5G Finnish Open Research Collaboration Ecosystem
Finnish mobile innovation and research strength has been based on cooperation and smart combination of diversified resources. Building on the multiple research projects and tight cooperation between academia and industry brings Finnish researchers to the edge of mobile technologies. In this project we intend to create the easily accessible testing platform and environment for all 5G and Beyond 5G research as well act as a coordinator and hub of 5G research ecosystem in Finland. In 5G Finnish Open search ecosystem we bring multidisciplinary competences on radio, networking, computer science, IT, cloud technologies and new IoT services to cooperate and bear on the opportunities that make use the new technology to lead research in 5G and 6G mobile networks. This type of a large project is required for the industry to be able to maintain its competitive advantage
