TIM Launches Open Ran Mobile Network Coverage in Piedmont
In Saluzzo, southwest Piedmont, the TIM Group is continuing its program to deliver Open RAN Solutions across its mobile network. The aim is to speed up the development of 5G and Edge Computing digital services through new centralized and in-cloud functions.
Benefiting both citizens and businesses, Open RAN technology allows the mobile network to be made more flexible to supply ever more evolved digital services also in 5G. TIM thus confirmed itself as the only operator in Italy and among the first in Europe to have already launched an important infrastructure initiative to create the 'open network' model, which promotes the involvement of software development and start-up companies.
In particular, now that laboratory tests have been run in Turin and field tests completed in Faenza and Matera, TIM is also bringing the new mobile radio network to Saluzzo, thus creating one of the most extensive Open RAN coverages in Europe. This further technological milestone in Saluzzo has been achieved with the help of JMA Wireless for RAN software components, Microelectronics Technology (MTI) for radio-frequency equipment, Dell for the hardware, and Cisco for transport to the site. Italtel has supported TIM with the system integration of this solution.
