Last week BT issued a press release about its trials of hollow core fibre. 6GWorld spoke to Professor Andrew Lord, BT’s Head of Optical Research, to dig behind the headlines and uncover a wide variety of implications for 6G networks and their providers.
The twelfth and final 6G White Paper in 6G Flagship’s 2020 edition covers key topic areas of RF, radio transceiver implementation, radio signal propagation, semiconductor technologies and integrated circuits, antennas, packaging, optical communications, and RF testing.
Spectrum in the 4400-5000 MHz range is of interest for mobile services, and although the market is at an early stage, an increasing number of countries are considering this spectrum for IMT. Sub-bands in the 4400-5000 MHz range have coprimary mobile allocation. At WRC-19 over 40 countries identified some or all of the spectrum in this range for IMT. A few countries have assigned spectrum in this range already.
The charts in this document show GSA’s current understanding of the state of mobile operator licensing around the world at 4400 MHz to 5000 MHz
Early 6G conversations predict ingenious ways for people to interact with their surroundings, including instantaneous communication, connected robotics, and wireless artificial intelligent interactions. This is the first part of an interview with Roger Nichols, Keysight’s 6G program manager, who discussed his perspective of what 6G will be and how to make the vision of 6G a reality.
