In order for the “6G dream” to come true as soon as possible, it is necessary to start mapping out solid steps with a long-term strategic vision right now.
It is predicted that at the earliest, 6G will be put into commercial use, but now we have heard a lot about it. This next generation of wireless technology is expected to deliver fast speeds, low latency, and more bandwidth to rapidly deliver large amounts of data across smart networks and decentralized storage. This dramatically increases productivity and drives new opportunities in automation, artificial intelligence (AI), and the Internet of Things (IoT).

We can expect 6G technology to support businesses the way 4G in 2009 powered Instagram, Uber, DoorDash, Venmo and many more. 6G will become a fundamental part of every aspect of daily life from education, healthcare, banking, to shopping… as well as enhancing response to emergencies and disasters, and at the same time applications in scientific research.
All of the above sounds very appealing, but there is a long way to go before 6G becomes a reality. To make 6G no longer a “future dream”, according to Mr. Ron Nersesian, CEO of Keysight technology company, must focus on the following 5 things.
Promote seamless network integration
6G requires major innovations in wireless connectivity, AI-enabled networks, circuit and device technologies, and intelligent distributed computing. Although 5G has now become the global standard, the seamless integration of all wireless networks (from Bluetooth to 5G), wired networks (from LAN to WAN) and even spatial networks -terrestrial network) is still very elusive. 6G requires next-generation wireless technology to seamlessly utilize these systems with flexibility in location and needs.
While AI is already used in a wide range of industrial applications today, we need to make AI an integral part of the 6G network architecture to optimize performance, efficiency, and flexibility. Finally, continued innovation in IoT, mobile broadband and highly reliable communications are other key factors in building the foundation for 6G.
Creating global industry standards
In addition to focusing on developing and enhancing 5G standards, we need to build the platforms and frameworks for the next generation. It is too early to have a detailed plan, but basically there must be an overarching strategy for the whole development process. Working towards a single global standard that applies to all industries and geographies will ensure consistency and economies of scale in 6G deployment.
Technological projects, trials, and demonstrations on the development of 5G standards serve as the basis for predicting 6G demand. Innovation initiatives such as the “6G Flagship” program, a global research and co-creation ecosystem for 5G adoption and 6G construction, are bringing together industry stakeholders to develop technologies. basic technology needed for 6G. These international collaborations will help reduce geopolitical tensions, ensuring that 6G is accessible to everyone.
Actively manage network security risks
Each new generation of wireless mobile must address a twofold cybersecurity challenge that includes redressing the vulnerabilities of the previous generation and addressing the new vulnerabilities of the next generation.
6G is a more complex set of usage patterns than 5G thus entails more software threats. As the IoT develops, billions of devices connected to the network will be a potential risk for cyberattacks.
All parties involved in the development of 6G, from mobile carriers to providers, from customers to OTT application developers need to adopt some new security standards, participate in testing and training processes to implement network security at every level.
Robust standards, network security, testing solutions, and network visibility will help eliminate risks in 6G development and ecosystem-wide operations.
According to Ron Nersesian, CEO of software maker Keysight Technologies, we have a responsibility to integrate cybersecurity into the software architecture and development lifecycle to help identify vulnerabilities and make networks faster. Quick recovery if attacked.
Policymakers need to work with industry leaders to create platforms that drive the industry and protect users and their data across mission-critical applications in areas like vehicles. self-driving, healthcare, military, smart city…
The social, educational and economic gap between those who have access to the Internet and those who do not have is increasing. Europe’s 6G Hexa-X research initiative aims to bridge that digital divide, but making it accessible to rural areas or low-income people requires a public-private partnership system.
Empowering the next generation
To make 6G a reality, we need to train the next generation of researchers, scientists, physicists and engineers. Electrical engineering, digital to radio, semiconductors will continue to play important roles in this area.
They need a holistic, multidisciplinary education to enter the technology-intensive path. Education companies and institutions should work together to close the skills gap by strengthening STEM curricula – a system of subjects that equips learners with the necessary knowledge and skills related to fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and highlighting its unique and rewarding opportunity to help build the future of wireless technology.

What will the ‘6G dream’ look like if it comes true?
Thinking about 5G’s ‘successor’ from now on seems a bit premature, but with the wireless network replacement cycle happening once every 10 years, 6G could launch as early as 2030.
