Backhaul Installation Infrastructure
Description of the service
The service of access to TIM’s Backhauling installation infrastructure consists of the transfer, with IRU (Indefeasible Right of Use), of a Minitube over a route between “well one” of a Telecom Italia local exchange and the “well one” of the exchange at a superior hierarchical level.
The service allows the requesting Operator to lay its own transmission carriers for creating Backhauling NGANs.
Specifically, the offer includes:
Backhauling installation infrastructures equipped with Minitubes
TIM provides for equipping the existing installation infrastructures with Minitubes and the transfer with IRU of a Minitube complete with installation accessories such as pressure mini-joints and plugs. In cases where the task of equipping is the responsibility of the Operator, TIM provides the Operator with the materials and pays a contribution for installing each Minitube supplied by TIM and installed by the Operator. For installing the Minitubes and cable inside the Minitube assigned to the Operator, the Operator itself is allowed access to the Wells/Chambers through which the assigned infrastructure passes.
Backhauling installation infrastructures created with Minitubes
The service of access to Backhauling installation infrastructures created with Minitubes, provided by TIM also for the development of the NGAN, consists of the transfer, with IRU, of a Minitube directly buried or inside Tubes/Monotubes/Tritubes equipped with Minitubes. For laying the cable inside the Minitube assigned to the Operator, the Operator itself is allowed access to the Wells/Chambers through which the assigned infrastructure passes.
