Baku. Ilhama Isabalayeva – APA-Economics. Azerbaijan will introduce the third-generation mobile phone standards and technology by the end of this year, said Iltimas Mammadov, Azerbaijan’s Deputy Minister of Communications and Information Technologies.
He added that there will soon be a decision to issue license for 3G and other modern communications services.
At present there are 3 GSM and 1 CDMA operators in the country.
International Mobile Telecommunications-2000 (IMT-2000) is the global standard for third generation wireless communications as defined by the International Telecommunication Union.
The technology behind 3G makes cellular networks more efficient and powerful, opening up a world of new possibilities.
Network operators & telecommunications service providers are embracing the recently adopted global third generation wireless standards in order to cater to emerging user demands and to offer new services to their customers. 3G wireless technology represents a shift from voice-centric services to multimedia-oriented like video, voice and data. The most interesting & useful aspect of 3G wireless technology is its ability to unify existing cellular standards such as GSM, CDMA and TDMA.
The ITU recommendations for the IMT2000 standard for next-generation services are envisaged at a data rate of 2Mbit/s through the 2GHz band as set aside in most country.
