Fastweb and NTT Data testing VR platform for remote visits

Friday 31 July 2020 | 10:41 CET | News

Fastweb has joined forces with NTT Data on a trial of Virtual Reality technologies designed to enable the Italian operator to conduct remote guided visits of some of its strategic infrastructure. The platform dubbed 'VisiVa' consists of VR viewers connected to an Ultra HD 4K camera controlled remotely by a single person via face movements alone. A dedicated VR viewing app is then employed to replicate the images on a desktop, allowing users to interact individually and via streaming with the spaces visited.

Fastweb structures currently included in the project are the company’s Tier IV Data Centre in Milan, its Security Operations Centre for companies and public bodies as well as its new 18,000 square meter NEXXT headquarters in southern Milan. The company said it’s using a 5G data connection in Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) mode integrated into its gigabit fibre network for the trial, while NTT DATA is using its own proprietary '5G Enabling Fabric' platform.

The partners added that the project has been accelerated to comply with new safety rules imposed by the Covid-19 emergency.
