Mixed reality services promise to enhance our lives by providing us with real-time immersive media and contextual information delivered through lightweight wireless head mounted displays. We introduce a perception based mixed reality video streaming platform that reduces the data rate requirements for such services from several Gbps to 100 Mbps over a network that supports a 10 ms Round-Trip-Time. We expect mixed reality services first to be delivered through indoor and campus area networks and later through ubiquitous 5G networks. Our simulation and measurement results show that massive MIMO and millimeter wave transmissions can provide the required aggregate multi-Gigabit indoor data rates to support mixed reality services.
