A step-by-step guide to creating lit fiber services agreements between a provider of telecommunications services and its customers.
Lit fiber services are the very pulse of today’s telecommunications industry, making possible “speed of light” data delivery and communications transactions over fiber optic lines. Whether the client business provides wholesale internet access for customer applications such as email, file sharing, web hosting, data backup, video, VOIP, or standard telecommunications options, the necessary bandwidth for these operations first must be contracted for under a lit fiber services agreement.
Fiber Optic Telecommunications Networks: Lit Fiber Services Agreements provides numerous tools for providers and customers to negotiate contracts that protect their interests most effectively. It offers step-by-step guidance through the process of drafting a strong and enforceable lit fiber services agreement by clearly explaining the use and purpose of the three major components of these agreements:
The book also examines a collection of clauses and contract forms that are only secondary to the three major elements of a services agreement but which can, nonetheless, be critical elements in a variety of circumstances. Topics these clauses and contracts pertain to include: portability; on-net, near-net, and off-net services; most favored treatment; minimum purchase obligation; preferred provider status; acceptable use policy; termination agreement; third-party vendor; intellectual property; bilateral carrier services agreement; reseller agreement; independent referral agreement; and bandwidth trading.
In his discussion of the agreements and contract elements, the author provides several alternate examples of the sample language so that the reader can select the clause that is most appropriate for a particular situation. This discussion helps the reader to master all the major elements of these agreements between a provider and its customer and comprehensively deal with the most important contract elements pertaining to high speed, low latency telecommunications services.
The book comes with a CD-ROM that contains the full text of the book and includes clauses, phrases, and sample forms, allowing copying and pasting for easy customization of a lit fiber services agreement.
