5G Momentum ecosystem enables Finnish leadership in 5G


Port Oulu Smarter Digitalisation Project Wins 5G Innovation Award

The 5G Innovation Award recognises Finnish 5G innovators whose excellence adds value or stimulates the creation of new 5G products and services. The innovative and highly scalable Port Oulu Smarter digitalisation project was selected as the winner. Honourable mentions went to the LuxTurrim5G ecosystem for bringing visibility to 5G and to an innovative 5G solution for organising remote medical consultations and group education.

5G Momentum boosts new trials and solutions

The 5G Momentum is an ecosystem established in 2018 to enable Finland to reach its goal of becoming the world leader in 5G technology. The ecosystem promotes the development and implementation of 5G services by creating a new type of cooperation network for 5G trials. Trials and tests aims at facilitating new services and innovations based on 5G technology. Another objective is to identify challenges related to the 5G environment and make Finnish 5G know-how visible. 5G Momentum is managed by the government agencies in the administrative sector of the Ministry of Transport and Communications, including Traficom, which coordinates the project, the Finnish Meteorological Institute and the Finnish Transport Infrastructure Agency.

Why is the time for 5G now?

5G technology facilitates new services and solutions for various sectors, like industry, healthcare and transport. It brings us increased efficiency, enormous capacity to transfer data at low cost, and almost real-time data transfer. Real-time data transfer gives new opportunities to create tailored services for robotics, artificial intelligence or augmented reality.
