Services

Thanks to the characteristics of our infrastructure and the presence of our technicians across the country, we have diversified our activities. We offer integrated and advanced services to numerous clients, particularly within the telecommunications sector, and in radio and television broadcasting.

Our way, new opportunities

To respond to the ever-increasing challenges of the market we operate in, we have placed innovation at the heart of our strategy.







Innovation and Digital Transformation

The transition to new transmission and coding standards, needed to free up frequencies for the development of 5G (a process referred to as ‘re-farming’), allows us to reconfigure our network and offer new, more interactive services. It also permits us to experiment with evolved content broadcasting platforms.

We constantly oversee the implementation of new technology, and explore future business opportunities.

We take pride in maintaining an infrastructural prerogative for services to quickly growing markets, such as the Cloud and edge computing. At the same time, we consider innovative uses for our towers and develop a Digital Transformation project that invests not only in processes, but primarily in our company culture.



At Rai Way, there is no innovation without sustainability

By investing in infrastructure, technology, and innovation, we are contributing to the infrastructural evolution and digitalisation of the country, as outlined in our Sustainability Plan.

Through our widespread presence across the entire length and breadth of Italy, we intend to contribute to the social, cultural, and economic development of the community and the whole country, whilst also combatting climate change. With this in mind, our commitment is solidified by:

  • controlling electromagnetic radiation;
  • reducing the impact on surrounding landscapes;
  • aiming for carbon neutrality in 2025;
  • constantly improving signal coverage in digital terrestrial television.

We are proud of our excellent knowledge, and invest consistently in talent acquisition, training, and in the wellbeing of our community.
