5G reality check: limitations and the need for 6G

With 5G deployments still in their early days, to many, it may seem too soon to be talking about 6G. But given the development of 5G began in 2010, now is the time for the telecoms industry to begin turning its attention to the next G.

The Telecoms.com Podcast: semiconductors, 6G and social media

It’s all about geopolitics this week as Iain and Scott enjoy their good fortune at the telecoms industry being such a strategic focus these days. They start with an update on the global semiconductor industry, which is feeling the strain from the trade war between the US and China. The nascent 6G standard is then discussed in the context of similar Balkanising pressures before they conclude with a review of US political posturing over social media censorship.

What should 6G be?

Work has started in earnest on 6G. Various bodies opine on what it should be – and broadly seem to conclude it is basically the same vision as 5G, but even bigger and better, if that is possible.

The Telecoms.com Podcast: 6G, cloud and Facebook

In the final pod of a remarkable year the guys get straight into appropriately dystopian subject matter.

The Telecoms.com Podcast: 6G, antitrust and Huawei

Turns out the lockdown is a bit more chilled this time, so no Zoom pod, you’ll be pleased to hear. Iain and Scott start by looking at the state of 6G, such as it is, and the reasons it’s already being spoken about. That leads on to discussion of some of the antitrust heat being experienced by US tech giants before they conclude with the traditional update on the Huawei saga.

What Should We Expect Beyond 5G?

It may still be the early days of 5G, with the first commercial networks going live less than two years ago, but certain quarters of the telecoms industry, especially those in academia and R&D, have already begun casting their eyes to the world beyond 5G. This Telecoms.com Intelligence monthly briefing, the final issue in its current format, examines these visions to see where consensus has already developed and where the jury is still out.

The Telecoms.com Podcast: Huawei, 6G and data privacy

The guys brave pestilent London once more, in their quest for podcasting perfection. The UK decision to ban Huawei from its 5G networks made that the unavoidable lead topic, before our intrepid podders move on to pontificate about 6G and conclude by considering the implications of a European Court ruling in the transfer of data to the US.

Samsung pitches for 6G leadership position

We might still be in the early days of 5G network deployment, but attention has already been afforded to 6G, with Samsung suggesting terahertz (THz) spectrum bands are critical.

The Telecoms.com Podcast: 5G race, semiconductors and Rogan podcast

This week’s pod starts with the exciting news that you can now access it on Spotify too. The guys start with a look at the increasingly politicised US 5G ecosystem, with even 6G now designated a matter of national strategic importance. They move on to the Balkanisation of the semiconductor industry prompted by US sanctions and conclude with a look at disruption in the podcast world following Spotify’s poaching of the Joe Rogan Experience.
