AR/VR Market Will Need 5G Backbone

(TelecomAsia) The introduction of 5G, and its continued development over the next decade, will allow mobile AR and VR to reach their full potential across industries. The true advantage of 5G in relation to AR and VR manifests itself in three components: more capacity, lower latency, and better network uniformity. Some applications rely on one component more than another, but supporting all three simultaneously is critical to enabling all AR and VR use cases under the same network.
The continued growth of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) will have a far-reaching impact on a number of markets. However, to support this far-reaching impact requires a capable connectivity backbone. A massive bandwidth requirement for premium content experiences combined with ubiquitous all-day device usage will bring about an unprecedented network strain, unable to be fully supported with current network infrastructure.
