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 broadband infrastructure projects in Italy. Open Fiber is developing a highly extensive and pervasive future-proof fibre optics network 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 latency services that are able to manage large numbers of devices.

5G ENABLES NEW BUSINESS MODELS, PERMITTING DIVERSE PARTIES FROM DIFFERENT SECTORS TO COOPERATE TOGETHER TO DEVELOP NEW TYPES OF SERVICES THAT IMPROVE OUR QUALITY OF LIFE.

This is why the team includes partners from the business world, universities, research centres, SMEs, local public authorities, institutions and end users, all together to create the 5G ecosystem.

In particular, the partnership led by Open Fiber and Wind Tre includes telecommunications operators, suppliers of network apparatus, enablers of vertical sectors, suppliers of drones, sensors, IoT solutions, MVNOs and universities, for a total of 21 participants.
