Friday's reflections from the desk of CEO Paul Bradbury

28 July 2023

Today marks another significant milestone on the journey to One Touch Switch. Our test simulator is now live and available for use. This allows you to perform a ‘connection test’ by sending test messages and receiving responses.

If you haven’t yet onboarded, all you need to do is go onto our homepage and click on become a TOTSCo Hub User. You can then book your test slot. Before coming to your test slot, please take a look at the Hub User Guide to ensure you’re well-prepared.

If you ever need any help or support, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’re here and ready to assist you in any way we can.

Our Industry Test Groups kicked off this week. We held our first two with large and medium communication providers (CPs) this week, next week we will meet with smaller CPs and Altnets. Coordinating the OTS test approach is a crucial step to achieving OTS go-live. We will be sharing all minutes and agendas on our website and giving updates at our monthly Stakeholder Forums.
The Team went along to the Switching and Wholesale Special Interest Group this week, this is all part of our engagement programme. We heard that many of the smaller CPs would like more support as there is a lot to know. So, we are offering an opportunity to book a call with Debra Revens our Industry Liaison lead. You can book your call by emailing us.

Finally, I wanted to thank those of you who have already sent in feedback to our TOTSCo OTS Charging Structure proposal and request for feedback, which we released this week. Your views and comments are very valuable and we look forward to receiving them before the deadline of 11 August.

That’s all from me. Have a great weekend.

All the best
