In the future, it is planned to conduct applied research, testing prototypes and prototypes of innovative medical solutions and services based on the 5G network on the basis of the test site.

In Moscow, on the basis of the Botkin Hospital, the first industrial test site in Russia with the infrastructure of fifth-generation communication networks (5G) was opened. Breakthrough digital technologies and healthcare services will be tested here, for which high speed of collection, processing and transmission of large amounts of data is important.

As clarified Anastasia Rakova, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Development, City Clinical Hospital named after S.P. Botkin was not chosen by chance. This is one of the most advanced and equipped healthcare institutions in the capital.

“In 2018, the hospital received a grant from the Moscow Government for the introduction of innovations into medical practice. It uses navigation systems, high-precision neurosurgical microscopes, 3D modeling technologies in traumatology and orthopedics, artificial intelligence in endoscopy, the Da Vinci robotic surgeon is used every day, most recently, doctors were awarded the Russian Federation Government Science and Technology Prize for the development of innovative treatment technologies. patients with pancreatic necrosis. Thus, the Botkin Hospital is one of the flagships of city health care. We are interested in the possibilities of using augmented and virtual reality (AR / VR) technologies in surgery, ensuring fast transfer of volumetric files obtained during instrumental studies between organizations and other areas that can improve the quality of medical care in the capital, ”said Anastasia Rakova.

In the future, it is planned to conduct applied research, testing prototypes and prototypes of innovative medical solutions and services based on the 5G network on the basis of the test site. In addition, startups will be able to test their developments in practice on the basis of the fifth generation of communication.

The creation of such industrial landfills is provided for by an agreement on interaction for the development of 5G networks in the capital. Sergei Sobyanin and President of PJSC Rostelecom Mikhail Oseevsky signed the document in June this year.

According to the Minister of the Moscow Government, the head of the Department of Information Technologies Edward Lysenko, 5G infrastructure is deployed in the millimeter-wave range, most suitable for use in high-traffic locations. This allows you to achieve ultra-high throughput – up to four gigabits per second per user or device, as well as low data transmission latency.

“This opens up a wide range of opportunities for the use of fifth-generation communication networks in medicine, where the speed and quality of the signal are especially important. An example of 5G-based solutions can be round-the-clock monitoring of patients’ status, remote consultations in real time and new methods of training medical personnel, including using virtual and augmented reality technologies, ”he said.

Within the framework of the project, the Moscow Center for Innovative Technologies in Healthcare is engaged in the search, selection and testing of medical services. Botkin Hospital provides its own clinical infrastructure for testing and research. The Moscow Department of Information Technologies assists in all stages of the project.

“5G technology is trending all over the world due to its capabilities and multiple use cases. Together with partners, we launched a 5G test site at the Botkin Hospital. Here 5G will function permanently. This is a unique opportunity for both start-ups and doctors to test innovative technologies in real clinical conditions and, if necessary, modify their own product together with the city’s leading medical specialists, ”said Vyacheslav Shulenin, General Director of the Moscow Center for Innovative Technologies in Healthcare of the Social Development Complex.

Now, together with the doctors at the Botkin Hospital, the most promising projects that need 5G capabilities are being selected. Developers can apply for website

5G industrial landfills are urban complexes, institutions or other objects on the territory of which a full-fledged 5G ecosystem will be deployed. Consumers and developers of digital services and services using 5G technology are actively involved in participating in landfills. In contrast to the pilot zones, scenarios for the joint application of 5G technologies in combination with other breakthrough solutions (AR / VR, artificial intelligence, robotics and others) on the basis of existing organizations of the city will be tested at the test sites. Polygons allow you to create the most realistic working conditions for new digital technologies.

“The first industrial 5G landfill in Moscow was created ahead of schedule thanks to the joint work of all project participants. Under the conditions of a real clinical infrastructure, innovative medical services and equipment will be tested at the test site, which can fully reveal themselves only with the help of the technological advantages of fifth-generation networks. Our project is important not only for the medical industry – thanks to it, the widespread introduction of fifth-generation networks in Moscow and in the country as a whole is getting closer, ”said Boris Glazkov, Vice President for Strategic Initiatives of Rostelecom.
