Nokia Today: A Peek into the Future of 6G


First, it was 3G, then 4G, now 5G, and now — you guessed it! — around 2030, the world will see the launch of 6G.

Nokia Today Host Tyler Kern spoke with Grace Koh, vice president of legislative affairs at Nokia, and Devaki Chandramouli, Next G Alliance (NGA) Steering Group co-chair.

Technology leaders will continue enhancing 5G for life-saving services and increasing economic benefit for consumers. Concurrently, leaders are looking at foundational requirements for 6G. Chandramouli said, “6G is envisioned to serve as a network that takes us from connectivity to togetherness, information to knowledge, and effectiveness to purpose.”

According to Chandramouli, the NGA will help accomplish this prediction through its purpose of advancing U.S. technology by bringing together industry players to drive innovation and cooperate with other international organizations. The NGA is divided into a full-members group, steering group, six working groups and two committees. The full-members group sets strategy and policies while the steering group oversees strategy implementation, provides steering recommendations and oversees the working groups. The working groups have various specific responsibilities.

Koh is a member of the policy committee, which sets a regulatory environment by interfacing with government and encouraging rules, laws and regulations that encourage innovation in the 6G world. “It’s very exciting to be able to show the government how they can participate in coordinating, leading and contributing to day-to-day activities like 6G development,” Koh shared.

As for the future, Koh stated: “By working together, of course we can accelerate innovation and leverage the research to solve the challenges and help the U.S. attain tech leadership but also develop 6G technology for the good of the mankind.”
