Nokia, together with a multidisciplinary group of companies and research groups, is creating the digital backbone of the smart city and new data-based services. In the second phase of the LuxTurrim5G ecosystem projects, the recently developed 5G smart pole concept is moving towards productization and practical piloting. Another major goal is to create a platform utilizing a wide variety of data in a reliable and secured way and develop new digital services to meet real needs of cities. This includes also evaluating and piloting of a Neutral host operating model for high-speed city networks. Through a two-year, EUR 26 million, intensive co-development effort the group of 26 partners target the global smart city markets worth tens of billions euros.
After the successful proof-of-concept development phase of the 5G smart pole which integrates 5G base stations, weather and air quality sensors, video cameras, displays and other devices to light poles LuxTurrim5G ecosystem will now move on to the next level. The second phase, consisting of two highly interlinked projects (LuxTurrim5G+ and Neutral Host Pilot) and bringing together +100 key experts of 26 partner organizations in active joint development, was kicked off beginning of September. A key target of LuxTurrim5G+ (already confirmed funding by Business Finland) is now to prepare the smart pole concept for productization and wider pilot implementations both in Finland and globally.
LuxTurrim5G pilot environment is continuously hosting plenty of expert visitors and visitor groups representing key stakeholders globally regarding 5G, smart city, and sustainable development. Nokia held one of its annual key customers meetings September 24-26.2019 in Espoo. Roughly 80 Nokia customers visited LuxTurrim5G smart city and Sensible4 robot bus demos.
The pilot program for Sensible4’s self-driving shuttle bus GACHA has begun in Kera, Espoo as part of LuxTurrim5G ecosystem developing new 5G smart city solutions.
United Nations (UN) has created the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) to tackle the grand challenges and guide the sustainable development and business activities globally. City of Espoo was chosen to be the first lead city in implementing the 17 SDGs by 2025 because of its ability to combine entrepreneurial success with environmental and societal excellence. Winning global awards on a regular basis has highlighted the ability of Finland’s second largest city to reinvent itself, providing the best for its citizens and for nature. Espoo’s operations will focus on learning, education and innovation.
Nokia Bell Labs driven industry group is building key enablers for fast 5G network based on smart light poles, which will form the digital backbone of future smart cities. The LuxTurrim5G ecosystem project has developed the 5G smart pole concept where 5G base stations, a variety of different sensors, video cameras, displays and other devices have been integrated to light poles. This creates a novel platform providing fast, low latency mobile communications and possibilities to exploit huge amount of data to make new digital services for smart cities. The solutions have been piloted already during last two years at Nokia Campus in Espoo, Finland, and now the plans are to expand the piloting to real environment in Kera region of Espoo.
Students and developers all over Europe took part in the 48-hour hackathon at Aalto University in Espoo. Over 100 students and developers participated in the IoThon hackathon to create new 5G enabled IoT innovations. The most popular challenge was set by Nokia: 17 out of 27 teams developed new digital services and business opportunities for smart LuxTurrim5G light poles.
The LuxTurrim5G Smart Light Pole concept, based on 5G small cells integrated to smart light poles together with selected sensors and related services, have been demonstrated in field trials. Recently two new versions of integrated Smart Light Poles have been built and implemented as part of the test network at Nokia campus in Espoo, now consisting of four smart 5G light poles in operation, smart bus stop, active displays, electric car charging unit and a separate weather station.
Teleste has built a smart and safe bus stop at the Nokia Campus in Espoo, Finland, as a part of the LuxTurrim5G ecosystem. The innovative bus stop has been designed to improve safety and security for public places through Teleste’s newly launched Connected Zone concept that was introduced in October during Teleste’s Security Seminar in Sweden, where the concept will continue to be developed and tested as a part of Teleste’s Smart City offering.
LuxTurrim5G will be present at the 5GTNF (5G TEST NETWORK FINLAND) demo seminar 15.11.2018 in Aalto University (A-grid Otakaari 5 A, 02150 Espoo) to showcase our recent findings and results as poster presentations, videos and various demos.
Visit the booth of Lammin Windows at the FinnBuild 2018 event during October 10-12, and learn how their new 5G ready Signal Window enables outdoor/indoor connectivity of the emerging 5G telecom networks. You can also take part in the Lammin Smart City Challenge and open your own window to the future.
LuxTurrim5G consortium organized 6th intensive project workshop day at Teleste in Turku 22.8.2018. The event gathered together over 40 experts from the project organisations to discuss and share new ideas regarding the wide range of technical developments being made and business opportunities for smart city.
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 gilt als das „nächste große Ding“ im Mobilfunk. Riesige Datenmengen sollen etwa selbstfahrende Autos ermöglichen. Notwendig sind dazu sehr viel mehr Sendemasten als früher. Sie könnten in „smarte Laternen“ stecken, wie sie gerade in Finnland getestet werden.
LuxTurrim5G ecosystem run by Nokia Bell Labs was in a strong role to support City of Espoo to receive the 2018 Intelligent Community of the Year award given by the Intelligent Community Forum at its Global Summit in London June 6, 2018.

Come and meet the Finnish 5G R&D ecosystem and LuxTurrim5G project partners in the Mobile World Congress 2018
LuxTurrim5G, the Nokia Bell Labs driven collaborative ecosystem project coordinated by Spinverse, enabled Espoo City to reach the finals of the Intelligent Community of 2018 contest. The Intelligent Community Forum (ICF) announced the seven finalists on the 8th of February in New York. The think tank describes the finalists as cities that have done the leap from Smart Cities to Intelligent Communities.
Nokian johdolla testataan 5G-verkkoa älypalveluiden tuottamisessa
Nokia Bell Labs driven LuxTurrim5G ecosystem project coordinated by Spinverse is proceeding well and with high speed. This ambitious and multidisciplinary R&D project with 9 companies and 3 research institutes will bring fast 5G networks to street level and enable new digital services via smart light poles with integrated antennas, screens and a set of different sensors. First demos were shown at the event and piloting in Espoo starts soon as the first smart light poles are being mounted at Nokia Campus next week.
Single 5G network based on smart light poles opens new services and business. An industry group driven by Nokia Bell Labs builds concrete enablers for a future smart city with an ambitious three-year joint project called LuxTurrim5G. The project will bring big data capacity available to companies and users through a network of smart light poles, which include antennas and base stations for the novel fast 5G networks.
