The Roadmap of Communication and Networking in 6G for the Metaverse – IEEE

This paper aims to depict the roadmap to the Metaverse in terms of communication and networking in 6G, including illustrating the framework of the Metaverse, revealing the strict requirements and challenges for 6G to realize the Metaverse, and discussing the fundamental technologies to be integrated in 6G to drive the implementation of the Metaverse, including intelligent sensing, digital twin (DT), space-air-ground-sea integrated network (SAGSIN), multi-access edging computing (MEC), blockchain, and the involved security issues.

ITU WORKSHOP ON “IMT FOR 2030 AND BEYOND” – June 14th Presentations

On June 14th a select group of global stakeholders shared their visions to feed into the ITU’s plans for what the next generation of telecoms should look like. While attendance was strictly limited, the presentations shared are available on the meeting website, linked here.

Áika: A Distributed Edge System for AI Inference – MDPI

In this paper, we present Áika, a robust system for executing distributed
Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications on the edge. Áika provides engineers and researchers with
several building blocks in the form of Agents, which enable the expression of computation pipelines
and distributed applications with robustness and privacy guarantees.

Japan’s Beyond 5G Promotion Consortium White Paper “Message to the 2030s”

Japan’s Beyond 5G Promotion Consortium White Paper “Message to the 2030s”

The White Paper Subcommittee has considered Beyond 5G, which is expected to be commercialized around 2030, assuming future daily life of users and a wide range of usage scenarios that span many industries. Through this study with various perspective, we examined the requirements that a communication system as a social infrastructure should have. We also considered Beyond 5G key concepts, network requirements, capabilities, architectures, and key technologies based on usage scenarios and future technology.
Based on these studies, this white paper summarizes issues and expectations from each industry for Beyond 5G, capabilities required for Beyond 5G, and technological trends, etc.

Strategy Paper for Circular Economy: Network Equipment – GSMA

Strategy Paper for Circular Economy: Network Equipment – GSMA

This strategy paper analyses how the network equipment used within the telecommunications ecosystem can evolve towards a circular business model. This will involve co-operation with stakeholders along the whole of the value chain, beginning with changing perceptions of what is ‘waste’.

The aim of the shift towards greater circularity is to reduce environmental impacts while realising social and economic benefits at the same time.

NGMN – 6G USE CASES WHITE PAPER

NGMN – 6G USE CASES WHITE PAPER

The identification of 6G use cases is key to predicting major trends in future usage scenarios and will help to steer the needs and requirements for future generational change. Therefore, operators, technology suppliers and academic advisors in NGMN joined forces and contributed their views on which 6G use cases they predict will emerge in the future decade. The result is published in NGMN’s “6G Use Cases and Analysis” White Paper.

6G: The Network Of Technology Convergence

6G: The Network Of Technology Convergence

This ABI Research paper will elaborate on some potential market opportunities 6G will enable, notably the build-up towards the metaverse. Most importantly, it will define the 6G vision and the three types of convergence this vision will encapsulate, namely:

– Communications and computing convergence.
– The convergence of many access technologies to enable ubiquitous coverage around the globe.
– The convergence between virtual and physical spaces.

BEAT: Blockchain-Enabled Accountable Infrastructure Sharing in 6G and Beyond – Arxiv

BEAT: Blockchain-Enabled Accountable Infrastructure Sharing in 6G and Beyond – Arxiv

The primary challenges for future technologies are not just low-latency and high-bandwidth. The more critical problem Mobile Service Providers (MSPs) will face will be in balancing the inflated demands of network connections and customers’ trust in the network service, that is, being able to interconnect billions of unique devices while adhering to the agreed terms of Service Level Agreements (SLAs). To meet these targets, it is self-evident that MSPs cannot operate in a solitary environment. They must enable cooperation among themselves in a manner that ensures trust, both between themselves as well as with customers. In this study, we present the BEAT (Blockchain Enabled Accountable and Transparent) Infrastructure Sharing architecture. BEAT exploits the inherent properties of permissioned type of distributed ledger technology (i.e., permissioned distributed ledgers) to deliver on accountability and transparency metrics whenever infrastructure needs to be shared between providers. We also propose a lightweight method that enables device-level accountability.

The Transformation of Infrastructure: A New Space Race – Siemens

The Transformation of Infrastructure: A New Space Race – Siemens

No rivals, no rockets, no thrill-seeking billionaires – this is a race for earth’s space, set in our physical and digital infrastructure, the spaces where we work, live and move. This is a race against time – a race we can only win by working together. How do we coordinate these demands?

This 40-page report pulls together ideas from over 500 respondents in 10 countries.
