Leading the race in enhancing the functionality and appeal of 5G, California-based XCOM Labs, led by former Qualcomm executives, is set to change the game in wireless extended reality (XR) systems. This innovation aims to propel the United States further ahead in the global technology sphere.

At the Augmented World Expo (AWE) USA 2022, XCOM Labs showcased its XR system with advanced VR and Mixed Reality headsets. Spearheading the initiative are former Qualcomm executives Paul Jacobs, Matt Grob, and Derek Aberle, projecting a commercial launch later this year utilizing the unlicensed 60 GHz band.

The brainchild of these US technology leaders, XCOM Labs, was conceived in 2018 with an ambitious goal: to boost system performance, bringing about a radical shift in efficiency. Their innovative technique centralizes processing, allowing for advanced computations to occur predominantly at the edge server. This split rendering technology will enable cinematic-style rendering for a whole new level of immersive user experience.

Underlining the XCOM’s success is a team of over 80 skilled professionals who have developed three dynamic systems to cater to various needs. The systems include an unlicensed band solution, a licensed band technology, and a software-focused VR system.

The technology, optimized for high data rates and confined areas, promises to manage latency effectively, making this a key offering for applications that demand real-time response. The VR system exemplifies these characteristics, giving the users a reliable, high-speed wireless solution.

Open RAN interests the XCOM team as well. Although still in its infancy, the promise of flexible partnering options and defined interfaces, coupled with access to an ecosystem of vendors for software, presents an attractive option for the company’s innovative drive.

The 5G era, according to Jacobs, extends beyond the existing functionalities of 2G, 3G, and 4G. It’s poised to support the creation of immersive digital environments previously only achievable with wired connections. The advent of the metaverse, as highlighted by the likes of Meta founder Mark Zuckerberg, provides a prime platform for XCOM’s technology.

As XCOM Labs continues to push boundaries, the future of 5G and XR technology looks promising. This will not only enhance the United States’ position as a global leader in technological innovation but also set new standards for wireless communication worldwide.
