5G and connected transport: innovating Italy's backbone

14 June | 12:10-12:30pm

Everyday almost 6 million people use public rail transport in Italy. Half are using regional rail to commute to work in the city with poor or no connectivity on board.

This critical infrastructure is the backbone of cities, regions and towns, and more than ever citizens are expecting enhanced connectivity and digital innovations that improve their experience.
