5GTN rolls out new services – includes latest IoT

5G Test Network (5GTN) is opening a long-awaited NB-IoT network that makes it possible to test the Internet of Things on mobile devices, which will give a head-start to many. 5GTN also announces new service environment scheduled to open on 11th December 2017, when the practical benefits for companies will be presented at the kick-off event at Linnanmaa campus. More information will follow.

In future, 5GTN environment testing packages can be utilized as to-be-launched service products by joining the 5GTN Community. The purpose of the 5GTN Community is to prepare for new business opportunities enabled by 5G. Services of entirely new kind must be built on the wireless technology of the future, as competition for exploiting technology breakthroughs is intense in various industries.

The 5GTN is continuously developed by the University of Oulu and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. As the developer of 5G, Oulu and Finland enjoy a competitive edge alongside major international players.
