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
