Telia Company, Ericsson and Tallinn University of Technology, TalTech, have joined forces to launch Estonia’s first 5G pilot network at the university campus by year-end.
The 5G network will provide lightning fast mobile data for the whole TalTech campus, which enables the development of innovative new services and solutions, said Telia. Companies and startups are invited to use the 5G network to develop future services and new business models.
TalTech has built a self-driving car named Iseauto, which will become one of the first cooperation projects within the 5G pilot’s scope. The next milestone will come in 2019, when the project partners will showcase Iseauto driving around and communicating with the surrounding infrastructure with the help of 5G.
