Baku. Nijat Mustafayev – APA-Economics. Azerbaijan’s new mobile operator Azerfon (Nar MobileTM) is gearing up for the introduction of 3G technology services to subscribers.
“We are now testing 3G technology. It is planned to launch 3G services by the end of this year or next year. We are negotiating with the Ministry of Communications and Information Technologies. Our 3G services will be affordable for all subscribers,” the company told APA-Economics.
Azerfon services about 870 000 subscribers at present.
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.
Azerfon was licensed by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technologies of Azerbaijan Republic in December, 2005 to provide mobile services throughout the territory of Azerbaijan. Azerfon Company launched its commercial activities in 21st of March, 2007 under brand name Nar Mobile. The trademark Nar was created as a symbol of the relationship between Azerbaijan’s rich cultural heritage and modern life.
