Students of Gyumri “Photon” college visit VivaCell-MTS solar base station

VivaCell-MTS specialists have held master classes on the territories of two base stations of the Company operating by solar electric supply sources, located along the Yerevan-Gyumri section of interstate highway.

The “Photon” college in Gyumri is one of the high schools, which are included in the PTC experimental study program and runs the “Basics of Telecommunications” subject with the support of VivaCell-MTS.

Company’s specialists regularly organize professional trainings for teachers of the subject and students. To solidify the theoretical knowledge and to share practical skills, the specialists organize tours after classroom sessions, also to locations of base station.

The base stations operating along the Mastara-Maralik motorway are special: their supply of electricity comes from solar batteries. This is a perfect solution especially for locations with rarely populated areas, where electricty supply is a problem. Using solar supply sources of electricity for VivaCell-MTS base stations reduces the consumption of electric power and the infrastructure maintenance expenses.

“In the age of technological development an hour equals a second. Every day brings about new demands. We need to be always ready for new solutions, which are based on innovation, demand, responsibility, but never consumerism. These stations powered by solar energy are a result of such an attitude. Whatever you get with the course is based on more than ten year experience of a leading telecommunications company. Appreciate it, never stop enhancing your mind and be responsible,” said VivaCell-MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian.

To remind, according to the quadrilateral memorandum (signed by RA Ministry of Education and Science, “Synopsys Armenia”, VivaCell-MTS, and “Unicomp”) the “Basics of Communication” has been included in the curricula of Gyumri “Photon”, Yerevan “Quantum” colleges, physics and mathematics school after Artashes Shahinyan, and mathematics and natural sciences school in Vanadzor, as well as the high schools under NPUA in Yerevan. Five more high schools will be involved in the program starting from 2018.
