The first European 5G Joint Innovation Center at Ambassador House in Zurich

Experience tangible 5G applications and pilot projects

The Joint Innovation Center

Sunrise and our strategic partner Huawei present the first European 5G Joint Innovation Center (JIC) in Zurich. Together, we are developing and promoting 5G and IoT applications for private and business customers. For further information or to arrange a tour, please contact your account manager or get in touch with us directly.




Pioneering, hands-on 5G projects

Learn from the experiences of the first pilot projects and draw inspiration from real use cases. The 5G Innovation Center (JIC) promotes the development of a Switzerland-wide 5G ecosystem and allows you to experience innovative applications for private and business customers which have already been launched or are about to be commercialized. 


The Open Lab 5G Community

5G Open Lab offers a test environment for developing new applications and prototypes under real-life conditions in an end-to-end 5G network. Here, the Innovation Center brings together business customers, solution partners, start-ups, and a growing community of developers. It also serves as a meeting point for the media, associations, as well as organizations.

Go beyond what’s already possible today

The fifth generation of mobile communication and the Internet of Things make completely new customer experiences, automated processes, and new business models possible. The JIC will not only show you what’s possible now, but also offers room for new ideas. Together, we develop new applications – from the first idea through to your next steps in the digital transformation and the actual solution. Here, knowledge gained from pilot projects, methodological expertise, an understanding of business, and a hands-on mentality come together in a productive way. 


5G solutions and examples

Smart Farming
Saving resources and protecting the environment: Agriculture is faced with the demand of reducing the use of fertilizers and pesticides to the greatest possible extent, of placing even greater focus on animal welfare, and of increasing the efficiency of production.
Smart Stadion
Redefining how we experience sports: Up to now, there are only two options of attending a football match: either live in the stadium or in front of the TV. With the Sunrise 5G network, a new LAN and Wi-Fi infrastructure will make stadium experiences at St. Jakob-Park in Basel possible.
Smart Manufacturing
Anticipatory production control: The international industrial company GF Machining Solutions focuses on high-precision manufacturing technologies, to make machines with which other companies then manufacture products or components.
