6G Wireless

As 5G WIreless Rolls Out, Experts Look Ahead to 6G 

5G wireless is still on the way, but researchers are already beginning to plan for the sixth generation of wireless technology. A team of academic and industry experts in Finland has launched the 6Genesis Flagship Program (6GFP), an eight-year, $230 million project that will develop, implement, and test key enabling technologies needed for 6G.

The immediate 5G 'choke point': Rolling out 5G NR fast and efficiently

The arrival of 5G is elevating the visibility and relevancy of a wide range of innovative technologies across areas such as vRAN, SDN, NFV, IoT, AI/ML, MEC, network slicing, blockchain, quantum cryptography and more. Although the core 5G network architecture will evolve significantly in the coming years based on some of these technologies, the immediate challenge and choke point facing service providers is more fundamental, and some would say more mundane. The here-and-now problem that needs to be solved is how to deploy 5G New Radio (NR) and the related infrastructure quickly, with high quality, and as cost-effectively as possible.
