Companies plan to collaborate in fostering smart infrastructure for next generation network applications in Italy


TIM (NYSE:TIM) and Corning Incorporated (NYSE:GLW) announced today they have entered a joint agreement to explore cooperation on a number of network applications and services.

TIM and Corning  plan to explore innovations in fiber technologies and 5G, as well as next-generation data-driven services such as the Internet of Things (IoT), smart cities, and artificial intelligence (AI). The two companies will focus on the evolution of infrastructure and broadband customer network platforms to better support IoT and 5G requirements as these trends grow.

The memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the two businesses is also intended to foster greater cooperation with other technology providers and industry forums, enabling ongoing innovation and sharing of best practices.

'TIM's goal is to cooperate today with companies that can help us remain a leader in communication services into the future as we accelerate our evolution towards the network and services of tomorrow,' said Lucy Lombardi, Head of Digital and Ecosystem Innovation at TIM.

This MoU is based on a shared vision of transformation through network openness, virtualization and simplification to drive a superior digital customer experience.'

'Corning prides itself on technology investments that help create new markets and drive industries to challenge what was once thought impossible. We collaborate with telecommunications operators and network solutions providers around the world to develop the smart infrastructure that our future global economy will rely on,' said Claudio Mazzali, senior vice president of technology, Corning Optical Communications. 'This partnership intends to  accelerate the delivery of effective solutions that enable 5G, IoT, and AI as part of TIM's digital transformation to bring next-generation services to its customers in Italy.'
