Dr. Juha Kalliovaara from TUAS (Turku University of Applied Sciences), co-authored with partners Nokia and Fairspectrum,  presents a paper on “Designing a Testbed Infrastructure for Experimental Validation and Trialing of 5G Vertical Applications” at the 12th EAI International Conference on Cognitive Radio Oriented Wireless Networks. http://crowncom.org/2017/show/home

This paper describes the design of a testbed for experimental validation and trialing of 5G vertical applications. It introduces the challenges that 5G aims to solve with regard to the spectrum demand and the convergence of different wireless communication services. The European-level 5G research program 5G Public Private Partnership (5G-PPP) is a coordinated European approach to secure European leadership in 5G. The 5G-PPP has developed a 5G Pan-European Trials Roadmap, which includes a comprehensive strategy for coordinated international preliminary and pre-commercial trials. The objective in designing Turku University of Applied Sciences (TUAS) testbed infrastructure in Turku, Finland, has been in building a testbed that can be used to contribute to the development, standardization and trialing of wireless communications in a diverse selection of scenarios and vertical applications. In addition, the paper describes the spectrum monitoring capabilities at TUAS facilities
