Could the 6G Business Case Stumble on Deployment & Operational Support?

https://youtu.be/DpkD0gksA8I As well as scheduled 6GSymposium conference sessions, additional material includes this talk from Spirent's Stephen Douglas. While much conversation focusses on the air interface, spectrum or security, the telecoms environment has...

Putting the Human into Data-Driven Economies

Advertising-driven “attention economy” services reinforce an overused, but pithy, quotation that “If you’re not paying for the product, you are not the customer; you are the product being sold”. Regardless of the contested truth of that statement, the popularity of the sentiment reflects a public perception that the relationship between consumers and those using their data is in some way broken.

Is it possible to reformulate the relationship between data-oriented companies and public bodies and the customers whose data they use? According to a recent collaboration between the WEF and the City of Helsinki, yes.

CxO Interview: Disruption and Regulation in Global Mobile Payments

Digital economies function using at least three critical elements: The easy movement of information; the easy movement of money; and the rigorous management of identity. Founded in 2009, Boku is no newcomer to the world of mobile payments and has expertise in at least two of those three areas. So, when the opportunity arose to speak with Mark Stannard, Boku’s Chief Business Officer, 6GWorld™ leapt at the chance.

Guest Interview: Roger Nichols on 6G Impact and More

Guest Interview: Roger Nichols on 6G Impact and More

Early 6G conversations predict ingenious ways for people to interact with their surroundings, including instantaneous communication, connected robotics, and wireless artificial intelligent interactions. This is the first part of an interview with Roger Nichols, Keysight’s 6G program manager, who discussed his perspective of what 6G will be and how to make the vision of 6G a reality.

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

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.
