Alcatel officially launched its latest-born 3G Reality Centre in Milan, Italy, today. This facility is part of Alcatel’s worldwide programme which offers a live end-to-end network environment open to operators, content and services providers and dedicated to the development, validation and testing of next generation mobile applications and services.
The Italian 3G Reality Centre , powered by Alcatel’s Evolium global mobile solution, is intended to be significant because of the very high density of mobile users in Italy (over 50 million SIM cards) and because Italy is one of the very first countries to have launched 3G/UMTS services in Europe.
Alcatel’s 3GRC in Milan is featuring an array of mobile video solutions, spread over two segments: video content delivery (video streaming, video downloading, video push), and video communication (video messaging, video telephony, video conferencing, video mailbox). The 3G Reality Centre in Milan is particularly focusing on real time video streaming and broadcasting enabling download optimisation and video surveillance applications.
