BudaPart: Establishing network coverage in Budapest’s newest city quarter

In the newest quarter of Budapest, there are residential properties, offices, common spaces, shops, and a hotel. Based on the developer's expectations, 25,000-30,000 people will live and work here by 2030. As nowadays both residential and business life expect adequate network and mobile coverage, it was particularly important to establish the possibility of network connectivity.  

BudaPart recognized this demand and transformed it into an expectation related to the development at an early stage. The requirement was to build a system that provides mobile network-independent outdoor and indoor coverage. The developer chose CETIN Hungary Zrt. because they had already demonstrated their suitability in several large-scale network deployment projects.  

Business problem: 
The BudaPart project required meeting the high-level demands of the residents and ensuring adequate network connectivity. However, executing such a large-scale project could pose various challenges and unexpected obstacles.  
In the first phase of the project, a multi-operator DAS and Macrosystem were implemented, allowing all telecommunication service providers in Hungary to connect. This ensured the comfort of the 30,000 residents. During the network deployment, it was crucial to consider the simultaneous presence of various user needs in the area, as the city quarter included not only residences but also offices, shops, communal spaces, and a hotel. Therefore, CETIN Hungary established a single-point solution to streamline operations for all parties involved.  
Where CETIN Hungary can help: 
The main lesson from the project is that effective planning and time coordination among stakeholders benefited the project's execution. Simultaneous planning of the telecommunications network and weak current design were crucial to the success of the project. With CETIN Hungary's assistance, the city quarter was built, ensuring value creation and a positive end-user experience.
