The First 5G Summit R&D Russia in RUDN University


Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia (RUDN University) is organizing the first 5G Summit R&D Russia on June 19 and 20, 2017. Co-organizer is State-Financed Organization «Information City» (IT Department of Moscow Government), partners are Interstate Corporation for Development, OJSC Omsk Production Association “Radio Manufacturing Plant Named after A.S. Popov”, YL-Verkot Oy (Finland), Brno University of Technology (Czech Republic), Bonch-Bruevich Saint-Petersburg State University of Telecommunications. From the RUDN University side, Summit organization is provided by the Applied Mathematics & Communications Technology Institute (director Konstantin Samouylov). Representatives of companies, scientific organizations, and universities from Russia, Czech Republic, Finland, Hong Kong, Portugal, Sweden, UK will take part in the Summit.

Once in about twenty years, the cumulative technological progress is altering disruptively the capabilities of communication networks as well as reshapes their overall impact on the progress of our society. Previously, such changes were associated with the emergence of the third-generation (3G) cellular systems in 1999. These technological breakthroughs underpinned the construction of the connected society by providing the users with unprecedented services for transfer of multimedia data.

Soon, in 2019, the completion of fifth-generation (5G) systems and their ratification in standards are expected, while the launch of their large-scale implementations is scheduled for 2020. The emerging 5G technologies are designed to integrate all of the latest developments in mobile and fixed communication networks, offer the data rates of up to 10 Gbit/s, deliver the cloud computing capabilities directly to their users and, most importantly, become the foundation of digital economy.

The forthcoming 5G Summit R&D Russia in Moscow is the first event of its kind in Russia, which will be held at the RUDN University on June 19 and 20, 2017. The Summit will provide a convenient platform for the industry leaders, innovators, and researchers from both industry and academia to collaborate and share their ideas related to the novel 5G technology that can in turn facilitate its development, standardization, and implementation. At the Summit, particular attention will be dedicated to discussing the scientific perspectives on long-term transformations and innovations in the digitalization of megacities, by example of the city of Moscow.

5G Summit R&D Russia is holding in the framework of the RUDN University Competitiveness Enhancement Program “5-100”.
