How can you improve productivity across human, physical, and digital worlds?

With optimally engineered networks that seamlessly bring new, immersive experiences together.

The metaverse's immersive experiences will heavily depend on the seamless flow of data across networks, serving as the lifeblood that connects users, environments and virtual interactions. In a world that endlessly evolves, another paradigm shift is on the horizon. One that promises to reshape the very fabric of our digital lives—the metaverse.

In a world that endlessly evolves, another paradigm shift is on the horizon One that promises to reshape the very fabric of our digital lives: the metaverse. Metaverse innovations will steadily progress and take time to be fully realized. XR devices, digital twins and sensors are already delivering tangible value to enterprise and industrial environments. But, connecting the human, physical and digital worlds without a more cognitive, automated and ultra-responsive network infrastructure, the metaverse will remain a figment of imagination. Every immersive experience, every lifelike interaction, and every real-time collaboration hinge on the seamless flow of data, connecting users from every corner of the globe. The quality of networks will be critical to ensuring that users have a seamless and immersive experience in the metaverse.

$8 trillion

Citi GPS predicts a metaverse economy to be worth $8 trillion to $13 trillion by the year 2030.

495 exabytes

Nokia’s Global Network Traffic report projects metaverse traffic alone to be as much as 495.2 exabytes per month in 2030.

$6 billion

By 2025, manufacturing industry digital twins are forecast to reach a market size worth over $6 billion.

Service providers

Get the insights

Service providers form the backbone of our interconnected digital world and are poised to play a pivotal role in shaping, supporting, and generating value for consumers, enterprises and industrial customers. Without the network, there is no metaverse. We anticipate:


  • Develop a metaverse strategy for consumers, government, businesses, and industries. Consider roles as connectivity infrastructure foundation provider, cloud infrastructure provider, metaverse platform provider, and metaverse experience co-creator in the metaverse value chain.
  • Plan your metaverse infrastructure. Estimate metaverse traffic and compute demands for proto-metaverse applications like smartphone AR, multi-user virtual world platforms, and cloud gaming and future XR applications like volumetric video, XR cloud gaming, and synthetic agents. Consider your network augmentation and expansion timeline.
  • Make your future network metaverse-ready with 5G-advanced, 6G, XGS-PON, flexible edge clouds, and a cognitive and cloud-native transport fabric to meet cloud-hosted content and compute throughput and latency demands. Ensure that your future network architecture supports ubiquitous AI for automation and intelligent operations.
  • Experiment with and deploy network APIs (such as Quality on Demand and location) to innovate and monetize proto-metaverse applications like consumer cloud gaming and enterprise spatial collaboration, laying the groundwork for future metaverse XR services.
