Workshop on Metaverse as a network problem: performance and enabling technologies

Metaverse can be seen as a network problem, since AR/VR applications need high throughput, high bandwidth demands with a high sensitivity to latency and dropped packets.

There are already solutions dealing with these issues but there are also limitations. Client-pull technologies are more flexible, firewall-friendly, and scalable than server-push technologies. However, there is less control given its decentralized nature, which introduces new challenges for the transport network to offer a consistent and possibly higher quality of service. Therefore, a close cooperation between client applications and network would be desirable. The Edge Cloud is also becoming a promising technique since it benefits from the intensive computational resources in order to enable users to obtain a real-time immersive experience without equipping high end devices.


There are elaborate solutions for dealing with bandwidth limitations, network congestion, lossy transport protocols, and the ever-growing size of video data. Existing systems have mechanisms that use aggressively the available network resources and cause a decrease of the QoE and rebuffering events. Different technologies have been discussed in IETF recently dealing with media applications:

  • Information-centric networking (ICN)
  • Media Delivery Protocol over QUIC (QuicR)
  • Low Latency, Low Loss, Scalable Throughput (L4S)
  • Application-aware Networking (APN)
  • Computing-Aware Networking (CAN)

The scope of this workshop is to discuss what are the requirements of Metaverse for the network and the enabling technologies among and beyond the different candidates.
