To enable the full value to be gained from digital services, it is essential to build cross-cutting, architectural infrastructure foundations that will support platforms.

The two main pillars which constitute these foundations will be modernity and sovereignty, two directives that may appear contradictory, but which must guide the technology choices made.

5G in 2019

During 2019, the 5G mobile network, deployed for the first time throughout a national territory, will be an extraordinary driver of new uses, economic develop- ment and attractiveness. It will multiply download speeds by 10, thus shortening connection times by the same factor. Simultaneous processing will be 10 times faster and will facilitate the unlimited use of connected objects.

Guaranteeing security and sovereignty

As a mark of Monégasque excellence, security is a top priority – the same is naturally true of digital security. The Principality also has its own Cyber Security Agency (Agence Monégasque de Sécurité Numérique – AMSN) which applies the best global standards in this matter. For both security and sovereignty reasons, regarding the applica­tion of Monaco’s legislative framework on stored data, the Principality is set to announce the launch by the end of the year of a Sovereign Cloud solu­tion for use by the Government and Operators of Vital Impor­tance (OVI), an infrastructure that will also be of benefit to companies based in Monaco. Also with the adoption of the highest corporate security standards in mind, Monaco’s Sovereign Cloud will have a digital “twin” in the form of an “e­Embassy” in Luxembourg.
