How 5G and VR are poised to push modeling and simulation to next level

he introduction of 5G networks will have far reaching impact for a number of businesses and industries and the effect it will have on augmented and virtual realty is perhaps most important in Orlando, where AT&T announced in 2019 the launch of 5G.

Virtual- and augmented-reality (known as VR and AR) gear is starting to become more portable, but to get to the level of widespread use, it must be as compact as a smartphone and offer the same capability as full-sized gear. On the current cellular network speed — 4G LTE — information transmission is not quick enough to handle the output needed. The answer to crossing that development gap is 5G, said Waymon Armstrong, founder, CEO and president of Orlando-based Engineering & Computer Simulations Inc. Read more here.
