The 5G Joint Innovation Center – a big success!
The first European 5G Joint Innovation Center at Ambassador House in Zurich

Sunrise and its strategic partner Huawei are opening the first 5G Joint Innovation Center (JIC) in Europe, so that the two companies can work together to research and develop 5G applications for both the private and business sectors.

The 5G Joint Innovation Center (JIC) was open from October 14 through November 8. The Center promotes the establishment of a Swiss 5G ecosystem in which Sunrise and Huawei present 5G applications for private and business customers live. These applications have either already been launched or they are about to launch commercially. The Innovation Center proved popular with the press, distribution partners, and business customers who visit the JIC regularly in order to test applications and to inform themselves.

  • Speeds of up to 10 Gbit/s can be a reality thanks to the new LAN and Wi-Fi infrastructure, which is connected to ultra HD cameras, monitors, sensors and other devices. In the future, the internal infrastructure and Sunrise’s 5G network will make smart stadium experiences possible at St. Jakob-Park, and provide audiences attending FCB’s home games with significant added value through instant replays, multi-camera features, virtual stadium visits, and more fan engagement opportunities.
