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.

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.

Wireless Broadband Alliance Annual Industry Report 2022

Wireless Broadband Alliance Annual Industry Report 2022

The 2022 WBA Annual Industry Report takes a look at the industry trends and drivers. These include the addition of the 6GHz spectrum band in a growing number of countries around the world; the rapid commercial availability and market adoption of Wi-Fi 6 and 6E; and the flurry of innovative services ranging from the WBA OpenRoaming™ to Wi-Fi sensing. The Wi-Fi experience is becoming more deterministic. Wi-Fi 7 promises to supercharge Wi-Fi 6 with new techniques such as multi-link operation and time sensitive networking while leveraging spectrum dynamically with automatic frequency coordination. Wi-Fi is also increasingly integrated into cellular networks both at the access and core network level. Industries from hospitality to healthcare and transportation to smart cities are embracing this deterministic Wi-Fi to support new use cases and business models.
