Under the Telecommunications Strategic Review in 2004 British Telcom (BT) began separating its wholesale supply operations (OpenReach) from retail customer facing operations (BT Retail).

The UK's communications regulator OFCOM then stipulated that BT Retail and third party Communication Providers should use the same mechanisms to access the OpenReach network, to ensure 'equivalence of input' and from 2007 as part of the initiative OpenReach began asking Communication Providers to migrate to the successor protocol WLR3 as part of its restructuring, while continuing to support WLR2 until 31st March 2011.

Shaftesbury’s WLR3 solutions enable CPs to quickly migrate to the new protocol and subsequently interact with OpenReach. Wholesale Line Rental 3 (WLR3) represents a huge opportunity for Communications Providers to significantly enhance their competitive edge and streamline their service management capability, an opportunity that can be easily wasted by selecting the wrong solution.
