    The Finnish 5G test network (5GTN) supports development of new network technologies, and services and applications on top of these. It is developed and operated in collaboration with partners from different domains such as research, telecommunications, internet of things, software services, and data analytics. 5GTN is designed to support building products and services on top of latest and upcoming network technologies. A current example of this is exploring opportunities for new services, and impacts from 5G technologies, such as higher datarates, lower delays, and dense deployments. In this paper, we describe a set of use cases from different domain verticals, built on top of 5GTN, and the experiences so far from those use cases.
