Following the integration between Exprivia and Italtel last December, a new company was created in the Italian industrial scene. This company will play a key role in the ICT sector, with its talented staff and cutting-edge technological knowledge capable of managing the entire value chain, from infrastructure components to applications and services.

"Merging into a single entity which combines Exprivia's Information Technology offering with Italtel's expertise in telecommunications sets the stage for the creation of a key player in the digital world at a European and international level," said Domenico Favuzzi, Chairman of Italtel and CEO of Exprivia. "With a strong focus on innovation, we want to be at the sides of service providers, enterprises and public administrations in their path to digital transformation."

Stefano Pileri, CEO of Italtel, said: "As the demand for data, new services and network performances continues to increase, operators must evolve their existing infrastructures to support full digitalization and meet current and upcoming market trends. In this environment, Italtel's and Exprivia's combined expertise can make digital transformation a reality, enabling the next era of connectivity."

MWC will mark the companies' first exhibition since the integration, with their showcase dedicated to:

  • 5G Services in fields such as Smart Cities, with an integrated platform to manage urban services; Smart Healthcare, with a telemedicine and remote assistance solution with the support of vocal assistance; Industry 4.0, with use cases that include solutions for connected factory and connected industrial machines and solutions that use the man-machine dialog in natural language (based on chatbots).
  • Digital Infrastructure - ultra broadband and 5G infrastructures are the enabling factor for new services and a demo will highlight Italtel's vision on 5G infrastructure, according to the Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) paradigm and NFV logics. The demo will present a use case of fast and safe location-based sharing of high definition videos and other contents in crowded places.
  • Open Innovation - two demos, both arising from Italtel's open innovation ecosystem, will present applications such as smart locking managed through a smartphone for use in different scenarios such as streamlining the operators' cabinet maintenance process, and a solution based on Blockchain for tracing and monitoring the food value chain.
  • Customer Experience - leveraging big data and analytics, a quality of service use case will be presented to demonstrate how a single control point can help enterprises improve the management of their telecommunications expenses.

Italtel and Exprivia will exhibit their solutions at Mobile World Congress - Stand 2G10, Hall 2 - in Barcelona from February 26 to March 1.

Blockchain. A day doesn’t seem to go by without seeing articles and discussions about the technology. According to PwC executive Seamus Cushley, approximately $1.4B has been invested in blockchain just last year.

It is considered by Gartner as one of the ‘Key platform-enabling technologies to track.’ While there is a lot of ‘hype vs reality’ discussions going on, there is no arguing that blockchain is b...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations?

For example, using spot instances and co...
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way.

Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the abili...
