VIDEO: Telia to Launch First 5G Test Network in Estonia on Passenger Ship Tallink Europa

5G radio network has been built on Tallink’s cruise ship Silja Europa to test the new technology in September. The 5G network will replace the fiber optic cable that is connected with the ship upon docking with the purpose of improving the connectivity during increased data traffic that occurs when the ship is docked.

Previous tests show that 5G technology is perfect for handling large data traffic. Additionally, excellent connectivity is available throughout the ship when it enters the port’s waters, i.e. before the ship is actually docked.
