Bitstream NGA Bitstream NGA

  • Is it possible to subscribe at the same time for Bitstream NGA offer and VULA offer ?
  • Yes, both contracts have to be signed and the Operator need to be interconnected to TIM network according the specific features provided by the two services(TIM exchange node with OLT installed for VULA service; Interconnection Point Nodes in the case of the NGA Bitstream service).

  • Under which conditions is it possible to deliver the Bitstream NGA and the Bitstream Ethernet services together on the same delivery kit ?
  • Delivery of the 2 services together on the same delivery kit is possible only provided that:
    The OAO wishing to deliver both of them on the same kit has subscribed both of them. It is not needed to adhere to both the offers at the same time: if an OAO has subscribed only one of them and is currently getting the associated service, it will always have the option to adhere to the other one later on, and consequently start the delivery of both the service on the same delivery kit, provided of course that also the 2 following conditions are verified.
    The L2 device used for the delivery kit is suitable for the delivery of the Bitstream NGA service (at present all the devices are good except for the Cisco 3750).
    The delivery kit is connected to a node of the TIM network that is suitable for the delivery of the Bitstream NGA service.
    Note that the delivery of the 2 services together on the same delivery kit only allows to share the end device and the associated local/geographical connections between the 2 services, but does not allow to share the transport bandwidth and VLANs, that instead remains independent for both of them. So, transport bandwidths and VLANs for the 2 services must be requested and sized independently for each one.
  • Is it possible to deliver the Bitstream ATM and the Bitstream NGA services on the same delivery kit ?
  • It is not possible.

  • Is it possible to deliver the Bitstream NGA and/or the Bitstream Ethernet service on a VULA delivery kit ?
  • It is not possible. The VULA delivery kit can only be used to deliver the VULA service.

  • Where can I find the nodes of the TIM network where I can connect my Bitstream delivery kit ?
  • They are listed in the file “Punti di Interconnessione per Bitstream NGA”, which is mainly the same as the file “Punti di Interconnessione previsti per Bitstream su piattaforma Ethernet” (that is the listing all the nodes of TIM network that are available for the delivery of the Bitstream Ethernet service), and it is important to point out that all the nodes listed therein are always suitable for the delivery of the Bitstream Ethernet service.
    So, the available nodes for the delivery of the Bitstream NGA service are a subset of the currently available nodes for the delivery of the Bitstream Ethernet service: the former nodes are therefore the only available nodes for the delivery of both the services together.

  • What is a “naked” FTTCab/FTTE line ?
  • A “naked” FTTCab/FTTE line is a FTTCab/FTTE line without a PSTN/WLR service. So, it is a line where only the VDSL2/EVDLS data connectivity is provided. FTTCab/FTTE lines can be requested both in “naked” mode and in “shared” mode, the latter being the presence of a PSTN/WLR service together with data connectivity.

  • What is a “shared” FTTCab/FTTE line ?
  • A ”shared” FTTCab/FTTE line is a line with both a POTS/WLR service (provided by TIM through its PSTN network) and a VDSL2/EVDSL data connectivity service provided through the Bitstream NGA or VULA service.

  • Is it possible to activate VDSL2 data connectivity over an ISDN line ?
  • It is not possible. In other words, it is not possible to have a “shared” FTTCab/FTTE line with an ISDN service. In this case, the delivery of the data connectivity service requires the activation of a dedicated “naked” FTTCab/FTTE line.

  • Is it possible to activate a FTTH line with a PSTN/WLR service (i.e. a “shared” FTTH line) ?
  • It is not possible. FTTH lines can be requested only in “naked” mode.
