Digital transformation is being seen as a critical element of telecoms providers’ survival. The current financial outlook for the industry is not great, and that will feed through into scope for investment into the next generation. We explore whether there is an opportunity to start remedying that.
Rob Calderbank of Duke University is one of those unusual academics to have spent a long time in commercial telecoms environments. Today, while he is leading Duke’s interdisciplinary work on big data, he has also recently published work on something he calls pulsones, which may contribute to a more efficient future air interface. 6GWorld caught up with him to find out more about this, and why a big data professor is worrying about radio.
While many of us are familiar with the leading role of the USA, China and Europe in the development of mobile technologies all the way up to 5G, countries around the world are seeing their opportunity to contribute in new ways to the next generation of telecoms. The past six months have seen not just statements of intent but concrete actions to bring countries and regions into the 6G fold.

Enterprise services are a focus in both 5G and 6G. However, a major challenge lies in being able to deliver end-to-end quality of service guarantees, particularly where services travel across more than one operator network. Open RAN and open networks should help, but will that even be a 6G phenomenon?
InterDigital’s VP Milind Kulkarni summarises the state of conversation and ambition around 6G at present, timelines, and some of the demands this implies for the design of the new networks.
At October’s 6GSymposium Andreas Roessler from Rohde & Schwarz offered his thoughts on how to accelerate the path to more market-ready propositions. This 7-minute video lays the groundwork.
History might not repeat itself, but at least for enterprise security it looks likely to rhyme in the coming decade. This interview examines the business drivers and challenges underpinning, and sometimes hindering, new approaches to enterprise security as we move from the 5G to 6G eras.
Growth predictions for telecoms providers are pessimistic about the potential for enterprise in the next five years, despite the hype and hope for enterprise services that the advent of 5G brought. What has gone wrong and how do we fix it?
