The XII Peering Forum MSK-IX was held December 1, 2016 in Moscow.

The discussion was also attended by the Russian manufacturers of telecom solutions and representatives of companies interested in the implementation of such products, including PJSC «Rostelecom». Vladimir Rubanov, Managing Director of the «Rosplatforma» compony was the moderator of the discussion. The forum participants exchanged views on how to develop Russian technologies, shared their experiences of creating competitive solutions and discussed the factors which promote and prevent the development of domestic industry.
This year the Peering Forum MSK-IX forum brought together over 500 participants. On the RDP.RU’s stand specialists of the company demonstrated the provider’s central hub. It was built on the Russian components and had all the necessary functionality. Cost-effective and efficient model attracted many guests of the forum. As a result, a number of requests was received for testing of the presented equipment.
The Chairman of the Program Committee Peering Forum MSK-IX Konstantin Chumachenko said:
“The aim of our activities is to give to market participants the opportunity to expand their business contacts and exchange experiences. The successful players’ stories are the most valuable because they help companies to plan and develop their own competence. The case of the RDP.RU company will be useful for Russian companies looking for a unique market way and rely on their own intellectual potential and competitiveness.”
The RDP.RU’s CTO and founder Nikolay Guzakov said:
”I would like to thank the organizers and participants of the Peering Forum MSK-IX for their sincere interest in our telecom solutions. There are many ways to imagine the future of our industry, but we all agree that in the current market conditions, we must act not only rational, but also quickly. That’s why we do not propose to use the outdated technology but take as a basis an universal platform which operates now and, taking into account the global trends, will continue its development. The main thing is a flexible software development based on the Russian source software. This is an area in which we face enormous open perspectives not limited by the domestic market.”
