Cuba is successfully testing new technologies in the field of communications, such as IP Telephony, digital TV, and different phone and electric connections for data transmission.

IP Telephone technology is under evaluation at a Havana communication center, said Luis Conde, an expert with Cuba's Telecommunications Enterprise ETECSA, cited by Juventud Rebelde newspaper.

We have made some tests with that technology, which will allow clients access through a single network to telephone, data transmission or digital TV services, based on the appropriate equipment.

The evaluation process also includes what is known as Power Line Communications (PLC), which allows phone communication through power cables with no impact on the electric service.

The expert spoke during the InfoClub conference underway in Havana. He said Cuba is also considering wireless connectivity at short and long distances.
