Telcos Looking for Immersive Technology Bandwidth Needs in Future

Published by , May 1, 2016 10:49 pm

(Huwaei) Telcos now face the needs of immersive technologies, which represent a generational leap in terms of network burden over what came before. The increased definition offers the promise of fully-immersive virtual reality (VR) services. The improved immersive and interactive nature of such content lends itself to a range of new services that telcos could offer if the broadband connections they provide offer more synchronous upload and download speeds.
Unlike the advent of television, this next immersive revolution will see telcos as a core part of the ecosystem. Karl Penaluna, President of 21C Global Networks and Computing Infrastructure at BT said, “We recognize the rising demand for ever-faster broadband speeds. In fact, it’s an issue BT has had to deal with every year since the early days of broadband. We’re investing to deliver the future, and we’ve focused on finding innovative ways. . .  to continue to do so in the future.”
