What do the BT exchange VP status colours actual refer to ?

BT exchanges report their broadband Virtual Path status in terms of colours, typically RED, AMBER, GREEN, and BLUE.
Does anyone know what the definitions of each of the colours is ?.

     
  • How are the thresholds measured ?,
  • What are the limit values for each band ?.
  • Are the colour ranges determined by peak or average measurements ?.
  • Are there other colours ?.
  • How frequently can the colours change ?.

So many questions, but I can't find any answers on Google !  Embarrassed

Re: What do the BT exchange VP status colours actual refer to ?

I can answer one question Smiley
Blue = Significantly below the re-grade planning rule
Green = Below the re-grade planning rule
Yellow = Internal re-grade planning rule upgrade threshold breached
Red = VP above threshold with potential customer impact (Bandwidth increase delayed due to other network contention)
I don't think BTW even release the details on the thresholds/how they're measured etc.
