Augmented reality and Virtual reality are two of the most advanced technologies enhancing how humans consume digital media. AR and VR are being applied in various fields of technology related to Business, entertainment, scientific experiments, simulated training, medicine etc. Both technologies involve transfer of high-volume data consisting of visual and aural information and therefore require large bandwidth, very low latency, efficient encoding and optimal transmission to provide a seamless

This can be eliminated by designing an API that analyzes the requirements and ensures smooth experience. Such API with 5G technology can achieve many use cases and can help AR and VR become more mainstream.
