Skolkovo resident Telum to exhibit at Open Innovations in Moscow

Skolkolvo IT cluster resident Telum is scheduled to exhibit its mobile 4G reception station at the Open Innovations forum in Moscow next week.

Telum, a wireless communications startup, will be demonstrating the Ranberry B1000 at the forum. Nicknamed the "network in a box", the B1000 was developed for mobile close-circuit television use for first responders, public protection and disaster relief missions in rural and remote areas.

Housed in a yellow case, the B1000 features a fold-away antenna capable of providing broadband-speed connections stable enough for video conferencing.

"We're expecting significant interest from forum visitors and other participants," Telum CEO Pavel Boiko said.

Telum received initial project funding from the Skolkovo Foundation in 2012 to develop a self-contained LTE small cell technologies. Following an investment from Airbus Group Innovation Works in 2013, Telum was able to develop the B1000.

A total of 33 Skolkovo resident companies will be demonstrating their products at Open Innovations, held this year from Oct. 14-16 at Moscow's Technopolis. This year's forum will be headlined by Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang.
