Boldyn to build 5G smart city network in Rome

The neutral host provider will implement the city’s Roma5G project.

Boldyn Networks has signed a 25-year agreement with Roma Capitale to build a major 5G network in the Italian capital.

The project will include coverage of all metro lines, installation of more than 2200 small-cells, public Wi-Fi with 850 access points and the installation of 1800 IoT sensors, and 2000 5G CCTV cameras. Boldyn says the 5G infrastructure will be open to all mobile network operators.

The company says this project will position Rome to be “technologically ready” for the Jubilee 2025. The city is expecting 32 million visitors for these celebrations.

“Thanks to this project, Rome will become one of the most advanced smart cities in Europe,” says Mayor of Rome Roberto Gualtieri. “The collaboration with Boldyn Networks will allow the creation of a next-gen technological network 5G and Wi-Fi to enable the most advanced digital services.”
