3GPP Rel-19 Toward 6G – Ofinno

Recently, 3GPP SA1 started various studies for Rel-19 5G systems. The outcome of Rel-19 may not only show the additional capability that the 5G system will offer, but also provide guidance on what the future 6G system needs to be capable of. This whitepaper discusses the ongoing areas of the Rel-19 studies.

The Development & Current Status of Error-Correcting Code

Shenghan Wu of StorArt shared this lecture on the challenges and potential future of error correction as we move from 5G to 6G.

Positioning and Sensing in 6G: Gaps, Challenges, and Opportunities – Arxiv

This paper presents a unified vision from stakeholders across the value chain in terms of both opportunities
and challenges for 6G positioning and sensing, as well as use cases, performance requirements, and gap analysis.

6G Applications and Use Cases – Next G Alliance

6G Applications and Use Cases – Next G Alliance

Next G Alliance explores four foundational areas of use cases (Everyday Living, Experience, Critical Roles, and Societal Goals), with the goal of better understanding how next-generation technology and its ecosystem can help improve the way humans live and interact.

Securing ArtificiaI Intelligence (SAI); The role of hardware in security of AI – ETSI

Securing ArtificiaI Intelligence (SAI); The role of hardware in security of AI – ETSI

ETSI’s newly published report gives an overview of the roles of general-purpose and specialized hardware, such as neural processors and neural networks, in enabling the security of AI. The report identifies hardware vulnerabilities and common weaknesses in AI systems and outlines the mitigations available in hardware to prevent attacks, as well as the general requirements on hardware to support the security of AI (SAI).

Dynamic infrastructure-as-a-service: A key paradigm for 6G networks and application to maritime communications – ITU

Dynamic infrastructure-as-a-service: A key paradigm for 6G networks and application to maritime communications – ITU

This paper highlights the missing elements in 5G that prevent evolutions of this technology from meeting future needs. Instead, they propose a disruptive communication paradigm to “ultimately enable the radical evolution of the current systems”, that interlink connectivity and computing seamlessly. They propose 6G should be able to “integrate and release, in a dynamic manner, heterogeneous types of resources, such as diverse types of network entities/nodes with nomadic, relaying, and multi-tenancy capabilities, which can enable demand-driven service provisioning, coverage extension, increased network capacity, and reduced energy consumption.”

6G: The Personal Tactile Internet And Open Questions for Information Theory – Information Theory Society

6G: The Personal Tactile Internet And Open Questions for Information Theory – Information Theory Society

The hype around 5G is, again, focusing on business customers, in particular in the context of campus networks. Consequently, 6G must provide an infrastructure to enable remote-controlled mobile robotic solutions for everyone—the Personal Tactile Internet. Which role can information and communication theory play in this context, and what are the big challenges ahead?

Penn State University: Researchers Engineer Electrically Tunable Graphene Device To Study Rare Physics – India Education Diary

Penn State University: Researchers Engineer Electrically Tunable Graphene Device To Study Rare Physics – India Education Diary

Researchers, co-led by the University of Manchester (UK) and Penn State (USA) have developed a tunable graphene-based platform that allows fine control over the interaction between light and matter in the terahertz (THz) spectrum to reveal rare phenomena known as exceptional points.

The work could advance optoelectronic technologies to better generate, control and sense light and potentially impact wireless communications, according to the researchers. They demonstrated a way to control THz waves, which could contribute to the development of beyond-5G wireless networks.

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.
