MEETING RECAP: Leveraging Low Latency
Author: Telecom Council Staff
Low latency is one of the defining characteristics of 5G networks, and was a design goal of the new radios. The notion is that lower latency will improve the quality of communications, but also open up new opportunity for network operators to sell new services or lower latencies as a premium product.
The discussion landed on the major uses of LL:
- Automotive connectivity, V2x
- Industrial Automation. Remote control of automated machines (ex: a swarm of drones)
- Remote manipulation, ex: remote surgery at scene of a car accident
Thank you to our panelists, Chris Cavigioli, Intel Corp and Jim Misener, Qualcomm for sharing their expertise as we discussed the obstacles and benefits of Low Latency networks and to Microsemi for hosting us.
