What will be the impact of 5G and 6G on education?

What could be the impact of 5G and 6G on education in your company?

With 6G, the Internet of Things can reach its true potential, for example with cars communicating reliably with each other to coordinate the road traffic. Augmented Reality can also become part of our daily lives

This new technology can then make the Metaverse a normal tool for every day work and schools. We will be able to evolve seamlessly in virtual worlds and experience different scenarios to learn, to make mistakes and improve ourselves. 


This video gives an interesting overview of the evolution of wireless telecommunication networks, from 0G – yes it exists! – to 6G.  

For example, did you know that: 

  • Every 10 years, there is a new generation of wireless networks. Speed increases drastically and so does power consumption. 
  • 0G: that was for the very first “mobile” chunky and bulky phones. 
  • 1G: the first time that the general public could have mobiles phones. They were quite big, if you can remember… 🙂
  • 2G: do you remember your old Nokia phone? That’s the first time you could also send SMS. 
  • 3G: up to 50 times faster than 2G. Without 3G, no Uber or Instagram.
  • 4G: 50-500 times faster than 3G. 
  • 5G: forget the “loading” time. Your experience becomes seamless! However, 5G uses millimeter-waves. They are very small and can be easily blocked – by a wall or a tree for example. Therefore, you need more antennas/transmitters. 
  • 6G: is scheduled for 2030. It will be fast enough to download 100 hours of Netflix in one second! However the 6G waves will have to be even smaller than the 5G millimeter-waves. 

Large companies such as Samsung and Qualcomm strongly invest in new generations of wireless networks. Indeed, not only does it provide a better experience to users and open new applications, it also gives them an opportunity to sell new products. They were building 5G in 2013, 9 years ago!

Tecnología al servicio de los suscriptores de Líneas Comerciales

Guest Author: Juan D’Alessandro

Siguiendo con nuestro ultimo post sobre el impacto de la inteligencia artificial en la industria de seguros hoy vamos a hablar de seguros comerciales. Con agrado, vemos cada vez mas iniciativas, proyectos de transformación integral y capital fluyendo a Insurtechs enfocadas en Líneas Comerciales. Años de mercado blando han puesto mucha presión en los equipos de suscripción. Ajustes, recortes y reestructuraciones que han sobrecargado el día a día de los suscriptores al punto de comprometer su nivel de servicio a los brokers y clientes.

Desde RiskTech, trabajamos en distintas iniciativas que se adaptan a las necesidades y requerimientos de nuestros clientes como son:

. Triagge en base al apetito de la compañía al momento de la recepción a fin de definir prioridades y atender los casos mas importantes.

. Alertas de parámetros o exposiciones en base a autoridad o pautas de suscripción que se generan en tiempo real al momento de cargar la cuenta.

. Generar de forma automática la mayor cantidad de información posible. Tanto de fuentes internas (pago de prima, siniestralidad, otras líneas activas, etc.) como externas (google maps, NatCat, Nathan, noticias de actualidad).

. Estimación de la siniestralidad potencial a nivel cuenta y portafolio en base a datos históricos.

Estas iniciativas apuntan a liberar a los técnicos de tareas repetitivas para poder enfocarse en actividades de estrategia, desarrollo de negocios y suscripción pura impactando de forma positiva el resultado de la compañía.

Innovation in Insurance?

Was it the first website of a Norwegian insurance company?

Many years ago, a Norwegian insurance company called at that time Uni Storebrand, gave the chance to the young and fresh graduate that I was to work as a trainee. The internship was to take place in Oslo. I had never been to Norway before so it was very exciting to have such a great opportunity! Discovering new cultures and working abroad was my dream.

Picture: A wonderful traineeship in a very supportive team, the marketing team of Uni Storebrand, 1995. It was not my idea to sit on the table. 🙂

So, as the date of the beginning of the internship drew closer, I flew to Oslo to get ready for what would be one of my most interesting internships. I had studied business and IT was my passion (together with learning languages of course). The person in charge of internships considered that I would be a good fit for the marketing team.

My boss was a friendly Norwegian woman. She was leading the marketing team in a professional and very human way. Trust was the key. I liked her management style very much. She gave me the task of finding an interesting way to introduce Uni Storebrand’s products to potential leads. Creating another flyer was an option, but she was very open to new ideas and would be supportive of doing something more innovative for clients.
After a few discussions and drafts, we developed the idea of preparing some 3.5″ floppy disks with some information about Storebrand’s insurance products. It would be different from all these flyers that people got and it would actually help recipients get more useful information and maybe even calculate premiums. Wow! 🙂 (mind you, this was 1995…)

As I worked on my assignment with enthusiasm fueled by the support from the marketing team, I remembered something that my friend Greg A., a doctor from Florida, had showed me a few years earlier when I was on holiday at their place. It was a network of networks that he used to share information with fellow medical specialists, digitally. There was no need to send disks around! It was better for the environment and faster. I did not know much more than this, but I got the green light to look into how to replace these 3.5″ disks by a solution based on that network of networks. In any case, I was an intern and we could try a few things.

That network of networks was called the Internet. It was a world with then-strange concepts such as websites, HTML, web servers, hosting, hyperlinks. At that time, there were 23,500 websites (see http://www.internetlivestats.com/total-number-of-websites). The year before, in 1994, there were 2,738 websites, 130 websites in 1993 and 1 in August 1991. As I am writing this text, the statistics on that webpage show 1,902,821,963, with several new websites being added every single second.

It was not clear to me how all these concepts and technologies worked together but a telecommunication company I visited assured me they could host a website. They didn’t have more information than this. Now, I had to see how to create one. Luckily, someone had written a book about this intriguing HTML. So I started studying it and created my first webpage! It was actually quite simple, once you knew… as you can imagine, it had an amazing design: something like “Hello World” in black over a white background… Wait, there was also a picture and even a hyperlink! Hehe…

Thanks to my colleagues, we soon had the content about each of the products, in Norwegian. Then, I was very excited to create my first “official” default.html page, i.e. the main page. It contained 10 bullet points, with each of them linking to another page. Last but really not least, we finally managed to upload it on a webserver, and there we were, Uni Storebrand’s first website was born!
