We consider the network implications of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). While there are intrinsic challenges for AR/VR applications to deliver on their promise, their impact on the underlying infrastructure will be undeniable. We look at augmented and virtual reality and consider a few use cases where they could be deployed. These use cases define a set of requirements for the underlying network. We take a brief look at potential network architectures. We then make the case for…
