INWIT and the Moscati Hospital in Avellino for 5G-Ready Healthcare
Rome, 7 June 2021 – The San Giuseppe Moscati Hospital in Avellino and INWIT, the leading Italian tower company, have entered into a partnership for the development of mobile multi-operator coverage inside the hospital. INWIT will install the DAS (Distributed Antenna System) Network infrastructure in the central complex, situated in the Amoretta district, which will optimise the reception of the mobile signal of the various operators in all areas inside the hospital structure.
Work for coverage of the Hospital City will finish after the summer, allowing, therefore, for mobile connection also in the areas where reception of the signal is currently poor or completely absent. With the improvement in mobile communication, there will be important benefits to the advantage of the work of healthcare staff, and of patients and their families.
It’s an infrastructural work that will allow the Hospital City not only to improve the quality of the connection, but also to be one of the top healthcare structures already ready for 5G, the technology that will make it possible to develop and enable new digital and E-Health services.
“With the agreement entered into with the Moscati Hospital in Avellino, INWIT continues its mission for the digitalisation of the country in support of mobile operators. During the pandemic period, 30 healthcare structures have decided, in partnership with INWIT, to install indoor systems: in 20 of these structures the system has already been developed; work is in progress in the other 10. This system will permit the development of telemedicine, thus supporting the work of healthcare staff, aimed at improving the quality of life not only of the patients inside the healthcare structure, but also all the people affected by illness and confined at home”, declared Gabriele Abbagnara, INWIT Marketing & Sales Director.
