“Digital Silk Way” project presented at “Turkmentel 2022”


The “Digital Silk Way” project, which envisages the formation of a digital telecommunications corridor connecting Europe with Central and South Asia, was presented at “Turkmentel 2022” – Turkmenistan ICT Conference held on November 10 and 11 in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan.

The conference included in-depth discussions and presentations on topics such as digitization, unified communication, satellite technologies and cybersecurity.

Fuad Allahverdiyev, chairman of the board of directors of AzerTelecom, spoke during the conference’s “Connectivity” panel. He spoke about the implementation of the fiber optic cable line (Trans-Caspian Fiber Optic Cable Line) on the Azerbaijan-Turkmenistan route through the bottom of the Caspian Sea, which is the Asian segment of the project “Digital Silk Way” implemented by Azer Telecom.

Underlining the great international interest in the project, Fuad Allahverdiyev noted that the parties to the project (AzerTelecom and Turkmentelecom) have started work on establishing a joint venture for the realization of the seabed infrastructure project.

Mr. Allahverdiyev also added that the implementation of the project will make a substantial contribution to the development of the telecommunications sector of Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan, and the telecommunications ecosystem in the region in general. The cable line between the geographical points of Siyazan in Azerbaijan and Turkmenbashi in Turkmenistan will form the shortest and fastest digital data transmission corridor between Europe and South Asia.

AzerTelecom is the leading wholesale telecommunications operator in Azerbaijan. The company is part of the international group of companies “NEQSOL Holding” operating in various fields and countries.
