Indianapolis 500 hosts ‘5G’ smart home

Sean Kinney for RCR Wireless:  In the run-up to the Indianapolis 500 race this weekend, a trio of tech heavy-hitters are demonstration pre-standardized 5G technologies in the context of a connected, smart home. Verizon, Ericsson and Intel are taking the opportunity to showcase consumer-facing entertainment aspects of ultra high capacity and ultra low latency network throughput including streaming virtual reality and 360-degree, 4K video.

For the showcase in Speedway, Ind., Verizon deployed a 5G trial network using Ericsson network equipment and Intel’s in-home gateway device. The user experience involves using a headset, which provides a 4K, 360-degree view of the track that supplemented with virtual reality elements. Other use cases touted by the companies include crystal-clear security camera feeds that can be tapped through the cloud, other VR and AR interactions, and providing a platform for internet of things devices and services.  Full Article:
