Delayering the business: is breaking up key to telco growth? – TM Forum

This report sets out to explore the benefits – and challenges – of structural separation and delayering, as well as defining those concepts and the specific characteristics of netcos, servcos and infracos. And it provides some case studies of CSPs that have embarked on those processes.

A physical layer security scheme for 6G wireless networks using post-quantum cryptography – Science Direct

This paper presents the design and implementation of an encryption scheme that ensures the confidentiality of data transmission in the physical layer of 6G networks. Our findings indicate that the proposed scheme offers satisfactory security protection against eavesdropping attacks by significantly enhancing the confidentiality of the transmitted signal.

Context-Aware Spectrum Coexistence of Terrestrial Beyond 5G Networks in Satellite Bands – Arxiv

Spectrum sharing between terrestrial 5G and incumbent networks in the satellite bands presents a promising avenue to satisfy the ever-increasing bandwidth demand of the next generation wireless networks. However, protecting incumbent operations from harmful interference poses a fundamental challenge. This paper proposes a context-aware method of managing interference.

The 6G Architecture Landscape – A European perspective – 3GPP

The 6G Architecture Landscape – A European perspective – 3GPP

The European networking research community has started a new program along with 33 projects on the Smart Networks and Service (SNS) programme that will focus on 5G advanced and 6G. The 5G/B5G Architecture Working Group (WG), as part of the 5G PPP Initiative, is identifying and capturing novel trends and key technological enablers for the realization of the 5G and 6G architecture. The main findings and results of the Architecture WG are now captured in this white paper, which presents a consolidated view from European perspective on the technical directions for the architecture design in the 6G era.

Near-Field MIMO Communications for 6G: Fundamentals, Challenges, Potentials, and Future Directions – Tsinghua

Near-Field MIMO Communications for 6G: Fundamentals, Challenges, Potentials, and Future Directions – Tsinghua

In this paper a team from Tsinghua University investigate emerging near-field communication techniques. They address two types of recent studies in near-field communications: techniques addressing the challenges and those exploiting the potential
in near-field regions. Their principles, recent progress, pros and cons are discussed, alongside several open problems and future research directions for near-field communications.

The 6G Ambient IoT Opportunity For Supply Chain – ABI

The 6G Ambient IoT Opportunity For Supply Chain – ABI

A new class of Ambient Internet-of-Things (IoT) technology, which delivers pervasive connectivity to products that were previously disconnected, can help supply chains provide that much-needed granular real-time visibility.

In this whitepaper, ABI Research provides comprehensive insight into how Ambient IoT enables most items in a supply chain to be connected to the Internet, delivering real-time triggers and information about location and condition at a minimal cost, using existing wireless infrastructure, without human intervention.

3GPP Rel-19 Toward 6G – Ofinno

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.

A Survey on the Use of Blockchain for Future 6G: Technical Aspects, Use Cases, Challenges and Research Directions – Researchgate

A Survey on the Use of Blockchain for Future 6G: Technical Aspects, Use Cases, Challenges and Research Directions – Researchgate

We present a high-level view of the role of blockchain for 6G trends
and requirements. Following that, we conduct an in-depth study
on how the blockchain can provide a secure, transparent, and
decentralised underpinning to various technical aspects and use
cases of 6G. Thereafter, we discuss the deployment challenges
to be faced
