Galileo Hall Virtual Tour hints at 5G powered Virtual Reality for Remote Workplace

“For radio access network, in order to tap into 5G, you need to be connected to optical fibre, ideally, or microwave antennas. The radio access is seen as the most challenging part, as if a customer wants to upgrade, another base would need to be added, taking up space and costing more money. Huawei then took the initiative of adding the bases on the pole to cut costs.” Jean Francois Tremblay, Vice President, Communications Strategist of Huawei HQ, explaining Huawei 5G during a Galileo Hall Virtual Tour

Tech Giants Huawei, hosted its Galileo Hall Virtual Tour on Thursday April 22nd via zoom. The tour consisted of demonstrations with experts who met physically at the Centre and with whom they interacted directly.

This tour included demonstrations on how the latest technologies are being used to develop a wide range of both industrial and business applications, such as:

  • Smart Cities
  • Smart Factories
  • Smart Health
  • Smart Grid
  • Smart Education
  • Smart Agriculture
  • Urban Safety
  • New Smart Media

The tour also involved a presentation about 5G, Cyber Security and the Results of its implementation in different countries of the region.

The Galileo Exhibition Hall, physically located at Huawei’s headquarters in Shenzhen, China, was named after the “Father of Modern Science”, Galileo Galilei, and is inspired by his pioneering achievements in science and technology.]

Galileo Hall Virtual Tour in a Nutshell – Great show but Zoom wasn’t fast enough

The first thing you notice when entering the Hall is an eye catching architectural corridor which displays  screens that highlight scientists which led the field of communication from modern radio technology to the 5G era of today.

During this tour, viewers were introduced to many technologies and applications that made 5G what it is today along with applications that 5G managed to make possible. It was explained how Huawei has 1+1 sites, a unified and standardized module design that drastically decreases the reconstruction costs for new 5G infrastructure and lowers the total cost of ownership for consumers.

Essentially, this is to satisfy utmost configuration for all frequency bands supported by a single passive antenna in different scenarios, withhold space for 5G Massive MIMO deployment, and immediate 5G activation.

My only problem was their choice of using Zoom, which was possibly to avoid running into America-based Google (Google Meet) and Microsoft (Skype), both of whom may be competitors in the space.

5G is coming – Virtual Reality to make Remote Work possible

5G can be very impactful to the lifestyle for users. Huawei’s Galileo Hall depicts exactly this as it included leaps in Virtual Reality technology, LG using 5G for products such as multi-view live sports and AR Live, 5G+ Media, and 5G+ 8K visual experiences.

5G is coming for sure. Not sure, however, if Jamaica or anyone in the Caribbean is ready to pay for much higher speeds to enable Virtual Reality to make Remote Work possible. We still are having issues with even getting people comfortable with working at Home, muchless employees comfortable with the idea of trusting employees to be paid to do work at home.
