The four different levels are Priority 1, Priority 2, Priority 3 and Priority 4. • QoS requires fiber and a Cisco ® 3750 at the premises. • Customers who order QoS receive a minimum of 5 Megabits of P1 traffic. QoS is charged for every 5 Megabit increment of P1, including the first increment. P1 traffic comes with a 99.999 percent service level agreement (SLA) goal. • Customers can purchase a maximum of 50 mbps of P1 traffic per bandwidth profile. • Customers who order QoS must specify which of eight templates applies for P2, P3 and P4 traffic. The template sets the limits for P2, P3 and P4 traffic. A customer cannot receive P2, P3 and/or P4 QoS without ordering P1 traffic. • Qwest will not bill to set up the first template for a QoS MOE circuit. However, customers will be billed a NRC for every subsequent template, or changes to existing templates. • The amount of bandwidth allotted to P1 + P2 + P3 + P4 must equal 100 percent of the bandwidth profile: – P1:Supports VoIP applications and other highly critical applications. It is a near real-time QoS supported by a low latency queue. A QoS service level agreement is provided. – P2: Supports interactive video applications. – P3: Supports business data applications. – P4: Default QoS for all other traffic that is not defined as P1, P2 or P3. 1 0 QMOE Features – QoS (cont.) QoS SLA – 99.999 percent goal Measures the percentage of packets conforming to the committed bandwidth profile that are delivered across the core network, without being dropped or lost as a result of a fault within the virtual Ethernet network. The core network is defined as being from the Ethernet switch serving the customer’s A-end to the Ethernet switch serving the customer's B-end location. Thus, over any calendar month, the Qwest MOE network goal is to successfully deliver at least 99.999 percent of a customer’s packets across the core. QoS credit The service level availability credit will be based on a specific calendar month’s performance. The credit will apply for every increment of 5 Megabits of P1 traffic (i.e., the quantity of QoS USOCs on the circuit). The SLA credit will apply to the monthly recurring P1 charges. The credit will equal 1/30th of the MRC for every 5 Megabits of affected P1 traffic. The maximum amount of credit provided in a given month will not exceed the total MRC for the affected service. 1 1 QMOE Features – QoS (cont) 100 Megabit, point-to-point MOE circuit with up to 10 Megabits as P1 10 Mb of P1 18 Mb as P2 (90 Mbps X 20%) Customer QMOE Customer Location A 36 Mb of P3 Network Location Z (90 Mbps X 40%) Cloud 100 Megabit Port 100 Megabit Port and Service and Service 36 Mb of P4 (90 Mbps X 40%) QoS customer example: • Customer buys 100 Mbps and purchases 10 Mbps of P1. They are charged two increments of the QoS rate since each increment is 5 Mbps. • The customer then chooses Template 1 to distribute the remaining 90 Mbps of traffic in P2, P3 and P4 priority levels. Template 1 sets P2 at 20 percent (of the 90 Mbps), P3 at 40 percent (of the 90 Mbps) and P4 at 40 percent (of the 90 Mbps). • If only 5 Megabits of P1 is sent, P2, P3 and P4 can use a combined 95 Megabits. If 15 Megabits is sent as P1, 5 Megabits is discarded and P2, P3 and P4 can use 90 Megabits. 1 2 QMOE Features – Multiple EVCs Multiple EVCs – An EVC connects two or more physical user-to-network interfaces (UNIs), i.e., locations, so the connection appears like a virtual private line. Each port provided by Qwest will come standard with the capability to provide one EVC. Customers may order more than one EVC per port; however, the maximum quantity is limited based upon availability. For each additional EVC, Qwest will bill a multiple EVC MRC. Requires fiber and a 3750 at the customer premises. Two port types are available that support multiple EVCs: • Service Provider Port • Service Multiplexing Port (pictured below) Customer 1 Location B Here is an example of a Point to point port customer using one extra EVC C1 EV M on at location A. By using EVCs, 100 location A can talk to all 100 M on EVC 1 Customer 1 locations while location B can Customer 1 EVC 2 Location A 200 M on Location C only communicate with location Multi-point port 300 M on EVC 2 Point to point port A. Locations A, C and D can all 100 M on communicate to each other. QMOE EV C2 Picture is of a Service Network Cloud Customer 1 Location D Multiplexing Port. Point to point port 1 3 QMOE Features – Multiple EVC Charges • Each Service Multiplexing Port (SMP) or Service Provider Port (SPP) includes one EVC per port with no additional charge. • Each additional EVC to a SMP or SPP port type will carry an incremental MRC. • In the drawing example below, Location A is the SMP. EVC 1 is included with the SMP, EVC 2 will carry an incremental MRC for the multiple EVC. Customer 1 Location B Point to point port C1 EV M on 100 100 M on EVC 1 Customer 1 Customer 1 EVC 2 Location A 200 M on Location C Multi-point port 300 M on EVC 2 Point to point port 100 M on QMOE EV C2 Network Cloud Customer 1 Location D Point to point port 1 4 Service Provider Port - Requirements and Limitations Requirements: • The service provider provides service to other end users. – Example: An Internet service provider (ISP) • The end customer is required to send untagged frames into QC MOE. Qwest adds a VLAN tag. That tag is negotiated and transmitted to the service provider. • VLANs or EVCs are used up on a one-to-one relationship; end users to service provider. • If a customer controls both ends of the circuit and they’re simply asking Qwest to do routing on their behalf based on VLAN/EVC, they do not qualify for a service provider port. • Customers helping to deliver the service to another end user qualifies for a service provider port. Limitations: • The total maximum number of EVCs allowed back to a service provider port is 50 (this figure includes the one EVC that comes standard with the port). • Customers must be provisioned over fiber with a 3750 at the customer premises (this enhancement is not available over copper). 1 5 Service Multiplexing Port - Requirements and Limitations Requirements: • Available to all customers regardless of how they’re using the service. • Bottom line: anyone who doesn’t qualify for a service provider port can order a service multiplexing port. Limitations: • The total maximum number of EVCs allowed back to a service multiplexing port is five (this figure includes the one EVC that comes standard with the port) . • Customers must be provisioned over fiber with a 3750 at the customer premises (this enhancement is not available over copper). 1 6 QMOE Features – Protect Route (1) MOE Protect Route Protect Route provides a separate fiber facility path for the protection system between the serving wire center (SWC) and the company point of termination.* This added protection is provided by ensuring that backup electronics and two physically separate facility paths are used in the provisioning of the service. One primary (or working) service path is established between the SWC and the customer-designated premises. In addition, a protect path is provisioned between the customer-designated premises and the SWC via a company-designated alternate route. In the event the working facility or electronics fail, or the service performance becomes impaired, the facility automatically switches to the service protect path to maintain a near continuous flow of information between locations. Requires a 3750 at the customer premises. MOE An example of MOE with Protect Core Switch Separation Route. A customer can choose to MOE MOE Terminates 25’ have this circuit go to a second Edge Switch Dual Core to different customer premises (premises-to- Entrance Switch ports Cust Prem Loc MOE premises) for total circuit diversity Core and protection. Switch Core Switch Mesh *In those instances where the customer requests Protect Route but does not provide the structure for diverse entrance facilities into the building, there will be a single entrance facility into the building. 1 7 QMOE Features – Protect Route (2) • Protect Route comes with an SLA should continuity between the customer-designated premises and SWC fail. • The SLA goal of 99.99 percent equates to four minutes and 20 seconds of downtime. • Multiple outages of less than four minutes and 20 seconds each will not be added together. • Credit of 1/30 MRC is paid for each occurrence where the outage exceeds four minutes and 20 seconds. Affected elements are the Protect Route MRC and the bandwidth profile MRC. • The maximum amount of credit provided in a given month will not exceed the MRC of affected elements for that month. 1 8 Central Office MOE – MOE ports and bandwidth • Optical 1,000 Mbps port. • Bandwidth profile: 100 Mbps, 600 Mbps and 1,000 Mbps. – SST, SHNS and GeoMax® equipment and the competitive local exchange company’s (CLEC’s) collocation need to be located in the same central office as the MOE switch. – Central offices where the MOE switch is installed can be identified by checking the Network Disclosure List for MOE (#494) – see the column labeled Central Office Bandwidth Profile, if it shows ―Available‖ – Central Office MOE may be ordered from this location. – Collocation is only offered in the FCC 1 – Interstate tariff. – Central office connecting channel is utilized to connect to SST, SHNS and GeoMax Ethernet and the optical interconnection tie pair to connect to a collocation. 1 9 MOE collocation and SST, SHNS and GeoMax Connectivity 2 0 Ethernet with Extended Transport (EwET) in Qwest and Independent Territory •MOE is now available in non-disclosed wire centers utilizing the DS-3 Private Line infrastructure. •An Ethernet with Extended Transport customer interface is required in the MOE switch central office and the customer’s premises. •Ethernet ports and bandwidth profile: – 10/100 Mbps MOE port – Bandwidth profile: 5 Mbps, 10 Mbps, 20 Mbps, 30 Mbps and 40 Mbps •Caveat for provisioning EwET in an independent territory: – Qwest is reliant on the independents to buy, place, and configure the customer premises equipment. Sales and the project manager will have to work closely with the independent to coordinate the installation of this equipment. 2 1 Ethernet with Extended Transport in Qwest Territory Configuration Charges for Service that’s entirely within the Qwest territory – example Customer is a point-to-point circuit (one end in the MOE disclosed footprint one end outside the MOE disclosed footprint) Ethernet Switch • Disclosed end: – MOE bandwidth profile charge (MRC Metro Optical Ethernet only) – MOE port charge (NRC only) Network Customer Customer • Non-Disclosed end: Ethernet Switch – MOE EwET bandwidth profile DS3 Transport charge (MRC only) Ethernet Switch EwET – MOE port charge (NRC only) DS3 Central Customer – MOE EwET customer interface Office CT Interface charge (MRC only) – (the 8815) – DS-3 transport mileage charge from Customer the 6509 to customer serving wire center (MRC only) – DS-3 channel termination (MRC and NRC) 2 2 Ethernet with Extended Transport in Independent Territory Configuration Service where one location is MOE disclosed and the other is served in an independent territory you would bill the Customer following components (assume a point to point circuit): Disclosed end: • MOE bandwidth profile charge (MRC only) • MOE port charge (NRC only) Ethernet Switch Non-Disclosed end: DS3 Chan Term Metro Optical Ethernet Customer • Qwest charges: Network Independent DS3 – EwET bandwidth profile (MRC charge Wire Center only) Customer DS3 Transport Customer – Port charge (NRC only) Ethernet Switch – DS-3 transport mileage – from the MOE switch (6509) to the where we meet the Ethernet Switch independent (MRC and NRC) • Independent charges: – Independent charges their portion of the DS-3 transport mileage – Channel termination for the DS3 (MRC Qwest Territory Independent Territory and NRC) – EwET customer interface – the network interface equipment that’s required to convert the DS-3 to Ethernet, this will mostly like be an ICB charge the independent will have to calculate 2 3 QMOE Benefits • Cost effective –Less expensive than time division multiplexing (TDM) services –Reduces IT costs by eliminating signal conversions –Reduces equipment costs with 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet interfaces • Flexible –Scalable to grow as your bandwidth needs grow –Can increase bandwidth in approximately four business days from service order and acceptance • Fast –Speeds from 5 Mbps to 1 Gbps • Reliable –99.9 percent service availability objective, which can increase to 99.99 percent by adding Protect Route and 99.999 percent by adding QoS –24/7 proactive monitoring • Increased productivity –Enables virtual work groups (VLANs) across a metropolitan area • Metro Ethernet Forum Service Provider of the Year Finalist in 2007 • Officially a Cisco® Powered Network 2 4 QMOE Service & Support - Availability as of September 2007 Available Cities Phoenix, AZ Cedar City, UT * Tucson, AZ Grand Junction, CO * Flagstaff, AZ Logan, UT * • QMOE is available in buildings Denver, CO St. George, UT * served by disclosed central offices Colorado Springs, CO Salina, UT * Sioux Falls, SD * (over 400 central offices have been Boise, ID Des Moines, IA Pierre, SD * disclosed) Minneapolis, MN Bismarck, ND * • Requires Qwest Engineering Omaha, NE Pueblo, CO * Fort Collins, CO * design/funding approval Albuquerque, NM Gallup, NM Greeley, CO * • For the latest updates please see Santa Fe, NM Salem, OR * Network Disclosure 494: Eugene, OR St. Cloud, MN * http://www.qwest.com/disclosures/ Portland, OR netdisclosure494.html Salt Lake City, UT Provo, UT Seattle, WA Spokane, WA Tacoma, WA Cheyenne, WY Casper, WY *Conditionally disclosed pending customer contracts 2 5 Why QMOE?
