Verizon Augmented Reality / Virtual Reality

Verizon is an American multinational telecommunications conglomerate and a corporate component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Verizon is the largest wireless communications service provider in the US and is also a large telecommunications company that was one of the seven ‘Baby Bells’ that was formed following a lawsuit involving AT&T and the US Department of Justice.

Under the direction of the executive director, Verizon wanted a way to use latest technology to equip technicians with augmented reality and virtual reality devices. It was showcased in a technology event within Verizon’s Basking Ridge location. The idea was to show locations of manholes, poles, terminals, etc within standing range. If those items are obstructed from view such as in the case of snow, technicians will still be able to easily identify the correct location of the item.
