5G Services

Arctic15, June 5-6, Helsinki

5G will lead the technological revolution in the coming years, and it’s bound to change industries in unforeseen ways. No one knows exactly what the leading 5G services will be, and that’s why co-operation between companies, startups, operators, and researchers is crucial in finding out what the future looks like.

Imagine, for, example, a future without buggy teleconferences but instead, with real-time calls on VR. That’s not all – imagine having control of machines at manufacturing facilities regardless of your whereabouts. 5G offers even more advanced ways to connect with humans, devices, and systems for enhanced efficiency and communication.
