The main goal of the project is to get small and medium-sized companies in the region to expand their markets within the 5G area. Through collaboration and partnerships, the companies should be able to offer competitive, innovative and high quality products, services and solutions within the 5G area.
– In addition, collaboration between companies and universities must be deepened, says Karl Andersson.
– The aim is to make the partners constitute a powerful Arctic 5G node that attracts large-scale research and development projects within 5G.
Oulu University, like Luleå University of Technology, has a test environment for 5G. In the project, the two 5G test networks will be interconnected, the interconnection will enable cross-border testing and increase the overall testing possibilities in the 5G networks. In addition to scientific experiments, the industry will also benefit from the improved test environment.
For Luleå University of Technology, the project includes 5G research in relation to artificial intelligence and edge computing .
– The 5G technology sets new and higher requirements in several different areas. We hope for a long-term cooperation with the University of Oulu that can contribute positively to the development of new 5G technology, concludes Karl Andersson.
