An important gateway to the global market for the smart city offering developed within the LuxTurrim5G ecosystem will be opened at the Expo 2020 Dubai, launching in October. In the event, the LuxTurrim5G concept and two functional smart poles will be showcased together with Nokia and Tehomet, Orbis, Teleste, Vaisala, Indagon, L7 Drive, Link Design, VTT and Spinverse. Spinverse has been part of the ecosystem since its very start, taking care of the ecosystem leadership and project coordination.
The LuxTurrim5G ecosystem has ignited a lot of interest both in Finland and around the world. The development of the modular smart pole, related elements and several digital services has been completed and the consortium is aiming for more extensive pilots in real urban environments. Readiness for smart pole deliveries has been fine-tuned not only with technical development in mind, but also various business models have been prepared.
Principal Consultant, Ecosystem Leader, D.Sc. (Tech.) Markku Heino from Spinverse is very excited of this important milestone for the LuxTurrim5G ecosystem. He says: “We at Spinverse are very proud of this vibrant ecosystem that we have had the privilege to lead. It has been a unique opportunity to build it together with the ecosystem partners. Now we are ready to share the significant results of hard joint work to global audiences, showcasing our pioneering solutions for smarter and safer cities at the Dubai Expo and beyond.”
