The project will participate in the Arctic Congress in Bodø, which will take place from 29 May to 3 June 2024. The event is organised by Nordland Research Institute and Nord University. Bringing together three conferences in Bodø – European Capital of Culture 2024 - will be an exceptional showcase of Arctic cooperation. The Arctic 6G project session number is 4.0.12, and the title is "People of the North: Connecting the Unconnected in the Arctic”. We invite relevant stakeholders to the call for abstracts for the session and ask you to submit a valuable contribution by the deadline of 5 January, 2024. Further details can be found in the document attached below.
A 6G Flagship team and the Arctic 6G project conducted Starlink feasibility measurements between Oulu and Finland's eastern border in Suomussalmi. The goal was to see if Starlink could be deployed in a typical Finnish country house/remote cabin; this was the case. The selected locations ranged from open areas to forested areas, although the trees were rather small and the forest was not very dense. Starlink delivered downlink data rates of over 100 Mbps, about 65 Mbps in more forested areas, and uplink data rates of 15 to 40 Mbps. Connection initialization time varied from under 10 minutes to 15 minutes; it should be noted that Starlink satellite density over Finland is very low. Near the Russian border, the connection failed because the Russian territory is not served by Starlink and these beams also cover parts of Finland.
Our Interreg Aurora project Arctic 6G is meeting for its third workshop, this time in Luleå. It was nice to meet all colleagues from the University of Oulu, Lapland University of Applied Sciences and Luleå University of Technology to discuss progress so far and plan our future activities. It is also nice to see that our public webinar “Exploring Future 5G/6G Opportunities” is attracting a lot of interest from different stakeholders.
Welcome to our webinar dedicated to the latest technological advances and innovations in the field of telecommunications. Join us as renowned experts and researchers share their insights on topics such as machine connectivity in remote areas, 5G vehicle winter testing for smart traffic and road weather services, access to remote areas using windmill towers, sensor capabilities in 6G and the ongoing Hexa-X- II project to explore the future of 6G.
The project held a productive meeting in Oulu, Finland, on April 4-5, 2023. The team addressed a variety of critical issues, including key rural wireless technologies, societal needs and innovation, Internet availability, and the need for Sapmi connectivity. The team also addressed important topics such as demonstrations and measurements, IoT device location, tracking and authentication, low-power local 6G access solutions, and cybersecurity in 6G networks.
This year's edition of the 5G/6G Technical webinar brings recent technical development and contributions in the Bothnian Bay region. Welcome!
When: February 9, 2023, 9-11 (CET)
The new project, Arctic 6G, coordinated by Luleå University of Technology, will develop new technology to secure the future of connection in northern Sweden and Finland.
During this half day you will be inspired by one of our best hockey players of all time, the innovator of the year and one of Sweden's most equal workplaces. Hear how to challenge gender roles in the beer industry, "inside leadership", effective self-leadership and unconsciously exclusionary expression.
Thank you to everyone who participated during the Arctic Challenge Hackathon! Over three days, students, researchers and developers solved business problems in IoT, Edge computing, 5G and information security.
