VR is so popular now, but to achieve mobility experience, it also need a large enough network speed to support. Therefore, Huawei’s VR strategy is different from HTC, Sony and other traditional hardware vendors, they are trying to upgrade the network speed in the early stages.
In this regard, Wang Jun, president of Huawei FDD Product Line, said in Huawei Analyst Meeting, VR will be one of the main ways of social platform in the future, but the current network is not sufficient to support a good experience for VR, especially wireless VR.
To achieve the perfect virtual reality experience, need to handle the amount of up to 5.2Gbit data per second, the delay to less than 20ms said by William Xu, president of Huawei Strategic Marketing stated.
So Huawei stepping up the layout of a higher rate of 4.5G and 5G network. According to Wang, download speeds of 5G network is expected to reach 1Gbps, so it can fix the delay problem for VR.
