Filling in the gaps for next-generation wireless solutions

The transition from 4G to 5G brought major advances in wireless communications. With 6G rapidly approaching, new technologies will be needed if we are to deliver on promises like zero-touch networks, spatial-division multiplexing, higher spectrum use, and dedicated, distributed resources. We may even have to rethink how networks are built.

Next mobile generation will highly consider IoT communication links and disaggregated connectivity, this latter as a beneficial feature for better and more efficient coverage. New modalities like NTN / HAPS are listed amongst the most promising for full coverage. In addition, small-cell deployments will enable flexible and local connectivity as part of the 6G possible deployment.
