At Open Fiber we are working to develop an ultra broadband (UBB) optical fiber network that can bring Italy up to speed.

To achieve this goal we need to form partnerships with businesses that are able to guarantee the high standards to which we aspire. Only in this way will we be able to help connect the country.

Quality, transparency and sustainability of supplies are the principles which we hold dear. For this reason we subject our suppliers to a qualification process, a transparent system open to companies and professionals interested in working with us.

To be included on Open Fiber’s suppliers’ list, prospective suppliers must state one or more Product Areas in which they operate.

Open Fiber has two distinct qualification processes:

  • A&B Clusters
    This is the sector in which Open Fiber invests its own resources to develop infrastructure (cities and the most urbanised areas). It also includes all services and supplies used in its business activities.
    See the qualification requirements for inclusion in the A&B clusters
  • C&D Clusters
    This is the sector in which Open Fiber develops infrastructure thanks to funding granted by InfratelInfratel Infratel Italia S.p.A. è una società in-house del Ministero dello Sviluppo Economico ed è il soggetto attuatore dei Piani Banda Larga e Ultra Larga del Governo.

In the procedures for allocating works, services and supply contracts in its role as Licensee (C&D) for the development and management of a passive ultra broadband infrastructure, Open Fiber complies with the provisions outlined in its Operating Manual, as approved by Licensor Infratel Italia S.p.A. .

In order to participate in Open Fiber’s tenders (called for so-called ‘White Spots’) economic operators must have adhered to the Access Mechanism (ref. Operating Manual).

All access requests received will be subject to suitability checks by a specific Access Mechanism Committee which will communicate the assessment results to each economic operator.
