Azeri mobile operator Bakcell has chosen to deploy PT’s SEGway Number Portability Solution for its network in Baku, in line with the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology’s (MCIT’s) requirement for service providers to make mobile number portability (MNP) available to subscribers this year. SEGway’s carrier-grade IP backbone provides a platform for seamless growth and the addition of revenue-generating features as networks evolve to next generation. ‘We faced an enormous challenge of selecting a vendor, testing, and turning up MNP within a very short window of time, and without impact to our network,’ commented Jordan Rashev, Bakcell’s head of Network Management Centre, adding: ‘We were confident that PT would deliver the quality we are accustomed to and meet our deadline. We are extremely pleased with their product and service.’
