More trigger level reductions from BT Wholesale
BT Wholesale has released another 10 trigger reductions. These new reductions are in response to a new method of linking exchanges together for the backhaul. This has resulted in some cost savings, allowing triggers to be reduced. This new system is not due for deployment until July 2003, so any of these ten that trigger, will not get a date before July. The changes are shown in the table below.
Ten trigger reductions is not much to shout about, unless it is your exchange. At least it shows that BT Wholesale is not ignoring ways of reducing triggers and one hopes that these ten reductions are not the only ones, but perhaps the start of new wave of reductions. The most vocal group to complain in response to these reductions is likely to be those previously considered 'unviable' by BT Wholesale. Hopefully these unviable exchanges will be able to benefit from similar cost reductions and receive an attainable trigger level.
