High Bandwidth and Low Latency Connectivity – The Backbone of Metaverse.

According to Lumen’s experts, highly interconnected networks and top performance data centers are key elements to enable companies leverage the potential of opportunities this new technological paradigm proposes. 

Metaverse is on the spotlight – this new virtual and immersive universe that redefines the way people interact, entertain, and work, also entails new challenges for organizations. The so-called “Industrial Metaverse” or “Business Metaverse” promotes new spaces to launch products, hold customer events, perform remote demonstrations, showcase new experiences for consumers or drive collaboration between team members, among various cases of use. 

There are no limits: the combination of 3D technologies, virtual reality and augmented reality, big data, high-performance computing, and artificial intelligence make it possible to simulate any situation or build digital twins, i.e., reproductions of elements of reality (from a machine to a factory, from a power grid to a rail run, and from a building to an entire city) to test or change what-if scenarios with very little cost, no delay, and no risk of disruption. This is how successful elements can be deployed into reality.  For example, a technical team that must test a car engine under different circumstances can sense acceleration, speed, noises, and many other variables. 

From a technology standpoint, Internet is the backbone that enables the Metaverse performance -it can be hosted both in the cloud and on the edge. To deliver the best experience, connectivity must provide high bandwidth levels and minimal latency. 

This is so because real-time processing and transfer of huge amounts of data and the speed of response are key – these are multi-user environments where all avatars (or users) must see the same reality. Each of these actions -a movement, something they say, an element shown or shared- have an impact on the rest. A bare second delay can “disrupt” this alternate universe’s sense of reality. 

“Network infrastructure service behind these Metaverses must be highly interconnected to minimize latency, provide edge proposals to bring processing closer to the place where facts occur, and provide maximum bandwidth to support immersive and complex experiences with the highest quality”, says Alejandro Girardotti, Regional Director of Connectivity and Content for Lumen LATAM. 

Lumen’s Platform combines a fiber-optic network to connect different clouds, both public and private, edge and endpoints, end-to-end managed services, and low Latency processing capacity for any kind of application, which altogether assure performance, flexibility, agility, and security levels that Metaverse requires.
