Russian integrator NVision, controlled by the MTS Group, in cooperation with Ericsson, has deployed a corporate LTE network for the petrochemical company Sibur. The network of data and convergent services on the basis of the Private LTE concept has already been tested. The network will be used for data collection and processing, as well as for automation of industrial processes. Two plants of the Sibur group in the Yugra and Tomsk regions were connected to the network during tests. The network is ready for commercial use.

Under the framework of the project, the MCPTT (Mission Critical Push To Talk) system on the basis of equipment from Ericsson has been deployed. NVision signed an agreement on the launch of first Private LTE networks in Russia with Ericsson earlier this February.
