The award ceremony took place on November 10, 2016 at the Congress Center of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation. Award nominees and winners, representatives of ministries and departments, large industrial associations and public organizations formed the auditory of the event. The Head of Department of High-Tech Development of Russian Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications Pavel Svistunov handed the award to the RDP.RU’s CTO and founder Nikolay Guzakov.

The EcoNATDPI solution allows to deploy on the one physical device all the three must for every broadband provider functions: CG-NAT, BRAS, and URL-Filtering. This product has exceptional functionality and performance: up to 160 Gb/sec per one rack unit (best result in industry), BRAS allows to implement the IPoE service gateway functionality economically, URL-Filtering provides 100% filtering and blocking the content banned by Roskomnadzor. Today EcoNATDPI has no analogues in Russia and abroad – no one of vendors does not produce the software and hardware platform with such features and specifications.

The national award “PRIORITY” is annually handed to leading Russian companies which achieved significant success in the field of import substitution.

The Head of Department of High-Tech Development of Russian Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications Pavel Svistunov said:

“The RDP.RU company is the one of two nominated companies which products are included in the ”Russian Unified Register of programs for electronic computers and databases” of the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications. This certifies the fact that the domestic developer produces its own product, and does not pay royalties to foreign manufacturers, because the code is developed in Russia. I am pleased to present the award to the company, whose contribution to the process of the sovereignty of our country deserves the attention and encouragement.

The RDP.RU’s CTO and founder Nikolay Guzakov said:

The “PRIORITY” award is perhaps one of the few Russian awards, which encourages nominees for their commitment to national interests. The government and corporations must work together to seek independence from imports of strategically in important industries, which include IT and communications. It is just as important as the inviolability of state borders. Both large and small companies which well understand market’s demands and have started to work in this direction in advance, can achieve success in the field of import substitution. We are glad to be among the best domestic manufacturers granted by such a prestigious award.

CEO Sergey Nikulin made a presentation “RDP: new opportunities for provider’s business.»

Source: RDP.RU

The forum organized by ComNews information and publishing group was attended by delegates from all over Russia: management of federal and regional operators, manufacturers of technical solutions, experts and journalists. Within the event the main industry themes were discussed: development of urban technical infrastructure, telecom, financing and improve business profitability, import substitution. The representatives of the regulatory authorities: the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation, the Federal Communications Agency (Rossvyaz), Department of Information Technology of Moscow, and others were among the speakers.

During the session "Transforming the provider’s business under the influence of information technology, new solutions and innovations" CEO of RDP.ru Sergey Nikulin told about the innovative approach to the creation of a provider’s central unit on the basis of Russian components.

The concept proposes the implementation of functions CG-NAT, BRAS, URL-Filtering in the one Eco3in1 high-performance device. In combination with two EcoROUTER full-featured routers (the first one for core network allocation, the second one functions as a BGP-border), Eco3in1 forms the complete functional model of the provider’s central unit. Thus, for the first time in Russia a domestic vendor, which already can fully equip provider’s central hub by proprietary devices, appeared.

An important feature of the EcoROUTER is container virtualization support. It allows to deploy the third part software on EcoRouter in addition to its own – cryptogateways, streaming antiviruses, IDS, IPS etc. Thus the pool of the provider’s central hub can be reduced to just three units (or six in a failover configuration). The optimization of the telecom infrastructure provides a tangible money saving, economy of energy, saves space in the server room. In addition, the EcoROUTER and Eco3in1 devices are multiple times cheaper than comparable foreign counterparts.

Talking about the implementation of URL-Filtering, the speaker emphasized the technical characteristics of solutions. Highly qualified RDP.RU’s developers achieved a 160Gb per unit performance. This is a highest figure in industry which allows to process at all HTTP and HTTPS stream at once bypassing pre-filter. This approach not only reduces the filtration time but also excludes even minor “leakage” of the traffic blacklisted by Roskomnadzor.

During the conference, several regional providers were interested in testing the equipment presented.

The CEO of RDP.RU Sergey Nikulin said:

“The main feature of our company lies in the fact that all our products are tested on real traffic of the "Ecotelecom" provider. In our portfolio there is nothing that would not have been seriously tested in the field. We invite everyone who wish to test the quality of our products, so we offer our equipment to test for free. Our company helps with the implementation, provides a full cycle support and ensures that all the declared results will be achieved.”

Deputy Director - Executive Director of the St. Petersburg State Unitary Enterprise "Smolny PBX" Marina Nechay said:

“The problem of import substitution in IT as well as in other spheres rests for the public authorities is a priority. There’s already a healthy competition and really interesting products which compete the world leading vendors’ solutions, on the Russian software market. I think Russian manufacturers can and should be active in participating of public contracts fulfillment, especially if their solutions can meet all data protection requirements. The demand for domestic software will only grow in the short term.”

The RDP.RU’s software was included into the “Russian Unified Register of programs for computers and databases” of the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation.

The EcoROUTER virtualized router was included into the Register in category “Server and linking software” and the EcoNAT in category “Control and monitoring systems”. The presence of this equipment in the Register proves these products have been tested by experts of the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation and are recommended for purchase by public government customers in the framework of import substitution policies.

The EcoNAT is a universal product for resolving IPv4 addresses lack problem. The software is designed especially for broadband access providers taking into account the industry specifics and increased requirements for IT system reliability and performance. If desired the EcoNAT functionality may be integrated along with BRAS and URL-Filtering in the same device.

The EcoROUTER is the first Russian IP/MPLS router which supports almost all known protocols: LDP, LDP-PW, IS-IS, OSPF, IGMP, PIM-SM, BGP and others. This software also has several modifications which differ by functionality and cost.

The “Russian Unified Register of programs for computers and databases” of the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation started its work January 01, 2016. Its main goal is to provide state support and preferences in tender participation for Russian software manufacturers. The current legislation limits the purchase of imported products by state customers, if there are Russian counterparts presented in the Register. To date, the list includes more than 1,800 positions, their number grows periodically.

The CEO of RDP.RU Sergey Nikulin said:

“The process of import substitution in IT is impossible without the active initiatives of the government. On the one hand, the great goal of national IT industry support is determined. On the other hand, there are urgent problems that require immediate solutions. If for the majority of the commercial organizations the issue of transition to domestic technology is not yet critical, some state structures today are in need of a full replacement of imported products. It opens up the new market opportunities for us as local developers which are ready to offer unique high-performance platforms for Russian customers. Some of these solutions have superior technical characteristics which surpass the products of the best world vendors.”

The principles of foreign telecom equipment suppliers cutting-off in public procurement became known

Source: cnews.ru | 07.12.2016

Due to a number of factors the last 20 years in Russian Federation were marked by lack of the development of software and hardware equipment for telecom.

The main principles of foreign telecom equipment suppliers cutting-off in public procurement stated in the presentation of the Russian Federation Deputy Minister of Communications Alexey Sokolov November 27, 2015, as wrote TAdviser.

The interdepartmental working group of Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications and Ministry of Trade coordinates this works. The Ministries intend to implement a number of initiatives. The “odd man out” principle means to restrict the admission of foreign manufacturers of telecom equipment in municipal and state procurement, in the presence of two or more proposals of goods of Russian origin. The preference providing means that participants with proposals of goods of Russian origin in municipal and state tenders will be granted the 15% discount. According to initiatives the mandatory testing according to procedures developed by the Ministry of Communications in conjunction with the Ministry of Industry and with the participation of relevant agencies, to ensure the information security of the Russian Federation Unified telecommunication network must be done. The mechanism of preference for domestic telecommunications equipment similar to the mechanism implemented for the domestic software must be created in cooperation with the Ministry of Industry.

The restrictions proposed by the Ministries, apparently, will apply to both government agencies and state-owned companies. The document’s draft of a 15% preference is already published on the legal acts public discussion portal and applied to competitions, auctions and requests for quotations for the purchase of software, hardware and services of all state-owned corporations, state-owned companies, and natural monopolies.

The limitation of foreign software procurement law applies only to public authorities, but December 22, 2015 Russian President Vladimir Putin supported the proposal of the IT industry to limit the public procurement of foreign software would apply also to state-owned companies.

The CEO of RDP.RU Sergey Nikulin said: “Due to a number of factors in the Russian Federation over the past 20 years there was no development of its own software and hardware for telecom equipment. The exception were the companies, partially occupying the limited market of telecom devices, which were solving specific problems related to the security agencies, as well as OEM-manufacturers, who were engaged not so much in the development, but the import and adaptation of foreign decisions. The wide markets of routers, switches, equipment for cellular networks, wireless equipment were almost totally lost and occupied by foreign vendors.”

An import substitution, cost optimization and the air link was discussed at the "Two capitals telecom"

Source: spbit.ru | 07.12.2016

On the second business-forum “Two capitals telecom” the CTO Nikolai Guzakov reported about profitability increase by import substitution.

February 26, 2015 in St. Petersburg the biggest event the telecom industry “Two capitals telecom” took place. The event brought together network providers, software developers, manufacturers of communications equipment, representatives of public authorities and industry associations.

The CTO and founder of RDP.RU Nikolai Guzakov told about profitability increase by import substitution. He said: “Today, service providers are faced with several problems: the monthly fee grows slowly, but the price of imported equipment increases.” The laws which increase the cost price of providers’ service. In addition, providers are forced to filter content. The traffic doubles each two years what makes to upgrade the hardware base. In addition, the access to credits becomes difficult. Most of the equipment is made in USA so the data leakage is possible.

As Nikolai Guzakov said, an import substitution solves the problem of foreign currency rates growth. The percentage of imported components (e.g., chips) does not exceed 50%. One of the ways to increase the provider’s profit is introduction of value-add services (in particular, “an Internet for children”), content filtering on the so-called access list basis. The software solution is an ideal import substitution, said Guzakov. The embargo is almost impossible in this sphere. Platforms are made in the Southeast Asia countries. The development process is under our control. Our main product allows to “compress” IP-addresses, to analyze the subscribers’ behavior and to filter sites. Our equipment tested in the Rostelecom’s laboratory, we are grateful to the company for the strong interest in domestic equipment.

The CommIT Capital backed by Rostelecom invested in RDP.RU and RDP.Innovations (both included in the RDP.RU Group). Thus Rostelecom has got 15% share in authorized capital of these companies. The deal is estimated at approximately 130 million rubles.

The RDP.RU company is the leading Russian network and telecommunication equipment for network providers vendor. The company's portfolio includes the CG-NAT, URL-filtering service gateway BRAS, DPI, and the first Russian universal high-performance IP/MPLS router - EcoRouter.

Today the EcoNAT (CG-NAT) product is widely used in the PJSC Rostelecom networks and the RDP.RU company rapidly strengthen its position on the Russian market as a developer and provider of telecom solutions for network core, successfully competing the world's leading vendors.

The RDP.RU equipment uses x86 architecture based servers as a hardware platform. The company's products are included in the ”Russian Unified Register of programs for electronic computers and databases” of the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications” and in the Russian Ministry of Trade’s Russian-origin telecom equipment register.

With a contract conclusion Rostelecom received the opportunity to participate in shaping the RDP.RU’s technology policy and strategy to create more high-quality, advanced and popular products on the market.

The Chairman of the Board of Directors and Investment Committee CommIT Capital Alexey Basov said:

RDP.RU presented the 1st Russian IP/MPLS-router EcoRouter on the CNews Forum 2016

Source: RDP.ru | 11.11.2016



November 10, 2016 RDP.RU took part in “CNews Forum 2016: tomorrow information technology” as one of sponsors. The company presented its new advanced product - EcoRouter (ER) – the first Russian multipurpose IP/MPLS-router.

The solution is a multi-purpose device which supports all the demanded protocols: LDP, LDP-PW, IS-IS, OSPF, IGMP, PIM-SM, BGP. The equipment can be used at all levels: aggregation, distribution, core, network edge.

The main technical innovation that distinguishes ER-series routers from their foreign counterparts – built-in container virtualization technology. It allows to run an arbitrary number of third-party application and to deploy an additional network services on the same device: AntiVirus/AntiSpam, IDS/IPS, protected tunnels establishment using IPSEC or GOST 28147-89 encryption.

Thus, two routers of ER series (the one for core network allocation, the second functions as a BGP-border) plus EcoNAT3in1 (CG-NAT, BRASS, URL-Filtering) provide all the functionality needed for provider. Using this approach provider can build a central communication node entirely based on Russian components, while reducing the total pool of equipment to three units (or up to six for a failover configuration). This gives a tangible money saving, economy of energy, saves space in the server room, simplifies management and maintenance processes, and solves the problem of import substitution.

The second important feature of the new product is its versatility. The Intel’s integrated circuits based solution is well integrated with any network infrastructure. It mounts into a standard 19’’ rack. In the future the device will be able to operate on the national platform basis. All ER-series routers run on a common operating system EcoRouterOS, have an optimal form factor of 1RU to 4RU and are available in fixed and modular version which allows the customer to choose the optimum configuration.

The release of such a universal product significantly expands the market opportunities of the vendor. Earlier the RDP.RU’s products were oriented on mainly on the broadband access providers market. With a release of EcoRouter RDP.RU got an opportunity to reach the government and corporate customers.
