The Finnish 5G test network (5GTN) is built to support development and analysis of 5G technologies and new services on top of them. 5GTN includes a holistic monitoring and test generation architecture, enabling generation and collection of diverse test and datasets, analyzing the results and using these as basis for developing new technologies, algorithms, services, and optimizations. Both the combined network and service parameters space, as well as data volume, provide us with several big data problems. In this paper, we describe the overall system architecture, the types of data we collect, the initial analysis we have performed on the data, and what we have learned so far. The network is constantly evolving with new services integrated and tested, and new big data analytics being applied as we learn from our tests. As such, these are preliminary results for ongoing work.
