Matera is recruiting 5G for its future

There Matera Digital Week offers a full 5 day program (June 22-26) dedicated to technological transition in the Sausage capital, in which the keywords will be experimentation, applied research and scientific innovation. As part of the event, which is supported by Wiredwill be kept six thematic workshops with so much round tables in matters of great interest for technological progress, in the region of Matera and beyond.

In particular, in the morning Saturday 25 June (penultimate day of Digital Week) will be dedicated to 5G applications and at the core of this technology strategy: an opportunity to test and discuss innovative solutions across different areas of use, from industry 4.0 to telecommunications for the world of entertainment and cinema. The ambition of an event like this is to create a constructive discussion that will directly involve service providers and large and small companies interested in taking advantage of these opportunities, to Matera and for Matera.

The breakfast program

The event, like all other workshops, will take place at House of Emerging Technologies (CTE) of the Mother, from 8 to 14 about, as it was said on Saturday 25 June. We will talk about 5G from a technical point of view, but mainly from the advantages that this entails both in terms of logistics and business. After the institutional greetings there will be space for keynote speeches: the first will be given by Emilio Calvanesewhich will show how you can make the most of 5G and go even further, while the latter will be assigned to Kohin Hirano and will focus on AI for flood risk warning and communication. The round table, with a coordinator Wired and with representatives of Emerging Technologies Homes and local and non-local actors.

To coordinate the workshop during and after the Digital Week will be Tomaso Di Noia of Bari Polytechnic, who provided us with some interesting ideas in advance for the preparation of the event: «5G is one which allows technology that is transverse in different contexts and areasfrom Virtual reality in robotic to 3D printing “he said. “By taking advantage of this innovation, it will be possible to propose innovative, more efficient and functional solutions for digital transformation. In particular, unlike previous technologies, 5G allows you to take full advantage of IoT capabilitybut also to develop peak computing in multi-access mode (Mec) and to offer quality to private networksSome specific examples will already be visible in the morning of the lab, such as the aforementioned real-time alert system for flood risk, an automated system for assessing conditions and the level of risk immediately. This analysis is performed through a system smart webcams and an image processing system.

The fundamental issues and the strangest experiments

The effort to use the 5G network on a large scale in the Sausage capital has already begun a long time ago: projects started on the occasion of experimentation 5G Bari-Matera, where a number of solutions had already been proposed to increase the transmission speed, ie the bandwidth. “The 5G lab of the House of Emerging Technologies has collected this legacy and seeks to involve new industrial actors to go beyond experimentation, grounding the most advanced technologies “explains Di Noia. “The purpose is simple: provides support for Basilicata, Italian and European networks. In fact, the action starts from the territory but looks beyond and aims to become a reference point even outside Basilicata“, he continued.

In short, we start at the local level, but we aspire to achieve prestigious goals at the international level as well. The issues to be addressed will be key 3. First of all new 5G NR interface (New Radio), installed indoors and able to guarantee greater bandwidth and lower latency of communication than the previous ones. As Di Noia explains: Everything goes through 5G: in every sphere and context, a high-performance network allows the promotion of innovation and technical-strategic solutions. “Without this kind of innovation, the effort in many other areas is useless.”. The second key point is to develop solutions that can take full advantage of computing resources and adapt to the dynamism of user requests. From machine learning to in-depth learning to data-driven approaches, the idea is to set a roadmap for future activities in the area. Finally, the third fundamental aspect is the distribution of communication and computing resources between different service groups, according to the example network piece which provides for the sharing of natural infrastructure in such a way that creating virtual logical networks. The pursuit of this goal, in essence, allows the promotion of scalable, flexible, robust and high-performance solutions.
