A cooperation project of the concern’s research groups, enterprises of Rostec’s radioelectronic cluster and technological partners have developed laboratory segments of a 5G network. Pilot operation of the network will start in test zones already in the summer of 2019. Vladimir Kabanov, CEO of Avtomatika Concern, reported this in a press conference during the CIPR-2019.
Currently the concern’s proposal is being discussed by companies of the industry, specialized federal executive authorities and telecom operators for the development of solution, which would allow the creation of a Russian national network by 2021. This would need both the appropriate level of service for the end user as well as the required level of trust concerning national security.
“The creation of an all-Russian 5G infrastructure is a task of national proportions. We have to remember that 5G networks will be the base building blocks of the Digital Economy program and the development of Internet of Things. This sets demands for increased security requirements for both hardware and software in this area. Rostec is able to build reliable and well-tested technology for new generation networks in a short timeframe. At the moment, the industry and the state are discussing a set of interrelated measures that create conditions for the widespread implementation of Russian designs”, says the CEO of Rostec, Sergey Chemezov.
The concern’s solution is characterized by the predominant use of Russian designs, fully complying with the requirements for obtaining the status of telecommunication equipment of Russian origin and Russian software. They are currently undergoing the process of registration.
“The Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade, together with Rostec and Avtomatika, presented proposals for the development of a set of interrelated measures to ensure the implementation of domestic solutions for 5G/IMT-2020 networks. Such a concept implies, among other things, taking measures to strengthen international partnerships and cooperation projects by localizing foreign technologies at the production facilities of Russian enterprises in accordance with the regulator’s requirements. At the moment, the draft is being discussed by telecom operators and other concerned organizations”, said the CEO of Avtomatika Concern, Vladimir Kabanov.
Further development of products in the scientific and industrial cooperation of radioelectronic cluster will allow to create a reliable infrastructure, which could be the basis for the implementation of the Digital Economy national program.
