Students at all levels have grown accustomed to watching videos to bring subjects like history to life. The rapid end-to-end latency of 5G in the future of network management, however, will usher in the ability to simulate the experience of living in previous eras through technologies such as virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR).
Outside of school, the future of network management could offer incredible efficiencies and a productivity boost by using the same technologies for field service repairs, enhanced online shopping and more.
In time, the future of networks will also see more organizations combining VR with telepresence and "digital twin" technology to allow employees to operate machinery or even drive vehicles from a remote location like the office or even their home.
Delivering experiences as immersive as these will certainly add complexities to network management, given that a single action could require data traveling across a mixture of wired, wireless and virtual networks. That's why organizations will need visibility into every segment of the network to troubleshoot and resolve issues quickly and easily.
Fortunately, most of the building blocks the future of network management requires are all readily available today.
