IEEE Tech Focus provides free access to valuable, unique content, including the latest complete articles and conference papers from the IEEE Communications Society Digital Library on a specific topic or technology. Past topics have included 5G, Massive MIMO, and Millimeter-Wave technology (mmWave).
We thank the companies who have provided sponsorships for this highly-technical content that allows us to give our communities a deep-dive into specific communications technology—and at no cost to readers.
The spectrum between 7 to 24 GHz is of great interest for 6G. However, there are many incumbents in those bands, so spectral sharing will be a critical technology to enable cellular use in those frequencies. Read some of the related research on this topic.
Next generation communications networks will leverage non-terrestrial networks (NTN) to provide global coverage. Read about what this technology is, the architectures it will leverage, how it will be used in 6G, and some of the techniques and technologies that will be used to enable NTN.
