The delegation of RSCC has taken part in the conference on Digital Industry of Industrial Russia (CIPR-2018), devoted to topical issues of digital economy development. The event took place from 6 to 8 June 2018 in Innopolis (Tatarstan) with the support of the Presidential Administration of Russia, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Economic Development, the Government of the Republic of Tatarstan, Rostek State Corporation, Rosatom State Corporation, and in partnership with ANO Digital Economy.
The Conference is a current interdisciplinary platform created to consolidate the industry and support a global dialogue among representatives of various industries, ICT industry professionals, investors and the state on the most pressing issues of developing digital economy and non-resource exports, and on how to implement conversion in the defense industry and ensure cybersecurity.
The plenary session on "Digital Transformation. Trajectories of technological development" discussed the following central themes: definition of the main tasks and vectors of digital economy in Russia, the issues of interaction of government agencies with business in order to effectively implement the Digital Economy program, the challenges facing the industry, including the creation of conditions for venture projects and the need to create global human capital in the overall framework of the digital economy paradigm of the future.
RSCC specialists have participated in the panel on "Information infrastructure: drivers of the economy of the future", at which it was noted that an infrastructure for the implementation of the Digital Economy Program includes three main components: communications infrastructure, data processing centers, and digital platforms. The speakers were divided on the issue: some argue that the infrastructure should be built through private investment and driven by demand. Others are convinced that effective work on all three components is possible only with the participation of the state. At the same time, all participants of the session agreed that communication infrastructure is a key element of the digital economy.
On June 7, 2018, the program for Day 2 included a session on "Communication Technologies. Wireless communications and low-orbit Internet.” Evgeny Buydinov, RSCC Deputy General Director for Development and Operation of Communication Systems, participated in the session to present to participants of the Conference a project involving a promising multifunctional system based on Express-RV space vehicles in the highly elliptical orbits. The project is designed to provide a favorable environment for the development of digital communication infrastructure in various sectors of the economy, including for broadband services anywhere in Russia and the Arctic at fixed sites and mobile objects on road, rail, river, sea, and air transport.
