Tactile Internet

The “Tactile Internet” enables the interaction between humans that are far away between each others as if they were near. The tactile internet is meant to be a ultra-low latency communication system that ensures ultra-low communication delay along with high availability, reliability, and security.

Feature Description
Low latency The tactile internet is designed to provide ultra-low latency (less than 1 millisecond), allowing for real-time interactions.
High reliability The technology is built to be highly reliable, with very high availability, reliability, and security.
High network density It can support a large number of devices within a certain area (high device density), essential for IoT applications.
Bi-directional communication Tactile Internet allows for two-way communication between devices, enabling interactions that are responsive and interactive.
Haptic feedback It supports the transmission of physical sensations or haptic feedback, enabling users to ‘feel’ or ‘touch’ the digital world.
High-speed connectivity It aims to provide high-speed data transmission, supporting services requiring high data rates.
Real-time control Due to low latency, it enables real-time control of remote devices. Essential for critical applications like remote surgeries, industrial automation etc.
Integration with AI and IoT The Tactile Internet is expected to integrate seamlessly with Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things technologies, leveraging their capabilities for better user experience.
High mobility It supports high-speed mobility, which allows it to provide reliable connections even when the user or device is moving at high speed.
Energy Efficiency The network is designed to be energy-efficient, to support a large number of IoT devices which may run on battery power.

Tactile Internet: Bringing Reality Into the Digital World

The Tactile Internet has the potential to dramatically change the way humans live, work and play. Imagine being able to feel the texture of an object while shopping online, or experiencing realistic haptic feedback while playing a virtual reality game.
