Moscow 5G Demo Center Enables Businesses to Test New Technologies
Tuesday, July 09, 2019 | Comments

A 5G demo center for testing promising technologies and city services is to be set up in Moscow. The center will be accessible for both Russian and foreign companies.

The new laboratory will facilitate access to 5G technologies for entrepreneurs, create a local center of excellence, and help companies find and retain specialists.

“This space will provide businesses with the opportunity to test new technology solutions and assess the merits of industrial application,” said Alexander Gorbatko, deputy head of Moscow’s IT Department. “The latest urban 5G technological solutions will also be tested at the demo center.

“The demo center will be open to major companies, as well as startups and research institutions. Access to the laboratories will be given to companies from different markets, not only the telecom sector. We are interested in finding joint business models for players in various markets — industry, medicine, transport, and other sectors of strategic importance to the city.”

The demo center will operate on the principles of vendor neutrality, openness towards business, info security and compatibility, and patent and technological integrity in regard to equipment.

Agreements with the participants in the new 5G demo center will be signed in the near future. As announced earlier this year, by the end of 2019, four 5G pilot zones will be developed in Moscow. Each of the zones will be operated by one of Russia’s four major telecom providers. The zones include VDNKh Park, Skolkovo, Tverskaya Street and Sparrow Hills.

The Department of Information Technologies of Moscow (DIT) has been rapidly developing and growing for the past five years. The department has created 178 portals.
