The joint initiative promoted by project leaders Open Fiber and Wind Tre aims to implement the “5G City” project in order to supply innovative services with a major impact in terms of social and economic utility.
Both Open Fiber and Wind Tre are involved in two important ultra-broadbandBroadband The term broadband, in telecommunications, generally refers to the transmission and reception of information data at a connection speed of over 144 kb/s. Broadband organises different channels, conveying different content in the form of data, such as Internet radio, animation, audio files and high-definition video. infrastructure projects in Italy. Open Fiber is developing a highly extensive and pervasive future-proofFuture-proof Fiber optics is referred to as ‘future-proof’ because it is the only solution that can evolve and support increasing transmission capacities, which in the future may reach up to 40 Gbps, supporting the most advanced services and the potential of new technologies that will arrive in the coming years. fiber optics networkNetwork In computer language, the term network defines a set of hardware and software devices which, when linked together, enable the exchange and sharing of resources, data or information. In a computer network, the devices that generate, route and terminate data are called network nodes. based on a modern, open, efficient, technologically neutral, native NGA architecture.
Wind Tre is currently involved in a project to integrate and modernise the mobile network, which when fully operational will lead to the development of an extensive network all over Italy operating with 2G, 3G, 4G and 4.5G technologies.
Both projects are synergic to the development of 5G networks, which will enable high-capacity and/or very low latencyLatency This term indicates the time lapse between the stimulation of a system and the observation of the resulting effect. In telecommunications, by extension, it refers to the time it takes for a data packet to travel from the source computer to the destination computer. services that are able to manage large numbers of devices.
