Telecommunication network numbers and identifiers for research, testing and educational purposes

FICORA supports the Finnish telecommunications industry by issuing numbers and identifiers for research, testing and educational purposes.
It is also possible to grant a temporary right to use numbers and identifiers in research, testing and education.

An application for testing purposes is often accompanied with a radio licence application. In such case, FICORA may issue a temporary radio licence for testing purposes together with the numbers and identifiers.

Preparing for the future with research and international cooperation

FICORA is involved in several national and international steering committees of research projects addressing new technologies and related opportunities. The aim is to ensure that there are available frequencies already for early-stage testing and research.
