    BashNet Network:
history and facts


The creation of the Republican
Data Transmission Network BashNet began about five years ago
    back, the global model served as a model for it
    Sprint network. Performed network deployment work
    ICC "Express", he also became
    telecommunications operator. Initially
    the BashNet network was built using
    Sprint equipment, in particular, its core is
    112-port TP48 backbone switch.


    Gradually revealed the inherent
    disadvantages of the equipment: private implementation
of the frame relay protocol, functional
    restrictions, high price, etc. Race Communications Company,
    specializing in global technologies
    networks, offered to use as
    trunk devices are multiprotocol
    routers from Motorola, and as
    terminal adapters - Eicon products
    Technology. Cooperation between Express and Race
    allowed to deploy the FR-network of the republican


    Race has developed a project, the implementation of which
    engineers of "Express" were engaged. The
qualification of the latter is indicated at least by the fact that
    they independently found a way to organize
a virtual channel for connecting the equipment
    Sprint, passing through Motorola routers, is
a possibility, initially not included in this hardware


    In 1995, the integration of global
telecommunications operators Sprint, Deutsche Telekom and France Telecom led to
    to create an even more extensive Global One network. How
    as a result, the range of services has also expanded,
    provided by the ICC "Express".


    Today, the BashNet network covers 59 district centers
of Bashkiria. Most trunk channels
allow you to transmit data at a speed of 28.8
    Kbit/s. Connection with the Moscow node of the Global Net network

    telegraph, resells the services of the Global One network,
    sets up a direct Ufa or Moscow
phone with a fixed monthly tariff with
an unlimited number of incoming and outgoing calls
    calls, etc.


    Interesting fact: in Bashkiria, all banking
    money transfer operations are performed during
    one day, as required by the Presidential decree
    republics. Without the BashNet network, it would be impossible to execute the decree
