Oppo: 6G AI-Cube Intelligent Networking

Oppo: 6G AI-Cube Intelligent Networking

In this newly-released white paper from the Oppo Research Institute, the authors posit the need for an additional plane in 6G telecoms networks, beyond the control and user planes. This additional plane would be the AI functional plane.

The white paper outlines the role, functions and integration of the proposed AI plane in a well-illustrated 20-page document.

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.
