Telia Company, Ericsson and KTH Royal Institute of Technology launched a 5G network on the KTH campus in Stockholm that will serve as an innovation and research platform for the academia and partner companies.

Sweden’s first 5G network is using a test license and will serve as a testbed for developing innovative new solutions and services. It is the latest result of the strategic partnership between Telia and Ericsson, and it will further strengthen the two companies’ cooperation with institutions of higher learning. Earlier this year Ericsson revealed a similar 5G plan with Telia Estonia at the Tallinn University of Technology.

“This is the first 5G network in Sweden using commercial and standardized radio and core products. This project serves as an important step toward launching early commercial 5G services. Building a 5G network in one of Sweden’s most creative environments, the KTH campus, demonstrates Ericsson’s and Telia Company’s joint commitment to drive innovation,” said Börje Ekholm, President and CEO, Ericsson.

The KTH campus is exploring vital 5G areas such as autonomous transportation, Internet of Things (IoT), smart buildings and city infrastructure, industry automation and remote VR, making it a natural choice to host this project.
