Here’s What 6G Will Be, According to the Creator of Massive MIMO: Tom Marzetta, the director of NYU Wireless, explains how it will be the next level of human-to-human communication
Tom Marzetta is the director of NYU Wireless, New York University’s research center for cutting-edge wireless technologies. Prior to joining NYU Wireless, Marzetta was at Nokia Bell Labs, where he developed massive MIMO. Massive MIMO (short for “multiple-input multiple-output”) allows engineers to pack dozens of small antennas into a single array. The high number of antennas means more signals can be sent and received at once, dramatically boosting a single cell tower’s efficiency.
Europe moves towards 6G by Peter Stuckmann, Future Connectivity Systems head, European Commission
The European Commission has adopted a legislative proposal for the upcoming European partnership on Smart Networks and Services (SNS) towards 6G, writes Peter Stuckmann, Future Connectivity Systems head of unit at the European Commission in a blog post on the Europa website.
Nokia Leads a 6G Wireless Project for European Union
Nokia Oyj is leading a group of companies and universities in a European Union funded wireless project called Hexa-X to help jump-start a new generation of mobile technology that’s already being called 6G.
With 5G Rollout Lagging, Research Looks Ahead to 6G
Amid a 5G rollout that has faced its fair share of challenges, it might seem somewhat premature to start looking ahead at 6G, the next generation of mobile communications. But 6G development is happening now, and it’s being pursued in earnest by both industry and academia.
