The USA has signalled its intention to take a lead in 6G with provisions in, among others, the $280bn CHIPS and Science act. While some of the technology directions for 6G are becoming clearer, reaching those aspirations through the 2020s will be demanding. Building sound commercial models for 6G and its related services is key to ensuring timely deployments and uptake, which will depend in turn on coordination with regulators and policymakers across multiple domains. We can learn from 5G – such as the crucial role of potential client industries in identifying demand and possible business cases – but there’s more to be done.
So what do we need to do to get beyond the hype and be ready to deliver practical, effective solutions from day one?
