Investing in the digital economy – A Special communication network for Russian officials

The Russian government approved the national program “Digital economy” and allocated 1 trillion rubles (217 billions $) from the Federal budget for the implementation of the presidential task — in six years to triple domestic investment in the digital economy, to create a modern, safe and accessible to all IT-structure, to transfer state agencies mainly to Russian software.

In other words, the government decided to move from the category of countries with developing economies to the list of developed economies at the expense of IT-projects.

It is interesting to note that experts have already begun work on the creation of a wireless network for officials and representatives of law enforcement agencies. It should appear by 2024. You can find this proposal in the passport of the national program “Digital economy.”

The network will use LTE-450 technology, which is characterized by high-speed and low latency data transmission. Devices in this range can work walkie-talkies, as well as transmit video.

By the way, for the operation of the announced network requires a frequency range of 450MHz, which uses the company Tele2. Tele2 representatives say that the company is ready to take part in the project and now they are discussing it with the authorities.

The passport of the “Digital Economy” does not say how much money will be required to create a communication network.
