TIM and Xiaomi recently announced their new wide-ranging collaborative agreement, which focuses on 5G and aims to accelerate the launch of 5G terminals and solutions in Italy.
5G and its potential will make a significant impact, especially in terms of transmission capacity, reduced latency and beam steering, enabling the development of new services in contexts like smart cities, public safety, Industry 4.0, entertainment and access to ultra broadband. This will also be achieved through advanced network paradigms (e.g. Fixed Wireless Access, FWA), which will drive the development of new business models that are increasingly innovative and digital.
According to the agreement, TIM will provide Xiaomi with technical know-how through the highly qualified resources at the company's research centre, where it has reached important milestones in the field of 5G. The company's partner ecosystem at its Innovation Hubs will also be made available.
Xiaomi will supply TIM with the necessary technical and management support during the development and certification phase of the 5G products. The companies will work together to define and prepare communication plans created specifically for the joint launch of the 5G services.
