduced this to ~£9.3K
    • Latest Price Review indicates a significant reduction in the MRC; working out the impact for the reduction of the cost redistribution.
