    Positioning in general will play an important role in future 5G networks by enabling a vast amount of different location-based services and applications. To offer enriched end-user information and more efficient network performance, location information becomes increasingly more important especially indoors. Therefore, we have designed and implemented an indoor positioning platform to support the development of foreseen location based 5G network functionalities and services. This paper presents the overall system architecture, linkage to the 5G Test Network Finland, and initial trial results with different positioning methods.
