TIM has signed a Memorandum of Understanding together with Deutsche Telekom, Orange, Telefónica and Vodafone Group, to promote Open RAN technology for the implementation of next-generation mobile networks and for the benefit of consumers and businesses. Part of the group’s strategy is to work with existing industry associations dedicated to developing open RAN technology and standards, alongside collaborating with authorities on related issues.

The initiative will provide strong impetus to the introduction of the broadband mobile network’s new functionalities, in particular the 5G ones, promoting an increasingly widespread deployment and improving its management. The development of Open RAN solutions will increase choice enabling operators to further strengthen security standards, improve network performance and optimize costs with the aim of providing increasingly advanced digital services, such as those related to new solutions for Industry 4.0.

“TIM’s commitment to the creation of an O-RAN ecosystem,” stated Michele Gamberini, TIM's CTIO. “In addition to supporting Italian companies already developing solutions for new generation mobile networks, represents a solid opportunity to ensure our country plays a leading role as a provider of technologies for the digital transformation on a European scale. By signing up to the MoU with the operators, TIM is reinforcing its commitment to contribute to the development of Open RAN technology in Europe.”
