Working directly with EMIS LV

EMIS LV over N3 – problems identified 2006Worked together through various issuesSatisfactory conclusion early 2007N3 deployed the QoS configuration across entire Main-to-Branch estateEMIS LV transactional traffic prioritised with QoS;

AF1 – Bulk transfer traffic (e.g. prints/file transfers)AF2 – Transactional traffic (e.g. screen updates)

QoS – prioritised performance

Focus on GP-specific products

• Pilot underway – initially 45 sites– Technology ‘proving’– Second larger pilot – develop mass implementation capability

• Traffic will have QoS markings (but can’t guarantee they will be honoured end to end)

• Resilience initially via ISDN• May not support VoIP • Unlikely to be suitable for entire GP estate• Pilot includes formal user feedback
