To provide complex approach to the solution of this task, the Government attracted as partners in development in Russia of technologies of fifth generation of mobile communication Rostec and "Rostelecom.

told Maxim Akimov, the Deputy Prime Minister of Russia

Unlike the Road map of development of Wireless technologies of the communication developed within the federal draft "Digital Technologies" of the national program "Digital Economy" concentrated on questions of creation of technologies, in particular – fifth generation of mobile communication, the Road map within Agreements is focused on development of this technology, creation of solutions on its base and market development for a domestic communication equipment of a 5G.

According to the signed document, Rostec will provide development of the sections of the draft of the Road map concerning development of domestic technologies and the equipment, development and promotion on the market of domestic solutions, market grouping and stimulation of demand for domestic solutions and the equipment, ensuring leadership in the global technology markets.

It is about crucial technologies and creation of a modern, reliable, cybersafe communications infrastructure which for many years ahead will define success of development of digital economy in Russia.
