Meta Claims Its Metaverse Goals Require Stronger Cellular Networks.
Formerly known as Facebook, the company has stated that if modern telecoms networks aren’t significantly upgraded, its ultimate metaverse ambitions will remain unrealized.
The term metaverse has being thrown around as if it were the next big thing in technology. The term is used to describe the general idea of a unified digital environment in which individuals can interact naturally with one another in their professional and personal lives.
When asked by CNBC about the readiness of home and cellular networks for the metaverse, Dan Rabinovitsj, VP of connectivity at Meta, said that they aren’t there yet.
To determine the next innovative step,we’re working closely with our colleagues, he added, adding that Meta is also collaborating with cellular partners.
Compared to other markets, the telecom industry has a slower rate of innovation, according to Rabinovitsj. We’ve made efforts to alter that trend of innovation.
However, while a complete metaverse has yet to be realised, there are already active initiatives that provide glimpses into what such a world would be like. It has been suggested that the Oculus virtual reality headsets created by Meta may serve as a portal to these novel metaverse experiences. These experiences, however, call for lower ping times and faster data transfers.
Rabinovitsj remarked, We need to build a common language around the performance of networks.In this next stage of development, we see measuring as crucial.
CEO and founder of Meta Mark Zuckerberg said in a statement released on Sunday that developing a meaningful sensation of presence in virtual worlds delivered through smart glasses and VR headsets will require huge advances in connectivity.
According to Zuckerberg, this transition would have to be greater than any of the step changes we’ve seen before, and it will require brand new types of networks to support innovations like massive, immersive video streaming.
U.K. mobile network BT consumer division CEO Marc Allera told Wednesday that the metaverse will put current networks to the test. However, he assured me that the telecoms sector invests much in cutting-edge technologies.
When you stop and think about what you’re able to do on a smartphone today, compared to 10 years ago, that’s as a result of this industry and network operators investing huge amounts of money with no contribution made by content companies on these networks, Allera said before a meeting with representatives from Meta.
I’ll attempt to understand what their role is in supporting this ecosystem other than just asking what we’re doing about it, he continued.
Executive VP of AT&T David Christopher recently told CNBC that the rollout of 5G is proceeding more quickly than that of 4G, with huge investment across carriers.

In his opinion, networks currently provide minimal latency, constant speeds, and great capacity. A decade from now, this will only develop to enable various use cases across many industries, including immersive and metaverse-like experiences, Christopher said.
For the Metaverse to flourish, improved connectivity from 5G is a vital factor, as is innovation and interoperability across numerous sectors.
