Introduction for Suppliers

Suppliers are AltNet/Connectivity Providers who wish to make their fibre services available on the Fibre Gateway for Communication Service Providers (Tenants). In order for tenants to perform pre-order checks (availability, appointing) and to place orders, suppliers must either implement the Supplier API or have a custom connector to their existing API.

Fibre Gateway Overview

To send order updates, suppliers must integrate with the Supplier Updates API which the Fibre Gateway provides to send KCIs to tenants. Whilst pre-order checks are synchronous, order operations can be asynchronous and rely on this API in order to confirm or reject requests.
