The Obama presidential administration had the foresight to start exploring how the next version of the internet would look like and helped create US Ignite.
Kansas City, MO and Salt Lake City, Utah where chosen as the pilot programs to start building smart cities or Smart Gigabit Communities in the United States. The Utah Ignite chapter of US Ignite together with the Lehi Chamber Of Commerce have been helping promote start ups and reverse pitches to help create use cases for a gigabit infrastructure with a ultra low latency network.
“Consequently, when I first heard about Utah Ignite, I wasn’t sure how I could use it for education purposes. Then I began asking myself, what direct problem does ultra-low latency solve in education? I realized that it was simulating environments had latency issues. Virtual reality education credentialing with Sparkki would be the answer to how we could use the features of a gigabit infrastructure. ” says Marcelo Bayon, CEO of Sparkki Inc, the grant recipient.
We look forward to working with Utah Ignite to develop this virtual reality technology to better serve our and develop human capital.
