This is the leading market research report focused on sixth generation (6G) technology, solutions, applications and services. The report evaluates the anticipated technical direction for what is likely to come beyond 5G with emphasis on the anticipated economic impacts and opportunities for the information and communications technology ecosystem. This includes solutions, applications and services that vendors are likely to develop for ICT service providers that involve 6G technologies.

The report provides a vision into the evolution of communications, applications, content and commerce in a post-6G world such as the evolution of networking, service provider business models, and the relationship between wireless and other facets of ICT such as intelligence, computing, and analytics. The report provides qualitative and quantitative analysis for the 2020 to 2030 time-frame.

Starting in 2018, the publisher began to formulate a vision for wireless and networking beyond 5G. Working independently this market research firm published its first 6G market research report titled Sixth Generation Cellular: Looking Beyond 5G to the 6G Technology Market in June 2019. This ground-breaking research represented an initial investigation into the upcoming 6G technology market. This research built upon our extensive analysis in LTE, 5G, and computing (core cloud, edge computing, HPC, and quantum), and other related areas such as artificial intelligence and AI support of other technologies.

6G Flagship, an organization funded in part by Academy of Finland with an overall budget of 251 million Euros to study 6G from 2018 to 2026, published the white paper titled “Key Drivers and Research Challenges for 6G Ubiquitous Wireless Intelligence” in September 2019. This publisher subsequently became involved with efforts at the University of Oulu to develop a set of new white papers focused on various additional aspects of 6G.

This culminated in the publishing of “White Paper on 6G Networking” in June 2020. Written by an international expert group, and led by the Finnish 6G Flagship program, the paper sheds light on advanced features relevant to networking that are anticipated to shape the evolution beyond 5G, ultimately leading to 6G. Gerry Christensen, founder of the publishing firm, was one of the authors of the paper and his name is found among the contributors listed on the 6G Flagship website.

This publisher's involvement in 6G Flagship’s efforts has both solidified its initial research findings as well as provided an opportunity to network with wireless and networking experts from industry and academia. This makes this publisher the foremost market research authority in the emerging area of 6G technology, solutions, applications and services.
