There are multiple factors coming together to create the fibre
imperative…


The

economic

sustaining

Ireland’s

international

competitiveness

as

a

place

to

invest,

to

work,

to

.


The

customer

today,

in

the

not

future

they

will

need

these

speeds

to

benefit

from

and

enjoy

‘next

services


The

market

imperative



our

once

separate

markets

are

converging

and

competing

in

a

converged

world

demands

bandwidth
.

Deep

Fibre

deployment

is

an

imperative

for

all

technologies



The

technology

imperative



Our

market

is

a

‘technology’

The Analysys Mason study for TIF estimated the costs of
deploying fibre at over

1.5bn with a payback of c 20 years

An open access FTTH Trial gives us an opportunity,
individually and collectively, to get to grips with some of
these issues …not in the abstract but in a real environment

10


Develop industry understanding of the technical issues associated with FTTH in
particular our understanding of the actual costs


Can we do better than the desktop
modelling and research suggests?


Develop our understanding of customer interest
-

What services are perceived to
have value by customers
-

is there a willingness to pay a premium for the next
-
generation services?


Develop and test a trial NGA product portfolio , both passive and active, and value
added services (e.g.Multi
-
cast).


Develop and test sales and customer management processes to support both
wholesale (and retail) services


Develop fulfilment and assurance processes and systems to support NGA services


Develop our understanding of the role of OTT providers


can we work in partnership?

11

Our intention today is to explain what we are doing, why we are doing it,
how we plan to do it and…hopefully …enlist your support and participation


Background and purpose


Scope of Trial


Technical Overview


Engagement Process


Indicative Timelines

So this is what we plan to do…


Invest c

20m in deploying fibre to c 10,000 homes in two locations


This investment will support an FTTH trial offered on an ‘open
-
access’ basis to all interested
operators


Locations will cover two exchange areas


one in Dublin and one in a provincial town


Locations are being finalised this week to ensure that they are large enough to support the
trial and provide a representative demographic


This trial will have a commercial as well as a technical focus.


i.e As far as possible
services offered, terms and conditions etc will match those that would apply in a real
commercial launch situation


At the wholesale level we will offer, subject to demand and feedback from our engagement
process, passive, active, and multicast services


FTTH will support voice, broadband and TV. (Each participating operator will need to
determine its own product package)


End
-
Customer participation will be voluntary on an ‘opt
-
in’ basis.
-

i.e. This is not a forced
‘swap
-
out’ it is a test of customer interest in buying FTTH services.


Copper plant and services will be maintained in parallel with FTTH for customers who prefer
to stay on copper.

All of which leads us to fibre…


FTTC and FTTH are the key high broadband technology choices for us


Our initial findings indicate that FTTC is not the preferred option for us as the
long term future option in metropolitan/Urban areas for three reasons:


Not future proof for Medium & High usage residential customers or for High
usage business customers


Less long
-
term opex savings potential, and


An inefficient upgrade path to FTTH


FTTC is a more cost effective solution for hard to serve areas than FTTH and
can be built to be upgradeable to FTTH over time


GPON based FTTH will support up to 100 Mb, provides a transformational
platform with mid
-
term savings on HC (through copper maintenance) and
provides potential in long
-
term for full migration decreasing requirement for
ongoing copper investment

how we plan to do it and…hopefully …enlist your support and participation


Background and purpose


Scope of Trial


Technical overview


Engagement Process


Indicative Timelines

eircom is committed to ‘open
-
access’ and ‘open
-
engagement’ because it makes sense…


It makes commercial sense


Driving the level of customer take
-
up and utilisation required to generate
revenues requires all operators to ‘put their hands to the pump’


We need your ideas and your energy to propel the market forward.


It makes investment sense


The scale of the investment required is so large that it will only work if its is
perceived as and used as a ‘common
-
platform’


All stake
-
holders have an interest in this platform being built


“co
-
optition ‘ is
the way forward


It makes ‘regulatory’ sense


Intrusive regulation will only be required if ‘bottle
-
necks’ control is seen to limit
market competition.

25

To support the right level of engagement and transparency
we have engaged a respected third party agency to
facilitate the engagement process…


Analysys Mason
-

Expert consultants in the Telecommunications Sector with wide
experience of NGA work for operators, regulators and Governments.


Conducted the NGA study for TIF and have a good knowledge of the Irish market


Will participate in and facilitate the engagement process with a brief to:


Capture and champion Wholesale customer requirements


Establish terms of reference for and moderate a regular industry forum of participating operators


Provide direct feedback to eircom CEO and executive team on any significant issues of concern
regarding conduct of the engagement process.

26

We propose four strands of engagement



Bi
-
lateral Engagement:


To c
apture inputs from, and the requirements of operators with regard to both

-
The conduct of the engagement process and

-
Product and operational requirements for the trial services


Industry Forum:


Will meet monthly to

-
Review requirements gathered during the bi
-
lateral engagement

-
Consider eircom’s proposals for meeting the requirements identified

-
Seek consensus agreement to proposals

-
Receive updates on trial network build
-
out


ComReg and the DCENR will be invited to attend the forum


Workshops


Will be arranged as necessary to develop and agree the inter
-
operator
processes necessary for the products being proposed in the pilot.


Publication


All product and service offers on the trial will be documented and published for
availability at an agreed interval prior to service launch
