The (Wireless) Logic of IoT Consolidation Excluding the MNOs

While the Internet of Things is growing well annually, these days the operator community doesn’t talk too much about it. Wireless Logic’s Paul Bullock discusses the business challenges facing MNOs in taking advantage of IoT and sets out a possible future for the sector.

6G, Share Prices, and a Blood Transfusion

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.

A “Physical Layer Machine Learning Applications Want To See”?

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.

IEEE & Queens University Belfast: Road to 6G, 10 Physical Layer Challenges

This paper by Queens University Belfast, published in the IEEE Communications Magazine, looks at some of the fundamental problems that pertain to key physical layer enablers for 6G. This includes highlighting challenges related to intelligent reflecting surfaces, cell-free massive MIMO and THz communications. Our analysis covers theoretical modeling challenges, hardware implementation issues and scalability among others. The paper concludes by delineating the critical role of signal processing in the new era for wireless communications.

The Gaming Revolution of the 2020s is Not What You Think

The Gaming Revolution of the 2020s is Not What You Think

“Cloud gaming has become the killer service for 5G,” says Blacknut CEO Olivier Avaro. The company sits in a unique position to discuss the interplay between telecom networks and the gaming industry.
But if you are pinning your hopes on VR as the next revolution in gaming… think again. It’s going to be both more pragmatic and more transformational than you think.

7 Emerging Themes in 6G During 2021 So Far

7 Emerging Themes in 6G During 2021 So Far

While much is still unknown about what comes beyond 5G, the past six months have seen some considerable leaps forward in the thinking around it. 6GWorld has been fortunate to be involved with many conversations, webinars, events like the 6GSymposium, and more, and there are a number of patterns in people’s thinking that seem to be emerging. Excitingly, there is a clear awareness of how radically different the telecoms sector will need to be and how differently it will need to do things, in order to deliver in a way that works for business, society, and the environment.

Apples and Applications: Use Cases Uniting Enterprise and Telco at the Edge

Apples and Applications: Use Cases Uniting Enterprise and Telco at the Edge

Ahead of Mobile World Congress, 6GWorld sat down with Susan James, Senior Director of Telecoms Strategy at Red Hat, to talk about the early indicators of adoption they are seeing in edge networking and how that relates to other trends such as private networking.
We examine the realities of edge networking technology, analytics and the business models that might make it viable.

5G-IA: European Vision for the 6G Network Ecosystem

5G-IA: European Vision for the 6G Network Ecosystem

Overall, 6G is expected to be a self-contained ecosystem with flexible management and control and automated human-like decision-making processes. It will build on top of the current human-centric network architecture where service-specific variations (vertical-oriented network slices) apply to a holistic self-learning service provisioning platform, engaging any type of connectivity and device.

KPIs such as affordability, scalability and sustainability drive the design of the 6G era, while the network programmability (introduced in5G), stands in the epicentre of a self-learning network management controlled by the infrastructure owners and the vertical service providers.

Building Towards 2024: 6G and KRIS X Biome

Building Towards 2024: 6G and KRIS X Biome

The KRIS X Biome project aims to create cities that combine renewable living, technology, and biodiversity in a destination that’s both educational and entertaining. The ultimate aim would be to build one on every continent, bringing together different aspects of regional ecologies. The first, however, is set to be in North America, not far from New York City.

This fledgling project aims to foster research into beyond-5G, and beyond-6G, technologies and services as the project builds out.

Video Interview – 6G Fundamentals and Vision with David Soldani

This conversation was based on Dr David Soldani’s recent paper “6G Fundamentals: Vision and Enabling Technologies Towards Trustworthy Solutions and Resilient Systems”, which brings together an overall view of what a network in 6G might end up requiring and looking like. This video introduces a few of the ideas expressed in the paper, including the need to combine machine learning and machine cognition, and how a network that is designed to sense can also be better at protecting privacy.

You can read or download the whole paper in the ‘Latest Research’ section of 6GWorld.

6G Fundamentals: Vision and Enabling Technologies

6G Fundamentals: Vision and Enabling Technologies

This research paper by Dr David Soldani of the University of New South Wales explores what a 6G network might credibly look like and how it can be made to function.
The author’s vision is that, by 2030, “all intelligence will be connected following a defence-in-depth strategy – augmented by a zero-trust model – through digital twinning, using B5G/6G wireless, and machine reasoning will meet machine learning at the edge”.

The paper includes discussions of a wide ranging set of issues and ideas, including an extensive set of links to further reading, videos and articles and illustrations of key concepts.
