TIM is accelerating the digital transformation and strengthening its presence in Naples, with the opening of the new TIM WCAP to reboot the culture of innovation in southern Italy.  

Alongside the centres in Milan, Bologna, Rome and Catania, the new centre in Naples, dedicated to open innovation, will have an Innovation Hub as its strong point, created in partnership with Cisco Italia and Università Federico II. It will serve as a base for experimenting new solutions in the context of Industry 4.0, Cyber Security, Smart City and Multi Cloud, at the same time strengthening the synergy with the academic world.

The collaboration between TIM and Cisco Italia in the hub is part of the MoU drawn up last year, through which the two groups join forces and their technological know-how aimed at promoting innovation.

The TIM WCAP will develop a network of relevant partners and promising start-ups, providing technological assets and access to platforms and digital solutions with strong innovative content, enabling them to experiment new services, including those based on the indoor 5G network available for the first time in Naples.

In this context, the Innovation Hub developed with Cisco Italia, will provide the connectivity, the platforms and technological assets which start-ups will be able to use to plan and test innovative solutions. It will be an opportunity for synthesis between the global innovation, produced by major international companies, and local innovation generated by the creativity of local start-ups.
