Arne Gylling talked about the Wireless Innovation Arena project, the 5G test bed and the latest updates on the 5G environment and technology and welcomed companies to conduct tests and experiments. Then Ericsson talked about 5G connected cars and the tests that were done in the 5G environment where students from Luleå University of Technology developed an RC car with 5G capacity at Ericsson Research in Luleå. There was also time for participating companies to pitch case ideas, workshop and network.
The test environment is for companies that want to develop and / or use 5G. The project can provide support, advice and validation when developing new offers. It can also contribute to research collaboration and collaboration between LTU and the research institute RISE. For those companies that are interested in testing the environment, they are welcome to contact the project via the website www.wirelessinnovationarena.se .
About the WireIess Innovation Arena project
In February 2019, the project application was submitted and after the project was adopted, the environment was inaugurated in early June and now companies have started using and testing the 5G environment. In total, four 5G workshops have been conducted in Luleå and in Skellefteå. In the future, probably in January 2020, an indoor environment for 5G will be opened.
The Wireless Innovation Arena aims to create favorable conditions for small and medium-sized companies in Upper Norrland. Together with academia, institutes, large companies, the public sector and end users, the project will develop competence and competitive products and services. An important part of the project is the 5G test environment, "5G Innovation Hub North", at Luleå University of Technology in collaboration with Telia. There, companies can easily perform different types of tests and experiments to validate new products and services.
