    LuxTurrim5G is developing and demonstrating fast 5G network based on smart light poles with integrated antennas, base stations, sensors, screens and other devices. This joint project opens new digital services and business opportunities for a real smart city. LuxTurrim5G Key Challenges: • Smart cities need digital service infrastructure to improve safety, energy efficiency, air quality, effectivity of transportation and quality of living • However, the capacity of mobile networks will be far too insufficient due to the increasing traffic volume and new digital services built and planned • The problem can only be solved by using small cell 5G radio frequency technology & higher frequencies; this requires dense networks of antennas setting new requirements for the network infrastructure The project is a great technical challenge, but also a global service and business opportunity for the consortium members and Finnish industries. Identification of new innovative service concepts and business models are essential for the Finnish companies’ success in digitalized global economy. The goal of WP1 is to define new service and business opportunities and next generation business models for flexible and scalable outdoor 5G small-cell high-speed services utilizing light pole infrastructure. This deliverable is the state of the art analysis for setting the base line for the research and development within the LuxTurrim5G project. The deliverable is presenting the State-of-the-art in relevant telecom & light pole global markets, as well as relation to past and ongoing projects. This study identifies what are the key market areas in smart city context related to LuxTurrim5G project. This deliverable is based on the literature findings, consortium partners’ case studies, and individual expertise. LuxTurrim5G is a 2.5 year project started 2017 including 9 companies and 3 research institutes. The project is funded by the consortium partners and Business Finland.
