6G: how can we make it open, inclusive and focussed on the great global challenges?

In this EngShort we discuss the future of 6G. The quest for higher data speeds has been the driver of mobile technology change. We have seen this from 1G to 5G where increased data speeds have reduced download times. But this approach to next generation mobile technology is no longer sustainable. A new approach for 6G is needed and we are advocating for 6G to be seen as a framework for thinking long-term about the digital infrastructure that will be needed beyond 2030.

Why EngShorts?

As part of our aim to inspire, inform and influence, we have developed a new public-focused social media video campaign that highlights the role of engineering in addressing important societal challenges.

Emphasising our charitable remit, we hope to engage a new, younger audience and collect valuable information and data which can influence future work and help demonstrate how relevant the work at the IET is.

So, come over and follow us on Instagram and Facebook and comment, like, share and interact!
