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.

An In-Depth Survey on Virtualization Technologies in 6G Integrated Terrestrial and Non-Terrestrial Networks – Arxiv

Terrestrial and Non-Terrestrial Network integration faces a number
of challenges that could be addressed through network virtualisation technologies such as Software-Defined Networking, Network Function Virtualization and network slicing. In this survey, we provide a comprehensive review on
the adaptation of these networking paradigms in 6G 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.

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?
