Telecommunication Periphery in Siberia:
Identification, Differentiation, Minimization
On the basis of the author’s database on telecommunication lines, the situation in the administrative centers of Siberian municipal districts and urban districts has been considered. Each settlement is connected to a telecommunications center, semi-periphery or periphery using a special algorithm that uses an information flow router to identify dead-end telecommunication lines in Siberia. The distribution of administrative centers by regions and telecommunication center-peripheral situations has been given. The differentiation of Siberia into three zones with different configurations has been done, and specific weight of the telecommunications periphery has been calculated according to the area and population. To minimize the periphery it was proposed to lay ten fiber-optic lines.
