Session description

Telefónica, with its network capabilities (5G and fibre) and edge cloud computing, enables the end-to-end transmission of audiovisual signals in up to 4K from the operating room to devices such as VR goggles, tablets or a laptop PC. This way surgeons, experts or resident students can visualise what is happening during the operation, communicate with the medical team or even make graphic indications, in real time and completely independent of their location.

The technological challenge is to provide the necessary connectivity to support the bandwidth needs of the different video signals, to maintain low latencies and make the experience as fluid as possible, and to guarantee access to the virtual operating room for 50, 100, 200 surgeons at the same time, connecting remotely without any loss of image quality, and without interrupting bidirectional communication. The virtual operating room solution is called mSurgery and is part of Telefónica’s commercial portfolio.

Demo Description

After the presentation, we will connect live to the Germans Trias i Pujol Hospital during the course of a real operation with the da Vinci robot. Through the mSurgery application and Telefónica’s connectivity, we will establish a direct connection with the surgical team in the operating room. This will allow us to access, via tablet and/or VR glasses, the same view that the surgeon is experiencing through the da Vinci robot’s visor, providing a glimpse of its full potential in educational or remote assistance scenarios.
