On 27–28 September 2017 the XIth International Forum entitled Professional Mobile Radio, Satellite Communications and Navigation was held at Soglasie Hall in Moscow. The forum was organized by infor-media Russia with the support of TETRA and Critical Communications Association (TCCA) and DMR Association.

The two-day forum and the exhibition held along with it were visited by more than 300 delegates: representatives of government bodies, manufacturing companies, PMR (Professional Mobile Radio), satellite communications and navigation users as well as other industry professionals were among them.

The attendees' reports and round table talks held during the Forum addressed the issues of import substitution opportunities, PMR solutions for the benefit of public safety services and industry, PMR market development in Russia and funding sources, prospects for broadband services within PMR LTE-based networks. The second Forum day was devoted to development of space communications and navigation in Russia and all over the world and the opportunities of their use by government bodies and business entities for their official purposes.

The Forum reports covered those issues from the perspective of both the consumers of professional mobile radio and satellite communications and navigation and the design engineers, manufacturers as well as the industry regulator. 3 discussion sessions were also held within the scope of round table talks. The leading industry professionals were the speakers at those sessions; the discussion issues provoked strong interest and were supported by the audience.

The Forum opened with the welcome speech of Oleg Anatolievich Ivanov, Deputy Head of the Federal Service for Supervision of Communication (Roskomnadzor), which was delivered by Andrei Nikolaevich Kantsurov, Head of Telecommunication Permit Issuing Department of Roskomnadzor.

“Over the 11-year period of its success the forum has become a strategically important event for development of professional mobile radio communication industry — a platform for introduction and discussion of trends and innovative developments in professional radio and satellite communication and navigation”, the welcome speech stated. Oleg Anatolievich wished success to forum attendees in cooperation, sharing experiences, establishing new business contacts, taking part in interesting and fruitful discussions.

One more opening speech was addressed to the delegates on behalf of Aleksandr Nikolaevich Govorunov, Vice-Governor of Saint Petersburg, Head of the Administration of the Governor of Saint Petersburg, by Denis Chamara, Chairman of the Saint Petersburg Committee on IT and Communications. “Today’s event is of priority importance as it covers a wide range of issues related to discussion and demonstration of advanced developments in professional radio communication. In this regard it appears especially appropriate to join the efforts of state authorities, special-purpose communication equipment manufacturers, communications providers, scientific community for reaching specific public goals”, the opening speech set out.

The session entitled “When Will Tomorrow Come? Russian and International Market of PMR systems: Summary, Trends, Prospects” opened with the report of independent expert Mikhail Rybachenkov named “Professional Mobile Radio Communication: Last Year Major Trends in Russia”. The report specified the main principles for designing professional communication networks and choosing technology solutions taking into account the reliability and safety in case of emergency established as the essential network quality criteria.

Assessment of alternative traditional technologies led to a conclusion that the hybrid technology model could be the most probable scenario.

Svetlana Apollonova, Minpromtorg (Ministry of Industry and Trade), told the audience about information infrastructure security in Russia and the ways to enhance it. Svetlana stressed the extreme importance of developing domestic manufacture of devices capable of operating in the present-day conditions. “We are in contact with potential consumers now. No one wants to start a revolution, it is going to be an evolutionary process.

The current aim is to convince the equipment designers that they should form part of work groups so that the latest developments could be used in the nearest equipment replacement process. The best developments will be used as a basis”, Svetlana finally stated.

Evgeny Gukasyan, DMR Аssociation, reminded the listeners of DMR standard’s advantages and spoke about the Association’s activities. DMR Association is currently comprised of 135 members, 55 of which are manufacturers. Evgeny gave illustrative examples of DMR use and delivered a report on the users currently using DMR in Russia.

The forum continued with the discussion entitled “Major Drivers and Constraints of PMR Market Development in Russia and Worldwide” with the participation of Aglaya Qin (Hytera), Evgeny Trifonov (Motorola Solutions Russia), Vladimir Konstantinov (Huawei), independent expert Mikhail Rybachenkov, Svetlana Apollonova (Minpromtorg) and Denis Chamara (the Saint Petersburg Committee on IT and Communications).

During the discussion Vladimir Konstantinov emphasized that nowadays the key problems are the frequency resource and the budget for building a dedicated network. Denis Chamara reminded those present that it is crucially important to understand the development trends and national standards. “The quality of professional radio communication support is critical for us and Saint Petersburg, having hosted a lot of major events, is ready to become a site of experiments”, Denis pointed out. Evgeny Trifonov communicated to the delegates that at present the customers’ wants illustrate the idea of convergence of different technologies and there are cases of its practical application. It is important to create new products using cloud technologies, using software together with radio communication. Svetlana Apollonova stressed the need to implement new technologies. “After 30 years of using imported products it is hard to start using Russian technologies, but even now there are some Russian developments that may catch up with foreign technology solutions”, Svetlana concluded. Aglaya Qin mentioned that there are some problems, but there is also willingness to solve them. “We listen to our customers, carry out new developments, so, we will certainly find an overall solution”, Head of Hytera’s representative office in Moscow assured. Mikhail Rybachenkov raised the issue of modernization and reminded the listeners of the objectively distinguished technology lag in Russia and of insufficient support measures taken by the government bodies. Aleksandr Odinskiy, Gvardia Plus, who moderated the session, summarized that import substitution is going on, but it is a slow process due to large investments required: not only the money, but also the personnel is needed, at the same time the procedure for interaction with operators is not perfect yet, there are too many structures taking part in decision-taking.

The session continued with the report of Sergei Chivilev, Integra Pro, entitled “Use of Professional Radio Communication Systems to Control and Operate Telecontrol Devices when Solving Critical Tasks”, in which he dwelled on completed telemetry module solutions complying with TETRA and DMR standards for means of transport. The quality criterion for such systems is their price, the size and high reliability are also important. The proposed solutions allow for telemetry data collection, calculation of radio network load and provide an opportunity to implement non-standard interfaces set up according to the customer’s preferences.

Vladimir Konstantinov, Huawei, closed the session with his report Huawei’s wireless solutions; broadband and narrowband LTE-based access. There are solutions for the government, transportation system, logistics, energy and oil and gas industries. “So far we have created five open laboratories all over the world with plans to open 7 more, one of which is to be opened already in December 2017”, Konstantinov finally stated.

During the session named “Digital Is Coming. PMR Digital solutions for the Government and Corporate Users” Aleksei Berger, Svyaztransneft, told the audience about the latest trends in development of mobile radio communication systems. The report demonstrates that PMR digital standards have equal priority of use and the decision on applying TETRA or DMR is taken depending on the assigned tasks.

Vladislav Tamarkin, NIIAS (Research and Design Institute for Information Technology, Automation and Communication on Railway Transport), delivered a report on the use and prospects for development of industrial Internet of Things within the railway transport system.

The reports of Hans-Gerd Krause, Funktel Germany, and Klim Sidorenko, ONIIP (Omskiy Nauchno Issledovatelskiy Institut Priborostroeniya) introduced a new FT5 TETRA terminal to be used within the networks of all manufacturers and considered further enhancement of cooperation between Funktel and ONIIP in TETRA technology development and production for the Russian and European markets.
