Internet offers

OVHcloud offers various internet access packages that contain at least one internet access but also VoIP lines, emails and domain names.

You can view offers here: https://www.ovhtelecom.fr/offre-internet/i.

Services can be managed using these API endpoints: /pack/xdsl: Manage Internet package offerings /xdsl: Manage Internet access, sub-services and options * /connectivity: will replace /xdsl. For now it allows to do the eligibility for copper and fiber offers.

Eligibility

Overview

Eligibility methods are available on the endpoint path /connectivity/eligibility/.

The objective of eligibility is to resend eligible internet offers for a given endpoint (delivery point), in order to order this offer. An endpoint can be an existing address or line, identified by the line number and its status (active or inactive).

Methods return an asynchronous xdsl.AsyncTask structure, such as:

{
  "status": a string, the status of the task ("pending", "done" or "error")
  "result": an object, in case of success, the method result
  "error": a string, the error message in case of an error
}

Here is an example of a pending task:

{
  "status": "pending",
  "result": null,
  "error": null
}

A successful example task:

{
  "status": "success",
  "result": { "some key": "some value"},
  "error": null
}

And finally an example of a failed task:

{
  "status": "error",
  "result": null,
  "error": "The action failed, here's why"
}

You should check the status of the task, and try again a few seconds later if the task is still in the "pending" status.

Finding the endpoints

For a copper line, the endpoint is a line identified by its number and status. If no line exists, you will need to test by address to see if you are eligible to create a neighbouring line..

For fiber, the endpoint can be identified by a building identifier, or an OTP (Optical Termination Point) identifier.

An address is identified by a street number and a street code. To find them, use this process:

  1. Get the list of localities from a zip code
  2. Get the list of streets for a locality
  3. Get the available street numbers for a given street code
  4. Get the list of buildings for an address
  5. Get the list of buildings for a specific line
Getting a list of localities from a zip code

Example: we want to search the localities for the zipCode "91400".

The request:

with the following data:

{
  "zipCode": "91400"
}

The response:

{
  "error": null,
  "result": [
    {
      "inseeCode": "91471",
      "zipCode": "91400",
      "locality": "ORSAY",
      "city": "ORSAY"
    },
    {
      "inseeCode": "91471",
      "zipCode": "91400",
      "locality": "ORSIGNY",
      "city": "ORSAY"
    },
    {
      "inseeCode": "91534",
      "zipCode": "91400",
      "locality": "SACLAY",
      "city": "SACLAY"
    }
  ],
  "status": "ok"
}
Getting the list of streets for a locality

Example: We want to obtain the list of streets of the locality "ORSAY" identified by the INSEE code "91471".

The request:

with the following data:

{
  "inseeCode": "91471"
}

The response:

{
  "result": [
    {
      "streetName": "ALLEE ALFRED POHU",
      "streetCode": "9147134101"
    },
    {
      "streetCode": "9147132200",
      "streetName": "RUE DU VERGER"
    },
    {
      "streetName": "RUE ELISA DESJOBERT",
      "streetCode": "9147111200"
    },
    {
      "streetName": "RUE ETIENNE BAUER",
      "streetCode": "9147102180"
    },
    {
      "streetName": "RUE FACULTE D ORSAY",
      "streetCode": "9147110752"
    }
  ],
  "status": "ok",
  "error": null
}
Getting the available street numbers for a given street code

Example: we want the street numbers for the street "RUE DU VERGER" identified by the streetCode "9147132200".

The request:

with the following data:

{
  "streetCode": "9147132200"
}

The response:

      "type": "HOUSE",
      "name": "",
      "nro": "91122BUR"
    }
  ]
}
**Getting the building references from a given line number

Example: we want the list of buildings for the inactive line number "0123456789".

The request:

      "stairs": [],
      "type": "HOUSE",
      "reference": "IMB/91471/C/NT8X"
    }
  ],
  "status": "ok"
}

We found a single building that is a house.

Doing a copper eligibility (ADSL, VDSL or SDSL)

Possible cases are:

Doing an eligibility on a line

If you known the number and status of the line then you can check its eligibility. The diffence between an active and an inactive line is that an active line has an active Internet access, whereas the inactive line is just an identifier to use to order an Internet access (usually this is the previous number of the last owner, who moved with his line).

It is important to distinguish an active line from an inactive line. Always verify that the address returned is the actual address of the installation.

Here is the request:

to do with the following POST data:

{
  "lineNumber": "0123456789",
  "status": "active"
}

Here is a partial successfull response example:

We have omitted some SDSL offers in this example due to the size of the response.

The response is composed of:

  • a result.offers table that will list all the offers and if the given line is eligible or not;
  • a result.endpoint structure that gives line information: address and characteristics.

Here is a description of the offer codes:

code type description
ADSL-MAX_SHARED ADSL ADSL partial
ADSL-MAX_FULL ADSL ADSL full unbundling
VDSL-MAX_SHARED VDSL VDSL partial
VDSL-MAX_FULL VDSL VDSL full unbundling
SDSL-MAX SDSL SDSL monopair

For the SDSL offers with guaranteed bandwidth, the offer code is formed with:

  • the offer type: SDSL
  • the guaranteed speed: 1M, 2M, 4M, ..
  • the number of pairs: 1P, 2P or 4P

A few examples:

code type description
SDSL-1M-1P SDSL Monopair SDSL with 1M guaranteed
SDSL-2M-2P SDSL 2 pairs SDSL with 2M guaranteed
SDSL-16M-4P SDSL 4 pairs SDSL with 16M guaranteed
...
Searching for an active or inactive line for an address

The request:

with the following POST data:

{

      },
      "lineNumber": "0123456789"
    }
  ]
}

For this address we found a single inactive line with the number 0123456789.

You can now use the eligibility by line.

Unlisted numbers cannot be retrieved using this method.

**Searching for eligibility for an address

This will return an eligibility by address, to be used for the creation of a neighbouring line. A neigbouring line creation consists in checking the availability of new copper lines by searching for your nearest neighbour line information.

If you already have an active or inactive line, you should use the line test instead.

Searching fiber eligibility (FTTH)

For fiber eligibility, we have two scenarios:

  • I have an Optical Termination Point (OTP) fiber ID, which I will use for eligibility;
  • I do not have an OTP fiber identifier and will use a building identifier for the eligibility.

A building can be a house or a building with multiple housing. The building can be found from an address or from an existing copper line.

The eligibility process from an address is as follows:

  1. Getting the list of localities from a zip code
  2. Getting the list of streets for a locality
  3. Getting the available street numbers for a given street code
  4. Getting all buildings for a specific address
  5. Searching eligibility for the selected building

From one line, we have to:

  1. Get the building references from a given line number
  2. Search eligibility for the selected building

For an OTP, this is the simpliest:

  1. Doing the eligibility test for the OTP

Here are the details for each type of requests.

Searching eligibility on a building

Example: we want to check the eligibility of FTTH offers for the building identified by the reference "IMB/91471/C/NT8X".

The request:

with the following data:

{
  "building": "IMB/91471/C/NT8X"
}

The response:

{
  "error": null,
  "status": "ok",
  "result": {
    "offers": [
      {
        "product": {
          "pairs": null,
          "uploadRate": 250,
          "guaranteed": false,
          "code": "FTTH-MAX-300M",
          "type": "FTTH",
          "grt": [],
          "name": "FTTH-Max 300M download and 250M upload",
          "provider": "KOSC",
          "downloadRate": 300
        },
        "eligibility": {
          "estimatedDownloadRate": null,
          "estimatedUploadRate": null,
          "underConditions": [],
          "activationTypes": [],
          "reasons": [],
          "eligible": true
        }
      },
      {
        "product": {
          "grt": [],
          "name": "FTTH-Max 1G download and 250M upload",
          "downloadRate": 1000,
          "provider": "KOSC",
          "pairs": null,
          "guaranteed": false,
          "type": "FTTH",
          "code": "FTTH-MAX-1G",
          "uploadRate": 250
        },
        "eligibility": {
          "estimatedDownloadRate": null,
          "activationTypes": [],
          "eligible": true,
          "reasons": [],
          "estimatedUploadRate": null,
          "underConditions": []
        }
      }
    ],
    "endpoint": {
      "referenceType": "building",
      "portability": null,
      "address": {
        "door": null,
        "floor": null,
        "stairs": null,
        "zipCode": "91400",
        "city": "ORSAY",
        "streetNumber": "2",
        "housingComplex": null,
        "inseeCode": "91471",
        "ownerName": null,
        "streetName": "RUE DU VERGER",
        "building": null,
        "streetCode": "9147123456"
      },
      "fiberInfo": {
        "nro": "91122ABC",
        "operatorCode": "FI",
        "buildingType": "HOUSE",
        "buildingName": "",
        "buildingReference": "IMB/91234/A/NT6Z",
        "operatorName": "ORANGE"
      },
      "reference": "IMB/91234/A/NT6Z",
      "copperInfo": null
    },
    "eligibilityReference": "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz01"
  }
}

In the result for the "offers" table, the boolean attribute eligibility.eligible tell us we are eligible for "FTTH-Max 300M download and 250M upload" and "FTTH-Max 1G download and 250M upload" offers.

Searching eligibility from an OTP identifier

Example: we want to check FTTH offers eligibility for the OTP "OO-XXXX-XXXX/C".

The request:

with the following data:

{
  "otp": "OO-XXXX-XXXX/C"
}

The response is the same as in the previous example.
