Internet for Mazovia
More than 1.2 million people will gain broadband internet access following the construction of 3.7 thousand kilometers of fiber-optic lines under the “Internet for Mazovia” project.
This task has been executed by the Polish-Korean consortium, with the participation of Asseco. The company was responsible for the installation of active networking equipment as well as for the implementation of software to support the operator’s activities (the network passporting system as well as the business support system, including CRM, order management and billing). The total project cost amounted to nearly PLN 450 million (gross).
The aim of the project was to eliminate the so-called white spots, i.e. places with limited internet access, from the Mazovian Province map. Currently, ICT infrastructure has been brought to all villages.
“From now on telecom operators will be able to offer their services even in places which used to be unprofitable,” said Radosław Semkło, Director of the Telecommunications and Media Division, Asseco Poland S.A. “As a result, all the institutions and companies, as well as over 95 percent of Mazovia residents will have high-speed internet access,” he added.
Asseco was responsible for the supply and installation of active networking equipment as well as for the implementation of software to support such devices. The company will also provide maintenance services for the supplied infrastructure over a period of five years. Moreover, Asseco delivered, installed and configured the Network Passporting System. The work performed by Asseco was worth PLN 60 million (gross).
“Our participation in this project and long-term cooperation with the telecommunications sector gave us a lot of valuable experience that helped us develop a new software solution,” said Radosław Semkło, Director of the Telecommunications and Media Division, Asseco Poland S.A.
The company has developed a software solution called Asseco Convergent Services Environment (ACSE). It is a system designed to support the management, sales and billing of converged services, and is dedicated to all broadband network operators in Poland. The “Internet for Mazovia” project is now the reference user of this system.
