Ukkoverkot plans to repurpose 450 MHz network as private micro-network

Monday 17 December 2018 | 13:22 CET | News
Finnish operator Ukkoverkot said ahead of its 19 December EGM that it has decided to concentrate on connectivity services for industrial customers such as large-scale manufacturers, ports, airports, heavy industry and mines. In the statement of events after its most recent financial results, it said the connectivity needs of industrial and security-critical organisations must increasingly be based on local private micro networks operating on their own radio frequencies for 4G and 5G. It has therefore decided to re-purpose the national 450 MHz network as a targeted, private micro network.
