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.

Conceptualizing Security in a 6G World

Conceptualizing Security in a 6G World

The physical world of 2030 and beyond will be more networked, digitised and automated than ever before, depending on connectivity and AI to function. How do we make sure that bad actors cannot exploit this to endanger lives and economies?

Commissioned by 6GWorld, this ABI Research report maps out the interplay between security challenges and the evolution beyond 5G networks, including recommendations for action today and further reading.

Editor’s Note: 6G – Some Assembly Required

Editor’s Note: 6G – Some Assembly Required

The 6G Hype Cycle is being pedalled fast these days, it seems. Is there a genuine underlying need for this? We argue yes (of course), but voices from beyond telecoms do too. A whole new set of stakeholders has to pull together if we want to build something fit for purpose.

Nokia: Communications in the 6G Era

Nokia: Communications in the 6G Era

In this paper, we attempt to paint a broad picture of
communication needs and technologies in the timeframe of 6G. The future of connectivity
is in the creation of digital twin worlds that are a true representation of the physical and
biological worlds at every spatial and time instant, unifying our experience across these
physical, biological and digital worlds. New themes are likely to emerge that will shape 6G
system requirements and technologies, such as: (i) new man–machine interfaces created
by a collection of multiple local devices acting in unison; (ii) ubiquitous universal computing
distributed among multiple local devices and the cloud; (iii) multi-sensory data fusion to
create multi-verse maps and new mixed-reality experiences; and (iv) precision sensing
and actuation to control the physical world.

IET: 6G For Policymakers

IET: 6G For Policymakers

The IET recently published a white paper arguing that taking steps towards 6G has the potential to renew national infrastructure, build a better society and more… given the right policy environment.

CxO Video Interview: Effective Partnerships Between Telcos & Other Industries

CxO Video Interview: Effective Partnerships Between Telcos & Other Industries

6GWorld had the pleasure of talking to two executives recently from very different companies working to forge partnerships between telecoms service providers and other industries. However, there are striking similarities in the evolutionary paths that they, and the operators they work with, have followed to create effective partnerships with players in other industries that allow operators to monetise their capabilities.

Automation, Employment & Basic Income

Automation, Employment & Basic Income

There have been repeated discussions about the role of automation in capitalist economies, especially as it affects the nature and availability of employment. On Saturday 13 February Geoff Crocker spoke to London Futurists about the impacts of automation to date and the potential impact on the economy and work in future.
