TIM has launched the TIM Home ecosystem, introducing a range of new products including a modem and a TV decoder.

The Italian operator said it wanted to provide a “technological heart” for the smart home for Italian families, becoming an enabler of digital services connected through a home IoT network.

As part of this, TIM announced the new TIM HUB modem, available to all customers on the Smart Fibra Plus 200 and Smart Fibra Plus 1000 fibre offers. It uses multiple channels to optimise Wi-Fi performance and support a download capacity of up to 2GBps.

It also includes a dedicated management app.

In addition, TIM introduced the latest version of the TIM BOX, a TV decoder, which provides access to TIM’s entertainment service TIMVISION. The upgraded TIMVISION includes over 10,000 titles, an enhanced interface and navigation menu.

The platform also provides access to the new online gaming service TIMGAMES.

The latest update to TIM BOX also has more powerful Wi-Fi connectivity, more memory and a new remote control allowing voice control.

The new products will be available from September.

The launches came as TIM also opened the first of several new concept stores in Milan, which are designed to showcase its full range of offerings. The stores are divided into areas dedicated to the smart home, entertainment and office.

TIM also revealed today that it had achieved speeds of 1GBps on its 4G network using Licensed Assisted Access (LAA) technology in a trial it billed as a “world first”.
