Superfast internet in Berdavan: Rostelecom supports “Resilient (digital) community”

The launch of the “Resilient (digital) community” program took place in Berdavan village of Tavush marz on July 7.

The program is implemented at the initiative of SOS Sistems, with support from Rostelecom.

The program is aimed at building a modern model of resilient community in border villages. In the first stage of the program, “Notification and awareness”, efforts were undertaken for development of the infrastructure and modern solutions were applied to ensure the security of the community.

The skilled, experienced specialists of Rostelecom and SOS Systems have built an over 3 km-long fiber-optic internal network in accordance with the latest generation standards, providing multifunctional sources of operative communication, designed to ensure the security of the most vulnerable part of the community border.

The berdavan.login.am cloud platform has also been introduced, which allows residents to find out about the amount of utility payments, see the amount of property tax and make non-cash payments, make inquiries and vote without leaving the house.

“From the beginning, Rostelecom started its activities in the marzes, and we consider our participation and support in this project as a continuation of the adopted strategy. We aim to overcome digital inequality and make modern digital technology more accessible. This program will allow us to create a common digital environment for residents and make life more comfortable. The installed infrastructure seriously raises the level of security in the border region of the marz, as well as provides an environment for rapid response to a number of urgent and vital issues for residents,” said Vasily Rusakov, Commercial Director of Rostelecom Armenia.

Rostelecom has also helped create a video conferencing system, which will provide live communication between the community, marz administration and the relevant ministry and other institutions.
