ip.access deploys picocells in Azerbaijan airport

UK-based ip.access has teamed up with Azerfon to deploy picocells in Baku’s Heydar Aliyev International Airport in Azerbaijan and also onto Azal Airlines’ aircraft operating from the capital’s airport.

Nar Mobile has now become the first mobile company in Azerbaijan to offer in-flight mobile communication services - on board of the Azerbaijan Airlines fleet.

The partnership will now allow passengers flying to or from Baku on Azal flights – to be able to make and receive calls, send SMS and surf the internet from their own mobile phones using the on board Nar Mobile network.

Timucin Kutar, Azerfon’s CTO said: “Heydar Aliyev airport is one of the busiest international airports in the region and its position makes it a popular locale for transferring passengers.”

“By quickly delivering this project, ip.access will help us provide in-flight GSM coverage for Voice, SMS and Data Access for some million passengers while they are in the air journey with Azal’s aircrafts,” he added.

GaN’s Ground-Floor Opportunity
The electronics industry has a major role to play in helping to save energy, by enabling better equipment and new ways of working and living that that are more efficient and environmentally friendly. Maintaining the pace of technological progress is key, but improvements become both smaller and harder to achieve as each technology matures. We can see this trend in the development of power semiconductors, as device designers seek more complex and expensive ways to reduce switching energy and RDS(ON) against silicon’s natural limitations.
