Guest Post: The Possible Effects of 6G Transition on the Labour Market

The evolution of cellular technology has had a major effect on the economy and labour market. Since the introduction of 1G in 1979, there has been a constant advancement in this field. Although 6G technology is in the early R&D stages, it is already possible to evaluate its focus. It is also interesting to think of how it can shape the global economy, major industries, and workforce.

Transforma Insights: Sustainability in New & Emerging Technologies

Transforma Insights: Sustainability in New & Emerging Technologies

Sponsored by InterDigital, Transforma Insights’ new report shows the impact that emerging technologies will have on sustainability within the telecoms sector and other sectors. The cost-benefits are complex and vary significantly, but overall digitalisation should support a much smaller ecological footprint.

In total, new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things will save approaching 1.8 PWh of electricity in 2030, and an additional 3.5 PWh of (hydrocarbon) fuel use, resulting in total savings of 5.3 PWh of energy. Offset against this benefit is 653TWh of electricity consumption required to power solutions deployed using new technologies.

For comparison, the total electricity consumption of the global ICT industry is forecast to increase to around 8 PWh by 2030, meaning that together new technologies will generate energy savings equal to around 58% of the total power consumption of the ICT industry.
