The Telco Value Chain In 6G: Predictions & Implications
About: The Telco Value Chain In 6G: Predictions & Implications
While 6G is a long time away, we can already see early signs of changes in the value chain, supply chain and competitive landscape which will remodel the telecoms ecosystem. 5G is being deployed on a large scale for consumer public networks, while cellular technologies are being adopted for enterprise use cases, providing precious knowledge and experience to the value chain for this new, promising market.
Findings from both consumer and enterprise applications will feed into the development of 6G; as of 2021, there are already several market trends that will likely become the norm for any cellular generation going forward. These trends will transform the supply chain considerably, create new spheres of influence, and create opportunities for new entrants.
Building upon a recent white paper from ABI Research, this interactive webinar brings together a diversity of thought leaders to discuss today’s trends and what they mean for your business.
Who should listen?
ICT professionals; telecoms networking professionals; experts in cloud, edge, mesh and fog computing; standards organisations; data management companies; application developers; regulators; data architects; security professionals; industry 4.0; smart cities; private networks; enterprise networks; semiconductor companies; chipset makers; device vendors.
