Import substitution in action.
The development of 5G networks in Russia must be carried out using domestic equipment. The proposal was voiced by the representative of FSB of the Russian Federation at the meeting dedicated to the prospects of the national project “Digital economy”.
According to the employee of state security, the domestic needs to be the key elements used for 5G networks. As an example, was named cryptographic algorithms and SIM cards, as well as equipment base stations.
As outlined by sources the newspaper “Vedomosti”, the mandatory implementation of these measures is still under discussion. Any specific proposals to complement the national project “Digital economy” by the FSB of the Russian Federation did not arrive.
It is worth noting that the launch of the world’s first commercial 5G network took place only at the end of 2018. For the development of 5G networks in Russia will be created a single statement that will reduce costs for all market participants. According to experts, the “savings” over five years will be at least twice (instead of 163 billion cost would amount to 72 billion rubles).
