Even as the fifth generation of wireless (5G) is on the horizon; scientists, research organizations, engineering firms, telecom OEMs and service providers have already started talking about 6G. Demands on bandwidth and speed are set to increase globally as users - both consumers and enterprises - will expect more and more from wireless mobile networks. 

In such a scenario, this whitepaper serves as a definitive primer to the unchartered telecom territory that is 6G. It starts on the topic with a simple definition of the term, explaining the key concepts involved in it and touching upon possible roaming issues. It builds the foundation of better resource management for 6G, explores privacy concerns and the toll on hardware equipment. It also delves into major areas of 6G research and introduces the speed versus spectrum capacity conundrum, finally concluding with applications of 6G.
