Today, Fiskarheden, one of Sweden’s most modern and largest private sawmills, is announcing a contract to build a private 5G network based on a solution from Radtonics, the challenger in the industrial private 5G network market. As part of the agreement, Radtonics will deliver the 5G build-out at the Fiskarheden facility in Transtrand, Sweden. Following the deregulation of the private 5G market in Sweden in early 2022, Fiskarheden is one of the first companies in Sweden to take advantage of this and build its own network.
We see that now is the time for private 5G network to become the foundation for our high-quality industrial networkSven Erik Andersson, CIO at Fiskarheden
With the 5G network, Fiskarheden will take the next step in digitalisation and achieve use cases not possible in their existing WIFI network. The 5G network will provide a solution enabling Fiskarheden to be one of Europe’s top 5 most digitalised sawmills. Technological transformations plays a vital role in Fiskarheden to achieve efficient and sustainable production and a safe workplace.
“At Fiskarheden, we are committed to being a leader in digitalisation. By taking the step to implement a 5G network and through the partnership with Radtonics, we are excited about the possibilities ahead. We have previously been working with other solutions. Still, we see that now is the time for private 5G network to become the foundation for our high-quality industrial network,” Sven Erik Andersson, CIO at Fiskarheden, comments on the project.
Radtonics, a Swedish-based company with global ambitions, has developed a unique solution for private industrial networks for 5G, thus enabling high-quality industrial networks to be built in an easy, automated, and affordable way.
“We are very proud to be selected by Fiskarheden to design and build this private 5G network“, says Patric Lind, CEO and co-founder of Radtonics. “The unique solution we will deliver, with the integration of 5G radio, is targeting industrial networks. As it’s now possible to build private 5G networks also in Sweden, we see a similar need from many enterprises in the Swedish market,” Patric Lind continues
For the 5G network for Fiskarheden, Radtonics will design and build the 5G network leveraging technology from Airspan Networks, a leading LTE/5G RAN hardware and software vendor with more than 100 private networks deployed world-wide.
“We are excited to collaborate with Radtonics in delivering a 5G network to the Fiskarheden facility. 5G for business, specifically in industrial applications such as this, has a huge potential to increase innovation and efficiency for many organizations,” said Henrik Smith-Petersen, CSMO at Airspan.
Private 5G networks is a global trend fundamentally changing the possibilities for enterprises to enable industrial use cases based on 5G technology. From the beginning of 2022, this has also become possible for Sweden through a decision by Post och Telestyrelsen to allow local 5G networks in the 3760-3800 Mhz band.
Besides having a whole forestry department and one of Sweden’s most modern sawmills that literally can see the timber’s true quality, Fiskarheden has a sincere ambition to develop the sustainable resource that the forest is, beyond timber, paper and energy.
