Sprint launched its ‘5G Experience,’ a dedicated immersive center designed to showcase and explain how 5G works. The company held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at its headquarters Thursday to unveil the space ahead of its 5G commercial service launch, expected to begin in Kansas City and other markets in May.
“We are thrilled to provide our guests and employees an exciting way to experience the future of wireless technology in a fun and educational way in our new space,” said Steve Gaffney, Sprint vice president of media and experiential marketing.
“With Sprint 5G coming soon in our first nine markets, this dedicated venue will provide unique and interactive ways to tell the story of 5G and help visitors visualize the types of innovations it will bring.”
Sprint recognized Ericsson, Intel, LG, Nokia, Qualcomm, and Samsung Electronics for their support in the project. The space features more than 12 stations and demonstrations that use augmented reality, virtual reality and simulated displays. The journey takes visitors through the foundation for 5G, from spectrum to a fiber-optics network and from Massive MIMO technology to real-world demonstrations of 5G’s lower latency. Guests will learn how 5G will help innovate gaming and entertainment, power smart cities and make cities safer, and connect billions of things through IoT.
