Na­tional telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions provider Tele­com Italia (TIM) and Eric­s­son have teamed up to launch a new VR and 5G de­mon­stra­tion area at Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci Fi­u­mi­cino Air­port.

The tech­nol­ogy-led ex­pe­ri­ence will en­able tourists to take a vir­tual tour of the city owed to ul­tra-low la­tency 5G.

Rai­mondo Anello, Head of In­no­va­tion at TIM Cus­tomer Unit within Eric­s­son stated: “Mak­ing vir­tual re­al­ity avail­able at Fi­u­mi­cino Air­port is a prime ex­am­ple in the con­sumer sphere of how greater con­nec­tiv­ity com­bined with low la­tency can open the door to in­no­va­tive and in­ter­ac­tive new ser­vices. As for in­dus­try, air­ports could ben­e­fit from 5G for au­tomat­ing and dig­i­tal­is­ing op­er­at­ing pro­cesses.”
