    Very good news, I fed up with Google, and US hegemonic position in Internet.
    As I said, in previous message, following the Brics decision to deploy a cable between them, and independant from US technology, it was following by new steps, and a fair search engine, is a good beginning in order to cancel US cumbersome position.

    MTS launched in Khakassia first 4G network
    The company "Mobile TeleSystems" (MTS) has announced the commercial launch of the network 4G (LTE) in the Republic of Khakassia. Developing a network of "fourth generation" will allow MTS to provide an opportunity to use high speed data services via smartphones, tablets, modems or routers at speeds up to 75 Mbit / s.
    To date, the 4G network is deployed in the four largest cities of the country - in Abakan, Sayanogorsk Montenegrin as well as the village of Ust-Abakan. In Abakan network "fourth generation" MTS operates in all areas, including in the private sector - the Red Abakan Harbor Legmash, hotspots - Park Gardens dreams, Inspiration, Victory Park, Montenegrin and Transfiguration park, the shopping center of the field, in Khakassia State University and elsewhere.
    "Today MTS 3G network is available to over 96% of the population of the Republic of Khakassia. However, only in the last year the volume of traffic on the network downloaded MTS increased 2.5 times. To meet user demand for advanced internet services, a logical step for MTS was the launch of the LTE 4G network in the region. Until the end of the year, we plan to provide 4G network and residents claim Askiz White yar, so the most modern telecommunications services will be available to more than 55% of the population. We pay special attention to this region and because of the first operators started to provide here 4G-services " , - said the director of MTS in the Republic of Khakassia Gregory Chernov.

    The Internet of Things is coming to Russia

    The Internet of Things, an interaction of devices, systems and services with millions of other such “things,” is being developed in Russia. A new cloud service, GO+, is aiming to grab a significant share of this new and emerging market.

    “For example, let’s say you want the coffee machine to prepare a hot coffee for you when you enter the office,” Alexander Grankin, co-founder of GO+ explains. “It will determine your location using a GPS tracker. Then you’ll get a fitness bracelet like the Jawbone, and the coffee machine will, for example, be able to make your coffee with the wave of your hand.” According to Grankin, everything started with a project involving the development of GPS and geolocation services. At that time it was called machine to machine (M2M) because it was based on transferring data between sensors from one machine to another. 

    Who will dominate this market?

    At its core, GO+ utilizes the architectural concept of the social network. The user adds devices and can give other users access to their data. The user does not have to have a single real device, but can be signed on to hundreds of others in his or her social environment, such as weather stations, transport trackers, air conditioners and video cameras. With this concept, a person can come to a café, sign on to an air conditioner in their GO+ profile and operate it. Internet services such as Twitter and fitness apps like Moves also fit into the IoT concept. For example, if Twitter and a GPS navigator were joined up, it could automatically broadcast data on the user’s travel directly to their Twitter feed. Many large companies are procuring solutions in order to combine “things” with the Internet. Google, for example, recently bought Nest Labs, which produces sensors for “smart houses.” “It is possible that the major brands are planning to take over the market this way, so that later they can combine all of the vertical solutions they bought up into one horizontal one,” Grankin says. “Big corporations are preparing to pounce so they can occupy leading positions, because there isn’t a leader on the global market for the IoT yet.”

    Vadim Chekletsov, Director of the IoT Russian Research Center and member of the Scientific Council of the Russia 2045 Initiative 

    The GO+ project is one of the few solutions in the IoT field that has great potential on the international market. This IoT platform, which is convenient and, most importantly, compatible with many standards, is the basis of the coming era of interconnectivity among the objects of the world. GO+’s advantage lies in its unique social network architecture and its capability to connect with any type of device. Another IoT platform is being developed in Russia called Commandspot, which possesses unique and competitive advantages. Despite the fact that IT giants like Apple, Samsung and Google have greater opportunities to promote their IoT platforms by preinstalling them on their devices and integrating them into their products, small platforms can certainly find their niche.

    Oleg Syutin, IT expert, Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) 

    There will be 50 billion smart devices in the world by 2020. The Internet of Things has the attention of most technology companies – both giants like Google, Microsoft, Intel, and Qualcomm, as well as start-ups. This niche provides an excellent opportunity for budding companies. The potential is enormous. For example, Jasper, an American IoT platform developer, got more than $1 billion during its initial public offering. 

    Today GO+’s aim is to create protocols for direct interaction among smart devices. A lot of development is under way in open source communities such as OpenHub, HomeSeer, and Connect2.me, as well as in large company alliances like AllSeen Alliance. But some challenges cannot be tackled in isolation. That’s why I like the idea of a platform that ensures cross-platformality. At this point, the security and reliability of inter-machine interaction is not being questioned very widely. I believe that interesting technological concepts in that direction will be in great demand.

    Russian Telecom Ministry Suggests Switching to Domestic Internet Domains

    Russia's Telecom and Mass Communications Ministry says that it is suggesting that legal entities switch to domestic internet domains in order to avoid the unilateral termination of functioning of Russian Internet domain names which are registered abroad that may result from US anti-Russia sanctions targeting Crimea.

    MOSCOW, January 31 (Sputnik) — Russian Telecom and Mass Communications Ministry have suggested legal entities and individuals to consider registration or transfer of their Internet domains to Russian registrar companies, in a statement on Friday.


    The suggestion comes to avoid unilateral termination of functioning of Russian Internet domain names registered abroad due to US anti-Russia sanctions targeting Crimea, the Ministry said.

    Russian users have been receiving notifications of possible suspension of the Internet domain names service from foreign registrar companies lately, according to the Ministry.

    Several major US companies have already ceased business activities in Crimea because of an order issued by US President Barack Obama on December 19, 2014. The order said that US companies must stop supplying products and services to Crimea by February 1, 2015.

    The restrictions specifically targeting Crimea were imposed by Western countries after Crimea's reunification with Russia in March 2014.

    Hi, I dont know if there is a dedicated thread around here for Russian IT so I just decided to post this here

    I'm tired of using Google Chrome everytime I browse the internet, at first its fast but now the speed is so crappy and there is even a point where my laptop said its running very low on memory even when Im just running Chrome the whole time with no other apps active. Is there any Russian browsers that I can try? I might switch to Firefox, but Im curious if Russia has some interesting browsers to offer russia

    I use Firefox and I do like the way it works... it occasionally crashes but tends to recover nicely allowing all the tabs that were open to be reopened after a crash.

    I also like the new tabs opening with thumbnails of recently opened pages so I can open a new tab and click on the thumbnail for this forum easily enough.

    One other browser I used for a bit was called Torch... it was obviously free and seemed to be rather good. I didn't use it long enough to find out if if slowed down over time as all my bookmarks were in firefox so I went back... creature of habit... Smile

    Torch is here:

    Yandex uses code from both Chrome and Opera browsers.  I use Yandex browser as I am supporting Russian companies as best as I can.  It is a pretty darn good browser too, far speedier than chrome (due to Opera's coding) and its interface is great thanks to Chrome.

    I also use Yandex mail and find it far easier to use as it has a very good interface and an easy drag and drop system.

    also comes with a pre-installed ad blocker.

    Got now yandex browser, seems better or on par with firefox. Like the layout and the basic functions that are better embedded into the browser like the security and filter addons to avoid spam, auto linking to other sides and other stuff, better than in firefox.


    Yota Devices intends to begin production in Kaluga

    Apparently, the phones will be a secure type phone, meant for all types really (but there is a huge demand for government and enterprise needs). So they will end up opening a plant to produce them in Russia for that. They will be expensive, but specialized.

    Need a new phone since my current one is broken and i have to use my 11 year old one right now, bit archaic but works like its first day. However thought for weeks to get a Yotaphone but i find those smartphones are to expensive and Yotaphone 2 is nowhere in my budget with 600 euro's, thought maybe to import it from Russia could end up being cheaper if i somehow can get it that way and avoid ordering it for german prices?

    Maybe someone has better grasp of that and how to get one for russian price?

    Nothing is made in Russia, because there is the brain drain:

    In Russia, the first network will be a quantum Internet
