Russian Railways implementing quantum communications projects

Oleg Belozerov, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Management Board of Russian Railways, has chaired a meeting of the Steering Committee for the Implementation of the Development Roadmap for High-Tech Quantum Communications.

The event was held in Moscow and attended by Maxim Parshin, Deputy Minister of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media of the Russian Federation, and representatives from leading Russian universities and companies.

According to Parshin, the level of elaboration contained in the roadmap is one of the best.

“Russia can become one of the technological leaders in the field of quantum communications, while Russian Railways will discover a new market for itself and develop new types of business,” he said.

Oleg Belozerov said that the Company aims to build partnerships with market participants interested in technology that can provide a fundamentally new level of information security.

“Our task is to attract as many partners as possible. We need to develop a special quantum platform that will enable the explosive growth of the technology and the opportunity for all participants to monetise its resulting effects,” stressed the CEO of Russian Railways.
