Augmented / Virtual Reality and 5G

5G is expected to offer high coverage and capacity to boost speeds and reduce latency dramatically, all of which is critical for AR and VR applications. The prospect of lower data transmission costs is perceived to be an added advantage of 5G. There is a significant overlap between the requirements of AR/VR and the capabilities and functionality that 5G promises, especially with respect to the speed and latency benefits. Hence, 5G is a key business driver for the long-term development of AR/VR.

5G will not only improve but will also become a necessity for some of the most innovative and advanced AR and VR applications. There is a significant overlap between the requirements of AR/VR and the capabilities and functionality that 5G promises, especially with respect to the speed and latency benefits. Hence, 5G is a key business driver for the long-term development of AR/VR.  Speed of 5G in downloading huge video files in seconds supports significant advances in virtual reality.

Currently   5G stands as the best solution to meet the broadest range of needs for AR/VR and across the widest breadth of users and enterprises.

5G will comfortably support AR/VR at scale. That will trigger not just how people play games but transform businesses which need personal presence such as education and healthcare.

5G is a key enabler, enabling cloud AR/VR to help solve device and cost constraints obstructing AR and VR. 5G will also enable many educational and healthcare use cases powered by AR/VR.

With 5G technology, cloud computing will eventually be able to fully capitalize on augmented reality through the highly anticipated AR Cloud that will completely change our interaction with the physical world and create a new immersive scenario.
