CSELT - Centro Studi e Laboratori Telecomunicazioni - see http://www.cselt.it - was founded in Turin in 1964. It is the STET Group's Company for study, research, experimentation and qualification in the field of Telecommunications and Information Technology - see http://www.stet.it/ for STET.

Image There are 1200 employees (of whom more than 65% are university graduates), and CSELT has achieved such a high level of expertise as to be able to guarantee both rapid and high quality results for research and planning support, assessment and qualification of equipment, network and services. CSELT is actively involved in the implementation of the Information Society whilst working to ensure a maximum efficiency of infrastructures and services available at present.

CSELT's activities cover these fields:

Narrow-band Public Network

Customer Services and Applications

Mobile Services

Network Management and OSS

High-speed Networks and Services

Transmission Network

Optical Systems

Satellites and Radio Links

Quality and conformance testing

These are carried out within these Research Areas:

Switching and Network Services - see http://www.cselt.it

Network Planning and Management - see http://www.cselt.it

Mobile Services and Radio - see http://www.cselt.it

End-User Services - see http://www.cselt.it

Transmission and Optical Technologies - see http://www.cselt.it

These concepts best describe CSELT's vision of services:

technology makes it possible

the market makes it happen

the usability makes it work.

In over thirty years of activities, CSELT has moved from a national scenario to a global one, opening up onto new competitive market opportunities with a "time to market" view.

CSELT works in close collaboration with universities, scientific and cultural organisations.

Today CSELT has a leading role on the national and international scene by taking part in co-operative research programmes (Italian Research Programmes, ACTS, Telematics, EURESCOM) and also taking part in standardisation groups (ITU, ETSI, T1M1, DAVIC, NM Forum, TINA, ISO, ATM Forum).

CSELT research projects are conceived and developed in a variety of sophisticated laboratories, ranging from opto-electronics to service usability and simulation of environmental impact. In CSELT labs you are able to re-create the complete telecommunications chain, from network design to service delivery and usage.

These facilities are:

LAP (Accredited Testing Laboratory) - see http://www.cselt.it

EBC (EMC Competent Body) - see http://www.cselt.it

Multimedia and Video Services - see http://www.cselt.it

Audio and Speech Technologies and Services - see the cleverly named site http://beatles.cselt.it/ufa/www/Indexuk.html

Service Lab - see http://www.cselt.it

Signalling Lab - see http://www.cselt.it

Services for Hardware Qualification - see http://www.cselt.it

Prometeo Network Project - see http://www.cselt.it

In the ACTS context, CSELT participates in the National Host initiative and offers a set of hosting facilities for the visiting project teams. Indeed, CSELT has been a major driving force in the establishment of the Italian National Host - see http://www.cselt.it - with advanced telecommunications laboratories where it is possible to test and experiment with new technologies and services.

These laboratories are:

ATM Test-bed - see http://www.cselt.it

OS Lab - see http://www.cselt.it

Software Technology Laboratory - see http://www.cselt.it

Advanced Transmission Laboratory - see http://www.cselt.it
