CPM experts traditionally take part in the Wireless Russia & CIS international conference and were excited about the offline format in 2021. Last year the conference did not take place due to quarantine restrictions, and the organizers proposed holding two formats simultaneously: a remote online format and the usual face-to-face format, which is much more efficient in terms of communication between participants and is one of the most important features of such events.
The business forum was attended by all leading telecom operators (Rostelecom, MTS, Megafon, Tele2, Vimpelcom and others), representatives of the largest of telecommunications solutions manufacturers (Nokia, Ericsson, Huawei, Qualcom, etc.), integrators, as well as delegates of international standardizing institutions (3GPP, ITU-T, GSA, GSMA). It is important to note the active participation of Russian manufacturers of telecommunication solutions, among which were SkolTech, GlobalInformService, Protei and others.
The forum focused on issues relevant to the Russian communications market and they were related to the development of 4G networks, planning and regulation of 5G networks, new technological solutions (e.g. Open RAN) and business approaches on creating and developing private networks (Private LTE / 5G) and IoT nodes. The tasks and principles of creating and filling new standards for 6G communication networks, import substitution issues and the launch status of Russian manufacturers’ communication solutions were also actively discussed.
