Italy's Fastweb has selected Huawei's CloudCampus solution for its city Wi-Fi hotspot deployment throughout Italy.
Fastweb is fully owned by the Swiss telecommunication company Swisscom and is the major alternative fixed network carrier in Italy. Fastweb has begun constructing city Wi-Fi hotspots, improving efficiency and quality of the service for its customers.
Huawei's CloudCampus solution is an end-to-end solution for customers that covers hotspot site selection, user experience, and simplified O&M. SmartCapex, Huawei's hotspot site selection solution, uses a Big Data analytics platform to determine high-value areas through analysis of target cities, achieving targeted investment. For high-density scenarios where Wi-Fi traffic is offloaded, Huawei provides APs with the highest performance in the industry and that support 4 x 4 MU-MIMO. This ensures good user experience in high concurrency scenarios.
For the O&M of Wi-Fi networks, Huawei provides CampusInsight—the intelligent platform based on Big Data and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies—to detect network quality in real time and implement proactive O&M. In addition, Huawei provides a cloud management solution for carriers' B2B services. With this solution, Fastweb can smoothly switch to the cloud management mode by using current APs. This reduces the product acceptance cycle, simplifies spare parts management, and protects investments.
