An association for the promotion of network technologies on open standards has been created in Russia


The Open Network Technologies Association, formed in Russia with the aim of creating network equipment and software based on open international standards, begins its work.

The founders of the new structure were the operator MTS, the autonomous non-profit organization for assistance in the development of digital infrastructure “Consortium” Telecommunication Technologies “(ANO TT), JSC” Research and Production Company “Kryptonite” and the autonomous non-profit educational organization of higher education “Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology” Skoltech). In the near future, interested players of the Russian telecommunications market will be invited to participate in the project.

The Association intends to provide support to manufacturers and developers in the development and application of open standards and technologies. This is expected to allow new vendors to enter the market, which will, among other things, facilitate the adoption of 5G systems.

In addition, the use of open network technologies will make it possible to increase the efficiency of the development and operation of network infrastructures by reducing capital costs, reducing the time to implement technical solutions and achieving management flexibility.

The use of hardware platforms with a standard open architecture and the standardization of all interfaces for network equipment is one of the most promising ways to create domestic network equipment and software in the field of telecommunications.“, – note the project participants.
