RUSSIA CONNECTED. 5G FOR RUSSIAN DIGITAL ECONOMY

14:00-15:30 Courtyard 1, Blok Restaurant
Transfer to a digital economy with information as the most valuable asset is a top priority target for many states nowadays. Russia is setting up a program for development of the digital economy, and 5G network is a technological platform for the new economic model. Are Russian investments, technological & human capacities sufficient to take up challenges of the digital economy? What are the prospects of 5G implementation? What are the first results of big data use for state administration?

Highlights

We want all cities with a population of over 300,000 people to be covered by 5G networks by 2021.

Nikolay Nikiforov
Minister of Connection and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation

The state should not intervene in centralized platforms themselves; we want them to be solid, independent private companies that feel confident on the Russian market and have global ambitions.

Nikolay Nikiforov
Minister of Connection and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation

A key 5G technology feature is its capability to serve a dramatically large number of devices by cutting signal transmission time down to milliseconds.

Nikolay Nikiforov
Minister of Connection and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation

The centre economy and business control in Russia will be run digitally, that is obvious.

Sergey Soldatenkov
Director General, PJSC «MegaFon»

We will spend all investments only if we understand how and through which consumers those investments will recoup themselves.

Mikhail Oseevskiy
President, Rostelecom

I see only one city in Russia whose demand structure will arrive at the need to use a digital platform in the very near future, and that is, naturally, Moscow.

Mikhail Oseevskiy
President, Rostelecom

The MTS way is not to seek synergy in existing industries, but to develop the existing competences within ourselves.

Andrei Dubovskov
President, Chairman of the Management Board, MTS
