Advanced technologies such as augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and extended reality (XR) have seen considerable development in recent years. Many mobile and head-mounted devices support immersive technologies, which require a point cloud for multiple users to view and access information in real time. Companies have invested in building the point cloud to include advanced technologies and innovations for efficient operations.

The AR Cloud is a next-generation technology that creates digital replicas of a real-world environment to provide data quickly and conveniently. Companies face significant challenges when operating and managing the AR Cloud, which involves large volumes of continuous data flow that could lead to complexities and inefficient data management. Data security is also vital in a dynamic application environment that holds so much data. Another challenge for AR Cloud companies is the evolving digital era, which increases the need for multiple point clouds running simultaneously, high-bandwidth networks, and fast edge computing.
