In the past two decades, the digital information flow played a more important
role both in private life and business, and the quantity and quality of available
data are even increasing. These opportunities open new perspectives and quality
of life for the users, e.g. arranging banking and municipal affairs via Internet,
e-learning, interactive TV-watching, VOD - Video on Demand, IPTV Internet Protocol
Television, VoIP - Voice over IP, etc. On the other hand, the inhabitants of disadvantaged
settlements - where the establishment of an appropriate network is unprofitable
according to the rate of return calculations of the Internet providers - will
lag behind in making use of the opportunities offered by the virtual world, i.e.
both individuals and businesses will suffer a handicap. This recognition was followed
by the applications financed by the European Union, e.g. no. GVOP 4.4.2 through
which economically disadvantaged small regions may submit applications for supporting
their wideband Internet access. These wideband networks may be implemented by
various transmission systems, and Synergon System Integrator Ltd is able to provide
an up-to-date solution for each of these systems.
The most widely used media are:
- microwave access, i.e. the wireless systems,
- ADSL accesses implemented through the traditional telephone network,
- internet established on the interactive cable television network,
- and, the state-of-the-art fibre to the home access.
Due to the many-sided applicability and cost-effectiveness of this system, the
CATV solutions implemented by us reached the greatest number, but the other options
have also been implemented.
The up-to-date „triple play” (telephone, data and one-way video signal transmission)
cable television networks are based on connections where coax and optical cables
used together and their widely used abbreviation is HFC (Hybrid Fiber Coax). With
advances in technology the list of services can be expanded by mobile phone service,
„quad play”, and a number of options (remote supervision, outdoor surveillance
systems). The IP-based technology makes interchangeability and integrability between
various telecommunication services feasible. Accordingly, modern and high-performance
CATV networks provide cost-effective and lasting infrastructure for wideband applications
requested in the applications for support. By virtue of Act I of 1996, in Hungary
only cable television networks suitable for up-to-date data transmission may be
operated as of 1 January 2003. Their planning and implementation demand a shift
in attitudes regarding construction of networks.
Making use of the experience we gained in planning, and the large number of our
partners, we are able to plan up-to-date HFC, Wireless or purely optical solutions
with a short deadline in every region of the country. By serving our Client’s
demands and opportunities, our plans offer high-level technology by looking into
In our cable solutions, subject to ground conditions, cost-effectiveness and
rate of return considerations; we implement routes with substructure, patch cables
and pole line owned by our client alone or together with the local power provider.
With these solutions we carry out the connection of the settlements or the entire
system to the national Internet core network by high-capacity optical connections.
Within the settlements we plan optical core networks and coaxial network to cover
the service area. Upon request we combine them with wireless technologies as well.
After a preliminary conciliation, we work out the technical concepts. According
to the version approved by our client, we prepare the route plans and conciliate
them with the owners (individuals, local governments, etc.), public utility companies
(road, water, gas telecommunication and power providers, etc.) and specialised
authorities (Cultural Heritage, Environmental Protection, Water Management, Mining
Office, National Defence, VÁTI, etc.).
Based on the route plans conciliated, we prepare the system technology plans
then have the plans approved. This process is closed by obtaining a legally binding
NHHH building permit.
Implementation, project management
The appropriate project management is one of the most important pillars of the
implementation, because continuous contact should be maintained with the Client,
the specialised authorities, public utility companies, subcontractors, monitoring
organizations and suppliers.
The would-be project manager participates in the project from the preparation
of the offer. He participates in the elaboration of the contract, the preparation
and finalization of the document establishing the project. During the planning
and licensing procedure, he takes measures to ensure materials necessary for implementation.
We continuously monitor the progress of the project and inform the Client about
it during cooperation negotiations. We keep records that follow the progress of
the project, and keep and update the schedule. Our company provides a responsible
technical manager for the implementation period of the project. Upon request,
we undertake to perform technical supervision and tasks of external experts as
Project settlement and controlling
In the case of projects supported by EU, we prepare the project progress reports.
We participate in managing possible bank loans and actualizing cash flow plans
of the associations or local governments which obtained some support.
We provide support for the mandatory settlement tasks and the inspections of
the directing and monitoring authorities and the market supervision authority
(IT kht, MAG ZRt.)
The follow-up of the project is also important for us and upon request we give
advice and guidelines to the Client regarding the operating tasks once the project
has been closed.
The experience of our colleagues provides a significant value added to the implementation
of the project.
- because Synergon’s EU sales and tender writing teams can effectively assist organizations
in writing tenders
- because with the help of our highly qualified experts, Synergon alone is able
to give a comprehensive solution
- because Synergon is a reliable partner with sufficient capital
- because our experts and 24 hour Call-Center provides a reliable background for
