2016: Rostelecom will select up to 300 billion rubles for updating of network infrastructure

From 2016 to 2021 Rostelecom is going to allocate up to 300 billion rubles of own funds for implementation of the plan for updating of network infrastructure which provides implementation program - the defined networks (SDN) and technology of virtualization of network functions (NFV). It is written by Kommersant with reference to the president operator Sergey Kalugin[2].

According to him, financing of updating of network infrastructure can happen including due to sale of 16.24% of treasury shares of Rostelecom. "But still for this purpose not the most suitable market situation", - the representative of operator Valery Kostarev specified. It is noted that as of July 29 in trading time at the Moscow Exchange this share block cost 38.23 billion rubles.

Rostelecom annually invests more than 50 billion rubles on different projects therefore the amount with a limit of 300 billion within five years seems quite logical, analysts note. Meanwhile, as the partner of Deloitte Anton Shulga assumed, implementation of NFV and SDN technologies will take place within the general program of upgrade and development of network. The operator spent from 60 to 90 billion rubles for it the last years.

In the presentation of the operator it appears that updating of infrastructure of network and, in particular, implementation of NFV and SDN, will help to reduce time of an output of new service for the market from 14 to 3 months and also will promote reduction of number of command centers of network from 67 to 7 and to reduction of the personnel servicing network - from 80 thousand people to 50 thousand.

Meanwhile, Rostelecom expects to unroll in the fall of 2016 at least two pilot zones on the implementing solutions SDN and to involve in testing the Russian companies, including the Center of application studies of computer networks, and, perhaps, affiliated to Rostelecom of Programmable Networks LLC (Brain4Net brand).

Platforms should be selected in the nearest future, migration will be begun in October, 2013.
