5G and the everyday challenges of industry
5G VIIMA project explores how 5G technology is suited for industrial use rather than personal services. The companies involved in the project provide real industrial environments and a lot of industrial real-life challenges, such as logistics, security, maintenance, guidance and flow optimization. Altogether four test areas are used in industrial environments. In Oulu, these test areas are the port and base station factory. In Tampere, the test area for port equipment, and in Espoo, the electricity grid in Otaniemi. In each and everyone, a 5G network is made locally. The two-year project is coordinated by the University of Oulu.
