  • The challenge

    Optimizing collaboration among teams



Organizations need to reduce inefficiencies and impediments to effective digital communications. 

Remote and interoffice employees want hands-on environments where they can work more seamlessly together. 

It's critical to bridge the distance and availability barriers that prevent workers from engaging each other.

  • Save time and money.

    In industries like architecture and construction, taking time to gather as teams and visit jobsites can be costly and time-consuming. Virtual inspections using augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality capabilities could save valuable time and money.

  • 5G opportunities

    Collaboration in augmented reality

AR can allow teams to visualize processes as they work, simplifying coordination among multiple parties.

The low lag enabled by 5G also improves the near real-time experience for users.

5G-enabled AR applications can support any number of devices needed for a meeting or presentation, ensuring that everyone gets the same information at the same time.

5G can handle the massive image-processing demands that AR requires to stream multiple near real-time feeds at once and over various distances.

How it works

    • AR can transform the way people engage with content and each other.

      • 5G-enabled applications can run on multiple devices, connecting people in different locations to bring everyone together to collaborate in near real time.

      • 5G can transmit and process data quickly, making the process smooth for everyone involved.

      • Cameras and AR-enabled devices can capture and project participants’ presence in near real time.

      • Add multi-access edge computing (MEC), and 3D-rendered content can process closer to the participant, making the AR experience more seamless and interactive.

      • With MEC running on 5G, 3D schematics of a building can upload and render considerably faster than the blink of an eye, delivering a more immersive and realistic experience.

      • Users can manipulate the rendering and collaborate in near real time, improving the meeting experience for everyone involved.
