Two great workshop days were spent in Luleå with new inputs and business ideas on 5G and edge datacenters. First day we had keynotes and panel discussions. Second day was study visits to the ICE and the 5G testbed and then group work to find more business together.

The workshop concept with LTU and RISE together with Datacenter companies meeting in an IMasons context was proven to be fruitful so we have started planning for the next event. In this specific event we had the datacenter industry meet the mobile industry. In the next winter event OCP will meet Telcos and in the next summer event the AI industry will meet the datacenter industry.

The keynotes were by Magnus Frodigh, Ericsson, Peter Burman, Boliden and Daniel Enström, Mobilaris all about the needs for edge datacenters. In the panels we had Fredrik Engström, Vattenfall, Mats Lundbäck, Telia joining Magnus and Daniel on enabling the edge and Duncan Clubb, CBRE, Christoph Goertz, Detecon, Jason Rolands, German edge cloud and Mats Eriksson, ArcticLabs on implementing the edge.
