This article is part of the CW EMEA issue of September-November 2022
Digitisation is all around us and is more prevalent every day as people discover all the things they can do remotely, after being forced to do so during the Covid-19 pandemic. To this end, tech teams in the technology hotbed of Grenoble, France, are preparing for a paradigm shift brought about by 6G technology. Much of the foundation of this progress is digital connectivity. 5G is rolling out now and will probably take several more years to be fully deployed. In the meantime, there will be an increase in demand for bandwidth and services. Much of this demand will come from internet of things (IoT) applications and the growing number of robotic devices, which will far surpass the number of devices used directly by human beings. People are dreaming up new services every day. Many of these services require very high bandwidth and low deterministic latency – which means the signals will be propagated not only quickly but predictably. The metaverse is just one example of a new paradigm that will require a much closer connection ...
