Rostelecom to provide integrated telecommunications services to the State Automated System “Justice”
February 14, 2017, Moscow – Rostelecom PJSC (MOEX: RTKM, RTKMP; OTCQX: ROSYY), and the Information analytics centre of the state automated system (SAS) “Justice” (FSBI IAC of the Department of Justice) have signed a contract that will see Rostelcom provide a range of services that will ensure the functioning of the Department of Justice’s telecommunications infrastructure. The contract is valued at RUB 902 mln, and the contract will run until July 31, 2017.
According to the contract, Rostelecom will provide data services, rent of channels, and Internet access to a set of around 4,000 SAS "Justice" objects that are automated in Russia and CIS countries, including Armenia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Moldova. The System’s data centre was launched in 2016, and comprises SAS’s key subsystems and databases, which will provide robust high availability access to SAS "Justice"’ data network and Internet.
“Rostelecom has been providing services to “Justice” system since 2011.This year, we have significantly extended our list of services. For example, in addition to committing to delivering data services, we are also providing Internet access equal to a total capacity of 17 GB/ps. The total data processing capacity supported by Rostelecom will be more than one and a half times higher.
This latest development reflects the need to transfer heavy video content in real time during videoconferencing. Video conferences enable hearings and trials to be held remotely, which significantly reduces the duration of trials, and enables savings to be achieved as far as financing travel and relocation is concerned."
The project will rely mainly on Rostelecom’s own network Infrastructure throughout the Russian Federation, including satellite communication channels.
Technical support and maintenance will be available via a 24/7 hotline. Rostelecom will monitor service quality on a daily basis and performance will be monitored with results available for SAS “Justice” on a web-portal.
The Russian Federal State Automated System “Justice” – is an information system available across the Russian Federation and designed to create a single source of information for general courts of justice and the Judicial Department’s system under the Supreme Court of Russia. The system provides information and technology support to court proceedings. The platform also ensures that the necessary balance is maintained between meeting the requirements of individuals, the general public and the State in respect of the free exchange of information and essential restrictions on the dissemination of information.
