GEN057/12 Network Rearrangements for ADSL
05/07/2012 For Information
This briefing on network rearrangement is for all ADSL Communications Providers.
The purpose of this briefing is to raise awareness of a potential network rearrangement option for ADSL in BDUK funded County led projects
As part of Openreach's Network programme and our ongoing operations we have been trialling some network rearrangements, including the installation of Broadband Regenerators on copper lines providing ADSL. These Regenerators can be placed in or near a cabinet and are powered by new equipment in the Exchange. The ADSL signal is 'cleaned' and 'amplified'. Early indications from the technical trials are positive with some increases in ADSL speeds - although they do require additional network investment.
As part of its portfolio Openreach already offers a range of Network Rearrangements services which can be requested by CPs. Following commencement of the initial technical trials we wish to advise interested CPs that we would like to hear from any CPs who might wish to participate in a CP trial. The Broadband Regenerator may be an option in the future (subject to trial) available to all those who are involved in proposals connected with areas for intervention under BDUK County led rural broadband programme. Any proposals for Broadband Regenerators would need to be evaluated and costed on an individual case by case basis (including feasibility, survey, plan and build). These would then be charged back to the bidding CP on a per project basis.
