4th International Forum "TELECOM NETWORKS: F&M Infrastructure. Sharing, Engineering, Development, Outsourcing&Metering"


Fourth International Forum "TELECOM NETWORKS: F&M Infrastructure. Sharing, Engineering, Development, Outsourcing&Metering", organized by Connectica Lab, was held at the business center of the Radisson Blu Belorusskaya Hotel in Moscow on September 10, 2014.

Over 250 representatives of business communities and government agencies, fixed and mobile operators, service providers, application developers, vendors, suppliers of solutions and services for communication providers, system integrators, analysts and industry experts participated in the fourth International Forum "TELECOM NETWORKS: F&M Infrastructure. Sharing, Engineering, Development, Outsourcing&Metering".

A number of issues were discussed at the Forum, related to the problems of infrastructure development of fixed and wireless broadband networks, their engineering, management and development, sharing, outsourcing of construction and operation of communications networks. During the forum considerable attention was devoted to the sharing questions of objects of passive and active infrastructure by providers, to problems of metering in communications networks, and to questions of frequency regulation and operator performance.

During the forum the representatives of the Ministry of Communications and Mass Media of the Russian Federation, FAS, Gorsvyaz, Rossvyaz, RRTO, VodafoneAlly, ORANGE Global, RTRN, TTK, MGTS, MTS, VimpelCom, MegaFon, IcomInvest, Intellect Telecom and other companies presented 27 reports that were divided into three sessions:

1. Regulation&Trends. Strategic initiatives, scenarios and development trends in the infrastructure of networks. Frequency-division multiplex of operator performance.

2. Communications Networks: topical issues of engineering, operation, outsourcing, sharing, metering of communications networks.

3. Broadband networks: practice, technologies, key issues and development factors.

The key themes of 4th International Forum "TELECOM NETWORKS: F&M Infrastructure. Sharing, Engineering, Development, Outsourcing&Metering" were as follows:

  • State policy in the field of communication: recent initiatives (regulation of mass mailing, frequency sharing, changes in approach of payments for frequencies, new rules on launch of communication objects, etc...).
