WILMINGTON, Delaware, Feb. 07 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As the world welcomes commercial deployments of 5G and the many resulting benefits, the industry has begun to seriously explore the next generation of wireless, 6G. A new report from ABI Research, 6GWorld and InterDigital, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDCC) titled “6G: the technological convergence networkdescribes the key attributes of the 6G vision, its fundamental and enabling technologies, and the potential it will bring to industries and economies.

Unlike 5G and previous generations of wireless technologies aiming to steer network performance towards higher bandwidth, lower latency and greater reliability, 6G is envisioned as an enabling platform for new innovations. in the fields of computing, AI, connectivity, sensors, virtualization, etc. 6G is designed to meet higher demands for global coverage, greater spectral efficiency, reduced carbon footprint and more, and the report suggests that our existing paradigms must blend together to ensure end-to-end service delivery. new use cases in 6G.

The report identifies the three types of technological convergences emerging in the 6G vision. First, the article explores the convergence of communications and computing known as 6G native intelligence, where AI and computing are integral parts of the system architecture. Next, it details telecommunications convergence whereby 6G becomes a network of networks for access technologies to enable seamless information flows between people, devices and infrastructure. The third convergence is described as the unique blend between virtual and physical spaces as we move towards 6G-enabled ecosystems like the Metaverse.

To achieve this vision, 6G is being developed to create a foundation for computer, artificial intelligence and network technologies to seamlessly combine and structurally change the design of mobile infrastructure.

“Each generation of wireless has fundamentally improved our ability to communicate, but 6G will revolutionize how consumers, networks and devices communicate with each other,” said Henry Tirri, CTO, InterDigital. “6G promises to build critical bridges between physical and virtual spaces to enable new use cases while optimizing industry operations, and we continue to be deeply involved in this critical research and roadmap. “

“When we think of 6G as a network of convergences, it’s the natural end point for a variety of existing trends in telecommunications, computing and more,” said Alex Lawrence, editor at 6GWorld. “Each of these trends, taken in isolation, has implications in the telecommunications industry and beyond; the interaction between them will trigger second- and third-order effects on business and society that we can barely begin to imagine today.

The paper also expands on new use cases and potential market opportunities for 6G, including metaverse, avatar communications, sensor networks, and digital twins.
