5G Momentum is a giant leap forward on Finland’s path to becoming the 5G technology leader

The 5G Momentum ecosystem was created to enable Finland to reach its goal of becoming number one in 5G technology. Through experiments in the ecosystem, we can gain expertise in 5G, learn to identify future opportunities and facilitate collaboration. 5G Momentum accelerates the development of new innovative services for consumers, companies and public administration alike.

The 5G Momentum ecosystem is a new collaborative network for 5G experiments. The cross-sectoral collaboration enables fast and agile development of high-speed electronic communications services.

5G Momentum is the shared project of government agencies in the administrative sector of the Ministry of Transport and Communications. FICORA coordinates the project. The project partners, FICORA, the Finnish Transport Safety Agency, the Finnish Transport Agency and the Finnish Meteorological Institute, are also looking for ways to develop their own operations and regulation in their administrative sector.

Why Finland is the perfect environment for 5G test projects

Also organizations from outside Finland are welcome to join the network. Finland's pro-trialling legislation and flexible regulation make it a fertile ground for 5G experiments. Moreover, Finland boasts comprehensive and advanced mobile networks that fare well in international comparison.

5G communications networks enable new types of services

Scheduled for commercial deployment in 2020, 5G mobile network technology is a high-performance wireless communications platform designed for the ongoing digital revolution. It enables fast and smooth access to the internet for devices, services and systems. The key benefits of 5G technology are its high capacity, short delays and low energy consumption.

Fast and reliable M2M communications make possible the development of completely new applications for the needs of, for example, communications, transport, robotics, and automation. Also the health sector, energy production and logistics require new secure real-time services with minimal delay.

The new electronic services created through experimenting in the 5G Momentum ecosystem will benefit consumers, companies, research facilities, municipalities, cities and government organisations alike.

5G Momentum seminar, June 1, 2018

The first 5G ecosystem event took place on June 1, 2018 .

The event brought together professionals interested in 5G testing and technology, and more than 50 organisations expressed their interest in joining the ecosystem.

You can find the video of the event on YouTube. Follow this link to watch the video.

Ecosystem growing fast

Preparations for some of the 5G Momentum experimentations are already underway, and the team will contact the interested organisations over the course of the summer.

The ecosystem will get into full swing in the autumn, when the pilots start.
