While the World Braces for 5G Connectivity, 6G is Still on the Way

Everyone is still preparing for 5G connectivity, the next generation still looms, and that is, of course – 6G.

The sixth generation of wide-area wireless technology will represent a change in transmission or encoding. A new report titled “6G: The Network of Technology Convergence” outlines the key attributes of the 6G vision, its foundational and enabling technologies, and the potential it will deliver to industries and economies alike.

Drafted by ABI Research, 6GWorld, and InterDigital Inc. (NASDAQ: IDCC, Forum), the report identifies the three types of technology convergences emergent in the 6G vision.

1: The convergence of communications and computing known as 6G native intelligence, where AI and computing are integral parts to system architecture.

2: The telecommunications convergence by which 6G becomes a network of networks for access technologies to enable seamless information flows between individuals, devices, and infrastructures.

3: The unique mix between virtual and physical spaces as we move towards 6G-enabled ecosystems like the metaverse.
InterDigital CTO Henry Tirri explained that each generation of wireless has fundamentally enhanced our ability to communicate, but 6G will revolutionize how consumers, networks, and devices communicate with and amongst each other.

“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 road mapping.”

6GWorld’s Managing Editor Alex Lawrence added that when we think about 6G as a network of convergences, it is the natural endpoint of a variety of existing trends within telecoms, computing and more.

“Each of those trends taken alone is making ripples across the telecoms industry and beyond; the interplay between them will set off second-order and third-order effects on business and society that we can barely start to imagine today.”

Do you think 6G will make waves? Is it even something you’re thinking about before 5G is even widely accepted at this point? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
