This research article, published in the “Journal of Telecommunications and the Digital Economy”, covers off some of the key elements for 6G’s development, including elements such as security by design.
Don’t Miss The Open RAN Boat!
This original piece of research by Sudhir Iyer examines the market forces supporting Open RAN, investigating whether Open RAN is indeed too late for realisation in 5G and what the value proposition truly is.
ETSI White Paper: Fibre Development Index: Driving Towards an F5G Gigabit Society
This White Paper will address the main driving forces for fibre investment, proposing a way forward for a
fibre development index (FDI), including the definition of country clusters that present similar stages of
development, requirements, and evolution paths. Finally, it proposes some future directions,
recommendations, and related actions.
With this White Paper, the authors intend to set the guidelines for an FDI and the fundamentals for
related standardization work in this scope.
Green Future Networks: Sustainability Challenges & Initiatives in Mobile Networks – NGMN
The NGMN Green Future Network project expands on the discussion of sustainability as outlined in the NGNM 5G White Paper v2.0 and is focused on the identification and mitigation of environmental impacts generated by the network part of the Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) sector.
Quantum Machine Learning: A Tutorial – ScienceDirect.com
This tutorial provides an overview of Quantum Machine Learning (QML), a relatively novel discipline that brings together concepts from Machine Learning (ML), Quantum Computing (QC) and Quantum Information (QI).
“6G Fundamentals” – IEEE 6G Lecture Upcoming
Following the release of Dr David Soldani’s white paper, “6G Fundamentals: Vision and Enabling Technologies -From 5G to 6G Trustworthy and Resilient Systems”, the University of New South Wales professor will be giving an online talk hosted by IEEE to discuss the observations and conclusions.
Oppo: 6G AI-Cube Intelligent Networking
In this newly-released white paper from the Oppo Research Institute, the authors posit the need for an additional plane in 6G telecoms networks, beyond the control and user planes. This additional plane would be the AI functional plane.
The white paper outlines the role, functions and integration of the proposed AI plane in a well-illustrated 20-page document.
IEEE & Queens University Belfast: Road to 6G, 10 Physical Layer Challenges
This paper by Queens University Belfast, published in the IEEE Communications Magazine, looks at some of the fundamental problems that pertain to key physical layer enablers for 6G. This includes highlighting challenges related to intelligent reflecting surfaces, cell-free massive MIMO and THz communications. Our analysis covers theoretical modeling challenges, hardware implementation issues and scalability among others. The paper concludes by delineating the critical role of signal processing in the new era for wireless communications.
Hexa-X: Gaps, Features & Enablers for B5G/6G Service Management & Orchestration
One of the Hexa-X projects’ earliest deliverables addresses the massively complex topic of service management and orchestration in a flexible, heterogeneous network of networks.
This paper outlines the current state of the art and, crucially, features a gap analysis outlining where further research is needed.
