LuxTurrim5G - Towards smarter city infrastructure with Finnish 5G test network

LuxTurrim5G is a key example of a project which boosts implementation of 5G networks and new digital services for smart city environments. LuxTurrim5G cooperates with the 5G Test Network Finland (5GTNF) which enables project partners to experiment with the possibilities of 5G.

"5G is a key ingredient of the 4th industrial revolution and it is crucial to cooperate across industries in testing and development of new use cases, like in 5GTNF project," says Lauri Oksanen, VP Research and Technology of Nokia Bell Labs.

In LuxTurrim5G, first versions of the smart poles are already in test use at Nokia Campus (Espoo, Finland) and ten new poles will be mounted still this year. The first pilot services include video surveillance, weather and air quality monitoring, navigation, infotainment and smart lighting.

"By collaborating on 5G network development we hope to enable denser environmental observations for more efficient operations in smart cities e.g. dynamic traffic routing based on fine-granular air quality information," says Erik Sucksdorff, Head of Strategy and Business Development for Vaisala Oyj's Weather and Environment Business Area."

"High-capacity connectivity through 5G is a key factor for new digital applications and services in, for example, video surveillance and information delivery. Collaborating on the 5G development offers us a unique possibility to implement our technologies to the vertical industry needs and drive realization of 5G's potential," says Ilkka Ritakallio, Director New Applications for Teleste Oyj.
