GSA: 5G National Spectrum Positions, April 2021

Spectrum in the 4400-5000 MHz range is of interest for mobile services, and although the market is at an early stage, an increasing number of countries are considering this spectrum for IMT. Sub-bands in the 4400-5000 MHz range have coprimary mobile allocation. At WRC-19 over 40 countries identified some or all of the spectrum in this range for IMT. A few countries have assigned spectrum in this range already.

The charts in this document show GSA’s current understanding of the state of mobile operator licensing around the world at 4400 MHz to 5000 MHz

Transforma Insights: Sustainability in New & Emerging Technologies

Sponsored by InterDigital, Transforma Insights’ new report shows the impact that emerging technologies will have on sustainability within the telecoms sector and other sectors. The cost-benefits are complex and vary significantly, but overall digitalisation should support a much smaller ecological footprint.

In total, new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things will save approaching 1.8 PWh of electricity in 2030, and an additional 3.5 PWh of (hydrocarbon) fuel use, resulting in total savings of 5.3 PWh of energy. Offset against this benefit is 653TWh of electricity consumption required to power solutions deployed using new technologies.

For comparison, the total electricity consumption of the global ICT industry is forecast to increase to around 8 PWh by 2030, meaning that together new technologies will generate energy savings equal to around 58% of the total power consumption of the ICT industry.

Conceptualizing Security in a 6G World

The physical world of 2030 and beyond will be more networked, digitised and automated than ever before, depending on connectivity and AI to function. How do we make sure that bad actors cannot exploit this to endanger lives and economies?

Commissioned by 6GWorld, this ABI Research report maps out the interplay between security challenges and the evolution beyond 5G networks, including recommendations for action today and further reading.

From Around the Web

Guest Editorial: The Advent of Private LTE and 5G Networks

Wireless networking in industrial and mission-critical domains may not be news to readers of 6GWorld™, but the latest innovations in this realm are still a novelty to many people whose jobs and lives will soon be transformed by them. Indeed, the world of private LTE and 5G networking infrastructure represents a largely untapped growth opportunity, even though by 2025 it will have enabled a new age of pervasive connectivity and awareness that will foster entirely new modes of customer interaction and service delivery.

6G Competition and Technology Challenges: Q&A With Roger Nichols

This is the second part of a conversation between 6GWorld™ and Keysight’s 6G project lead Roger Nichols. As a specialist test and measurement company, Keysight works with the advanced radio labs in academia, vendors and operators globally. In this article we discussed some of the technology and competitive hurdles Roger is seeing.

Orange & NGMN: Slashing Network Energy Consumption

Ana Galindo Serrano of Orange chats with Transforma Insights' Jim Morrish about the work Orange and the NGMN are doing to curb power consumption in the network.
Among other things, the pair discuss moves to reduce energy usage in datacentres and battery rooms; and global steps towards introducing control and optimisation processes to maximise energy efficiency throughout the network.

MOAB Foundation: Low-Energy IoT Analytics Today

In this video interview Rob Tiffany, head of non-profit Moab Foundation, talks to Matt Hatton about creating free technology to connect devices and capture data in digital twins in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The pair talk about delivering a low-energy platform, design for sustainability and simplicity, and machine learning among other topics.
