According to the rating of CNews Telecom 2013, OJSC "MTT" is the 7th largest telecommunications operator in Russia. The company is in the lead in traditional market segments, such as traffic transit, at the same time introducing innovative and successful services to the market, such as VoIP telephony for individuals and corporate clients, intelligent communication services, IPX services, etc.
In 2003, MTT was joined by a major communications operator in St. Petersburg, Neva Line, and the company began providing Russian operators with GPRS-roaming services.
On October 31, 2014, OJSC "MTT" celebrated its 20th anniversary. This is an important and memorable year for the company, during which a number of breakthrough changes occurred related to entering foreign markets and opening up new business lines, with the continued positive growth dynamics.
The key event in 2014 was the launch of the mobile operator MTT, Russia's first full-MVNO federal project under the Aiva Mobile brand in partnership with Mobile TeleSystems OJSC (MTS). The target audience of Aiva Mobile is the ethnic communities of post-Soviet countries, so Tajikistan became the first country in which the new operator was put into commercial operation. Aiva Mobile's feature is the use of two active numbers simultaneously - Russian and Tajik on one SIM card, on any of which, regardless of the location of the subscriber, you can receive calls.
MTT concluded an important agreement in LTE-roaming with the German company SAP. This agreement underscored the determination of both participants of the telecommunications market to expand the community of LTE roaming operators in order to provide mobile subscribers with a continuous global roaming coverage.
The year of 2013 became one of the most important for MTT OJSC from the history of the company, both in terms of forming the business structure, and in relation to work in new and developing markets. In 2013, the structure of the MTT Group was formed, and the managing company MTT Group was also established. The main objectives of MTT Group were to increase the efficiency of the business and the quality of management of the activities of the same group of subsidiaries and control over the performance of the operating indicators of the group companies. The key assets of MTT Group were OJSC Interregional TransitTelecom, Audiootelecom, Start Telecom, Digitalprom, MTT Oy, MTT Innovations. At the end of 2013, the group was joined by Synterra Media.

During 2012, direct-dial numbers of Yekaterinburg, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Rostov-on-Don, Novosibirsk and other major Russian cities were added. MTT Business also actively developed abroad. It covered direct-dial numbers of Finland, all the Baltic countries, Austria, Ukraine, USA and Germany.
2011 was one of the most significant and important years for MTT JSC. That year a comprehensive upgrade of MTT’s owned nationwide network took place; new products and services based on the newest technologies were launched; and MTT Group started to emerge.
During 2011, MTT’s overall investments in the upgrade of the transit network core totaled more than 100 million roubles. A long-term agreement for the modernization of the transit network core based on Huawei equipment was signed with Angstrem Non-governmental Organisation. Huawei equipment lets MTT render a full range of traffic transit services using high-speed IP links. Despite the fact that the network was in the process of migrating from TDM to IP and significant changes made in the network topology, the company was still able to cooperate with counteragents in terms of link switching, traffic transit and signalling.
In 2011, Evgeny Sergeevich Vasilyev became the general director of OJSC "MTT".
2010 was the year when MTT JSC consistently expanded its offering for subscribers and customers and improved the existing products. In the first half of 2010, several material agreements were signed to broaden the range of available methods to pay for the company’s services in different regions of Russia and practically in all significant mobile shop chains from Kaliningrad to Vladivostok. For the owners of MTT Telecom Cards, a loyalty program with Mnogo.ru loyalty card was launched; also, a co-branding project was launched in cooperation with S7. MTT Telecom Cards featuring the airline’s brand colours were sold in all cities covered by the routes of this large-scale Russian airline.
In 2009, MTT launched a number of new services for corporate and retail customers; the company was also focused on international cooperation; significant work was done within improving the company’s network. A new version of the Subscriber Portal for private users of virtual cards and domestic and international long-distance communication services was launched. In 2009, a new agreement with Svyaznoy, one of the largest mobile shop chains, was signed, in accordance with which the shops were able to accept payments for MTT’s long-distance communication services throughout Russia without additional fees. On the B2C market, a new application called MTTalk for mobile devices was launched, thanks to which end users were able to make domestic and international long-distance calls through MTT’s network using MTT Telecom Card account.
In 2008, MTT implemented international WLAN roaming in Russia thanks to a cooperation agreement signed with the operator WeRoam. Also, the same year MTT signed a cooperation agreement with IDT, the largest multi-national telecom operator, which included a direct interconnection of the networks and cooperation in the field of international telecom services. The company also extended its international network to include neighbouring countries, namely Georgia (Telecom Georgia) and Belarus.
At the end of 2008 Viktor Bertyakov was appointed to the post of the company's general director.
By 2007, MTT had become a recognized and remarkable player on the international telecom market. The operator serviced more than half of Russian mobile operators’ traffic going to international destinations and had well-established relationships with the world’s largest operators.
In 2007, MTT JSC signed agreements with the Romanian national operator Romtelecom and with AT&T, the largest American operator. The same year, MTT and the French company France Telecom implemented the interconnection of their networks in Frankfurt. In 2007, MTT JSC started to actively develop cooperation with the governmental sector while simultaneously expanding its geographical coverage in various counties.
The most important event in the telecom sector in 2006 was the de-monopolization of the long-distance communication in the Russian Federation, as a result of which subscribers were able to choose an operator when making domestic and international long-distance calls.
In 2006, MTT JSC announced the acquisition of AFK Systema’s 66% stake in the international telecom operator WaveCrest Group Enterprises Limited, which made the company a key Russian telecom operator providing international voice traffic transit service on mobile and fixed-line networks abroad.
In 2005, MTT was mainly focused on expanding its own network throughout Russia. 44 local switching centres were launched that year; MTT was able to connect regional operators to MTT’s transit network in all Russian regions. That year the nationwide network infrastructure was completed. The network was built based on state-of-the-art equipment that facilitated the addition of new services. In 2005, all mobile operators connected their networks to MTT.
In 2005, WLAN roaming (roaming in Wi-Fi networks) an internationally popular service with great potential, was launched. The organizational and technical interaction between operators within this service was tested within a pilot area organized by MTT together with KomStar-United Telesystems, VympelCom, PeterStar and RTKOMM.
By its 10th anniversary, Multiregional TransitTelecom stands on the cusp of broad opportunities in the telecommunications sector, which will be based on meeting the needs of the information community. First of all, these opportunities are connected with an extensive growth of Russia’s economy and the fact that the country had managed to double its GDP. The new level of the industrial development will require an advanced infrastructure to transmit information both nationwide and abroad. The content of this information will change as well. In addition to voice traffic, data traffic will increase as well, which will require expanded capacities of the high-speed communication links and advanced distribution systems based on the principles of software-controlled new-generation networks.ого поколения.
MTT started the year 2003 by connecting to its transit network the 100th operator, DagTelecom, a GSM-900 mobile operator in Dagestan Republic, on 8 January.
A week later, i.e. on 15 January, MTT announced the acquisition of Neva Line, a St. Petersburg telecom operator. The local St. Petersburg operator had to be purchased due to a significant extension of MTT’s operations in the North-West of Russia. Later in February, the first St. Petersburg mobile operator to be connected to MTT’s local switching centre was St. Petersburg Telecom JSC. However, this company’s didn’t stay the only operator connected to MTT’s local switching centre long: on 11 March 2003 the connection of VympelCom’s St. Petersburg subnet to MTT through this local centre was announced. The fact that this large-scale Russian mobile operator was interested in this local switching centre confirmed that establishing local switching centres was the right strategy for MTT.
On 21 March 2002, the first regional access node of the common transit telecom network was launched in St. Petersburg. The node is deployed at the facilities of the automated long-distance telephone station of Petersburg City Telephone Network. On 27 March 2002, the first operator, Telecom XXI, a subsidiary of MTS offering mobile telecom service based on GSM-900/1800 in the North-West of Russia, connected to the first regional access code. At the same time, Interregional TransitTelecom launched access nodes in Kaliningrad and Krasnodar in the pilot mode.
In 2001 the Russian mobile market marked the 10th anniversary of its emergence. The anniversary year became a landmark in the history of the entire mobile industry in Russia. By late 2001 the Russian mobile market had become second largest in Central and Eastern Europe.
It is generally believed that 2000 saw a real boom in mobile communication. In late 1999 the number of subscribers did not exceed 1.4 million, but by late 2000 it had soared to 3.26 million, which constitutes a 180% increase. 180 mobile providers offered their services to 3263 million clients across Russia, runs the report of the Russian Ministry for Communications. GSM networks' growth accounted for the rapid increase. GSM providers launched a "purchasing" campaign, spending about $80 per new customer. In 2000 the number of subscribers increased by 287% and 130% for MTS and VympelCom respectively. The subscriber base of SMARTS JSC, which brought together 9 GSM operators in the Volga Region, included 91 thousand people. The growth rate of SMS traffic in Russia equalled the global growth rate. The first tests of WAP-technologies were carried out. In early 2000 MTT successfully completed the transition from terminal switches to tandem switching centres (TCS). Thus, Multiregional TransitTelecom created a system which was able to simultaneously process voice data and signalling data of various mobile standards. It, therefore, managed to bring together remote local networks to create a single infrastructure.
1999 saw the transition from DAMPS/AMPS, which had earlier dominated the Russian market, to GSM networks, with the majority of new subscribers opting for GSM operators. One cannot claim that GSM operators rushed to join MTT’s transit network. Out of 65 operators which started to employ the MTT transfer traffic there were only 24 GSM operators. The transit network was generally believed to have been created for NMT, the already outdated standard. The functionality of GSM allows providers to grow independently and connect with each other directly. However, gradually they gained deeper understanding that the development prospects for the company are limited and bound to the region, and cooperation across the Russian Federation is a very complex and expensive task.
In 1998 most mobile phone users dwelt in Moscow and St. Petersburg, besides among the customers there were numerous foreigners residing and working in Russia, who were accustomed to using mobile services back home.The financial crisis, which hit Russia on 17 August 1998, radically transformed the Russian mobile telecom market. Sotovik, the information-analytical agency, reported the average loss of 20% in the number of subscribers, and in some regions the figure reached 50%.
In 1997 & nbsp; the official recognition of the transit network as an international instrument has emerged. January 17, 1997 & nbsp; in Moscow at a meeting of the heads of government of the CIS countries, an Agreement on cooperation in the development and use of cellular mobile communication systems was signed. In this document, the interpretation and definition of the term "transit network" is given: "A system providing the transmission of information through communication channels from one state to another through intermediate countries."
In April 1997 & nbsp; two more transit nodes of MTT company were put into operation - in Novosibirsk and Samara.
In 1996, the Ministry of Communications of the Russian Federation prepared the General Scheme for the establishment and phased development of federal public radio networks of public use of Russia for NMT-450 standards, approved by the decision of the Board of the Ministry of Communications of the Russian Federation. In addition, OJSC Giprosvyaz jointly with MTT specialists prepared the Project for the creation and development of the transit network of the Russian Federation. In the future MTT network and its interaction with mobile operators developed on the provisions of these documents.
The year 1995 was marked by the unification of cellular communication networks with the help of Interregional Transit Telecom. In 1995, the Ministry of Communications of the Russian Federation commissioned MTT to create a common transit network for mobile radio networks in the 450 and 900 MHz bands, and the company in a short time prepared and implemented a grandiose project for the creation and development of a transport communication network of the Russian Federation.
It was in this year began the construction of a network that brought together virtually all participants in this rapidly growing market. In 1995, she signed the first major contract for the supply of equipment with the Swedish company Ericsson.
The foundation of the company OJSC «Multiregional TransitTelecom» was during the period of rapid construction of cellular communications in Russia. The development of cellular mobile radio networks of the NMT-450 and GSM standards by 1994 in Russia led to the need for the emergence of a single operator that would assume the function of interaction of tens and hundreds of companies providing these communication services. Equally important at that time was the emergence of uniform federal standards, according to which such interaction could occur. On October 31, 1994 the company OJSC «Multiregional TransitTelecom» was created to unite the disparate networks of numerous regional and capital mobile radio operators into a single telecommunications space, to provide a global space for communication of many thousands of subscribers.
