Swiss operator Sunrise is going live with its second 5G network at Crap Sogn Gion and the LAAX ski resort.
Sunrise is providing Crap Sogn Gion and the LAAX resort with 5G antennas in the 3.5-GHz frequency range. The simplest type of 8x8 MIMO antenna now allows devices to reach bandwidths of over 300 Mbit/s. Once MIMO technologies with 32x32 and 64x64 antennas are used commercially, these devices will be able to reach bandwidths of over 1 Gbit/s, says Sunrise.
An increasing number of people planning skiing trips are now interested in taking virtual tours of their resort in advance. 360-degree live broadcasts of top events, including drone images, put prospective visitors in the mood for a skiing vacation. It may also soon be possible to take part in virtual ski courses, meaning guests will already have a good idea of how to maneuver on the slopes before they arrive.
