Empowering digital supply chain transformation by utilizing Industry 4.0, Smart Factories, Standards, Smart Contracts and Blockchains
As complex supply chains respond to unexpected shocks, the collection and sharing of data is becoming more urgent and complicated, both to uphold contracts and to enable flexibility. The University of Derby's Raj Thakar proposes how this might be handled.
We can learn a great deal about what 6G may need to deliver and the shape of the industries it will be serving by speaking to thought leaders working to revamp how those industries work.
In this, the first of a series, we speak to Jorrit Aafjes, CEO of making.com.
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.
