Neutral Wireless are pleased to have supported the DCMS 5G Edge-XR demonstrations with the setup of a 5G SA private network on band n77, showcasing new and innovative ways of watching and experiencing sport.

The 5G Edge-XR project is poised to provide sports fans with an immersive extended reality (XR) which can include data overlays, projections, and alternative viewpoints and commentaries — all of which are to be delivered over a 5G network.

5G Edge XR is an exciting project featuring new applications for engagement and interaction for sports events.  Our team is very pleased to have had the opportunity to augment the 5G connectivity used for the demonstrators from the project.
