In future, the 5G networks will render communications backbone for data-rich services and sophisticated cloud applications delivered in the fastest and most efficient way possible. This demonstration is a part of Intel’s work with communications service providers and equipment manufacturers ranging from the cloud to the network to the device. It aims to define standards, deploy trials and deliver products to bring 5G to life.
One of these demonstrations will also showcase a live 360-degree view of the racetrack using virtual reality (VR) and high-resolution 4K 360-degree video streaming live over the air. It will make use of an in-home gateway based on the Intel 5G Mobile Trial Platform and Intel connected home technology delivering 5G connectivity to head-mounted displays. The Intel-powered network reflects the 5G benefits offered to new consumer VR experiences.
Intel expands the boundaries of technology to make the most amazing experiences possible.
