The ongoing digital revolution is changing the way we live and create and it represents an unmissable opportunity for the western economies to regain momentum.
Who is characterized by its ability to combine the infrastructural aspects with the know-how gained from Exprivia in the field, is investing consistently in the 5G standard, the only one capable of providing concrete answers to the expectations of citizens and companies.
There are 5 areas that the digital revolution is having a particularly noticeable impact on.
First of all, the industry and the entire manufacturing sector, where IoT solutions and increasingly interconnected systems are able to increase efficiency and productivity.
Secondly, healthcare, where the promises of telemedicine can only be achieved by newly developed systems and solutions.
We must not forget the domestic environments, where personal assistants are rapidly gaining ground, and smart cities, which, thanks to intelligent infrastructures, can become safer and enable new behavioral models: it’s enough to think about the cars of the future, hyper-connected and without a driver.
Finally, the entire energy sector, both from traditional and renewable sources, is committed to optimizing and rationalizing the production and distribution of electricity, without which everything would stop.
Only the 5G standard will be able to give complete answers.
The technological challenge
The 5G standard is a double-sided revolution: one is infrastructural and the other major one is linked to the ‘intelligence’ and can enable a wider range of services. While the transition from 3 to 4 G has been incremental, 5G will open scenarios which were unexplored until now.
From a technological point of view the challenge is open on several fronts, and primarily concerns networks. In fact, fiber optic networks able to manage multiple real-time accesses with very high frequencies and densities and increasingly low latency times are required, as well as wireless infrastructures that are equally effective and efficient, which are the distinctive characteristics of 5G.
More importantly, however, is the intelligence integrated into the networks, enabled by standards such as software-defined-networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV). Last but not least, of course, there’s the issue of security and privacy, because over time the kind of information that will travel on the network will be increasingly sensitive – it’s enough to mention the clinical data – and will therefore require adequate protection.
The value of the 5G technology lies in its ability to deal with all of these challenges at the same time. Thanks to what is defined today as network slicing, which is the ability to segment the network to respond optimally to the requirements of the different applications that depend on it, a single infrastructure can, at the same time, deliver 4k video streams, collect data from hundreds of sensors per square meter, manage the provision of services with high added value, etc..
To ensure this degree of performance, the intelligence of the network goes further and further towards the periferies according to the MEC (Multi-access Edge Computing) standard: the network can host applications, paving the way for new business models.
This is the direction Exprivia | Italtel is investing in, as will be shown at the next edition of the Mobile World Congress scheduled in Barcelona in February. The Exprivia | Italtel Group, which is characterized by its ability to combine the infrastructural aspects that are in the DNA of Italtel with the know-how gained from Exprivia in the field, is deeply aware of it, and that is why it is investing consistently in the 5G standard, the only one capable of providing concrete answers to the expectations of citizens and companies.
Exprivia | Italtel is actively engaged on a variety of fronts, to which the 5G standard will be able to give complete answers, and we are receiving very positive feedbacks from the market. We are also present on all the national and international institutional tables where these issues are discussed and goals and strategies concerning those are outlined.
