Who is the migration portal suitable

21CN migration portal overview
Issue 1 as at 22nd October 2007
What is the migration portal?
BT has developed a web portal which will automate and store centrally the bulk of
communications related to the migration, with users being able to obtain information
depending on the individual’s needs. Previously most of the information related to
the migration is distributed manually via email and the sheer volume of these
communications is not sustainable or practical.
The aim of the migration web portal is to ensure that BT and Communications
Providers can manage the migration of customer lines to 21CN using an e-channel
which will be a central data store for all information related to the migration.
It will enable BT to support and automate the eight main functions and processes of
the team managing the migration:
Migration portal access
Schedule management
Planned engineering works (PEW) management
Migration management
Fallback and stability management
Fault management
Other
Who is the migration portal suitable for?
The migration portal is suitable for communication providers as well as manufacturing
bodies and suppliers involved in the 21CN programme. It is not for end user
consumers and businesses.
Why do I need to apply for access to the migration portal?
By applying for access to the migration portal you are making available BT’s
migration related data to your business. You will therefore be able to plan and make
ready your business operations, communications and resources to ensure that the
migration is as effective as planned.
In addition, if you do no apply for access to the migrations portal you will not receive
the proactive communications that have to date been emailed out to customers.
The distribution of these ‘push’ communications related to the migrations is therefore
entirely dependant on having a user account with the migrations portal.
How can I gain access to the migration portal?

22.10.07
How do I submit a request for a future development?
Please submit any suggestions for improvements to 21cn.mcc.general.enq@bt.com.
When are migration portal development requirements
reviewed?
The capability roadmap (see above) has been discussed and agreed at the
Consult21 implementation and migration working group (IMWG) and the migration
experts working group. Each capability under each targeted release is reviewed
regularly within BT and if there are any changes to the capabilities / scope than these
changes will be highlighted at the relevant migration experts meeting and the
capability roadmap will be updated.
Before the launch of a major release, BT will host a live demonstration of the
migrations portal with CPs. These live demonstrations will provide the opportunity to
witness, first hand, the capabilities of the web portal.
Post the implementation of a phase release of the web portal, BT will conduct a test
exercise / walk through to demonstrate the target release to CPs. CPs will have an
opportunity at these working sessions to flag any changes / suggestions for
improvements which may be beneficial.
CPs can also raise suggestions for improvements or raise any bugs to the MCC
general enquiries email account. (21cn.mcc.general.enq@bt.com)
What to expect after a new release of the migrations portal?
After each release has been implemented, BT will making the following
information available:
A confirmed date for when the forthcoming test exercise will take place.
The updated version of this document (if necessary).
An updated version of the MCC User Guide.
This document is a user manual, detailing the ‘how’ against each of the
capabilities identified within this document
An updated version of the Migrations Portal XML User Guide.
This document provides the XML interface specification for the target release
version of the migrations portal and thus will enable CPs to automate the
interface between BT and CP systems.
How will you communicate when new developments are
added to the portal?
We will update this document and make this available in the Consult21 website and
the portal itself. We will distribute this updated document through the weekly
Consult21 update mailing, with minutes from the communications and

information sharing webcall when any new developments go live.

How do I submit a request for a future development?
Please submit any suggestions for improvements to 21cn.mcc.general.enq@bt.com.
When are migration portal development requirements
reviewed?
The capability roadmap (see above) has been discussed and agreed at the
Consult21 implementation and migration working group (IMWG) and the migration
experts working group. Each capability under each targeted release is reviewed
regularly within BT and if there are any changes to the capabilities / scope than these
changes will be highlighted at the relevant migration experts meeting and the
capability roadmap will be updated.
Before the launch of a major release, BT will host a live demonstration of the
migrations portal with CPs. These live demonstrations will provide the opportunity to
witness, first hand, the capabilities of the web portal.
Post the implementation of a phase release of the web portal, BT will conduct a test
exercise / walk through to demonstrate the target release to CPs. CPs will have an
opportunity at these working sessions to flag any changes / suggestions for
improvements which may be beneficial.
CPs can also raise suggestions for improvements or raise any bugs to the MCC
general enquiries email account. (21cn.mcc.general.enq@bt.com)
What to expect after a new release of the migrations portal?
After each release has been implemented, BT will making the following
information available:
A confirmed date for when the forthcoming test exercise will take place.
The updated version of this document (if necessary).
An updated version of the MCC User Guide.
This document is a user manual, detailing the ‘how’ against each of the
capabilities identified within this document
An updated version of the Migrations Portal XML User Guide.
This document provides the XML interface specification for the target release
version of the migrations portal and thus will enable CPs to automate the
interface between BT and CP systems.
How will you communicate when new developments are
added to the portal?
We will update this document and make this available in the Consult21 website and
the portal itself. We will distribute this updated document through the weekly
Consult21 update mailing, with minutes from the communications and
