Finnish city launches 5G test network with the help of Nokia
May 22, 2015
The city of Oulu, Finland, launched a 5G test network that starting in June will operate as a public test environment. The network is a joint project of the VTT Technical Research Center of Finland, the University of Oulu and a dozen other partners including the city of Oulu, the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority, Nokia and Yle.
The network initially launched as a closed network at the VTT Technical Research Centre but will open in June as a public test network on the Oulu university campus. It will eventually be expanded to cover other parts of the city as well.
