MegaFon telecom operator acquired a stake in the Sharing Technologies startup, which will allow the company to enter the segment of software development for managing the radio frequency spectrum and communication networks in the future.
Sharing Technologies was registered in November last year. According to Igor Guryanov, CEO of Spectrum Management (which owns Sharing Technologies), the startup is developing software for managing networks of mobile operators: “The goal is to develop software for Megafon and, possibly, other operators. Now the product is at the stage of testing and approval."
Sharing of radio frequencies by different operators is already used for the 4G communication standard and allows operators to optimise frequency resources using fewer base stations. According to experts, with the development of 5G, the technology will become the most in demand, since there is a shortage of frequencies for the new standard in Russia.
