Oulu’s rising technology stars in Barcelona

The Mobile World Congress 2014 gathers the biggest and most promising technology companies to Barcelona. BusinessOulu takes twelve of Oulu’s most interesting companies to this year’s Mobile World Congress, between February 24th–27th, to tell why their products and services may be the next big thing in the wireless world.

If you want mobile, you want Oulu

What brings Global ICT companies to Oulu? A man with an insider’s answer is Janne Mustonen, BusinessOulu’s Key Account Director of the ICT Sector. ”All companies with some sort of mobile strategy are looking at Oulu at the moment. In short, they need Oulu’s technological R&D know-how to boost their mobile business.”, says Mustonen.

”The companies that come to Oulu know that Oulu’s R&D ecosystem is the solution to their mobile business needs. And it’s not always the turn-key solution a company is after, even though Oulu has provided the world with numerous cutting-edge solutions over the years. Oulu’s R&D potential is so strong that I could say we can turn an idea into a product in 30 days in Oulu.”, Mustonen reveals.

Wireless technology is in our companies’ DNA

Oulu has a well-earned reputation for its outstanding radio technology expertise. In fact, about 60 % of the world’s wireless traffic runs through Oulu-based technology. However, nowadays Oulu’s technological expertise is evolving into different fields, such as Life Science, Biotechnology, Printed Intelligence, or even 3D Internet.
