DBA Group has obtained a 300 thousand Euro contract from the Ministry of Transport, Telecommunications and High Technologies of Azerbaijan for advisory services on the construction of the fiber optic network in the capital, Baku, to be implemented in 2019. In the first few months of 2018, the Azerbaijani Ministry had commissioned DBA Group to carry out an audit of the procedures and processes used to create the FTTH (Fiber to the Home) networks with the GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network) technology.
Having appreciated the work performed by DBA during the audit, the Azerbaijani Ministry decided to assign DBA Group a contract for consultancy services aimed at identifying areas for improvement and intervention in the construction process and supporting the client to make the Azerbaijani ultra broad band system performing and efficient. The DBA team will also assess the technical regulations applicable to the civil design of the country’s networks, which date back to the 1980s and 1990s, and to propose changes and improvements to align the Azerbaijani standards to the European standards. The Azerbaijani Ministry has also entrusted DBA Group with a business consultancy activity to identify the most suitable areas for installing fiber optic connections and for better planning the coverage process.
This new order is the result of the excellent relations that DBA Group has developed with Azerbaijan, a country where DBA Group has been present since 2014. In particular, the company from Treviso is active in the port of Baku, where it has already designed and installed Port- Line, a telematic platform that allows complete automation of the movement of goods in transit at the ports. For the Port Authority of Baku in Alat, DBA Group has designed the administrative offices and the Passenger Terminal
