Network evolution towards the 6G era –
The world has changed quickly in recent times, and the pace of change is only accelerating. To address these rapid changes, we have been looking at the trends and the direction of technological change in a company-wide exercise we call our Technology Vision 2030. Our Technology Vision 2030 summarizes how we see the world evolving and guides our technology strategy going forward. As we move from the 5G era onwards to 5G-Advanced, and leading up to the 6G era, the communications fabric will need to be architected differently.
Going into 2030, we believe that two of the most impactful drivers that will dominate network traffic and shape the evolution of networks will be human augmentation and digital-physical fusion.
