LAN Services AG...
  • LAN Services is a regional carrier who operates in the region between Biel, Berne and Olten.
  • Upstream connectivity is currently provided by Cable&Wireless (AS1273), Sunrise (AS6730) and IP-Plus (AS3303) with a cumulative bandwidth of 24 Mbit/s.
  • Connections between our nodes are mostly built on Besonet ATM backbone. (Bern Solothurn Netz AG). Most Besonet shareholders are also QuickLine partners.
  • Besonet has built a dark fibre network in their coverage area.
  • Transport network for tv/radio signals, video, voice and data.
  • QuickLine is a partnership model from LAN Services in cooperation with several cable operators to provide internet access over cable.

major layer 1 2 issues
Major layer 1 / 2 issues
  • Not all cable plants are already upgraded to support 2-way communications.
  • Inhouse installations are often in a catastrophic state.
  • Customers who are making their own HF installations.
  • Grounding problems
  • S-CDMA and DOCSIS are not compatible(Note: The DOCSIS 2.0 standard will take parts of both protocols and provide backward compatibility)
and what we our partners do
... and what we/our partners do!
  • Fast 2-way upgrade of all remaining 1-way cable plants
  • Improving the stability of the cable plants
  • Adding filters for „bad“ homes
  • Adding filters to avoid grounding problems
  • Moving the upstream channels over 30 MHz so most of the ingress issues will go away.
  • Adding (strong!?) regulations which homes can and which cannot connected without modifications to the 2-way cable plant.
major layer 3 issues
Major layer 3 issues...
  • Bandwidth usage!!!!
  • Wrong configuration of customer end devices (most customers dosen‘t have any know-how about networking).
  • Security („Script kiddies“ playing with tools like back orifice, ...)
  • Delay sensitive traffic like online gaming
and what we do
... and what we do!
  • Adding more upstream bandwidth
  • Finding the best way to secure... a.) our customersb.) our network and equipementc.) the outside world
  • Strict handling of our AUP when issues with our customers occurs.
  • QoS enhancements to avoid problems with delay sensitive traffic
further developement
Further developement
  • Connecting new QuickLine partners to our network.
  • Few partners needed a second CMTS which will deployed on top of the Cisco uBR plattform.
  • Replacing remaining leased lines with dark fibre connections provided trough our cable partners.
  • Connecting AS-LAN to TIX
  • Improving connectivity to other cable internet providers trough direct peerings.
  • MPLS
  • Trials of new services like video on demand, ...
