First 5G workshop in Luleå

Published: 8 February 2019

Wireless Innovation Arena is a newly started project that builds an innovation and test environment for the fifth generation mobile network (5G) at Luleå University of Technology campus in Luleå.

At a meeting in Vetenskapens Hus in Luleå, the university together with Ericsson told us about the possibilities of the 5G technology and how the work with the test environment is laid out. Some 60 participants met at this first meeting.

-It feels great that so many people took the opportunity to network and get a picture of what 5G is, what opportunities are offered and what we can contribute with in our project, says Karl Andersson, assistant professor and project manager at CDT at Luleå University of Technology.

-This is the starting point for our newly started project Wireless Innovation Arena, which invites companies, large and small, to work in the test environment that is now being established on the campus area, Karl continues.

-We told the audience about the intended location of our first base station, how the terminals might look and how our process for joining the work is organized, adds Arne Gylling, project manager at CDT.

-It will be very exciting to see what ideas will be tested in our 5G environment, says Michael Nilsson, project manager at CDT.
