Building 6G

  We are seeing the term 6G more and more in research publications and at conferences, as well as in the general media. This raises a number of questions, including: – Why talk about 6G now when 5G has only just been launched? – When will 6G become available? – What will its new uses […]

Fibre-wireless performance

Introduction In 1889, Nikola Tesla created a high-frequency radio generator. A few years later, he tested the world’s first wireless communication. Then, in 1897, Guglielmo Marconi accomplished the first radio communication, using Morse code signals, over a distance of 14 km in Great Britain. This marked the beginning of the remarkable progression of radio communication through […]

Extend the life of IoT devices thanks to smartphones

It’s 6 pm and I’m leaving work on my bike. Using GPS coordinates, my connected watch lets my household know I’m on my way. Hang on, I’ve got a message from my fridge: “We need more butter and eggs”. Quick detour to the supermarket and I’m back home. Red alert from my son’s schoolbag: Oscar still […]

Orange and the quantum technologies for the security of data exchange

Quantum Physics: from everyday life applications to network security The word “quantum” relates to the world of the infinitely small, therefore the constituent elements of matter (molecules, atoms, particles, etc.). The objects around us respect the laws of classical physics for space and time: for example, if a car is traveling from point A to […]

The “Systems of Systems” viewpoint in telecommunications

Telecom systems and networks are caught in a massive long term evolution, from top-down-designed architectures under exclusive mastery of a single operator, towards federations of loosely coupled autonomous or semi-autonomous systems, managed by multiple independent actors, self-organizing in a bottom up fashion. The “systems of systems” viewpoint is meant to elicit the specificities of these new architectures, to analyze their non-engineered behaviors and evolutions, and to ultimately support their design and mastery under a new approach of engineering.
