Nokia receives the first frequency licence for 5G testing in Finland

Published 22.10.2015

FICORA has granted Nokia Oyj the first test licence for product development, research and testing of 5G. The test licence covers several frequency bands in Espoo and Oulu.

5G is expected to meet the requirements and needs of many different user groups of wireless communications with regard to, for instance, mobility, higher data speed, better reliability, security and energy efficiency.

5G is also one of the spurs to digitalisation as 5G networks are used by many industrial and traffic-related systems and applications besides the traditional user groups of mobile networks. The continuous growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine to Machine (M2M) communication boosts the development of 5G.
