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.
