Steve Alexander, Ciena CTO speaks at MWC23: Enabling Metaverse Ready Networks with Fiber

The metaverse has become one of the most talked about topics in tech. However, despite all of the coverage and speculation, there is still very little understanding of what an immersive, metaverse-ready network looks like and how we get to the point where we have the ideal latency requirements and overall network performance.

Hear Ciena CTO, Steve Alexander, speak about some of the architectural considerations for enabling a whole host of enhanced reality applications, from robots in smart factories to residential broadband applications like video streaming, gaming and more.

This talk took place live at Mobile World Congress 2023 in Barcelona.
