Rostelecom in strategic partnership with Gazprom Neft

Rostelecom has signed a strategic partnership agreement with Gazprom Neft on industrial internet of things (IIoT) development.

The key goal of the agreement was to establish long-term and effective cooperation between the two companies to form new business models as well as to develop and implement innovative IT technologies.

The cooperation would focus on joint programmes and activities, research and projects in the IIoT space.

As part of this move, Rostelecom was involved in the creation of a platform which, with the help of the company's engineers, would be tuned to Gazprom Neft's current and prospective business processes and industrial applications.
