Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link (WEIL) Product Description
1.Introduction
The purpose of this document is to provide a product description of the eircom Wholesale Ethernet
Interconnect Link (WEIL), handover enhancements.
This document is subject to review and will be re-issued to reflect changes as new developments are
introduced which shall be communicated in accordance with agreed practices. Any specific technology
mentioned in this document is current as at date of issue and is for guidance purposes only. eircom
reserves the right to adapt the technology used to deliver Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link.
This document is without prejudice to any future position that may be adopted by eircom in respect of
Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link. It should be read in conjunction with the relevant associated
eircom Wholesale documents (where appropriate, reference offer, process manual and SLA).
1.1 Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link Overview
Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link (WEIL) is an interconnect product that enables an Operator to
aggregate their end-user NGA / Wholesale Symmetrical Ethernet Access circuits at a nominated Point Of
Handover (POH). This product will also facilitate the handover of other NGN Wholesale Ethernet
products from an Operator’s end user site to an Operator’s handover point. The WEIL can be provided
to the nominated POH as Customer Sited Handover (CSH), In-Span Handover (ISH), In-Building
Handover (IBH)1, or Edge Node Handover (ENH) 2..
An Operator can divide the WEIL into smaller Service Access Bandwidth segments (SABs). This provides
an Operator with the capability to define the management of their access circuits by grouping similar
access circuit types and class of service parameters into dedicated SABs. NGA traffic must terminate on
a SAB(s). For example, WSEA could be on SAB 1 and NGA Services could on SAB 2.
On the Unified Gateway (UG) an operator places one (1) single UG order for a WEIL circuit. In so doing
the Operator provides eircom Wholesale with the details required to place two (2) internal orders:
1. the WEIL Physical Access order (this is from the eircom NTU located at an Operators nominated
POH; to the physical port on the serving eircom NGN node)
2. the SAB Logical Access order (this divides the WEIL into smaller Service Access Bandwidth
segments (SABs)
Both the WEIL Physical and the SAB Logical elements are explained in further details throughout this
document.
Each of the above two (2) internal orders will have their own unique circuit ID’s;
1. The WEIL Physical access circuit ID begins with EIL584xxxxx (for CSH), EIL585xxxxx (for ISH)
or EIL586xxxxx (for IBH). In addition EIL583xxxxx (for CSH with interim 10Gb/s NTU) and
EIL587xxxxx (for any no NTU WEIL’s) are also used.
2. The SAB logical access circuit ID begins in all cases with SAB584xxxxx.

Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link (WEIL) Product Description
Figure 1: Wholesale Interconnect Link
Figure 1a: WSEA and WEIL terminating on the same NGN Node.
In certain cases the Next Generation Access and/or Wholesale Symmetrical Ethernet Access and their
associated Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link connection may be within the same serving exchange
area and therefore may be connected to the same eircom NGN Node. NGA and/or Wholesale
Symmetrical Ethernet Access / Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link connections served by the same
eircom NGN Node provide the capability to configure the NGA and/or Wholesale Symmetrical Ethernet
Access logical connection as an uncontended connection. The eircom NGN Node is a non-blocking device
and therefore an Operator may inventory manage the Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link to ensure
that it is not overbooked, i.e. that the sum of the NGA and/or Wholesale Symmetrical Ethernet Access
bandwidths do not exceed the Service Access Bandwidth on the Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link
(see Section 5.2. of the Technical Handbook for description of Service Access Bandwidths). In this
scenario CoS is not required on the Wholesale Symmetrical Ethernet Access as the connection is
uncontended and is not carried across the eircom core NGN network (Circuit based CoS Option 5 as
described in Section 6.1.1. of the Technical Handbook should be specified for these connections).
Conversely, the Operator may inventory manage the Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link which may
result in the Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link being overbooked, i.e. that the sum of the Wholesale

Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link (WEIL) Product Description
Symmetrical Ethernet Access bandwidths exceed the Service Access Bandwidth on the Wholesale
Ethernet Interconnect Link (see Section 5.2. of the Technical Handbook for description of Service Access
Bandwidths). In this scenario QoS may be required on the Wholesale Symmetrical Ethernet Access and
the required level of circuit based class of service should be specified by an Operator.
It should be noted that more than one eircom NGN Node may be installed in some serving exchange
sites. These eircom NGN Nodes within the same serving exchange site will not be connected locally.

Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link (WEIL) Product Description
The eircom NGN network is being rolled out on a phased basis. Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Links
are available from a number of nominated locations. Appendix 1 no longer outlines the locations where
WEILs are currently available. Please refer to the roll-out schedule for up to date WEIL locations, if you
do not have access to the current roll-out schedule please contact your eircom Wholesale account
manager.
Operator requested locations other than those specified in the roll-out schedule will be individually
assessed on a case by case basis.
For an interim period (commencing 2nd May 2014), the 10Gb/s WEIL product is intended to be used by
operators who have a requirement to aggregate WSEA circuits of greater than or equal to 1Gb/s.
Should there be a requirement to aggregate WSEA circuits of less than 1Gb/s to a 10Gb/s WEIL,
operators should discuss this with their Account Manager and/or the NGN Ethernet Product Management
Team before placing an order, during this interim period. It should also be noted that the 10Gb/s NTU
required for this service is not held as a stock item and will have a lead time of 8 to 12 weeks.
Operators should therefore forecast their requirement for this service with their Account Manager
and/or the NGN Ethernet Product Management Team as early as possible’.

Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link (WEIL) Product Description
2.Product Components
The eircom Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link product provides connectivity (both physical and
logical) from the serving eircom NGN Node to an Operator’s nominated Point of Handover (POH).
This product consists of two components:

Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link (WEIL – physical): It provides single mode fibre
connectivity from the nominated eircom POH to an Operator POH and for CSH includes the
installation of an eircom NTU at the Operator premises.

Service Access Bandwidth (SAB – logical): The WEIL can be divided into a number of
Operator defined SABs, subject to a maximum number of ten per 1Gb/s WEIL and twenty
per 10Gb/s WEIL. It enables an Operator to configure the WEIL to meet their requirements
by defining which end user traffic is carried on a particular SAB. An Operator can configure
each SAB to support different end user traffic types. The SAB is configured to aggregate the
end user traffic to the SAB bandwidth and also prioritise traffic within the SAB.
2.1 Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link: WEIL - Physical
The physical access is delivered on a single mode fibre from the eircom network to an Operator POH
located at an Operator’s handover site, which can be Customer Sited Handover (CSH), In Span
Handover (ISH), In-Building Handover (IBH), or Edge Node Handover (ENH).
All Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link requests are subject to a full site survey.
The standard price applies where an Operator ’s premises is served by useable eircom owned duct 8 and
is within 500 metres of an available eircom access fibre which can connect to the serving eircom NGN
Node.
The standard price does not include the costs associated with (1) installing any new duct or (2) clearing
existing duct (3) new duct/poling and/or fibre build work (4) any civil works which may be necessary to
establish a connection between the nearest eircom fibre and an Operator premises.
All requests are subject to full site survey.
In Next Generation Access (NGA) locations, as published in the NGA ‘Advanced Pre-Qual’ File on the
Unified Gateway (UG) and ‘Max High (download) Speed’ of 25M and above OR where the end user’s
premises is within 500 metres of the NGA fibre cabinet, the standard price will apply where the end
user’s premises is served from the NGA serving exchange - with the exception where bridge, dual
carriageway or rail crossings are required where eircom reserves the right to recover any additional
costs incurred.
For non-NGA locations or in NGA locations where the ‘Max High (download) Speed’ is below 25M, the
standard price applies where the end user’s premises is served by useable eircom owned duct and is
within 500 metres of an available eircom access fibre which can connect to the serving eircom node.
eircom reserves the right to recover any additional costs incurred.
For the avoidance of doubt, in all cases (NGA and non-NGA areas), an Operator is responsible for any
costs associated with duct work within their end users own curtilage
The same SFP type should be installed at both ends of the fibre pair, connectivity will not be established
if there are different SFP installed in an Operator CE port.

In-Building Handover (IBH)
The eircom physical network termination point for a Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link, In-Building
Handover is the External Network-to-Network Interface (E-NNI) at the point of handover to an
Operator. For a Wholesale IBH, Ethernet Interconnect Link, a fibre cable is installed between an
Operator footprint and an eircom Optical Distribution Frame (ODF) in the same eircom exchange as the
serving eircom NGN Node.
The physical Co-location operational processes that support the interactions between eircom and an
Operator for the delivery of serviced accommodation in an eircom exchange are outlined in the “Process

Edge Node Handover (ENH).
The eircom physical network termination point for a Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link Edge Node
Handover is the External Network-to-Network Interface (E-NNI) on the eircom fibre patch panel located
within an eircom cabinet located on the Operator’s premises – this is the Point Of Handover to the
Operator.
Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link Edge Node Handover requires the installation and commissioning
of infrastructure on the Operator’s site. This infrastructure will include two mandatory diverse fibre
routes to eircom’s core network.
An Operator is responsible for obtaining any required way-leaves associated with the construction of
duct routes required for fibre routes.
For a Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link ENH, the Operator will present their fibre cable to eircom at
the entry point to the eircom cabinet, and eircom will then connect the Operator via the fibre patch
panel to the eircom network.
An XFP (LR only) optical transceiver for 10Gb/s WEIL will be installed on the eircom network facing an
Operator.
Where an Operator requests delivery of a WEIL to a Data Centre, processes and commercial terms will
be defined by the service provider operating the Data Centre.

Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link (WEIL) Product Description
2.2 Wholeasle Ethernet Interconnect Link (WEIL) – physical diversity
WEIL physical diversity enables the Operator to order a secondary diverse physical 1Gb/s WEIL circuit
between the eircom NTU located at the end user site to a physical port on a serving eircom NGN node.
An Operator can switch traffic from the primary physical 1 Gb/s WEIL circuit to the diverse physical 1
Gb/s WEIL circuit in the event of a fault occurring on the primary physical WEIL. This provides
Operators and their end users with a level of access resilience on WEIL circuits.
The physical access is delivered on a dual fibre from the eircom network to an Operator POH located at
an Operator’s handover site, which will always be Customer Sited Handover (CSH) for WEIL physical
diversity.
All WEIL diversity requests are subject to a full site survey prior to order. Following completion of the
Survey order the Operator will be informed of the results of the survey indicating what diversity options
are available.
The standard price applies where an Operator’s premises is served by useable eircom owned duct 9 and
is within 500 metres of an available eircom access fibre which can connect to the serving eircom NGN
Node.
The standard price does not include the costs associated with (1) installing any new duct or (2) clearing
existing duct (3) new duct/poling and/or fibre build work (4) any civil works which may be necessary to
establish a connection between the nearest eircom fibre and an Operator premises.
All requests are subject to full site survey.
In Next Generation Access (NGA) locations, as published in the NGA ‘Advanced Pre-Qual’ File on the
Unified Gateway (UG) and ‘Max High (download) Speed’ of 25M and above OR where the end user’s
premises is within 500 metres of the NGA fibre cabinet, the standard price will apply where the end
user’s premises is served from the NGA serving exchange - with the exception where bridge, dual
carriageway or rail crossings are required where eircom reserves the right to recover any additional
costs incurred.
For non-NGA locations or in NGA locations where the ‘Max High (download) Speed’ is below 25M, the
standard price applies where the end user’s premises is served by useable eircom owned duct and is
within 500 metres of an available eircom access fibre which can connect to the serving eircom node.
eircom reserves the right to recover any additional costs incurred.
For the avoidance of doubt, in all cases (NGA and non-NGA areas), an Operator is responsible for any
costs associated with duct work within their end users own curtilage
The same SFP (small form-factor pluggable) type should be installed at both ends of the fibre pair.
Connectivity will not be established if there is a different SFP installed in an Operator CE port.
There are currently two physical diversity options available on WEIL circuits.

WEIL physical diversity – Option A Dual NTU / Single NGN Node / Dual Fibre and Dual Duct
Two separate physical 1Gb/s WEIL circuits are implemented between two eircom NTUs located at the
end user site to two physical ports on the same serving eircom NGN node. Both WEIL circuits are active
and both fibre paths are located in separate ducts.
The Operator controls the failover between the two WEIL circuits through the use of Operator CPE which
ensures switchover from one WEIL circuit to another in the event of a failure occurring on one WEIL
circuit
It is the responsibility of the Operator to provide CPE with the relevant functionality which ensures that
should a fault occur on either WEIL, all traffic will be re-routed onto the other WEIL.

Aggregate Bandwidths (Expedited, Assured and Standard)
An Operator’s Wholesale Symmetrical Ethernet Access circuits will have had a Class of Service (CoS)
applied to them. The Operator end user traffic can be tagged with CoS. This provides an Operator with
the ability to manage and prioritise their access traffic.
Class of service effectively maps into the following three Class of Service queues:

Expedited Forwarding (EF)

Assured Forwarding (AF)

Standard (Best Effort)
The Operator specifies the bandwidth and Class of Service for the individual Wholesale Symmetrical
Ethernet Access end user connections. There will be a mixture of different Class of Service types
available with each end user connection on the WEIL.
For NGA and WSEA circuit offerings having specified the SABs, an Operator will then specify the
aggregate Expedited Forwarding and Assured Forwarding bandwidths for the SABs as outlined in Table
2.
An Operator will be responsible for ensuring that the sum of the Committed Information Rate (CIR)
values of their individual end user Wholesale Symmetrical Ethernet Access circuits associated with the
SAB does not exceed the SAB specified parameters.
The SAB parameters are the aggregated Expedited and Assured Forwarding bandwidths specified for
that SAB.

Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link (WEIL) Product Description
All WEIL physical diversity requests are subject to a full site survey. The results of the survey detail
what diversity options are available to the Operator and the price of each option. Diversity can only be
ordered on WEILs that are Customer Sited Handover (CSH).
4.3 Ordering, Provisioning and Fault Management
The Ordering, Provisioning and Maintenance processes will be supported by the Unified Gateway (UG)
which will be used to log orders and report faults for the product via the UG web GUI.
The UG is an order management and fault handling system designed to be the primary interface
between eircom and an Operator.
Operators’ will be able to enter all the necessary data via structured GUI screens for both ordering and
fault reporting. Once all the data has been entered the order or fault can be submitted. The UG will
process and validate the relevant orders and faults and will provide appropriate notifications in
response. Order status updates through to completion will be provided from the Wholesale SLA
Manager (WSLAM).
Any notifications from WSLAM that include connection or rental charges are estimates, and are not
contractually binding on eircom or an Operator. eircom will assess an order at Order Validation and
categorise the order as either Standard or Non-Standard. If an order is categorised as Non-Standard,
eircom may issue a quotation subject to a full site survey.
Fault status updates will be provided back to an Operator and can be viewed via the UG order and fault
tracking screens.
Service assurance on a fibre provided for an Operator on an WEIL IBH, will be provided by eircom, it is
the responsibility of an Operator to prove any fault from an Operator network into the fibre cable. If the
fibre cable needs to be replaced, it will be funded by an Operator.
4.3.1
Ordering the Service
An Operator can place an order for all 1Gb/s WEIL services and 10Gb/s WEIL ISH, IBH and ENH
services via the Unified Gateway, once a quotation has been obtained and any site preparation has been
adhered to. For 10Gb/s WEIL CSH services these orders must be placed via the eircom manual order
form. The following product rules will apply to each WEIL order:

Minimum of one Service Access Bandwidth is required per WEIL order

Operator is responsible to ensure that they do not breach the WEIL capacity

Operator is responsible to ensure that the Service Access Bandwidth is configured to meet their
end user requirements

For WEIL physical access diversity circuits a diversity survey must be completed prior to
ordering. The survey reference number must be referenced in the relevant input field when
placing the order. Diversity can only be ordered on WEILs that are Customer Sited Handover
(CSH).
A WEIL CSH order will provide connectivity from the eircom network to an Operator’s nominated
handover location. The physical connectivity order will require the installation of fibre and an eircom
NTU. Once the physical connectivity is completed the logical Service Access Bandwidth (SAB) shall be
delivered. This element of the order enables an Operator to configure the handover to support the
traffic profile (aggregate Expedited Forwarding and Assured Forwarding bandwidth) of an Operator’s
end users and references the WEIL on which it is provided.
Please refer to section 4 of the WEIL Process Manual for further detail on order placement via the UG.

Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link (WEIL) Product Description
A WEIL ISH order will provide connectivity from the eircom network to an Operator’s In-Span Handover
location in an Operator underground manhole. The physical connectivity will require the installation of
eircom fibre and equipment.
On placement of the order on the UG, an Operator will request eircom to nominate an eircom
underground manhole adjacent to the eircom exchange. An Operator and eircom shall agree on a site
visit to identify which side of the eircom nominated manhole will be accessed. An Operator will proceed
with provision of wayleaves for an Operator underground manhole and provision of the ODF to allow
eircom to terminate the eircom fibre cable for the WEIL ISH. eircom will provide a Clerk of Works to
supervise access when an Operator is ready to break through (civil works) to the eircom nominated
manhole. eircom will complete physical connectivity of the WEIL to the POH in an Operator underground
manhole.
Once the WEIL ISH physical connectivity is completed the logical Service Access Bandwidth (SAB) shall
be delivered. This element of the order enables an Operator to configure the handover to support the
traffic profile (aggregate Expedited Forwarding and Assured Forwarding bandwidth) of an Operator’s
end users and references the WEIL on which it is provided.
A WEIL IBH order will provide connectivity from the eircom network to an Operator’s nominated InBuilding Handover located within an eircom exchange. The WEIL physical connectivity will require
preparation and installation of eircom between an Operator Co-location rack and the eircom ODF, within
the same eircom exchange as the eircom NGN Node.
Before placing the order on the UG an Operator must have a Licence for Co-location footprint. On
request, (QIB Order Type) eircom will undertake to assess the work that is required to prepare the
eircom exchange facility for an In-Building Handover and provide a quotation for an Operator for the
WEIL.
eircom will install (PIB Order type) the physical connectivity of the WEIL from the POH to the eircom
NGN Node within the same eircom exchange in lien with the order for the WEIL. The QIB and PIB order
processes are outlined in the “Process Manual for Physical Co-location”.
Once the WEIL IBH physical connectivity is completed the logical Service Access Bandwidth (SAB) shall
be delivered. This element of the order enables an Operator to configure the handover to support the
traffic profile (aggregate Expedited Forwarding and Assured Forwarding bandwidth) of an Operator’s
end users and references the WEIL on which it is provided.
A WEIL ENH order will provide connectivity from the eircom network to an Operator’s nominated Edge
Node Handover located within the eircom secure cabinet in the Operator’s site. The WEIL physical
connectivity will require the installation of eircom infrastructure.
The Operator will present their fibre cable to eircom at the entry point to the eircom cabinet, and eircom
will then connect the Operator to the eircom network
There are three stages in the provision of WEIL-ENH:

Wholesale Account Manager with 1+1 protection.
Once the WEIL ENH physical connectivity is completed the logical Service Access Bandwidth (SAB) shall
be delivered. This element of the order enables an Operator to configure the handover to support the
traffic profile (aggregate Expedited Forwarding and Assured Forwarding bandwidth) of an Operator’s
end users and references the WEIL on which it is provided.
Delivery Timelines
Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link (WEIL) orders are delivered using fibre which is
subject to survey and availability. The lead-time associated with these orders may be
classified in some cases as Standard or Non-Standard with a defined lead-time.
In cases where the fibre delivery will be treated as Non-Standard, then eircom will
assess this order and provide a forecasted due delivery date. The forecast due date is
based on the time to provide each element of the service.
Please refer to section 2 of the WEIL SLA for further detail on the delivery lead-times,
including definition of Standard and Non-Standard orders.
Confirmation of Delivery
An order is deemed to be complete on provision of the Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect
Link order which establishes the service between the nominated handover location and
the eircom core network. On completion of the order an Operator shall receive a
Delivery Notification.
This order status throughout the life of the order will also be available for an Operator to
track on the UG.
4.3.2
Other orders – change, move, cease and cancel
Following the delivery of the Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link and associated logical circuit an
Operator can request changes to the service, move the service or cease the service. The changes that
can be requested for the service are:

Change bandwidth on Service Access Bandwidth

Change Aggregate Bandwidth (Expedited Forwarding and Assured Forwarding %) on Service
Access Bandwidth
An operator cannot request a change of existing 1Gb/s WEIL bandwidth from 1Gb/s to 10Gb/s. This is
deemed a new provide and cessation of current service and is ordered via the manual order form and
not via the UG.
An Operator may also request a cease on a Service Access Bandwidth providing all associated end user
traffic has either been moved or ceased prior to this. Please refer to the Process Manual for further
detail on change order process, move order and cease process.
If an Operator wishes to cancel a Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link order before it is delivered, this
order must be placed prior to installation of the service commencing. See Cancel Process within Section
4.5 of the WEIL Process Manual.
Where a Site Survey and fibre cabling is undertaken on request of an Operator for IBH, eircom will
charge associated labour rates and costs incurred under Service Schedule 101 of the eircom Access
Reference Offer. These charges will apply as part of the site preparation and will apply should the WEIL
be cancelled.

Fault Management
Please refer to section 5 of the WEIL Process Manual for further details on fault handling.
Logging a fault
A valid fault for this service is logged via the Unified Gateway after an Operator has
proven the fault out of their network. The Operator should log the fault against the
WEIL physical reference number only.
For WEIL IBH, an Operator must prove the fault out of their network and beyond the
Co-location optical patch panel to the eircom POH, the ODF, before logging a fault on
the UG.
Fault handling process
Please refer to section 5 of the WEIL Process Manual for the fault handling process for
this service. The status of a fault can be tracked throughout its lifecycle via the UG
web GUI by an Operator. Only those faults relating to an Operator will be visible to
them.
Service shall be deemed to have been restored when the fault condition is resolved on
the eircom network and service availability restored, notification will be provided to
eircom via an Operator.
4.4 Billing
There are connection and rental charges associated with the Wholesale Ethernet Interconnect Link.
Once the order is completed and the WEIL is commissioned billing shall commence in the next billing
cycle. Billing shall be carried out on a monthly basis in advance and the service shall be identified on
the bill.
Charges for WEIL ENH will also include the following elements

WEIL ENH Infrastructure connection and rental charges
All operators are provided (via the postal service) with a monthly paper bill for NGN Ethernet Services.
In addition to this a soft copy bill can also be provided upon request. For further details please review
the billing section in the WEIL Industry Process Manual (IPM).
In the event that an Operator has a query regarding their bill they should contact their Wholesale
Customer Relationship Manager.
4.5 Equipment
Each party retains title to its own equipment, including any equipment that may be required on the
premises of the other party. Each party shall have the right to recover its equipment following
cessation of the service. The parties will co-operate with each other in respect of requests to recover
equipment.
