Since 2015, I deal with the innovation of TIM’s access network. I lead a project specifying and demonstrating the innovative paradigms of the so called Software Defined Access Network (SD-AN), contributing to the digital transformation of networks and the introduction of automation and service agility.
Among the key areas of expertise: Broadband Access Abstraction and VOLTHA/SEBA projects, evolution towards NETCONF/YANG interfaces for management and control of network resources as well as service abstraction interfaces for exposure of NaaS constructs towards Tenants, FANS and multi-tenant slicing. I work in coordination with our planning and SDN-NFV departments as well as the engineering groups in charge of the network assets and the OSS/management systems.
I have over 20 years of experience with standardisation activities (BBF, ITU-T, ETSI). I have been also an ETSI technical editor.
As of March 2008, I am on the Board of Directors of the Broadband Forum and Chair of the Service Provider Action Council.
For many years I managed a project supporting the engineering of Telecom Italia’s broadband network and the NGN2 platform. I've been responsible for the interoperability and assessment of DSL products, for the engineering of evolutionary infrastructural components for FTTB deployment.
I joined CSELT, Telecom Italia’s R&D center, in 1994 dealing with SDH networks.
Since 1998 I began working in the access network department with a main focus on xDSL. I've been involved in the specification and implementation of Telecom Italia’s DSL validation framework, lab facilities and in the scouting and qualification of DSL technologies and commercial products.
I coordinated Telecom Italia activities within the IST-Project MUSE under the sixth Framework Programme of the European Union with multi-million Euros funding.
I graduated in electronic engineering at the Politecnico of Turin in 1994.
