Orbis joined the LuxTurrim5G project in fall 2019. In the project, led by Nokia, several companies and research institutes jointly developed smart poles. Within two years, a pre-commercial smart pole family was completed, and a common application platform enables the utilization of data and services provided by the smart pole network.
Orbis participates Expo 2020 Dubai together with LuxTurrim5G ecosystem in the Finland Pavilion.
Exhibition is open from 01 October 2021 to 31 March 2022.
The collaboration within the Nokia-driven LuxTurrim5G ecosystem has progressed nicely despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The extensive company consortium developing a digital backbone for the Smart City has now reached an important milestone when its key element, 5G smart pole, has progressed from development stage into pre-commercial product. It is in fact a product family of smart poles, which can meet the various needs of cities.
A company consortium led by Nokia is targeting the global smart city markets, worth tens of billions of euros. The LuxTurrim5G ecosystem has just completed a one-of-a-kind piloting environment that boosts the development of new data-driven services for cities both in Finland and abroad. It covers the route from Nokia HQ Campus in Espoo, Finland, to the near-by Kera railway station.
LuxTurrim5G ecosystem is developing its smart pole concept towards commercialization within two years. The joint effort of several companies and research institutions is proceeding well, and in May 2020 a pilot route of 15 smart poles will be completed in Kera, Espoo. Orbis Oy is responsible for the cabling, connections and assembly of the poles, which means active spring for the Orbis crew.
