Telia Company has tested the augmented reality and 5G technology use cases in the forest industry, in partneship with Stora Enso, a pulp and paper manufacturer headquartered in Helsinki.

The solutions were tested at Stora Enso’s Oulu mill in Finland where real-time information is being used in mill maintenance. The application of augmented reality and virtual models will enable a more rapid use of, for example, maintenance information at mills. Using a virtual model of a machine and real-time data concerning information points, can improve the operational reliability of the mills.

The upcoming introduction of the 5G technology together with the computing capacity of the Telia Helsinki Data Center create a platform for services that can use AR, VR and 360o views, said the Operator.

Telia kicked off the 5G era in Finland on September 5, 2018 with the introduction of a pre-commercial 5G network in Helsinki. The goal is to launch commercial services in the beginning of 2019.

Janne Koistinen, Head of 5G Program, Telia Finland
With our pilots at Stora Enso’s Oulu mill, we have explored the area where IoTand 5G solutions will most likely produce the first breakthroughs in introducing new, more effective processes. Solutions based on the collection, transfer and analysis of real-time data are the key to renewing industrial processes.
