Transforma Insight: Sustainability in New & Emerging Technologies

Sponsored by InterDigital, Transforma Research’s 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.

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.

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.

6G: Breaking Out of Our Cells?

6G: Breaking Out of Our Cells?

6G might effectively ignore the Shannon limit. Xiaohu You of Southeast University has proposed a number of techniques to improve not only data rates but reliability and spectrum re-use that can help meet 6G’s stringent demands… by breaking down the concept of cellular communications itself.
