5g test network / VTT
5G Test Network is facility for R&D and testing in a realistic 5G network environment, and it is located at the premises of VTT and University of Oulu. Fully functioning, it will form a dynamic and heterogeneous platform for developing and testing new applications, services, algorithms, technologies, and systems. Full-scale 5G test network will support using 5G devices, higher frequency bands, cognitive management functionalities, system testing tools for new solutions. The 5G Test Network feature evolution follows 5G research and standardization progress, acting as verification platform for theoretical 5G research. Parts of the network are offered as open test environments for third parties.
5G Test Network consists of two network sites: at VTT's restricted network, companies can test the functionality of their technologies, tools, and applications in a controlled environment. In the public network at University of Oulu, solutions such as those for the large-scale deployment of user devices can be verified. Moreover, the test network will be expanded to cover different parts of the city of Oulu on more open basis.
