Future networks are the backbone of the modern economics

Finland has decided to build a private public consortium to increase the data capacity between east and west and to connect continental Europe with a high speed data network with cutting edge technology and increased ability for cyber secure communications.

Jukka-Pekka Joensuu has been appointed from 1st of May, 2014, to lead the project as executive vice president for the Corenet, an infrastructure company, and reporting to Board of Directors. Jukka-Pekka is currently working as partner and COO for a consulting company PwC.

”I find this as a fascinating opportunity to build industrial internet and create Finland a safe haven for cyber secure and reliable big data hub. As stated by Commissioner Neelie Kroes, future networks are the backbone of modern economics, and public investments play a major role in long term infrastructure investments. Competition and innovation can be promoted with open access networks and with new investments create a growth path for the Finnish and European economy. Increased connectivity enables new innovations and provides new opportunities for global companies in industrial internet”, says Jukka-Pekka Joensuu.
