TourFor5G stop in L’Aquila featured in a TgR Abruzzo report

To mark the event, the Abruzzo edition of the RAI regional TV news dedicated an in-depth report to the L’Aquila stop of the TourFor5G titled “The Future of Digital Communication”.

“The VR headset shows four different scenarios of the telecommunications tower, shared and digital, which allows not only to digitise the territory, carrying the 5G and FWA signal of the telco operators, but also to carry out, through IoT sensors, gateways and smart cameras, the monitoring of air pollution and forest fires in national parks. We are doing this in the national park of Abruzzo, Lazio, Molise, in the Maiella Park and in two other nature reserves,” explained Michelangelo Suigo, Director of External Relations Communication and Sustainability at INWIT, presenting the virtual reality project of the digital tower.
