Wireless for verticals
Push towards 5G has enabled new business opportunities for wireless technologies due to significantly enhanced extreme mobile broadband, due to enabling high amount of sensors to be connected with low energy consumption as well as via reliable (99,999%) transmission within 1 ms. Vertical industries can enhance their competitivity via such enablers. This talk summarizes the Wireless for Verticals (WIVE) project results over the last two years, including building enablers for 5G as well as testing the technologies together with industry verticals. Most of the focus is on 5G URLLC. WIVE is part of the 5G Test Network Finland (5GTNF).
