Creating a 5G world-first
Enhanced video compression and data transfer capabilities over 5G URLLC
The tech will take advantage of the low latency, ultra reliable connectivity (also known as URLLC) 5G offers, meaning it will enable some seriously powerful IoT applications—particularly within critical emergency services where every second counts:
What is 5G URLLC?
It’s one of the three game-changing use cases 5G is set to support, alongside enhanced mobile broadband and massive machine type communication.
Applications that’ll take advantage of URLLC will depend on 5G’s ability to transmit large amounts of data with delays of less than 1ms, making it perfect for situations where even a millisecond delay could be disastrous, like autonomous vehicles or remote surgeries.
Here’s why URLLC makes all the difference in our 5G project:
And in an ambulance that’s looking to stream video back to the hospital, passing through blackspots—or even just moving at high speed—could interrupt vital information and communication streams.
5G promises 1ms of latency, which is 10 times less than that of 4G—meaning transmissions are close to instant.
