From Security-Enhanced 5G Systems to Security-By-Design 6G Systems – Rakuten Symphony

In this white paper, Dr David Soldani explores the differences between security and privacy integration in 5G and 6G, outlining how the two generations differ and also makes some practical recommendations for how to pursue the development of secure telecoms today.

Implications of Evolution Towards 6G Supply Chains: New Research

Findings from both consumer and
enterprise applications will likely trickle into the development of 6G; as of 2021, there are
already several market trends that will likely become the norm for any cellular generation
going forward. These trends will transform the supply chain considerably, create new
spheres of influence, and create opportunities for new entrants.

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.
