Aalto University and Ericsson receive frequency licences for 5G research and developmentPublished 23.02.2016
The test licence granted to Aalto University enables using radio transmitters in a 5G test network in Otaniemi, which is part of the Tekes-funded research project TAKE-5 (5th Evolution Take of Wireless Communication Network). Ericsson's research focuses on the use of higher frequencies and greater bandwidths in Jorvas.
5G is 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. FICORA promotes the research and development of 5G technology in Finland by granting test licences to both Finnish and international companies as well as research and educational institutions. Providing a framework for test use is important for ensuring that Finland remains a leading country in the development of mobile communication technology.
