The network of the future

Magyar Telekom aims for innovation

Our company considers it a major objective and an important element of our daily job to actively keep track of innovation trends, technologies and solutions that provide new opportunities, as well as to offer such solutions to our customers so that we can embark on a journey to the future together.

On this note, we are among the first telecommunications companies in Hungary to offer IPv6 (the future’s network addressing form) technology based solutions both to our residential customers and business partners. From the fall of 2009 IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) based solutions became available for testing, whereby the already well known functions provide even better customer experience for our clients.

Renewable services

IPv6 technology extends already existing services with new, unprecedented functions, speed, and level of security:

  • Internet access – safer browsing, more reliable networks
  • VPN service – safer data transmission
  • Peering service – larger data packages, more stable connection
  • Content service – novel solutions
  • Hosting service (web, server) – more reliable data transmission, safer environment
  • DNS service and domain registration – „quasi-fixed” address space

More partners, more technologies

We make the features of IPv6 network addressing available for small and medium enterprises, large businesses and residential customers alike, in the introductory phase on traditional fixed (ADSL) and optical technology, using Windows Vista/7 or Unix/Linux operating systems. In the near future, we intend to roll out our newest technology to our cable television and mobile network.

Preparations

The quality provision and introduction of this new technology was preceded by a long process of preparation. After working out the concept, first laboratory tests, then, during spring 2009, live operation tests were performed, based on which, in the fall of 2009, we started to upgrade our live systems to fully support the new technology. This work shall continue until support for the new protocol is introduced in all network segments.

Pilot phase from 2009

For the seamless introduction of IPv6 technology and to test our technical readiness under live operational circumstances, we need help from our customers to provide us with feedback and requirements, that will later help us develop the commercial service.

World IPv6 Day

Magyar Telekom joined the World IPv6 Day (link) created on the 8th of June 2011 by the biggest content providers (Google, Facebook, Yahoo) and coordinated by the Internet Society. From that point forward, Magyar Telekom made a part of its own and its subsidiaries websites available through IPv6 ; additionally ensuring connection for hosted servers through the new network protocol.

What does IPv6 offer?

Thanks to the new network addressing solution, IPv4 addressing limitations experienced earlier can be almost completely eliminated:

  • All of our clients and network endpoints will be able to access an IP address range containing a sufficient number of IP addresses.
  • We can provide a public IP address range for our customers’ home or business networks (LAN), allowing for globally assigning unique IP addresses to hundreds of sub-networks and connected devices.
  • The traditional dynamic addressing method will be replaced by „quasi fixed” addressing, meaning that the allocated address (prefix) would be changed only very rarely (e.g. network reconstruction).

Moreover, the practical user level applications are extended with new functions, such as:

  • Built in support for IPsec encryption
  • Increased  maximum size for data packages, which results in faster data transmission (peer-to-peer, VideoLAN, Windows Media Player)
  • More efficient web search (Google over IPv6)
