Along with the deployment or rollout of xDSL (Digital Subscriber Line of any type) problems can occur with the time and effort spent between the customer service acquisition and the real equipping of the service in the operator facilities. Until now the service is equipped as described as follows: - The customer buys the service together with a router modem (as a kit) and informs the service provider (SP) about the service activation. - The SP contacts the operator who owns the physical facilities to configure the service for its clients. - The operator configures specifically the cross-connection for that customer in the corresponding DSLAM (opex. effort). - An operators' technical staff is sent for physical installation of the equipment (to plug the copper cable into the respective DSLAM splitter). - The operator informs the SP about the completion of the service configuration. - The customer is informed about the service activation by the SP.
