Korea’s KT Corporation is advising Ukraine on upgrading telecommunication infrastructure and introducing ways of managing energy efficiency while operating key government networks. The Korea Times reported that on Wednesday, Moon Sung-uk, head of KT’s Global Business, visited Kyiv and presented a plan for rebuilding the country’s communications infrastructure.
Some of Moon’s recommendations to the war-torn country included:
- Establishing public safety-LTE, a government-exclusive disaster-responsive communication network with high security.
- Building a military-broadband convergence network, allowing stable communication and 24-hour situation room monitoring.
- Introducing a government-exclusive internet data center to manage critical data for national security purposes.
- Utilizing KT’s advanced metering infrastructure to address power shortage issues.
The Korea Times reported that 18 state-run and private firms — including KT — have joined a delegation of One Team Korea to assist with postwar reconstruction in Ukraine.
