This research paper by Dr David Soldani of the University of New South Wales explores what a 6G network might credibly look like and how it can be made to function.

The author’s vision is that, by 2030, “all intelligence will be connected following a defence-in-depth strategy – augmented by a zero-trust model – through digital twinning, using B5G/6G wireless, and machine reasoning will meet machine learning at the edge”.

The paper includes discussions of a wide ranging set of issues and ideas, including an extensive set of links to further reading, videos and articles and illustrations of key concepts. Sections include:
