Just like the real world, the digital worlds of Extended Reality (XR) are often mobile – and will require wireless connectivity. 5G Americas’ latest white paper, “Extended Reality and 3GPP Evolution” details how 5G’s high speeds and low latency can help realize a truly immersive Extended Reality experience:
- XR creates either fully virtual, immersive environments, or blends those virtual landscapes and features with the real world – and these use cases aren’t just limited to gaming, but extend to enterprise, institutions and manufacturing.
- Low latency, high reliability, lower power consumption, and high capacity are key requirements for the success of XR.
- 3GPP Releases 15 and 16 offer solid foundations for XR, but were not specifically designed to support Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), or Mixed Reality (MR).
- Potential XR/VR/AR use cases and service delivery requirements continue to evolve over 3GPP specification releases
The paper covers:
The evolution of XR
XR key facilitators and use cases
Virtual reality (VR) use cases
Augmented reality (AR) use cases
- XR service characteristics and delivery requirements
- XR key enablers
- XR in 3GPP standards
