BEAT: Blockchain-Enabled Accountable Infrastructure Sharing in 6G and Beyond – Arxiv

The primary challenges for future technologies are not just low-latency and high-bandwidth. The more critical problem Mobile Service Providers (MSPs) will face will be in balancing the inflated demands of network connections and customers’ trust in the network service, that is, being able to interconnect billions of unique devices while adhering to the agreed terms of Service Level Agreements (SLAs). To meet these targets, it is self-evident that MSPs cannot operate in a solitary environment. They must enable cooperation among themselves in a manner that ensures trust, both between themselves as well as with customers. In this study, we present the BEAT (Blockchain Enabled Accountable and Transparent) Infrastructure Sharing architecture. BEAT exploits the inherent properties of permissioned type of distributed ledger technology (i.e., permissioned distributed ledgers) to deliver on accountability and transparency metrics whenever infrastructure needs to be shared between providers. We also propose a lightweight method that enables device-level accountability.

The Transformation of Infrastructure: A New Space Race – Siemens

No rivals, no rockets, no thrill-seeking billionaires – this is a race for earth’s space, set in our physical and digital infrastructure, the spaces where we work, live and move. This is a race against time – a race we can only win by working together. How do we coordinate these demands?

6G Events to Attend in 2022

6GWorld has put together this non-exhaustive list of confirmed 6G events across the globe, including non-6G events related to the topic

Network Energy Reduction A Spur to Radical Innovation

Demands for improved coverage, capacity and performance do not obviously tie in with reducing energy use and environmental impact. Combining these demands is pushing research and design into new areas: can the business ecosystem keep pace with the technology changes?

Holistic Security and Networking A Key To Telco Differentiation

6GWorld spoke to Sunil Ravi, Chief Security Architect at Versa Networks, about the impact of the pandemic on enterprise services; challenges facing the secure delivery of enterprise 5G; and opportunities for telecoms players to differentiate themselves in a software-driven environment.

Can Beyond-5G Support Emergency Services? Lessons From FirstNet

To many within the telecoms environment, emergency services have seemed like a world apart, operating independently on systems such as TETRA. However, there are signs that this may be changing as the unique demands of public safety services start to overlap with what commercial systems are able to deliver.

Can we get to a point in the future where one system can support the whole of our society? 6GWorld had an enlightening conversation with Harlin Williams, long-time police chief and key mover behind the USA’s FirstNet initiative.

6G: The Road To A Revolution? Or The Road To Perdition?

6GWorld is fortunate to have an Advisory Board with a wide variety of different perspectives and insights from around the world. Not long ago, we caught up with the Board to talk about critical issues and concerns.
We certainly didn’t expect the depth and variety of conversation sparked between the different members but here are some of the key ideas and themes, many of which you won’t often hear in public forums, which all add up to an existential problem for many key players in the telecoms industry. Food for thought as we head into a new year.
