ICT.Moscow, a digital platform devoted to tech-based solutions, together with the city’s Department of Information Technologies (DIT), has granted free access to a unified knowledge base on 5G.

This unique project will enable users to keep track of the deployment of 5G mobile communication technology in Moscow. In the future, it will be possible to use the platform to stay abreast of the work being conducted in Moscow’s 5G testing laboratories.

The site offers open access to domestic and international cases of solutions based on the application of 5G.

This one of a kind project will be useful not only for Russian companies, but also for international companies wanting to understand how the technology works, keep up to date on related information or test their products in Moscow’s pilot zones and laboratories.  Companies from all over the world with ideas for solutions they would like to implement in its 5G pilot zones can communicate their concepts to the city’s planner by completing a special form on the website.

“One of the city’s primary tasks is to help businesses better understand the opportunities presented by 5G and to encourage the development of new digital products. For this, DIT and ICT.Moscow have launched a special project devoted to 5G – a knowledge base on the development of the latest generation in communication technology. The platform offers individuals and businesses the opportunity to submit ideas of new solutions for testing. As of today, the site already features more than 60 Russian and international case studies,” said Eduard Lysenko, Minister of the Government of Moscow and head of the city’s DIT.

In addition to describing 5G testing and usage practices, the site contains a map showing all the 5G pilot zones in Moscow, both those that are currently operational and those presently preparing to launch. Users can obtain information on the operators who are testing equipment, alongside a list of successful case studies and other useful information.

The news section pulls together information on events, presentations and studies relating to 5G. The site also has a separate section featuring views from Russian experts on the future development of the technology, its impact on business and economic benefits.
