Magyar Telekom (Hungarian Telekom) as the largest nationwide incumbent network operator was one of our key industrial partner since the very beginning – the University has a long and successful partnership with Magyar Telekom. The first challenging research questions about estimating cost and optimizing deployment of optical access networks have arrived from Magyar Telekom to us, initiating all the related work.

We have been working together on next generation (optical) networks for years, and more recently, our group has started other network planning related R&D work with them, focusing now on novel access, transport and core network deployments and network evolution.
