Delivery Robots, New Revenue Streams and Carbon Reduction: Today and Tomorrow in IoT

IoT manufacturer Robustel has recently been writing about the growing adoption of Autonomous Guided Vehicles (AGVs) around the world, in use cases such as delivery robots or for spraying disinfectant. 6GWorld caught up with James Mack, their VP of Marketing for APAC,...

CXO Interview: The Evolution of Private Networks

6GWorld spoke to BAI Communications’ Brendan O’Reilly about the evolution of private networks and the directions it is taking for the future. We discuss the commercial drivers behind private networking; the role of Edge, Cloud and IT integration; the risk of legacy in private networks; and where the business is headed.

“6G Fundamentals” – IEEE 6G Lecture Upcoming

Following the release of Dr David Soldani’s white paper, “6G Fundamentals: Vision and Enabling Technologies -From 5G to 6G Trustworthy and Resilient Systems”, the University of New South Wales professor will be giving an online talk hosted by IEEE to discuss the observations and conclusions.

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.

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

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

This White Paper is a major milestone at a time when the 5G IA is preparing for the next chapter in the mobile communications story with the new ‘Smart Networks and Services’ (SNS) European Partnership in the framework of the Horizon Europe programme.

The SNS Partnership will contribute to enable the digital and green transitions and will allow European players to develop the technology capacities for 6G systems as the basis for future digital services.

The White Paper covers key areas related to 6G research from a technical, societal, policy and business perspective providing a vision for the future networks and services.

ETSI – MEC Security White Paper: Status of Standards Support & Future Evolutions

ETSI – MEC Security White Paper: Status of Standards Support & Future Evolutions

This White Paper, the very first initiative in this domain, aims to identify aspects of security where the nature of edge computing leaves typical industry approaches to cloud security insufficient.
Edge computing environments are characterized by a complex multi-vendor, multi-supplier, multi-stakeholder ecosystem of equipment and both HW and SW devices. Given this overall level of system heterogeneity, security, trust and privacy are key topics for the edge environments.
In this heterogeneous scenario, end-to-end MEC security considers the impact on the elements coming from all stakeholders involved in the system. The paper provides an overview of ETSI MEC standards and current support for security, also complemented by a description of other relevant standards in the domain (e.g. ETSI TC CYBER, ETSI ISG NFV, 3GPP SA3) and cybersecurity regulation potentially applicable to edge computing. The White Paper concludes on a general perspective of future evolutions and standard directions on MEC security.

Colt: The Evolving Path to Cloud Adoption

Colt: The Evolving Path to Cloud Adoption

Colt Telecoms has released a report compiled by Censuswide, exploring what is driving the next era of cloud adoption.
It surveyed 400 IT decision-makers and C-level executives, across Europe and Asia.

• There is an increase in cloud projects, driven by technology evolution and emerging solutions.
• Businesses have a hunger to transform digitally, reduce legacy standards and embrace a whole new generation of compute, connectivity and partnerships.
• APIs and edge computing were some of the most significant elements according to respondents.
