Solutions and services for the creation of a “Smart City” model:
In the area dedicated to a smart city, Telecom Italia introduces an innovative suite of smart services from “Nuvola Italiana” for the creation of an Intelligent City. The main focus is on Telecom Italia’s Smart Town platform. It is based on the use of public streetlights integrated with and connected to telecommunications networks through conveyed waves. In such a way innovative services can be implemented to manage certain areas and relevant energy saving strategies. Telecom Italia makes smart town services available through cloud computing. Local authorities are therefore not required to perform any infrastructural changes and a wide range of value adding services can be implemented: from remote management of public lighting, to CCTV services and urban safety, to wireless internet access and the ability to communicate in real-time with citizens. Telecom Italia also introduces the “Wireless Patrol Sicurezza 2.0” service to increase the well-being and safety of communities. The service encourages police forces, citizens and local authorities to actively take part in public administration by notifying situations of urban and environmental decay and problems linked to road safety, simply by using a smart-phone, tablet or PC.
eTourism is a national system for tourism with an integrated platform capable of strengthening the competitiveness of this particular sector. Regions, provinces, art cities and organisers of archaeological, cultural, and “local wine and food” routes will be able to make use of a dedicated interactive guide. The service will therefore improve the tourist’s experience enriching it through multimedia and interactivity.
Solutions and services for the citizen:
Digital Health service:
One of the solutions presented by Telecom Italia, within the digital health services area, is “Nuvola IT Image Archiving”. It meets the market demands that call for a dematerialization and storage of diagnostic tests (digital images) and of health service documents (medical reports, certificates etc.) This solution simplifies a process which is both complex and compulsory by law such as storing a patient’s personal data and medical history. The service has been developed to adapt to all health departments and meets all standard requirements.
A big area is dedicated to “Nuvola It Home Doctor” to develop telemedicine in hospitalization and for activities linked to domestic assistance: monitoring patients, performing medical visits, writing medical reports, diagnosis etc. Through this service the vital parameters can be monitored through telematics so patients can be kept under control off-site.
The application platform is provided through “Nuvola Italiana” and is located in Telecom Italia’s data centres guaranteeing high elaboration speeds, security and privacy of personal information. In 2010 the service was awarded the “Premio dei premi” for innovation in the TLC driven category.
Among other Telecom Italia solutions as far as health services are concerned is “Nuvola It wi-doctor”, a group of solutions developed to efficiently manage electronic medical records. Sanitary departments can manage a patient’s medical records and information, (from when he is admitted to the hospital until he leaves it), on portable devices (tablets, I-PAD etc.) and on the move. These devices can be used instead of traditional paper medical reports.
Nuvola IT Digisign, is a solution for “graphometric” signatures, presented by Telecom Italia with Olivetti. It satisfies the market’s demand for a safe, user friendly, electronic signature device.

A mobile version of “Nuvola IT Digisign” has recently been implemented as an “on the move” solution, by using Olivetti’s specific Olipad Graphos tablets which can acquire the signature of clients and users on its display. It can also identify all “graphometric” parameters necessary to guarantee the authenticity of the person’s signature.
