6G in 2024: What To Look For & Why

RECORDED WEBINAR

ABOUT THIS WEBINAR

2023 highlighted some of the disparities between stakeholders and their different concepts of what 6G can or should be – a source of societal and economic growth (governments); a set of revolutionary new capabilities and services (R&D); or a gradual set of inexpensive upgrades from 5G (Operators). At the same time, it’s still unclear what end-users would want enough to pay for.

2024 is a year to work through these issues before we go too far through consensus and standardisation, so that we can deliver not just technologies but services and business models that deliver for end users and, as a result, everyone else in the industry supplying them.

So what does 2024 hold for the industry? What issues and activities can or should we see on the agenda to be confident things are going in the right direction?

Join our experts as we look ahead at what could or should happen in ’24 to identify the right track for the industry.

Doug has directed departments as large as 35 employees within InterDigital’s Research and Innovation organization where he has both administrative and technical planning responsibilities. He is currently directing a development team aiming to bring gigabit data rates, extreme low latency and ultra low power to next generation mobile devices. Key technologies of interest to Doug include millimeter wave (mmWave) and terahertz frequencies applied to small cell access and backhaul, and multi-access edge computing. Doug’s work has resulted in demonstrating InterDigital’s EdgeHaul platform - the world’s first WiGig-based mmWave mesh backhaul system that can wirelessly transport multi-gigabit-per-second data to small cells. He is the inventor of 14 granted patents with many additional patent applications pending. Doug also has prior experience working for Lockheed Martin in satellite communications systems where he developed wireless performance analysis software and validated system designs prior to launch.
