Previously, Delta Telecom launched the IP/MPLS (InternetProtocol/Multi-Protocol Label Switching) multi-service network for the state bodies of Azerbaijan.
IP/MPLS network which was created in the AzStateNet network by order of the Special State Protection Service (SSPS) of Azerbaijan is designed to facilitate the exchange of information between government bodies and become one of the important stages in the construction of e-government, which is implemented under the Electronic Azerbaijan state programme.
The necessary conditions have been created for connecting all state bodies of Azerbaijan to this network including their regional offices. The infrastructure allows connecting government bodies to corporate networks, as well as significantly improving the quality and reliability of exchange of information and electronic documents between them. As part of this project, thousands of Ethernet-ports over IP/MPLS network were commissioned under SSPS supervision.
