For this purpose Nokia Siemens Networks, Russian Research and Production Company Mikran and JSC Rosnano have established a joint venture named “The Center of Wireless Technologies” in the Technology Development Special Economic Zone “Tomsk”.  By December 2011 the joint enterprise is planning to produce 1000 Flexi Multiradio 10 base stations, and this figure is to exceed 10 thousand next year.   

“We are proud of the fact that we have been the first who managed to launch LTE equipment production in Russia. As a result Russian operators will have an opportunity to use high-quality 4G equipment, -  said Viktor Gyunter, General Director of the Research and Production Company Mikran. – Innovative technologies and optimized production processes of Nokia Siemens Networks have established a solid ground for this significant achievement – startup of the first Russian production of modern LTE base stations with the label “Made in Russia.”  

“The task of special economic zones is to attract investments and advance technologies, to increase Russia’s share in international high-tech markets. The joint project of Nokia Siemens Networks and Mikran completely corresponds to these requirements,” explained Oleg Kostin, General Director of JSC “SEZ”. “There have been no more than 10 companies around the world producing 4G LTE equipment so far. Now the enterprise within the SEZ “Tomsk” is among them. This is an important step towards the development of modern telecommunication infrastructure and innovative economy both on the regional and federal levels,” emphasized Kostin. 

Herbert Merz, Vice President of Nokia Siemens Networks, at the opening ceremony said that Tomsk was not chosen by chance for this project. “We took into account its innovative, scientific and research and university potential, said Herbert Merz. – Besides, we see great administrative support from regional authorities: administration and governor Viktor Kress.”
