What About Collocation Service?

Author : Gerardo Burns

If you are looking for bandwidth assistance and technical support for order entry and invoice billing, you need collocation service. This is very essential for those on the online marketing business. Having the right collocation service helps business owners save a great deal of cost expenses. The setup cost for this depends on the type of installment plan and speed. A direct connection to the provider's equipment at 100 mbps minimum can range from $10 to $15 per mbps charged on a monthly basis. The installment charge range from $500-800 depending on the collocation company.

The service provider can install its equipment in OTE buildings through an interconnected network, taking into account client needs and investment. A direct connection to the service provider's equipment can be very expensive, but that is probably the optimum solution. There are however other options for collocation such as;

1. Remote Collocation. When the service provider installs the equipment in another place, not in the OTE local exchange, and receives local loop services for unbundling. In this case the OTE provides the Remote Collocation service. However, connecting the OTE frame main distribution to Provider Reception Manhole is possible, if applied to the service provider's pair cable routed to the installations at its POP. This is different in local exchanges below 5000 subscribers where the PRM is constructed by the service provider.

2. Physical Collocation. When OTE provides a specialized area in its buildings or perimeters all support securities available such as; easy access, air conditioning, fire detection, etc. for the service provider's installation of telecommunication equipment. There is also related assistance support provided for the telecommunication service to offer local loop services for unbundling. These facilities can be a PC internal link connection and a PC optical fiber service.

Moreover, a relevant backhaul facility that relates to telecommunication transmission traffic from PC through OTE network and to the Provider's POP is provided as additional service for collocation. Another is an OTE ILTC Connection to the Provider's ELC. The ILTC - ELC Connections in the TSPRM Telecommunications is built by the Service Provider.

Whether this system is feasible or not, OTE provides remote Collocation services for local exchange to less than 5000 subscribers. This is in accordance with the program for broadband development. This is probably the most efficient thing about Collocation if installed according to this system. Take note that there will always be a special agreement with the Service Provider before anything is laid for collation service for local exchange.
