This test project, called ‘Wireless Castle’ was entirely funded by some important private companies, among which Intel, Smc Network, Infracom and Guglielmo.

As a technical partner, Guglielmo offered its contribution by creating the radio infrastructure required and implementing the LUMEN system for the administration of this first Milan public Wi-Fi™ network.

The initiative’s aim is to allow citizens and tourists to connect to the Internet so as to surf, make VoIP calls, chat, or check emails within the whole park area, completely free of charge and using the wireless technology.

Whoever enters the park with their laptop can turn to any of the four distribution points - Torre Branca, the Triennale, the Aquarium and the Monte Tordo Library - and obtain a navigation card specifying a personal navigation code. The card is free of charge and allows users to connect to the Internet for 3 hours. It is necessary to show an identity card to receive it.
