Sirti for the development of the DWDM network infrastructure

7 July 2022

Sirti will be supporting the activities for the construction and maintenance of the Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing motorway infrastructure in Italy.

Milan, 07 July 2022 - Sirti – an innovation hub in the network infrastructure development field and in digital and cybersecurity services – will be contributing to the development of the Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) infrastructure, an innovative fibre optic transmission technology, on the motorway network.

Through its Digital Solutions business unit, Sirti will be taking care of the design, construction, equipment supply, testing, optical measuring and maintenance of the network infrastructure covering Italy. In addition, the 24/7 Network Operations Center (NOC) 24/7 will guarantee assurance and network management services for a variety of customers.

This will further strengthen Sirti’s role as a benchmark player in the utilities sector, where it is able to offer its multi-disciplinary skills and know-how, as well as years of experience in the management of complex projects and the construction of network infrastructures.

“We are particularly proud to be contributing to this wide-ranging, complex project for the digital transformation of the motorway network”, commented Massimo Nava, Head of Sales of Sirti Group’s Digital Solutions Business Unit. “Open, secure network technology, combined with ICT experience, will allow Sirti Digital Solutions to guarantee a latest-generation, secure, flexible network infrastructure covering Italy”.

Work in Prison Programme: Sirti starts the first pilot project "Hope" in the Turin Prison

Sirti is among the partners of the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry for Technological Innovation and the Digital Transition on the work in Prison Programme, the aim of which is to create work opportunities for prisoners to obtain skills in the Telecommunications and Information & Communication Technology sectors. This practical programme seeks to offer prisoners the opportunity to acquire new skills they will also be able to use when their term of imprisonment has been completed, in two sectors that are crucial for the country’s future development. In this context, Sirti has acted as coordinator of the training projects in the network infrastructures area, and in reconditioning work, indispensable for bringing broadband services to homes, schools, healthcare facilities and remote sites, finalising a pilot project involving Turin Prison. The pilot project in Turin allowed the company to draft a series of guidelines, teaching models and workshop organisation frameworks that it will be able to share at national level, so they can be replicated by all those companies wishing to take part in such schemes in the future. Encouraged by the success of the project in Turin Prison, Sirti has undertaken a similar project at Rebibbia Prison, in synergy with Open Fiber.             Laura Cioli, CEO of Sirti: “I believe that the Work in Prison Programme is an effective example of how crucial issues for the country, such as the lack of qualified workers and the need to rehabilitate prisoners, can be tackled using innovative methods, thanks to the systematic collaboration between the Institutions and private enterprise. This approach is also closely aligned with our “hands-on” philosophy, one of the strategic cornerstones that has distinguished what we do for over 100 years. This is why we decided to join the project and enthusiastically play an active part in it, in the hope that it may be of inspiration in the future for a growing number of companies”.       Sirti is an innovation hub in the network infrastructure development field and in digital and cybersecurity services.

Sirti: IoT project for monitoring electrical infrastructures

A highly innovative system, jointly created with Terna, which will enable the real-time and remote analysis of data, even on lines located in difficult-to-reach areas and areas subject to extreme weather conditions. Milan, 18 July 2022 - Sirti – an innovation hub in the network infrastructure development field and in digital and cybersecurity services – has announced the completion of an Internet of Things project jointly created with Terna, the company that manages the national high and ultra-high voltage power transmission network, for the real-time and remote monitoring of electrical infrastructures. Specifically, the project has involved the creation of an IoT system – equipped with sensors, edge computing modules and modules for the transmission of data to a central platform – able to monitor electrical infrastructures even in areas that are difficult to reach and subject to extreme environmental conditions, characterised by strong winds and low temperatures. Working in synergy with Terna’s technical staff, Sirti Digital Solutions developers and Sirti Energia professionals have created an integrated system for the measurement, collection and real-time processing of data on the functioning of the high-voltage electricity lines, composed of a series of technological and operational elements This complex system comprises: a network of sensors, to measure the voltage loads on the lines that transport electrical energy, and to detect any anomalies, in real time, also regarding the stability of the pylons; an edge computing and remote control system to collect and process data in the field, using firmware and software modules optimised for an operating environment with many critical issues; a data transmission module, which uses LoRA, guaranteeing the management, backup and transmission of data via LTE; a weather station able to detect a wide range of environmental parameters; an energy station that guarantees a power supply, even in low irradiance conditions, thanks to solar panels and accumulators. “This project jointly created with Terna is a tangible example of how the integration of innovative technological solutions can make an effective contribution to the protection and monitoring of strategic infrastructures for the country, on which essential services for the community depend. It was very stimulating to rise to a challenge for which there were no consolidated solutions, and which therefore required a design thinking effort that has allowed us to solve complex problems by adopting a creative, sustainable vision”, explained Laura Cioli, CEO of Sirti.
