Telecom Italia teams up with JMA Wireless for Open RAN rollout

Monday 26 April 2021 | 16:00 CET | News
Telecom Italia (TIM) said it has become the first operator in Italy and one of the first in Europe to begin deploying Open Radio Access Network (Open RAN) infrastructure on its mobile network. The first city in Italy to adopt the open network model is Faenza in the Emilia-Romagna region, where the operator has started to collaborate with longtime partner JMA Wireless to implement a system that decouples the components (hardware and software) of the radio access network with a view to fostering a broader industrial ecosystem.
