How 5G and edge computing can enhance virtual reality

Article | April 8, 2020

The current global pandemic is drastically impacting our daily lives, and as a result, the relevance of such digital applications and services is accelerating. For example, we suddenly see an increased need for communication services, tools for remote collaboration, and fast and reliable access to data – whether it’s from the office, the home or somewhere in between. Augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR) are two technology concepts providing significant benefits in this new digital reality. These technologies open new ways of working in areas such as manufacturing, gaming, media, automotive and healthcare, allowing for both increased productivity and completely new user experiences. In the Ericsson ConsumerLab merged reality report, 7 out of 10 early adopters expect VR and AR to change everyday life fundamentally.

Britain's got open RAN talent, hopes clueless govt.

Article | July 2, 2021

Opportunity knocks for open RAN hopefuls in the UK. They have been invited by the government to enter a competition offering cash prizes from a pot of £30 million ($41.3 million) for the best-performing contestants. Think of it as a Britain's Got Talent for open RAN, probably untelevized and without Simon Cowell as a judge. It is the UK's latest attempt to help cultivate 5G alternatives to big kit vendors Ericsson and Nokia, which are set to be the country's dominant 5G infrastructure providers once operators have expunged all traces of China's Huawei – something the government has ordered them to do by 2028.

Huawei: AR Needs 5G, 5G needs AR

Article | July 6, 2021

Without a robust 5G network, carriers will not be able to take full advantage of new business opportunities surrounding augmented reality (AR). This was the bottom-line message from Huawei’s recent Better World Summit (BWS), which turned the spotlight on “5G+AR.” How the network is designed is another key consideration. If AR headsets are to become lighter and cheaper, offloading compute processing to the network edge and cloud — over stable and low-latency 5G connections — is essential. It is why Huawei advocates a partnership approach, spanning AR collaboration in all three areas: 5G networks, devices, and content. The prize of getting these sorts of partnerships ‘right’ is huge. According to Huawei, working in tandem with a third-party research institute, the AR market will reach a hefty $300 billion with 1.2 billion users by 2025.

A strong US 5G sector promises good jobs and better security

Article | April 2, 2020

On Dec. 12, 1901, Italian inventor Guglielmo Marconi demonstrated the very first transatlantic radio-wave transmission and ushered in a new age of wireless communications. More than a century later, wireless technology still is one of our primary sources of communication. But as our radio-wave highways become increasingly congested, each new generation of wireless technology is forced to ascend into higher and higher frequencies. The fifth generation of wireless technology, known as “5G,” will expand into spectrum bands Marconi could never have foreseen. Because it will allow data to be transmitted more quickly and efficiently than ever before, 5G technology has the potential to improve everything from search and rescue missions and medical care to transportation, real-time language translation and precision farming. It could allow firefighters to use thermal imaging to see through smoke and locate victims more easily. It could help specialists perform remote robotic surgery on patients who are far away.
