Saverio Orlando, Patrizia Bondi and Marco Burzio, Technology Telecom Italia

The Telecom Italia fixed and mobile networks share one characteristic, their capillary coverage of Italian territory. In the fixed network, the big novelty is the fibre optic network, which allows a service much faster than the current one to be brought into everyone’s home, with the same capillary coverage as ADSL. In mobile telephony, Telecom Italia is building a new network, better performing and faster.  

Patrizia and Marco, who work every day on the development of advanced network for mobile and fixed line services, tell us about the prospects and possibilities offered to the pubic, and about the most enjoyable and inspiring aspects of their work.
While Saverio remembers the projections made at the start of the Eighties for the development of the mobile network, broadly exceeded by the growth of the Italian market.
