The Telecom Italia Group’s main companies and business units will be out in force at SMAU 2002, one of the world´s top ICT trade fairs.
New offerings and technologically advanced services for an increasingly competitive and constantly evolving marketplace are on show from Telecom Italia Domestic Wireline, TIM, Seat PG and Finsiel.

“Alice” is the undisputed star of Telecom Italia Domestic Wireline’s stand at SMAU 2002. Visitors can get hands-on experience of the potential of broadband and try out information, animation and interaction exhibits designed to offer an easy and fun introduction to this world. The wonderland opened up by the “Alice” range occupies around 1,000 sq m of exhibition space in Pavilion 15/1, including the innovative “Alice TIMe” package and “Alice 640” and “Alice Mega”, the most advanced solutions for seasoned websurfers and corporate users. The latest wireless broadband connections are in great demand, notably “Alice Flash” for the consumer market and the “Smart” range of products for small and medium-sized companies.
On 24 October recently crowned 250cc World Champion Marco Melandri will be bringing along his Aprilia motorbike for a special guest appearance on the Telecom Italia stand. The wonderful world of “Alice” and the winner of the world motorbike championship are no strangers to speed, the thrill of competition, the challenge of performing and the benefits of technological innovation.

MMS messaging is spearheading the TIM display. Pavilion 15/1 will also be showcasing Java videogames that turn cellphones into gaming consoles, video clips of football goals sent directly to mobile phone screens complete with commentary, the latest GPRS services, a digital pen for sending handwritten text messages as e-mails, and Blackberry for messaging management on the move. The “Play into the Future” exhibit is taking over an entire area of the stand to provide a sneak preview of TIM’s latest mobile technologies, including UMTS video phone calls, MMS messaging, video on demand and the i-TIM VOICE portal. Members of the public are invited to try out all of TIM’s latest offerings at SMAU 2002.
