Wireless part of the product is realized on the EV-DO (Evolution-Data Optimized) which is the most progressive third generation wireless data transmission technology among available in Russia.

In Russia EV-DO speeds are provided by CDMA network of Sky Link Company that has become a host carrier within the “3G Office” solution.
“Is CDMA network with EV-DO technology third generation network or not? It is philosophic question, — notes Alexandr Krupnov, Informcommunication Union President. — There are global standards that determine what 3G network is, but they still have not ratified in Russia. Thus this theme should be accounted in the frame of foremost services rendering which nobody has”.

Working upon the MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) model, Gars Telecom has advance experience in products realization based on the fixed and mobile communications integration.

However, “GSM standard is out of date, regulator and ‘The Big Three’ carriers are not interested in MVNO development. And the number of the deterrents is very high that to develop solutions upon the GSM standard has become strategically ineffectively — reports Pavel Gorenkov, Gars Telecom CEO. — At the same time, satisfying demands of clients in data transmission speed and quality, we have come into conclusion that only third generation technologies will allow offering market an adequate solution. Fortunately, we came to mutual understanding with our partner company Sky Link.
