Smart cities need digital service infrastructure to improve safety, energy efficiency, air quality, effectivity of transportation and quality of living. However, the capacity of mobile networks will be far too insufficient due to the increased number of users and new digital services built and planned.
LuxTurrim5G is developing and demonstrating single fast 5G network based on smart light poles with integrated antennas, base stations, sensors, screens and other devices. This joint project opens new digital services and business opportunities for a real smart city.
The problem of insufficient network capacity can only be solved by using small cell 5G radio frequency technology & higher frequencies; this requires dense networks of antennas setting new requirements for the network infrastructure.
LuxTurrim5G is a highly multi-disciplinary joint R&D project developing composite and antenna materials, smart light pole design, miniaturized 5G base stations and integrated sensors.
How we reached the goals
Spinverse facilitated the building of the multi-disciplinary project, and prepared the joint research plan. We take comprehensively care of project management and leadership, supporting the project coordinator (Nokia Bell Labs). We also help in technical steering, internal and external communications, events as well as boosting cooperation and assisting in reporting.
The project creates novel open access digital services, business models and ecosystem, developing & piloting key technical solutions and concept for smart light pole based 5G infrastructure, and business & service innovations. Outcomes include pilot services on navigation, information sharing & advertisement, weather monitoring and smart lighting.
