Broadband Internet development Project in Azerbaijan to be adopted by month end

Jan 12, 2013 (Trend News Agency - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- Approval of the project on development of broadband Internet in Azerbaijan is expected by the end of the month, Aztelekom Production Association (PO) of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technologies of Azerbaijan told Trend on Friday.

The document is currently being finalized by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, and the final cost of the project will be determined upon its approval.

291 million manat is allocated from the State Oil Fund budget for 2013 for implementation of this project that will contribute to expansion of broadband infrastructure and deployment of multimedia services in regions of Azerbaijan on its base.

Gradual transfer of the regional telecommunications operator nodes to Next Generation Network (NGN), alternative routing of optical telecommunication lines and construction of high-speed IP-based lines of MPLS networks over DWDM networks are considered within the project. The necessary conditions for the transport of traffic from private providers will also be provided.

The possibility of using GPON technology to bring the optical lines to the end users in large cities is under consideration. The possibility of application of CDMA 1x EV-DO and WiMAX standards for provision of broadband services coverage for people living in remote communities is also being considered.

To date, about two thousand kilometers of fiber-optic communication lines have been laid across the regions of Azerbaijan within the development project for broadband Internet, of which 570 kilometers were laid by commercial providers.
