The Swedish Post and Telecom Authority (PTS) has granted permission for 5G testing to be used by WASP Autonomous Research Arenas. The 5G network will be set up in a collaboration with WASP and Ericsson will be the provider of the network equipment. The permission has been approved for the research and testing facility AstaZero, owned by RISE and Chalmers University of Technology. AstaZero is a testing facility for road safety which allows for testing of autonomous vehicles on site.

This is the first permission granted for usage of the complete frequency band of 3,4 – 3,6 GHz. The frequencies have been indicated as a pioneer band for 5G in Europe by work that the PTS previously has overseen. The permit allows for 200 MHz and is valid from January 1st 2018 to December 31st 2019.
