virtual reality




  • The challenge

  • Enhancing education with more innovative, 
    scalable methods.

    Educators from K-12 to higher education know that technology innovation can be critical to engaging and effectively teaching students. New tools for collaboration and augmented and virtual reality could elevate the educational experience.  Schools need the right internet connectivity and bandwidth to support these tools.

      Innovative technologies like virtual reality could help engage students in new powerful ways and enhance educational experiences.

5G Opportunities

5G-enhanced educational possibilities


    Educators from K-12 to Higher Education are looking for more effective, engaging ways to educate students.


    Virtual reality (VR) offers new possibilities for students to interact with educational content within a virtual, three-dimensional learning environment.

  • Wifi


    These VR experiences require high-bandwidth and high refresh rates.


    Because of 5G’s ability to support increased data volumes with low lag (or latency) it can be ideal for supporting VR or other augmented reality (AR) experiences.

    • How it works

      5G puts the reality into virtual reality learning experiences.

      Students in classrooms and remote locations put on VR headsets and enter a multi-user VR experience set in outer space, showing planets and star systems.

      Large amounts of data are used to create immersive virtual learning environments, all powered by 5G.

    • Students are able to interact with each other in the environment, creating stars and manipulating planets.

      By visualizing the environment and the complicated concepts and theories, students can better comprehend and retain the subject matter.


    • Students in other classrooms could potentially join the same virtual environment, collaborating and learning together at scale.

      5G networks could help make these rich learning experiences a reality for students.


5G Built Right

Our 5G Ultra Wideband network is built right to power transformative possibilities for business.

  • Arrows around a circle


    • Verizon has implemented fiber in major cities to drive densification.
    • This fiber can accommodate bandwidth for capability not previously possible.


  • Soundwaves

    Millimeter wave spectrum

    • Verizon has critical low-band and high-band spectrum holdings.
    • Millimeter-wave spectrum can deliver high speed and massive capacity.
  • Small cell deployment

    • Verizon has spent years densifying its 4G LTE network, and its 5G network will leverage the same densification.
    • Verizon has relationships in place with large and small municipalities both enabling its small cell deployment.


  • Edge computing

    • Verizon has network locations that are ideally suited for housing edge-computing resources.
    • MEC could deliver access to the tools, power, and locations to deploy at scale.


  • This is 5G built right,
    from the network
    businesses rely on.

  • 5G Nationwide available in 2700+ cities. 5G Ultra Wideband (UWB) available only in parts of select cities. 5G UWB access requires a 5G capable device with select voice/data & 5G UWB plans.
