The first industrial test site in Russia with 5G infrastructure for piloting healthcare technologies has been deployed in Moscow. An agreement on this was signed today by the Moscow Center for Innovative Technologies in Healthcare, the Botkin City Clinical Hospital, the Moscow Department of Information Technologies (DIT) as well as Rostelecom, within the framework of the IV Forum of Social Innovations in Regions.
The applied research, testing of prototypes and pilot solutions, digital services will be carried out on the basis of the 5G test site. In particular, it is planned to test VR simulators for training doctors, AR solutions for helping doctors during operations, remote monitoring of patients' condition in real-time, etc. Based on the results of the experiment, scenarios for using 5G networks in healthcare will be determined.
The search, selection and testing of medical services will be handled by the Moscow Center for Innovative Technologies in Healthcare. Rostelecom will provide 5G infrastructure, while Botkin Hospital will install the clinical infrastructure for research. The work will be coordinated by DIT.
The creation of industrial landfills is provided for by the roadmap for the development of 5G networks, approved by the government of the Russian Federation in November. In June, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin and the president of Rostelecom signed an agreement on the joint development of 5G communication networks in the capital and the creation of an industrial testing ground in Moscow.
