ETSI announced the launch of a new Industry Specification Group on RIS. 6GWorld went behind the story with Chairman Arman Shojaeifard
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.
This White Paper, the very first initiative in this domain, aims to identify aspects of security where the nature of edge computing leaves typical industry approaches to cloud security insufficient.
Edge computing environments are characterized by a complex multi-vendor, multi-supplier, multi-stakeholder ecosystem of equipment and both HW and SW devices. Given this overall level of system heterogeneity, security, trust and privacy are key topics for the edge environments.
In this heterogeneous scenario, end-to-end MEC security considers the impact on the elements coming from all stakeholders involved in the system. The paper provides an overview of ETSI MEC standards and current support for security, also complemented by a description of other relevant standards in the domain (e.g. ETSI TC CYBER, ETSI ISG NFV, 3GPP SA3) and cybersecurity regulation potentially applicable to edge computing. The White Paper concludes on a general perspective of future evolutions and standard directions on MEC security.
The ETSI Technology Radar highlights the probable technology trends that may influence ETSI’s quest to remain at the forefront of ICT standardization. The document is intended to promote awareness and discussion of the impact and evolution of such technology trends among ETSI members and the ICT community as a whole.
The ETSI Technology Radar White Paper touches on areas of technology development including: 5G Evolution, Artificial Intelligence, Autonomous Networks, Cybersecurity, Privacy and Trust, Distributed Ledgers (Blockchain), Dynamic Data, eXtended Reality (XR), Internet of Things, Quantum Computing, Encryption, Networks, Robotics and Autonomous Systems.
As well as describing the selected technology trends, it also examines the affinity of each technology with ETSI’s current work, providing potential timescales for the technology evolution and recommendations to the ETSI community as to how the technology standardization activates could be developed.
Reaching 6G will take a largely unified approach, according to experts speaking on its eventual delivery at the Spring 2021 6GSymposium.
