As it became known to RBC daily, the Asian group of private investors bought out the production association "Radiozavod them. AS Popov’s "exclusive right to promotion in Asia developed by Russian scientists wireless standard. The deal amounted to $ 30 million new mobile standard is an alternative technology LTE, but will likely be on the market in five to seven years.
As told RBC daily Radio Works Director them. Popov Ivan Polyakov in the financial economic forum in Hong Kong at the beginning of the year pool of private investors bought for HK $ 30 million from the Russian factory exclusive rights to promote the standard HPIP (Hybrid Public Intellectual Product) in China, Malaysia, Indonesia, India and Hong Kong. It is assumed that Radiozavod them. Popov will bringing this technology to the implementation stage and give authority to operate by the end of 2012.
Developed a new communication standard HPIP close the technology to LTE, but surpasses it in a number of parameters. In particular, it provides greater coverage of one base station, while maintaining the capacity of up to 10 Mbit / s. For the introduction of such a communication standard will require replacement of base stations and GSM-chips in phones for HPIP-chips. In the industrial scale are not made until the last, but prototypes have been developed and can be integrated seamlessly into standard mobile phones. The introduction of the Russian communication standard HPIP, according to Mr. Poliakov, while not assumed.
Analyst MForum Analitics Dmitry Deev believes that to bring to market an entirely new branch of communication standards one country can not afford. "This will require enormous resources, Russia alone will not pull it and not pay for this innovation. In addition to the time of the final implementation HPIP other communication standards (GSM, CDMA, LTE) can be upgraded so that it will make a direct competition. Designated consortium of countries, which will be introduced and popularized this standard, it can realize and implement the technology, "- said Mr. Deev.
As suggested by an analyst at iKS-Consulting Constantine Ankilov, Radiofactory them. Popov fed strategically successful, selling rights to the technology to this region. "By selling the rights to use the technology in Asia, Russia’s reserves for itself the opportunity to capitalize on it in the Russian and European markets. If any of the Taiwanese cell phone manufacturers will support the standard connection, it automatically becomes popular on a global level in five to seven years, "- says Mr. Ankilov. "However, on the other hand, global operators will not be in a hurry to move to a new standard of communication. Advantageous to use, though older, but has developed an infrastructure technology, "- said the expert.
