Do vertical industries really need 6G?

Dr. Andreas Mueller is the Head of Communication and Network Technology in the Corporate Research Department of Robert Bosch GmbH in Stuttgart, Germany and at the same time the Bosch Chief Expert for Communication Technologies for the IoT. In addition to that, he is coordinating the Industrial 5G activities of Bosch across the different business units. He also serves as General Chair of the “5G Alliance for Connected Industries and Automation” (5G-ACIA), the globally leading initiative for driving and shaping Industrial 5G.

At the first edition of the 6G Wireless Foundations Forum (6GWFF), hosted by EURECOM’s Communication Systems Department on 1-2 July 2021, he spoke about 'Do vertical industries really need 6G?'. The video from the talk is embedded at the bottom of the post.

During the talk, he also introduced the concept of Non-Public Networks (NPN) 2.0, which is transitioning the NPN islands in 5G to a Network of NPNs in 6G.

He also talked about Open RAN and its potential for Industrial networks as well as moving into Terahertz (THz) frequency. Anyway, the talk is embedded below with some additional links to explore at the end of the post.
