The metropolitan network in Uherský Brod, which was built by GTS Novera (as of 1st. October 2010 GTS Czech) in cooperation with Extra NET, was launched in June 2007. The network interconnecting the Municipal administration buildings and agencies also allow the people in town to access Internet at public Internet access points (PIAPs). The network actually offers the use of 35 computers accessible to public, one Internet information kiosk and 14 WiFi hotspots situated in public buildings.

Project brought benefits

“Launching of the metropolitan network in our town made the communication between the municipal offices much simpler and, at the same time, resulted in cutting telecommunication costs. As part of the project we were also able to establish an Internet centre in the House of Culture where eight computers accessible to public were installed,” said the Mayor of Uherský Brod Ing. Ladislav Kryštof. “The new network is operated by the town itself, that is, by the Informatics Section of the Municipal Council. GTS Novera, which built the network, is our Internet access provider”, he added.

“It took not quite five months to build the metropolitan network in Uherský Brod,” said Tomáš Budník, Technical Division Manager for GTS Novera. “Apart from interconnecting municipal offices, the network also provides high-speed Internet access to people in town via computers accessible to public and in the Internet information kiosk. At selected points, including the points in suburban areas, the Internet can be accessed using WiFi wireless technology,” he added.

Grants provided assistance

The cost of building the network was CZK 14.162 million not including VAT. The project was jointly funded by grants from the EU (European Regional Development Fund covering 66.7 % of the costs) and the Czech Republic State Budget (10 % of the costs covered by grant from the Joint Regional Operation Fund).

Technical solution

The metropolitan network consist partly of optical cable system and partly of the wireless transmission systems. The optical cable network interconnects eleven locations while the wireless transmission network systems were installed in twenty locations. The Municipal distraction buildings and agencies are interconnected via network operating in the licensed 38 GHz and 3.5 GHz bands. Mainly to facilitate access and reduce costs, for connecting end users the network uses unlicensed 2.4 GHz band (known as ‘WiFi’). Public Internet access points are normally available in the entrance areas in schools, kindergartens and municipal agencies.
