In this regard, this strategy has come up with an ambitious proposal to create 40,000 “virtual” jobs by 2030.

Data, network, cloud, and edge computing are pillars of technology in metaverse strategies that focus on the actual data that is acquired, validated, stored, processed, and managed.
Other pillars include facilitating the full deployment of 5G networks to enable edge computing and provide on-demand computer system resources. Edge computing allows you to collect, store, and process data locally via smart devices and local networks instead of the cloud.
