EDPS: Transitioning From 5G To 6G


At the recent EDPS, the keynote on the second day was by Mallik Tatipamula. He is the CTO of Ericsson Silicon Valley and also has experience all over the telecom industry with stints at F5, Juniper Networks, Cisco, Motorola, Nortel, and the Indian Institute of Technology Madras. Mallik started with a potted history of mobile. You may already know all this, and I've covered my version ... » read more

Making 5G More Reliable


The rollout of 5G is a complex and monumental effort involving multiple separate systems that need to function flawlessly together in real-time, making it difficult to determine where problems might arise, or how and when to test for them. Investments in 5G have been underway for the better part of a decade, and the technology is considered the next huge growth opportunity for mobile devices... » read more

L5 Adoption Hinges on 5G/6G


Truly self-driving cars don’t yet exist, and research shows many consumers are wary of them anyway. What will it take to make fully autonomous cars possible? And how can automakers convince consumers to adopt such vehicles? Experts say the answer to both questions could lie in wireless communication networks. That’s because such networks offer a workaround to a major obstacle in autonomo... » read more

Chipmakers Model AI For Radio Access Networks


The chips that power and connect smartphones are now foundational to a disparate portfolio of daily tasks we take for granted, from accessing the internet to snapping a photo or asking Siri or Google if rain is in the forecast. Most people don’t think twice about the conflicting demands these tasks can place on semiconductors, but for engineers at leading chip manufacturers, this balancing ac... » read more

Advances In Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces Hardware Architectures: Beyond 5G/6G


This technical paper titled "Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces for Wireless Communications: Overview of Hardware Designs, Channel Models, and Estimation Techniques" is from researchers at IEEE. The paper's abstract states "we overview and taxonomize the latest advances in RIS [reconfigurable intelligent surfaces] hardware architectures as well as the most recent developments in the modelin... » read more

Risks Rise As Robotic Surgery Goes Mainstream


As robotic-assisted surgery moves into the mainstream, so do concerns about security breaches, latency, and system performance. In the operating room, every second is critical, and technology failures or delays can be life-threatening. Robotic-assisted surgery (RAS) has around for a couple decades, but it is becoming more prevalent and significantly more complex. The technology often include... » read more

5G: The Telecommunications Horizon and Homeland Security


Summary "Produced in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) HQ Emerging Technologies Policy team, this horizon scanning report provides information and insight into the future of fifth generation (5G) and sixth generation (6G) networking technologies and the associated impacts to the homeland security enterprise. The measures taken by DHS to manage and secure its networks w... » read more

6G: Going Beyond 100 Gbps To 1 Tbps


6G research is in its very early stages. The vision for what the International Telecommunication Union calls Network 2030 continues to take shape. While the industry is years away from starting the standards development process, subterahertz (sub-THz) territory is a focus of active research. Getting to 100 gigabits per second (Gbps) to 1 terabit per second (Tbps) data throughput is a key obj... » read more

The Gargantuan 5G Chip Challenge


Blazing fast upload and download speeds for cellular data are coming, but making the technology function as expected throughout its expected lifetime is an enormous challenge that will require substantial changes across the entire chip ecosystem. While sub-6GHz is an evolutionary step from 4G LTE, the real promise of 5G kicks in with millimeter-wave (mmWave) technology. But these higher-freq... » read more

Sustainability, Ecosystems, And Consumer Requirements In 2022


Last December, my 2021 outlook focused on "industry transformations" across different verticals. I had referenced a lot of the ongoing transformations in hyperscale computing, aerospace/defense, automotive, and healthcare. 2021 didn't disappoint—most of what I discussed further accelerated pace. For instance, pretty much no booth felt complete at the annual Army AUSA event if they were not... » read more
