Distribution Type Definition
Direct to Occupier Space Only The standard cable distribution method in the UK. A carrier will run fibre from their equipment in the telecom room directly to the occupier. Each time a new occupier needs services, a new fibre will be ran to that occupier.
Full Distribution Full distribution means that multiple fibres are pre-run throughout the building to make connections to occupiers faster. Fibre will be run from the basement to top floor and will have accessible termination points every 4 floors (or fewer). This set up drastically reduces the time it takes for occupiers to receive new service.
Other Items Definition
BT Openreach Openreach is an infrastructure platform open to over 500 secondary providers. These providers can lease fibre and copper from Openreach to provide service to occupiers.
Back-Up Electricity Internet services are provided over equipment that is powered by electricity. Having back-up electricity mitigates the risk of a power failure disrupting internet service.
Standard Wayleave Standard wayleave agreements describe the landlord’s rules for installing, maintaining, and removing telecom equipment. Presence of these proactively developed terms & conditions help ensure there is a streamlined process in place to allow new and existing providers to supply service to occupiers within the building.
