As an Easter treat, 6GWorld sat down with Kimberley Parsons-Trommler, head of Germany’s Thinknet 6G organisation. We discussed the research the organisation conducted with a variety of industries to understand what 6G will need to deliver. There were some very unexpected outcomes and some previously-undiscussed issues we need to consider.
6GWorld spoke to Greg Young, Trend Micro’s VP Cybersecurity, for a catch-up on the trends that will shape the security landscape for 6G. In a quarter-hour we gallop through a wide range of issues and ideas, including securing network software, the integration of enterprise and telecoms security and not least the impact of the war in Ukraine.
Ray Dolan, CEO of Cohere Technologies, comes across as something of a paradox. While he leads a company that is highly invested in the future of wireless radio communications, he doesn’t believe that questions about the radio will be central to 6G. In a recent interview with 6GWorld, Dolan outlined several arguments underlining why that is the case.
What does it mean to be entering an era of immersive data? How does that change the business and operating models of companies that used to be all about communications? This interview with Marc Price of Matrixx explores the fundamentals of making money in the coming decade.
At MWC this year, Canonical and Vodafone announced a partnership to test a new, cloud-driven “smartphone”. Such initiatives have been proposed for over a decade – what are the chances this becomes a reality?
Alongside the evolution from 5G to 5G-Advanced and beyond in bodies such as 3GPP, other solutions are being developed that can help support demands for connectivity and speed. 6GWorld spoke to two of the companies exhibiting at MWC who are looking at ways to connect that can exist alongside evolving cellular connectivity.
When people share visions for what 6G might be, it is taken as read that there will be a standardisation process. What that process might look like, and who is involved, could be very different from before. 6GWorld talks to ETSI’s David Boswarthick about the pressures standardisation faces when delivering on future generations.
Personal data laws are a relatively new invention and is still a wild west. As governments everywhere underline the need for greater digital trust, can consumers and regulators even be sure current laws are being followed? This interview with IMDEA Networks’ Narseo Vallina-Rodriguez highlighted some striking stories.
Without dramatic change in the processes and models of telecoms infrastructure management, the spread of coverage and capacity to meet the projected demands of 5G and 6G will founder. 6GWorld spoke to experts at Parallel Wireless and BT about a variety of methods to reinvent the cost bases of telecoms infrastructure during the coming decade.
