What comes next? Is there a need for a new generation after 5G

Share

The talk begins with what has driven the successive generations of mobile technologies and what the reality of 5G is today with respect to the goals and vision that were originally envisioned. Then we discuss what are the gaps and challenges that would drive improvements to 5G, which would be called 5G+ or 5G++, etc, and perhaps one day there would be sufficient differentiation to be called 6G. We present two approaches to 6G: one approach being evolutionary and the other being paradigm shifting. We discuss the key requirements and technologies driven by software, AI/ML and blockchain that would play transformational roles in the development of 6G. We will discuss the notion of "innovations on the fly" rather than "wait for the next generation". Finally, we will present some innovative business models that could potentially disrupt the market.
