Avtomatika business concern (a part of Rostec) will create a cloud platform for secure video conferencing (VCS). This was stated by Vladimir Kabanov, general director of the concern. According to him, the next step will be scaling the architecture and defining technical solutions in order to create a full-fledged cloud platform similar to Zoom.
In July, it was announced that the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications together with Yandex and Mail.ru Group were working on the possibility of creating a Russian audio and video conferencing service and using it in educational institutions. These IT companies already have such solutions. Mail.ru Group launched a free video calling service in test mode in April, and Yandex presented a similar service in June.
