Huawei Helps Italy's Fastweb Deploy City Wi-Fi Hotspots

Recently, Italy's Fastweb chose Huawei as partner for its city Wi-Fi hotspot solution, using the CloudCampus solution to deploy Wi-Fi throughout Italy and ultimately improve user experience during Internet access.

Fastweb is fully owned by the Swiss telecommunication company Swisscom and is the major alternative fixed network carrier in Italy. Fastweb has begun constructing city Wi-Fi hotspots, improving efficiency and quality of the service for its customers. During such Wi-Fi hotspot construction, Fastweb's key challenge is to improve the return on investment (ROI) while ensuring customer experience and carrying out operations and maintenance (O&M) on a large number of devices.

Huawei's CloudCampus solution is an end-to-end solution for customers that covers hotspot site selection, user experience, and simplified O&M. With this solution, Fastweb can smoothly switch to the cloud management mode by using current APs. This reduces the product acceptance cycle, simplifies spare parts management, and protects investments.

Zhao Zhipeng, General Manager of Huawei's Campus Network Domain, said: "We are delighted to be working with Fastweb in the deployment of city Wi-Fi hotspots, providing customers with high-quality network access experience and simplified O&M. Huawei will further strengthen its cooperation with Fastweb and increase its continuous innovation in CloudCampus for campus networks."
