The EU has been working actively to promote the development and deployment of 5G networks across the region. Intracom Telecom has been part of this initiative from the outset, developing its wireless networks portfolio to support the high demand for broadband connectivity in 5G backbone multi gigabit networks
Being fully aligned with the need to support sustainability – not only in telecoms networks, but in every aspect of people’s lives – Intracom Telecom also focuses on providing a comprehensive portfolio of Smart Sustainable City & Enterprise solutions. That is our near future.
As more devices become connected to the internet, the demand for fast, reliable connectivity will only continue to grow. What is Intracom Telecom developing in terms of network equipment?
All products that work in MW and mmW spectrum are now built to support 5G transport networks.
Moreover, Intracom Telecom has in its portfolio WiBAS™, a complementary product to 5G for fixed broadband access, which can enable operators to provide broadband connectivity to their customers, especially in rural and semi-rural areas, where it is not economically viable to build 5G or optical networks.
Artificial Intelligence seems to be an important element of the digitalisation process. Is Intracom Telecom ready to address this challenge?
Yes, this is true. We see AI as being the differentiating factor topping every solution we build. We have succeeded in having a comprehensive offer, including modules for Big Data clusters that we developed on our own, like cluster Monitoring & CI/ CD pipelines, as well as a multidisciplinary team of skilled experts, starting from systems administrators, developers and data engineers, to ML engineers and data scientists.
With such a strong team – comprising systems administrators, developers, data engineers, ML engineers and data scientists – we develop AIpowered applications
With such a strong team, we develop AI-powered applications on top of our products, while we are also working hand-in-hand with our customers to build solutions for them, working closely with their business teams and IT experts.
How do you imagine the smart city of the future?
Smart cities have been a hot topic in the technology industry for several years, but there is still a long way to go before we can say that we have truly realised the full potential of smart cities. At its core, a smart city is a city that leverages data, technology and infrastructure to improve the quality of life of its citizens, while also reducing its environmental impact and increasing economic efficiency.
The same applies to enterprises, which need to monitor their assets, premises and power consumption in order to formulate and enforce their operational optimisation and sustainability strategies. Intracom Telecom, with its leading IoT orchestration platform uiTOP™, addresses demands for smart organisations, covering all vertical applications from smart lighting to environmental protection and energy management. The true benefits of a smart use case can be seen in a combination of leveraging IoT data and artificial intelligence, which is what Intracom Telecom did for the project in our region’s largest city. In this case, our uiTOP™ platform was used in combination with our artificial intelligence Cognitiva™ platform to predict air pollution, bringing the city’s authorities and citizens more actionable insights on the state of air pollution in their city and ultimately helping to protect health.
