Baku, Azerbaijan, March 7
By Huseyn Valiyev – Trend:
Azerbaijan and Iran will once again agree on procedure for using frequency resources on the border areas, a source in the Azerbaijani telecommunications market told Trend.
A protocol on the equal use of the frequency spectrum of mobile communications, as well as television and radio broadcasting is planned to be signed in mid 2018, after the parties hold monitoring of the used channels.
The agreement provides for regulating the use of the radio-frequency spectrum and reducing the likelihood of interference with radio electronic means on the border areas.
Earlier, the sides reached an agreement on the use of frequency resources of the GSM-band on the border areas. The parties signed a protocol on the equal use of 900 MHz and 1800 MHz frequency bands for GSM communications, which is aimed at eliminating frequency crossing cases, as well as ensuring the smooth functioning of mobile communications on the border areas.
The two countries use the same base stations and the same frequency resources, which leads to interference with each other. The agreement allows to regulate use of the radio-frequency spectrum, and significantly reduce the likelihood of interference with radio electronic means on the border areas. Azerbaijan has signed a similar agreement with Georgia and Russia.
