The time to define the capabilities of 6G is now
BULDER, Colo., August 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — A new report from Guidehouse Insights explores the opportunity for the future 6G (sixth generation wireless) technology market. The report examines the various technologies that currently make up the 6G research effort, as well as some of the use cases that next-generation networks will enable.
Although 5G mobile networks have yet to be fully rolled out around the world, researchers and regulators are already developing and testing the technologies that will make up 6G. According to a new report from Guidehouse Insights, since the advent of mobile broadband, the demand for bandwidth and download speeds has increased steadily, as users have come to rely on mobile networks for increasingly intensive uses in consumer, enterprise and industrial environments.
“6G will build on the advancements that enable 5G to deliver smarter AI and enhanced computing,” it says Francesco Radicati, senior research analyst with Guidehouse Insights. “This will enable new use cases through the enhancement of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and digital twin capabilities.”
In order to prepare for the future of 6G, mobile companies must be prepared to pay more in 6G spectrum auctions; vendors should ensure that security is built into the technology from the start, and governments and vendors should prevent 6G fragmentation by collaborating in the pre-standard phase, according to the report.
report, 6G: Preparing for what’s coming in 2030, examines the various technologies that currently comprise the 6G research effort, as well as some of the use cases that will be enabled by next-generation networks. It also examines the possibility of a fragmented standard if stakeholders do not cooperate during the pre-standard phase and provides key recommendations for mobile companies, developers and governments in the years leading up to the rollout of 6G. An executive summary of the report is available for free download on the Guidehouse Insights website.
