The 9th AREA Research Project

The Role of 5G in AR Enterprise Solutions

This Executive Summary includes two parts: “5G and AR Research Introduction” and “The Role of 5G for AR Enterprise Solutions.”  This research explores if and how 5G communications could help reduce current limitations and accelerate the deployment of advanced AR solutions for enterprises and make AR an integral part of the modern workplace.

The full report is available only to AREA members. The research team, composed of experts in IoT and 5G, has taken a combined research approach. They compiled and assessed business and academic literature on the  predicted role of 5G in Industry 4.0, 5G-enabled AR solutions for enterprises and the  expected future evolutions of 5G and AR.

The literature review was followed by a primary research phase, conducting interviews with key stakeholders: enterprises (primarily manufacturers), system integrators specialized in Industry 4.0 solutions, experts in 5G and AR, mobile network operators, and members of the AR community. The knowledge of the AR community regarding 5G was also assessed through a short survey.
