Wide Market with Smart Solutions

The LuxTurrim5G ecosystem, which has aroused widespread international interest, is contributing to one of the event major themes, smart cities. LuxTurrim5G helps cities to tackle the challenges of urbanisation and climate change, and to boost sustainable development, enabling their digital transformation into thriving smart cities.

This innovative Luxturrim5G project has been covered previously in Tehomet News in June: The first pre-commercial version of the smart pole is ready.
