Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 20
By Huseyn Veliyev - Trend:
Azerbaijan and Iran have agreed on the procedure of equal use of radio frequency resources in the border areas, a source in the telecommunications market of Azerbaijan told Trend.
The agreement provides for the balanced use of the radio frequency spectrum and the reduction of the likelihood of interference by radioelectronic means, and this will be certified by the relevant protocol.
Earlier, the two countries signed a protocol on equal use of frequency spectrum for GSM communication, which is aimed at ensuring the normal functioning of mobile communication in the border areas.
The two countries use the same base stations and the same frequency resources, which creates interference with each other. The agreement makes it possible to streamline the use of the radio frequency spectrum, as well as significantly reduce the likelihood of interference by radioelectronic means in the border areas. Azerbaijan has signed similar agreements with Georgia and Russia.
