Immerse in 5G at Slush

Home to the 5G network, Oulu will make it possible for the international technology community at Slush to live and enjoy the true 5G experience.

At the Oulu stand in Slush, the audience will have an opportunity to experience the power and speed of the virtual and augmented 5G reality. The demos will showcase the potential for remote presence and interaction with the surrounding world by means of sensors enabled by 5G. 

“We will implement an experiential virtual reality where the Slush audience will also have the opportunity to peek into the future in a live 360° view using virtual glasses and tablets and – what is most important – to see there the opportunities present in their own technology and business,” says Olli Liinamaa, Project Lead of the 5G Test Network.

From 30 November to 1 December, the word-class technology event Slush will bring together international start-up entrepreneurs, investors and academic audience in the technology sector in Helsinki.

The participating companies will build a state-of-the-art experience around wearable intelligence, mobile sensors and content projected on smart films. The pioneers and specialists from Oulu will spar the innovations of those visiting the stand.

“From Slush, these is a short distance to Oulu that currently offers the world's only open 5G test network, 5GTN, to which we welcome companies to join us at the heart of 5G co-creation to develop wireless technology through world-class research," Liinamaa continues, announcing his invitation to companies.
Slush gives a foretaste of the new 5GTN Community service environment that is to be opened to companies fairly soon. Follow the news.

The 5G experience is provided by Oulu’s unprecedented ecosystem, comprising the Centre for Wireless Communications (CWC) of the University of Oulu, Business Oulu and Oulu-based businesses at their joint stand in hall 7. The highly popular and impressive Slush awaits more than 17,000 participants.
