5G Cloud XR brings together Cloud-based technologies and XR to deliver superior experiences that revolutionise the consumption of content in both the consumer and the enterprise sectors.
Telecom operators play an important role in delivering the capabilities required by XR such as edge computing, high data transfer, low latency all of which will be delivered through the deployment of 5G. Furthermore; the big storage and massive computing capabilities needs of XR are met by the deployment of Cloud technologies within operator 5G networks
In November 2018, the GSMA announced the launch of a new industry-wide initiative called The GSMA 5G Cloud XR Forum that is designed to accelerate the delivery and adoption of 5G cloud-based AR, VR, SR technologies. The initiative focuses on the following topics, in order to help operators tackle the challenges of this new service:
- Identify the key use cases in Cloud XR
- Investigate value chain, stakeholders and business models
- Share case studies and best implementation practices
- Define a recommended service architecture to accommodate 5G Cloud based services
