State-owned cellco AzTelekom has completed a pilot project in the Shemakha region as part of the E-Azerbaijan project. The project involved the building of a next generation network (NGN) linking 23 village centres with an automatic telephone exchange in the regional city. In a statement, AzTelekom said, ‘…We have built communications networks conforming to the latest requirements and [able to support] such services as IP TV, VoIP, triple-play and other multimedia service. Overall capacity of the new network [in the] 23 villages of Shemakha region [is] 20,000 numbers. The project was realised as a mini model of E-Azerbaijan.’

The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT), which operates AzTelekom on behalf of the state, intends to implement similar projects in other regions of the country.
