MTS and SKOLKOVO launched the “importozameshcheniju” network 5GНаталья Solovyov | 30.10.2020
In the Innovation center “SKOLKOVO” in the pilot mode, a network connection, MTS Skoltech standard 5G. In a communication network of new generation for the first time used equipment and software
made in Russia.
The organizers of the project – the operator of cellular communication of MTS and SKOLKOVO Institute of science and technology (Skoltech). Network communication of the latest generation operates in the frequency range 4.9 GHz proposed by the Ministry of communications
Of the Russian Federation for development of the standard 5G in Russia. The most important units of the current base station, in particular, the antenna produced in Russia. The project is based on the software solution developed
using the OpenRAN architecture (Open Radio Access Network), which allowed the operator to move from traditional vendors ‘ components and to a wide range of manufacturers, without being attached,
thus, to the Western equipment suppliers.
In the near future, while the introduction of 5G technology in droves has not started yet, the network of Skoltech will be used as a platform for research, processing and testing of promising
developments in the field of communications.
The role of the “SKOLKOVO” as a testing ground to pilot services based on 5G networks are important and significant – in the ecosystem have access to the actual industrial scenarios, requirements, and best practices
technologies that are developed here, said Arkady Dvorkovich, the President of Fund “SKOLKOVO”. With the introduction and development of new data channels will open broad prospects for
innovation, from robotic production and remote control of equipment in hazardous to health that will significantly affect the quality of the provision
As commented the head of the competence Centre of STI on the basis of Skoltech technologies of wireless communication and the Internet of things Dmitry Lakontsev, the network, launched in the innovation center
distinguished by the fact that it works using domestic hardware and software.
This technology, the expert believes, it will be possible to scale not only the entire capital but also the whole of Russia, using it, for example, to create networks of Internet of things (IoT), including major
the industrial enterprises. Completely domestic production equipment – base station – with the domestic software will appear by the end of 2022, said Dmitry Lakontsev, and will
be used in projects of communications standard, 5G as well as international.
Recall that to test 5G technology and the launch of the first projects when the new standard in various regions of the Russian operators “the Big four” – MTS, Beeline, MegaFon and Tele2
started back in 2019
To use the servers of the Russian development with local trusted electronics in projects for the creation of networks, the last generation of Russian cellular operators ordered the developer of the road
cards for wireless technology, the national information center (a subsidiary of the Corporation rostec). We also recall that the roadmap was included in the list of the 9 most promising “end-to-end” digital technologies of the national programme “Digital economy”.
Mass introduction in Russia of 5G technology, according to nutsprogramme “Digital economy”, should begin in the coming months, and by 2022 the network of the new standard should provide a stable connection in
10 cities, and after two years all Russian cities with population over 1 million people.
