The service provider backbone networks have increased in bandwith which originates
in the followings:
Spread of broadband connections (ADSL and Cable),
The mobile service providers move increasingly towards data communication (3G,
Internet content provides more bandwidth intensive applications than before (Video
Sharing, IPTV, and peer to peer networking)
The Enterprise market also has a growing need for value added provider services,
like MPLS based IP/VPN communication. The traditional VPN models and services
should also be implemented in MPLS networks, therefore L2VPNs are becoming more
All these effects necessitate the development of the service provider backbone
networks (more bandwidth, QoS functions, VPN, data-voice integration).
Relying on its experience of several years gained in the Telco/SP/ISP sphere,
Synergon has been a partner of the largest service providers and mobile service
providers as the most prepared domestic system integrator. The real value is expertise,
by means of which we can help our partners from planning through implementation
as far as operational counseling.
Companies with their own infrastructure lease out the already proliferated ADSL
infrastructure to different Internet service providers, which are able to sell
their own services to the customers by putting the diverse enhanced level IP services
(e-mail, web server, VPN, voice, video) into the foreground or through their more
effective operational processes. The expertise Synergon has accumulated during
more than a decade and half long period, together with the application of the
new technologies which Synergon is capable of acquiring due to the close cooperation
with manufacturers, is of accentuated importance for these – quite often new -
The installation of the so-called ‘wireless hot spots' at airports, hotels and
conference centres is also a considerable business potential for service providers.
Cisco’s wireless products, together with properly designed radio parameters, are
suitable for the development of both outdoor and indoor systems.
During the past ten years, one of the most significant developments in the field
of backbone network technology was the MPLS. The applications based on this technology,
such as the MPLS VPN or the ATOM, enable service providers to utilize their backbone
network capacities more effectively and so they can offer services with better
parameters for their customers.
The DWDM technology facilitates the transition of different wavelength laser
beams in one optical fibre. The utilization of the currently existing optical
network can be multiplied by means of this solution since 40-80 wavelengths can
be transmitted through one optical fibre at a speed of 2.5 Gbps – 10 Gbps per
channel. The current Synergon palette also covers the municipal and national level
The CWDM technology is more cost effective multiplexing solition but has a limitation
of 8 channels and maximum 4 Gbps per channel.
Synergon undertakes the entire process of design, planning and commissioning
from the product definition, supported by means of return calculations. Moreover,
we also undertake device and/or system level availability and operational support.
Among the domestic system integrators, Synergon has the largest number of and
most extensive references within the Telco and SP environment regarding implementation,
operation and management.
Synergon has built and supports the largest ATM and MPLS backbone networks (T-Com,
Invitel: Stratacom BPX, MGX), the largest ISP backbone network (NIIFI backbone
network: GSR 12416, C76K).
Our largest Telecommunication clinets are Invitel Hungary Zrt. and Vodafone Hungary
We also provide operational consultancy and availability for several ISPs.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Who purchases a service provider network?
Mostly, telecommunication service providers or institutes which have extended,
national level connections, operating as a kind of internal service provider.
What is the primary task of service provider networks?
To ensure a flexible and scalable basic network infrastructure, that serves the
current and anticipated future requirements in a cost effective and reliable manner.
The service provider supplies its diverse services, such as data transmission,
Internet, voice transmission, etc. through the network.
What requirements are usually posited to service provider networks?
Future-proof design, scalability and good manageability are important features.
The cost requirement of the devices to be placed at the user (CPE) is a highly
What type of applications run on a service provider network generally?
One group is business communication solutions including the traditional data
transmission services (leased line, frame-relay, ATM, LAN-bridge, etc. services).
The other group includes more modern IP based services: MPLS, VPN, Internet service,
