The mysterious underground maintenance tunnels of the University of Oulu gained unprecedented value as the expert team of the open 5G Test Network (5GTN) at the Centre for Wireless Communications invited specialists from Keysight Technologies – a leading innovator in electronic test and measurement equipment – and Nokia to perform underground measurements in the vast tunnel network. Surrounded by thick concrete structures, the nearly endless narrow alleys offer an attractive angle for measuring the capacity of the campus wide wireless network and specifically its IoT components.
A new efficient media transfer method using multicast and broadcast technologies in the mobile networks, has been introduced to the 5G test network maintained by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and the University of Oulu.

Manufacturing Industry Digital Innovation Hubs (MIDIH) is a project co-funded from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and participating partners. The project has cascade funding for third parties (European SMEs). MIDIH project has announced that 1st call is now open.
MIDIH Call-1 targets the development of data driven applications, by IT SMEs as technology providers, and experiments in Cyber Physical Systems (CPS)/IoT by Manufacturing SMEs.
The open call aims at complementing functionalities around MIDIH reference architecture and performing experiments in CPS/IOT based on the components provided by the architecture. The experiments must cover one of the three main scenarios: Smart Factory or Smart Product or Smart Supply chain.
European SMEs can send proposals to Open call.
Max funding is 60k€ per proposal and call is open until 29th June.

The 5G team from Oulu goes to South Korea to install a unique test network in PyeongChang. There will be a connection between Finland and South Korea which allows the Olympic Park to be seen almost in real time in Oulu. People in Oulu are able to follow live streaming from the Olympic park and, at the same time, Korean people see the video from Finland.

It is again time for VTT’s CNL and 5G test network demo competition. The demo competition will be held at VTT premises in Oulu (Kaitoväylä 1) on Thursday 14th of December. In the event we will present some of the main results from our different research and development projects carried out during this year. In the event, the different demo groups will also compete for the Demo of the Year -title and CNL Trophy. The award will be given based on votes from audience.
The theme for this year is “5G and Beyond – Towards Autonomous Systems”, which targets on showing the various enablers for easing and securing our everyday life and handling the constantly increasing complexity of the networked systems. The developed technology enablers including for example utilizing 5G technologies for collecting and processing the sensor/radar information, improving the security in 5G systems and applications, and the sensor data analysis, are shown through different use cases from autonomous vehicles and self-driving cars to eHealth risk assessment applications and media delivery.
In addition to the demonstrations, there will be two keynote talks from our research. The first keynote concentrates on self-driving cars. The second keynote is on connectivity for autonomous ships, the architecture, use cases and research challenges. During the event, there is also possibility to see and hear more about VTT’s self-driving cars, since one of our cars (“Martti”) will be around during the event and participating in demonstrations.
Please register here: Registration link no later than 11 December.
