At study of the development strategy the CJSC RASCOM company put emphasis on own network resources created on the basis of the hi-tech equipment. In 1990e years CJSC RASCOM entered the trunk market, having offered operators of service based on the Russia's first fiber optic network on section St. Petersburg – Moscow. It was the courageous, but carefully thought over solution of founders of CJSC RASCOM: Oktyabrskaya Railway and American company Andrew Corporation. Creation of network in the territory of Russia allowed CJSC RASCOM to get advantage over competitors...[1]

In 2003 the development strategy of the company is developed - the decision on construction in the territory of Europe of own communication hubs and their step-by-step connection by DWDM channels is made.

In adoption of this solution, difficult for the company, support was given by shareholders: OAO "VimpelCom" and JSC Russian Railways. At early stages of development of the international network leased capacity was used, gradually replacing it with own systems. By 2013 the international network which has geographically spaced ring structure is built: frontier with Finland – Helsinki – Stockholm – Copenhagen – Amsterdam – Frankfurt – Copenhagen – Stockholm – Helsinki – frontier with Finland.

Since 2009 the international network was under construction, it was put in operation up to 1.6 thousand km of trunk capacity annually. In January, 2013 CJSC RASCOM finished construction of sections of Amsterdam-Frankfurt and Stockholm-Copenhagen network. In April, 2013 the first stage of works on installation and start in operation of transponders 100G throughout network is completed.

In the territory of Russia for the purpose of selection of regional traffic on section from St. Petersburg to Moscow start of the third DWDM system is planned. In the international direction construction of network continues and in 2013 the company intends to put in operation the first section, Frankfurt – Uzhhorod (Ukraine), on a transit route Frankfurt – Kiev – Moscow.
