The Hyperion platform includes registered providers of fixed Internet access services, of any access technology (ADSL, VDSL, FTTH, DOCSIS, Satellite, FWA, etc.).
When a provider registers to the Hyperion platform, the provider’s subscribers can perform measurements as registered users, and their measurement results can be included in the official EETT statistics. In addition, the provider can acquire administration access to the platform and see statistics about their subscribers’ measurements. In particular, the number of connections and measurements, their distributions, as well as the percentage of the nominal speeds achieved.
In order to register to the platform, the provider should send via email to firstname.lastname@example.org the following information:
1) The name by which the subscriber wants to be registered to the Hyperion platform (a short name, with latin letters) along with the ISP's logo.
2) The email addresses of the representative(s) of the ISP and which were used for registering with Hyperion to be granted with administrative access to the system.
Once the ISP representives are notified that their administrative accounts have been activated, they may proceed in adding the IP ranges and the offered contracts for their ISP.
The IP address space of each ISP should be added both for IPv4 and Ipv6. The address space should cover all the potential addresses an ISP customer might be assigned with. They will be used to check whether a measurement from a specific IP should be recorded or not.
It is noted that the IP address blocks should not contain addresses used by their mobile network subscribers (if the provider also has a mobile network).
For each offered contract of fixed network connections, the following fields need to be filled in: the nominal speeds for download and upload, as well as the technology of the specific contract. The nominal speeds are the speeds defined in the subscriber’s contract. Usually they coincide with the advertised speeds and represent the maximum theoretical speeds that can be achieved in the subscriber’s connection, depending on the access technology.
