Azercell Telecom LLC, Azerbaijan’s mobile operator, is preparing to launch Voice over Long-Term Evolution (VoLTE) service, Vahid Mursaliyev, the company’s president, said Feb. 28 in Baku at a press conference on the company’s activity last year.

He said that the new technology has already been tested.

“Ericsson company is the provider of equipment for the deployment of the service,” Mursaliyev said

Azercell is the first operator which tested the VoLTE service in the country. VoLTE technology makes it possible to make voice calls through the LTE network, as well as use the services of HD voice and video calls.

In 2017, the company installed new 4G stations in Baku and Absheron peninsula, as well as in Ganja, Barda, Shamkir and Lankaran.
