5G

The next generation of mobile communication

The next generation of mobile communication promises to change everything. It won't just be much faster. It will also respond in real time and enable applications that we can only dream of now. Together with our partners Ericsson and the Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne, we are driving forward the next generation of mobile communication with our "5G for Switzerland" programme. The results will be incorporated into the definition of international standards for 5G, with completion planned for 2019.
