Rival vendors Nokia and Ericsson are setting aside their differences and collaborating with SK Telecom on 6G research.
The rollout of 5G is just gaining traction but already some are looking at what shape the next generation might take.
“Collaboration between companies like this will be important as the technology and standard for 6G networks is yet to be clearly defined,” SK Telecom said.
SK Telecom has established itself as one of the world’s most pioneering operators. While somewhat disputed, SK Telecom is thought to have switched on the world’s first commercial 5G network alongside rival South Korean telco KT.
A partnership between such an innovative operator and two of the leading telecoms equipment manufacturers is a collaboration worth keeping an eye on.
