Fifth generation - or 5G - is the new and improved mobile broadband internet that began rolling out 2019 and will continue expanding in 2020. While you might be interested in how this will affect your everyday cell phone service, it’s time to think bigger and faster – 120 times faster! 5G will mean unprecedented download and streaming speeds but, more than that, it will be able to support 100,000 of devices per km2, more than 50 times the present networks. This biggest benefit of this is close to 0 latency - 1 millisecond (1ms) - anything from smart sensors, industrial automation, and especially augmented and virtual reality will benefit from real time communication. The increased bandwidth will take AR and VR from local to online and networked, enabling almost instantaneous communication between devices.
Think that's all?
Some insights on the impact of 5G on AR and VR at work:
- Live is really live: seamless connection for teams - local or remote - during global training sessions, video conferencing, and remote support work.
- Remote everything: put on your headset and your office goes with you, out in the field, connected to key live and archived data. Get access to live support, retrieve procedures and process work orders. Remote control everything from a truck, an inspection drone or a turbine miles away.
- Density brings reliability: the sheer capacity of 5G makes the network reliable. Never before have we had the power to support so many devices from so many locations, simultaneously.
- Cloud processing: forget your PC. All you need now is an AR/VR headset. Biometric performance indexes will be processed in real time, guaranteeing a safe work environment with live monitoring of productivity.
