Finland's first 5G development environment opens to businesses

Finland's first 5G test network 5GTN expands in Oulu. 5G development environment of VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, the University of Oulu and the Centria Polytechnic will be used especially for vertical business use. There is already a large number of Finnish companies with whom 5G technology has been developed and will be tested in several application areas. The first new solutions are targeting for field trials already this year.

Together with corporate partners, VTT, the University of Oulu and the Centria Polytechnic will take their 5G test environment to a new stage. In the 5GTN+ project mostly funded by Tekes, future technology is applied to field testing even before commercial networks emerge. Thus, the opportunities offered by 5G technology will be utilized as early as possible. Companies have the opportunity to experiment with technology in their own application areas.
