OSS Releases

OSS version releases are issued using a triplet of integers: MAJOR.MINOR.BUILD. Each version is meant to improve a prior release, namely bug fixes, enhancements and new features. The purpose of this version labeling is to track the type of change that has occurred between releases. The three types of releases are: BUILD - minor improvements including bug fixes, enhancements and new minor features. Revision releases are scheduled every two months or unscheduled for critical fixes. BUILD releases should not modify service specification. MINOR - an evolutionary incremental improvement that includes all PATCH release improvements and new features allowing to extend service specification. MAJOR - a revolutionary change accommodating sweeping architecture, approach, and implementation changes – or – large change in service specification.

• •

OSS Minor and Major Releases will be synchronized with Service Releases planned with 4-month calendar periods. For example, S.R 1.1 is expected at OSD + 4 months (end of September/beginning of October 2011) and will include, among the other, the availability of Volume Booster Option (for Customers requesting its activation) and Change Location feature.

An account can have following status: Free, Active, Active Stand-by,Active Suspended, Expired and Blocked. Accounts are defined by their identifier (SAI), their ActivationKey, their associated Product, the geographical location, and their Population ID.

Account

Accounts are the entities identifying the configuration of service provided to an End-User

Account Creation

Procedure to create new Accounts. Accounts can be created by several means: • manually, by an authenticated remote user, on OSS Web Portal • in automated way, through Customer software interfacing with Skylogic using Web Services If the Account does not have a set Expiration Date, a default date based on contractual end of service is used. Accounts expire at the end of their corresponding Expiration Date. Acceptable expiration dates are always set as the last day of a month. It can be modified during the life-cycle of an account; this is the ID the End-User shall use during Self Activation. For the generation of SAIs and Activation Code, Customers may use personal naming/numbering identifier, or the useful tools provided by Skylogic on the OSS Web Portal. Identifiers must be unique (i.e., multiple accounts identified by the same SAI are not allowed). Moreover, SAI and Activation Code can have the same identifier. All identifiers are case sensitive and shall only contain letters, numbers, underscores ("_"), dashes ("-") and dots ("."). Their maximum length shall be 32 characters.

Account Expiration

Procedure to expire an Active account. When an account has an Expired status, UTs are always forced to Unprovisioned state.

Activation Key

Alphanumeric string used during Self Activation process to enable the service for a specific Account.

Active (Account)

An Account has an Active Status at the end of the SelfActivation process. An Account is in Active: stand-by Status when the UT is unprovisioned, as a result of a request for change location. End –User is unable to navigate until the successful next Self Activation. The Account remains billable. OSS features that include activities to ensure that services are continuously available with regard to the agreed SLA (Service Level Agreement) and QoS (Quality of Service) performance levels. An Account is in Blocked Status when the RF performances are so poor to impair the service quality or when the End-User Trial is not correct. The Account remains billable.

Spot beams allow satellites to transmit different data signals using the same frequency. Because satellites have a limited number of frequencies to use, the ability to re-use a frequency for different geographical locations (without different data interfering with each other at the receiver) allows for more local channels to be carried, since the same frequency can be used in several regions. Footprint that is covered by all KA-SAT beams. Person, or working team, requesting to be contacted by Skylogic NOC for Incident and Event Management purposes. Customer Premises Equipment, i.e., the End-User device (typically, a PC, or notebook) connected to the User Terminal. Customer is an administrative entity related to a Skylogic/Eutelsat customer. One or more Populations can be associated to the same Customer.

Any person using a User Terminal. An Expired account is an account that has exceeded its expiration date. For these types of Account the service is no longer accessible. Fair Access Policy A newly created Account. Account not yet used for the provisioning of any Terminal. The transmission link from the GW to UT. In other words, it is the transmission link from the Teleport to User Terminals. All OSS features supporting standard provisioning service requests, such as, Account Creation, Management and Expiration.

Outdoor Unit A UT is online when it is connected to the satellite network. A UT is offline when it is not connected to the satellite network. Operational Support System A person with access to the OSS. Entity with operative attributes only, related to a Customer, that defines a group of Accounts with the following characteristics: • all Accounts refer to the same Customer, • all Accounts can be provisioned with a specific set of homogeneous Products. It is used to identify a specific set of technical/operational parameters that uniquely identify distinctive features and performances of a specific service. Attribute that identifies a UT after a successful account Activation. When the End-User needs to relocate the User Terminal to a different location: • End-Users are guided through each step of Account Relocation with clear instructions and explanations on how to proceed

Relocation (UT)

• The OSS allows to relocate a User Terminal only
where contractually possible for the associated Account

It will be available starting from S.R. 1.1

• Relocation under a different Beam is impossible
without prior notice to Skylogic Return Link (Channel) It is the transmission link from a UT to the satellite GW

SAI

Satellite Account Identifier

A SAI is a string generated by a Customer composed of up to 32 chars*. An extended SAI identifies the User Account. <32 chars*>@<company ID> * case sensitive letters, numbers, underscores ("_"), dashes ("-") and dots (".") only.

The Self Activation procedure allows to activate an Account on an Unprovisioned Terminal; If the Self Activation Procedure is performed for the first time, the Account will change its status from “free” to “active”. The Self Activation is a web-based procedure, guiding EndUsers/Installers in: • assessing the quality of installation • verifying satellite network synchronization • proceeding with the actual Service activation Self activation can also be used to re-activate an Account after an Account Relocation.

Notes

Self Activation

This process main goal is to “bind” the MAC address of the User Terminal to a given account: 1 Terminal ↔1 Account The association MAC-SAI is granted through the Activation Key.

STW

Sliding Time Window Access Domain on KA-SAT is based on Viasat® SurfBeam 2 technology, which is a modified version of the WiMax protocol adapted by Viasat Inc to the satellite physical link; it adopts the most recent technology for modulation on Forward channel, i.e. DVBS2, and channel access method, i.e. MF-TDMA (Multi Frequency-TDMA). Any Account in Temporary Suspension. This Option allows Customers to intentionally apply and release a temporary service suspension to specific EndUsers accessing Standard services. Tooway service over the KA-SAT coverage. Branded as Tooway and B2B Services. User Terminals not associated to any Account or User Terminals during Relocation; in other words, UTs for which the Self-Activation process has not been initiated yet. An Account not currently on Temporary Suspension. User Terminals are the ViaSat SurfBeam® (pre KA-SAT Service) and Surfbeam 2® (KA-SAT Service) Satellite Modems, connected to the satellite dish. Terminals will differ according to the application with which they are associated: • Basic Terminal for Consumer and B2B Services • Advanced Terminal for B2B Services It provides Customers with the ability to make voice calls via the infrastructure. Traffic volume resulting from the aggregation of Traffic Volume on the Forward Link and the Return Link. Volume Boosters offer Customers the opportunity to occasionally assign a pre-defined quota of extra volume traffic (e.g., 1 GByte of aggregated traffic) at nominal speed to their End Users. Forward Link =Vup Return Link =Vdown A suspended Account reverted to its nominal status is known as Unsuspended. The activation of this feature does not suspend accounting and billing of suspended Accounts.

OSS Web Portal is the web interface to access the Skylogic OSS through user authentication ; For Customers it has two main functionalities: Assurance and Fulfillment.

Notes

Web Portal (OSS)

Web Services (OSS)

Set of APIs (Application Programming Interface), based on SOAP and XML-RPC functions, available through https authentication.

Web Services allow Customers to query the Skylogic database to obtain detailed information on the status of particular End-User service and equipment. Through Web Services Customers can also provision the Accounts by accessing the provisioning system directly, in order to automate the overall provisioning process. This will give Customers the possibility to integrate their subscriber management system with the Skylogic infrastructure.
