© 1999-2012 IEEE. Augmented and/or virtual reality (AR/VR) are emerging as one of the main applications in future fifth-generation (5G) networks. To meet the requirements of lower latency and massive data transmission in AR/VR applications, a solution with software-defined networking architecture is proposed for 5G small cell networks. On this basis, a multipath cooperative route (MCR) scheme is proposed to facilitate the AR/VR wireless transmissions in 5G small cell networks, in which the delay of the MCR scheme is analytically studied. Furthermore, a service effective energy (SEE) optimization algorithm is developed for AR/VR wireless transmission in 5G small cell networks. Simulation results indicate that both the delay and SEE of the proposed MCR scheme outperform the delay and SEE of the conventional single-path route scheme in 5G small cell networks.
