Azerbaijan switches to new-gen communication technology

Aztelekom, the national communications operator of the Republic of Azerbaijan, has updated stations of the Alcatel 1000 S-12 type and switched to the IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) technology meeting modern standards to ensure high-quality international and long-distance phone communications.

According to the Ministry of Transport, Communications and High Technologies the new systems have been installed and tested in Baku and Yevlakh as part of a modernisation programme begun in 2019.

During the past period, new stations have been installed and successfully tested in Baku and Yevlakh regions. The new stations have already been fully commissioned.

"Over the years, new stations have been successfully installed and tested in Baku and the Yevlakh district, after which they were commissioned," the ministry added. “The transition to IMS technology will allow LLC subscribers to use better quality telephone services.”

According to the local media reports, the new generation equipment is being installed and projects are being implemented in accordance with the country's digital transformation policy for citizens to use a stable, secure, and high-quality information and telecommunication network in districts, settlements, and villages.
