The management and students from Institute of Physics and Chemistry of the Ogarev Mordovia State University visited "Optic fiber Systems" JSC

On May 14, 2021, at the "Optic fiber Systems" JSC, the OVS management met with the directorate and students of the Institute of Physics and Chemistry of the Ogarev Mordovia State University. Within the framework of the meeting, the management staff and the best students of the institute looked at the optical fiber production, after which a meeting was held on cooperation issues.

Andrey Nikolaev, General Director of "Optic fiber Systems" JSC, opened the meeting with a welcome speech. Andrey Nikolaev expressed gratitude to the Institute of Physics and Chemistry management for training highly qualified personnel for the plant, and also noted that the competencies of many engineers and technologists who are graduates of Institute of Physics and Chemistry Ogarev Mordovia State University are already recognized at the international level.

During the meeting, the participants discussed a number of promising areas for possible effective development and mutually beneficial partnership. In particular, they discussed the expansion of joint work on the organization of students practice at the factory and the issues of training for the OVS with the help of targeted budget admission of applicants. They also discussed the possibility of creating a joint educational and scientific laboratory for technologies for producing special optical fibers.

Director of the Institute of Physics and Chemistry K. N. Nishchev thanked for the support provided to the Institute and expressed hope for further fruitful cooperation. 

Since the beginning of work, "Optic fiber Systems" JSC has been working closely with the Ogarev Mordovia State University. One of the company priorities is the development of human resources within the Mordovia and the expansion of scientific cooperation with the university. On the plant employs 130 people, of which 75% are graduates of Ogarev Mordovia State University.

Recall that since 2019, in order to stimulate the interest of young researchers in the problems of fiber optics, "Optic Fiber Systems" JSC has established a personal scholarship named after E. M. Dianov for students of the Institute of Physics and Chemistry of the Ogarev Moscow State University. Since 2020, the OVS has been involved in the targeted training of students. Also, the OVS, together with the Institute of Physics and Chemistry, is actively working on the implementation of research works.


“Optic fiber Systems” JSC ( – is the first and the only Russian plant manufacturing optical fiber. The plant is situated in Saransk, Mordovia Republic. It was officially opened on 25 September   2015. The shareholders of the company are RUSNANO, Gazprombank and the Government of Mordovia Republic.

Optical fiber is the main component of optic cables for signal transmission in modern communication networks. Fiber is also used as a sensor for monitoring deformation, temperature, acoustics and other indicators.

"Optic fiber Systems" JSC produces telecommunication optical fibers of standards G652 and G 657 A1 including those with reduced diameter of 200 microns; provides services on optical fiber coloring and the application of ring marks "ringmarking". Optical fibers of new types such as G651 and G655 are being prepared for release. Products are certified in Russia and the quality is confirmed by "Rostelecom" PJSC, Russia's leading cable companies and foreign consumers.

According to the results of certification, optical fiber was approved for use on the networks of the largest Russian Telecom operators Rostelecom, MTS, MegaFon and others.

Manufacturing capacity of the plant is 4 mln kilometers of optical fiber per year.
