Due to disagreements between the FSB and the Ministry of Economy, the development of the 5G network in Russia may stop
The FSB and the Ministry of Digital Security require the installation of Russian crypto protection in base stations, which are needed for the operation of new generation networks, in particular, 5G. However, manufacturers do not want to modify devices for local requirements.
In addition, the Ministry of Economy is also against. The department is confident that due to such requirements, it will be impossible to use foreign subscriber equipment and base stations in Russian 5G networks.
“If these requirements are adopted, only owners of smartphones and tablets will be able to use 5G in Russia, whose manufacturers will install Russian cryptography, base stations of communication of foreign manufacturers will also be allowed to be used only when Russian cryptography is introduced in microcircuits,” the Ministry of Economics concludes, Kommersant .
By the way, the installation of Russian crypto protection on already operating base stations will cost operators 14 billion rubles. Moreover, the forced spending will have to be faced not once, but every three years.
Representatives of the Ministry of Digital Science said that the draft orders are currently being finalized taking into account the comments.
